  1. Videos in Which Holmes & Watson Discover Stuff

    Again today the weather is nice so the boyz got to go outside.  They are bold adventurers now and went to the far corners of the front yard.  They found “stuff” — leaves and twigs, the big dogs in the other part of the yard.  Perhaps next weekend they might explore the back yard.  There is a pond and fountain there, so a bit more care is required.

    When the puppies came back into the house, I gave them the giant bone that had been in a CorgiAid auction basket.  The bone is still a big as one of the boyz, but they are delighted with it — treating it as if it were their major kill for the day.

    We’re having a busy puppy day.  The boyz are wearing little collars and we started leash training.  It goes pretty well when the human is offering some deli thin-sliced meat for staying up with her.  Yesterday we did nails and another worming, so today we could do training things.  Of course, we used the stacking blocks — the puppies are catching on to that exercise — another one during which they get great treats.  We went outside (video a little later if what I took is at all entertaining), and I had the chance to watch Holmes, on his own, go from Point A to Point B.  He’s always trotted, but I haven’t been able to see him from the side.  He’s usually coming to me or getting away from me.  Today I watching his side gait.  He’s free and easy, very balanced in movement.  I like him very much and REALLY wish he were a girl!  Since I don’t want him to have a complex, I’ll stop saying that, but you all know it’s true.

    Holmes is also balancing his right ear — very cute.  Watson is trying to do both ears at one time, so continues to puff them out, creating airplane wings.  When Watson gets outside, he uses his nose.  He tracks where the big dogs last went.  I think Alden is taking the right dog.  Shall we just plan on “CT* Elyan C-Myste Elementary My Dear Watson” — with some agility letters stuck on at the end?
