ondine and fergus

Young, feisty, rambunctious Ondine is teaching blind, toothless, mellow old Fergus how to play tag. She jets around the backyard on rocket boosters and swoops past him in a blur. He follows the sound of her paws pounding past, but by the time he has taken just a few steps, she has already completed a full-speed backyard circuit and she's on her way back to swoop past in the opposite direction. He turns and trots a few steps after her, and she dashes by again, over and over. If he gets lost among the garden boxes, she circles around him until he turns and follows in the direction she wants him to go. It's fun to watch them figure out the game together.
