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.

Peter took some nice, available light (no flash) portraits of Rockwell this afternoon in the sun but since he used my camera, I loaded them onto my Flickr site. Here they are for your enjoyment.

And I really like his expression in the next one.

What fantastic shots. And those eyes - my goodness, I'm in love with Rockwell, again and again and again. :D

Thanks for the wonderful pics!

Thanks furkids! He really does have expressive eyes - they are more almond shaped that Uma's were so they look exotic to me. It just occured to me that the (real) photographer in this house's name is Pete too!

He IS sweet Katherine. I really don't think he is ever bad on purpose.

What adorable pictures! Some person is going to have a time keeping folks from petting Rockwell in his harness when he gets through training.

K&R, I am having a hard time getting people not to pet him now! I hope he will learn to look aloof when he gets older.

Such cute pics, Julia.

About the dog walking too fast. How about checking with somebody who trains show dogs. Jessie is perfect on a loose lead. She just walks at your pace and never pulls.

I don't know how she learned it, but she's good. Another thing. She does not "sit" as they take points off for that in the show ring. She will "lie down"though really well.

I hope you get good results. He is so cute and growing so fast. I love the one on the stairs that looks as if he is outlined in black. That's a super picture and so are the ones of him in the sun.

Well, they are all good and fun to read about.B.

B. Rockwell would just love you, I know it! CGDB has puppy obedience classes on Wednesdays now, I just found out, at a facility in the country. It's like a big barn and they train for agility and stuff there. I will have to rent a car to get out there but I plan to go some time soon so this little terror can learns something from someone else. He is right now barking at me to play and it is deafening. Must go!
