Puppy walking

An adventure in looking after a puppy until it is old enough to be properly trained as a guide dog for the blind.

Last night, we played music for the first time since Rocky came here. We’d watched tv with him and noticed that he responded to certain sounds more than others. This time, we put on some SuperTramp from the late 70s and he was transfixed! He sat with Peter on the floor and listened intently, cocking his head every now and then. It seemed as though he didn’t want to get any closer to the sound either and when it was a little too loud, he backed away from the speakers. We really enjoyed watching him listen.

Unfortunately, Rocky was up again at 2am, because he had to poop. Yesterday was rainy all afternoon so I didn’t go walking with him around the parking lot. Maybe that was it. I keep hoping his schedule will even out and he will poop right after each meal but this has not happened yet. At the beginning, puppy life for the human anyway is all about pooping This morning, he declined to poop after breakfast and now, despite multiple goings out, he has still not pooped. However, he is about to get lunch so that may be the catalyst. And we are going to walk around this afternoon!
