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?
