Earning Her Treats

This is January, the dead of Winter, in Vancouver. There’s still some grass and it’s green, not lush green but at least there’s no snow.

This dog has to work for her extras. She finished playing around with the other dogs and in/out of the water and now she has to conquer her fear of heights.

Her original name was Lassie and that got changed to Octavia. I forgot to ask why. Octavia is afraid of heights like stairs, tree trunks… She doesn’t have a great sense of equilibrium either. So her owner makes Octavia work and gives her small biscuits as payment.
