The Homeboy is Twelve Weeks Old (& Video)-Amended

December 13, 2009

. . . so it’s time for some stacked photos and video.  Holmes tries so hard to please (when he’s not with his dad learning to be a baddog).  We were fighting the late afternoon winter sun, but some of these photos are pretty representative of what I see every day in this little guy.  The videos — well, Brock was a bit far away and the sun is even more of a problem because I can’t change the shadows.  I’ll look at the footage again and see if any of it is fit for human consumption.

First, just for fun, here is a photo of Chase at 11-1/2 weeks.

Chase 11 and half weeks

Now, here is “C-Myste The Game’s Afoot at Elyan” (a/k/a Holmes) at twelve weeks old.

PC130005 - goodI wanted you to see his cute face

PC130026He’s so darned cute!

And the video — a few splendid steps in this

I think he gets to stay a while longer.

    I see a lot of his mom in him now.

      Fortunately his Dad contributed as well — some of his happy working temperament along with great presence. It seems like a lovely combination. Now if we can just get a girl (or three) that look(s) like Holmes!

  2. C-Myste says:

    I think that Holmes really is a combination of the best of both mom and dad. He definitely got his low-stationed stature and sweeping croup and tailset from mom. And his freckles, too.

    • myeye says:

      . . . and I love the freckles. I’ve not had a Cardi with an abundance. He has them on his little fat feet and sprinkled across his nose — they just add to his adorableness.

  3. He has got such a cute face — I just want to snorgle those ears!

  4. I really like him this week! I wish puppies came with a crystal ball.

    By the way, excellent comment on showcardi. It’s kind of hard to believe that somebody who shows dogs wrote that down.

  5. OK, I LOOOOVE him right now. Send him to Oregon, QUICK! 😉

    I hope he looks like THIS as an adult. Very nice 🙂 I can’t wait for round 2!
