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.

Not much happening around here and no chance to blog on it because yesterday, Rocky bounced his Kong under this computer desk and it hit the power bar off switch which somehow messed up the modem and I was without computer until Peter got home. Ack! I felt so out of touch. So I sewed instead and waited until things got fixed and posted that to my sewing blog (http://juliasewing.blogspot.com/).

Today, the lawn people came to pick up leaves (no mowing and maybe that’s the end of mowing for the season). They use leaf blowers a lot and one came by the house. Rocky has heard them before and a couple of weeks ago, he was introduced to someone outside who was using a leaf blower. This time however, and maybe it was because he was in the safety of his home, he got a little rambunctious about it. And I egged him on by asking, “what’s that? what’s that?”. One person came right up to the front door and I got three snaps of Rocky:
1 Rocky and the leaf blower
Wagging his tail in anticipation of seeing someone
2 Rocky and the leaf blower
Getting ready to attack or run away
3 Rocky and the leaf blower
Running away

It wasn’t fearful though - no raised hackles or anything. More playful running if you ask me.
