Today was GP's turn to go the farm with me. He's been scrapping witha other dogs recently and I get the feeling he just needs some attention. He seemed so happy to be pulled from his run. At first he wouldn't leave my side when I let him out in back to relieve himself. GP was perfect in the car. I can imagine he was relieved to be out of the kennel pack.

At the farm GP met our neighbor's submissive retriever. They got along fine and then GP and I went to the field. I was surprised that the semi still wasn't loaded but it gave us time to play. I let GP go off-lead for awhile because he has such a wonderful recall; it usually involves jumping and swinging his butt into me to rub.

I enjoyed playing with GP until the trailer was loaded. GP can't jump in and out of the semi like Crockett but he let me help him. Inside the semi he's completely relaxed. Mostly he curls up on the floor in the back and sleeps. (He did raise his head for me to take a photo.) I took him into the elevator just to retrieve the ticket and he had no problems. It started raining as we returned to the semi. The rain intensified on our way home.

That's it for the day - one load (955 bushels with room to spare). The combines were stowed when I returned. I put the semi in the barn and shuttled to get my Jeep. (GP waited in the semi but did want to join me. See photo.) Now I'm lounging in the back of the semi with GP. Despite being on hard plywood (where a new mattress will soon go) and being under a harsh fluorescent light it's a joy to have GP sleeping next to me as I type and listen to the rain.
