Today was Duka's third day of off-leash training in the park, aka. playing soccer w/ Daddy! Is he really an Irish Setter? Or is it just his dog-daddy (bird hunting champion) genes? Duka is so attentive, always watching where we are, never wanting to stray too far from us. And he's impressive endurance - even for his breed.
At the point we filmed this, he'd already been running for a good forty minutes, after a thirty minute walk to the park, in the summer heat. And J's the only one really tiring - poor J!
The best parts of this whole video are when J. kicks it and the crowd in the distance cheers. LOL. And when I called him and he came running. Truly remarkable!
He's just such an angel! I've never had an Irish Setter who was so disciplined and focused. We're so proud of him!!! XD
