Rockwell, the demure

Happy New Year Rockwell! I too alternate between lifting and squatting. Sometimes I just stand normally and pee, but my parents don't like that because sometimes I accidentally pee on the back of one of my front paws. Then if we are getting into the car they get all upset. Humans are so wierd!

Indy, I haven't seen Rockwell pee on his own feet but he's come awfully close. But the guide dogs would rather he didn't lift a leg because it's the start of marking territory and that's a no-no too, for a real guide dog.

Thanks Laura, happy new year to you too! Some of the photos are by Peter even though I'm not giving him the credit here.

What a sweet a boy! Looking very sleepy in his "demure" picture.

Katherine, he may actually be sleepy in this pic. Like all dogs, when tired he can fall asleep standing up.
