Working means many things to many people. But in the world of dogs (as in my two) work means the following:
For Ellie, – collecting sticks while out walking
Ellie finding lost tennis balls.
Getting mucky while finding the smallest trace of scent hidden in the weirdest of places. Today was weird it was a pipe buried in the ground.
Bob – sitting.
I think you get the idea there is a pattern here all pointing to one thing – Bob likes to sit and be sociable while Ellie loves to work.
