Chase at 5-1/2 weeks

October 27, 2009

In a comment to the previous post (“Fronts”), Kaye suggested I post a photo of Chase at 5-1/2 weeks.  I don’t think we have a stacked photo from that age, but in this photo (taken by Tom or Carolyn), Chase, the artist formerly known as Ikey, went outside for the first time.  While his siblings clustered together in the crisp November air, little Ikey/Chase trotted off to explore.  Through the fence, he met his older half brother Digger.  When I saw this photo, I emailed Carolyn to put a yellow sticky on him announcing that he was “Penni’s puppy”.  I never changed my mind.

Chase meets Digger

    Is this some sort of miracle, nobody listens to me..LOL, I’ve decided you cannot have Chase AND Holmes, or you will become too jaded.

      After 15+ years of bashing my head against the wall with German Shepherd Dogs, I’m entitled to have some (healthy) winners living at my house. I promise not to getjaded! We really are tickled with Holmes and Watson. We plan to repeat the breeding as soon as Phoebe comes in season, and see if she might give us the rest of the litter.

    The similarity between the picture of Chase meeting Digger, and Chase “on alert” during his temperament test is amazing.

    I’m so glad that they both look nice (even the white headed one)…now if we can only get GIRLS…

    Sigh, I’ve been trying for 5 years to get a girl from Phoebe…

    Glad that you’ve decided to repeat it!

    This is a great photo of Ikey/Chase communing with Digger. You can see what a little pistol he is, even at this age! I can see why you put an “X” on him that day.

    I actually have a similar one of Denali as a teeny pup, looking through the fence at her great grandpa, the amazing Juneau. She was completely focused on him and he was leaning down so they were nose to nose. It really seemed as if he was giving her some of his world wisdom and wishing her the best for the new life she was about to undertake. We took her home the next day and it would be our last time seeing Juneau (sniff).
