Bodie is an energetic, lively dog. The way he runs around backyard is a sight to behold. If he is barking at someone out front and he hears activity on the trails, he can run faster than any previous dog I have owned! He has worn a racetrack around the backyard. When Bodie is having fun, it can almost be impossible to bring him into the house. But it has been really hot here in the Pacific Northwest lately, and it is much easier to bring to get his attention. Just ask if he wants fresh water and he runs for the back door!
