Riley update

Today is the first day that we are to take the rubber protectors off Riley's shock collar. Riley had already been respecting the boundary with just the warning beeps, but a couple times she chased the ball into the "no zone" and got zapped. Poor girl. Now she won't go within 10 feet of the flags, which is what we want. We're supposed to keep tempting her to go toward the boundaries (even call her, which I will not do because I'm sure she will NEVER come when called after that). We'll see how well the correcting works when woodland creatures are around.

I am so glad to be able to play fetch with Riley in the yard again!
