Through the Looking Glass

Apologies to Lewis Carroll, but after all Doc Savage is from the literary litter and this weekend he made it through the Looking Glass drill with little trouble.

I began by having him retrieve a pile of bumpers, then began the Looking Glass drill by tossing the bumper past the poison birds. I had to initially stop him from retrieving poison birds a couple of times but it didn’t take long before he was focusing on the bumper I tossed for him.

After a couple of successful retrieves, I placed the bumper rather than tossing it, and he was working the drill to perfection.

I worked Mia on the drill next, and as with Doc, started her out with retrieving a bumper pile. She ran the drill flawlessly, except for making her return retrieves over the line of bumpers instead of between them.

With Dakota, it was just the bumper pile. The clouds that had kept the temperature fairly moderate were gone and it was heating up.

Elvis was last and again, it was just the bumper pile for him. Even though he loves sunbathing in the heat, he was becoming hot with the retrieves. After we finished, he headed for the ditch to cool off.
