Lucy and Roca
We took care of Chris and Kate's dog, Rocca, for a few days. One of the most beautiful dogs I've met, a sheperd with perfect markings, soft ears, and a plume of a tail. I think she is about three.
She and Lucy got along well, played together with chasing, snarling, bump and run. No conflicts over food or spaces. They both would sit before you looking up expectantly for a biscut.
We took them on long walks once or twice a day. Their gaits were so different. Rocca lopes like a wolf who could go all day. Lucy wiggles along like a speed walker. The video doesn't really show this but I liked the shadow legs.
