For all of my adult outdoor life I have prided myself on being terribly awful at coiling a rope. (Feels good to be proud of some skill, even if it is “terribly awful” at something!) This started with rock climbing, progressed to mountaineering, canyoning and caving. Admittedly I am marginally capable of attaching a bow line to a whitewater boat. But those days are forever over. This dog learned a new trick.
