Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter

February 27, 2008


I recently bought a new brand of treats which are especially, how shall I say, fragrant. Our routine these days when I take the boys out is to get them all saddled up, grab my camera if it's not too dark, and put a few treats in my jacket pocket. We then go out to the woods and I walk all the way to the back. Spenser keeps busy surveying but Clayton is only interested in what's in my pocket and so he follows me with surprising alacrity. At the midpoint of our walk (thus insuring he gets a decent amount of exercise) I slip him a treat as a reward. Spenser is generally immune to my machinations but once he got a whiff of these new deer-poop-and-rotting-carcass treats (ok, just kidding, but they really do have a strong odor) he followed me for the rest of our walk as well. And that explains their nice pose here: Clayton is practically shaking knowing another treat is on its way, while Spenser busily pretends not to care.
