So Spotted Dog (occasionally known as Bailey) is a little tired from all of the tracking we've been doing since I got back. That doesn't stop me from picking on him, of course, and because I love his bay (and it drives my daddy crazy), I asked him to talk to me before I give him his dinner tonight. It went a little like this: Me: Bai, sit. B: -sits- I'm a good boy! Me: Good! Bark for me! B: BLARGH Me: ... B: -coughack- BLARwhoooOOO Apparently he's lost his voice. Maybe this answers Lindsay's question about how long she should rest Traveler after long workouts? Until his voice comes back???
