Elizabeth77 Posted January 6, 2009 Report Share Posted January 6, 2009 I do not know if I should deal somehow with Meg's intensity on the following occasion. I refer to throwing stones , balls for her. With stones in particular if we are on the beach she gets this amazing look of concentration in her eyes and just wants me to throw stones for her to chase. Now she seldom finds the stone and seems happy to just dash in the general direction and then straight back to me to have another stone thrown. If another dog approaches her during this performance it is so obvious Meg wants nothing to do with the dog, just stones. She will bark at the dog and make it quite clear she is busy and push off!! The intensity of this stone chasing is , to me, amazing. It shows in another way with the ball when at home. Not having a clue about bringing the ball back, when she finds it she will sit by it for ages waiting for me to come and throw it again. Weird. I feel this intensity may not be good. Should I stop the stone throwing? I am not worried about her breaking teeth or swallowing the stones cos she never really finds them. It also does give her lots of excercise. This is the only area in which I have seen her show such almost unnatural concentration. Am I worrying unduly? Comments most welcome. Thank you.
