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.

Tied to the bench
Nothing new to report. It’s another drizzly day but we got out for a walk earlier when it wasn’t actually raining. Rocky would pull on the leash occasionally but would also respond very well when I pulled him back with a “Rocky steady” or “leave” command. At the end of the walk, as usual, he protested about being taken back inside and tugged on the leash with his teeth but I played it cool and gently coaxed him in. He tried a bit of the Devil Dog but even that I managed to nip in the bud and popped him into his crate for a 10 minute time out. The photo is from yesterday’s wild walk in the wind. I wanted to take a nice picture of him sitting by the bench but you can see from the tension on the leash that the seagulls were much more interesting than I was.

He does look like a real little man in this, doesn't he? But it was just before he tried to gnaw my arm off so I can't get TOO carried away with his good looks! :)
