Willie the Labradoodle and Mr. Darcy at the Garden at the Latvian Embassy

By

Since Willie the hyperactive-Labrodoodle-puppy joined my household a couple of years ago, I have been trying to think up ways to wear him out.  The idea is to find some form of exercise that will wear him out so he won't have the energy to chew up my favorite shoes.

Now, my friend and neighbor, Beth, has a new addition to her household- an energetic standard poodle puppy named Mr. Darcy - the heartthrob of all of my friends who are Pride and Prejudice fans.

So today, we took them to the yard of the building that served for years at the Latvian Mission, then the Latvian Embassy when they became a real country.  Recently they moved out into fancier digs. 

So we brought Mr. Willie and Mr. Darcy there for an hour or so of heavy physical exercise.  

Willie Chased Mr. Darcy.

Then, Mr. Darcy chased Willie.

They chased each other around like lunatics and then Mr. Darcy went home and took a very long nap.  Mr. Willie came home and ran around the house. 

Is he too tired to chew my shoes?  He's eying a pair right now that I'd better scoop up off the floor.  Right now they are dog bait!

So now I'm wondering what the Latvians are going to do with ths piece of property that is pretty vacant and forlorn looking down the street from me!  Maybe Willie and I should make a few phone calls!  It's time that dog started to earn his dog chow!
