He’s a genius…

Although much diminished, Bodhi still has the occasional urge to leap around madly (see video —>)

He mostly does it in the yard as I don’t allow it in the house. When there’s no snow, he has a hole in the yard where I let him dig at will. But now the ground is completely covered with snow and I usually try to direct him at the giant mound at the end of the driveway, but that doesn’t always work. Sometimes he just goes nuts in the center of the yard, leaping and growling and eating the snow. I added a little video of this to the flickr roll —–>

I am glad to see him do this especially after his heat stroke this summer, because I am glad to see he has the energy. On the other hand, I worry a lot about him running in to stuff – the fire pit, the wood pile, the fire pit. Did I mention the fire pit has a cement block ring around it? Whenever he is leaping and cavorting, I freak out that he is going to pounce on that and break a leg, but he never does. In fact, sometimes he leaps around it. It’s amazing to me, even when it was the most covered with snow, when the snow was equal around it and I could barely make out where it was, he would miss it every time.

Yes, you can see the sticks, but not the sides...

I’m impressed by his spatial concepts ability. He didn’t get that from me, must have got it from my ex. 🙂  He has the same sense about his leash. He has one of those bungie leashes, one of those retractable leashes (thanks to my favorite rumi) and he knows exactly how far it goes. I don’t mean that he goes out to the end of the leash and stops, I mean that just before it runs out, he slows, and if I am not moving towards him, he stops. Even when running (except when he is bouncing and leaping)! And he isn’t even looking at me.

I know this isn’t particular to Bodhi – Detta did it too – but I am still impressed.
