For instance, Lacey and I were going out for a ride today and we got over to where 4 different roads all meet. We usually turn to the right to go on the easiest to get to trails, but today Lacey was really pushing for going straight (we've never gone that way before since it's a lot more riding on the road to get to the trails) so I decided "what the heck" and let her go straight. After a bit we got to the trails and once we reached the end of them (maybe half a mile down) I turned her around to go home. Well, we got about halfway back up this trail (towards home) and she started acting weird so I had her stop. When we started again, she immediately turned around (I let her because it's amusing to watch her mind work) and headed back down the trail. She maneuvered around the gate at the bottom of the trail and walked straight out into the neighborhood there. I was basically crying, I was laughing so hard. She was being all weird becuase she wanted to look at the neighborhood! Silly girl.
Anyway, we went through the neighborhood and down to the cemetery where we had a little run and then headed home.
I love it when she takes me on adventures like that. She never goes faster than a walk on her own but she gets so into "her job"-ie taking me somewhere. I guess it's just great to see her personality coming out...
Does anybody else do this?
Also, we had a great ride, btw.
