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.

Saturday, February 04, 2006

My parental units are here for the weekend. My Mum has always loved to play with dogs but she rarely gets the chance. Here she takes advantage of a captive audience. Rockwell had his large Kong and Mum crept slowly up the stairs toward him. He knew she wanted to play and so he agreed by making the “play bow” toward her.
Invitation to play
She continued to move slowly toward him and moved so slowly that he wasn’t sure what was eventually going to happen and stood up, so that he would be prepared for any eventuality.
Getting ready for action
Finally, he couldn’t stand the suspense any longer and bolted up the stairs. They repeated this action quite a few times before Mum got tired of it, long before Rockwell ever would.
Run away!  Run away!

Katherine, not my mother, that's for sure. Rockwell just had to roll his eyes at my Dad and he was lured into the game too.

Jenny and Nat, the picture above Rockwell's head is a photograph of my Uma (who passed away in June 2005). It is mounted on canvas so it looks like a painting. My brilliant husband took that picture, as he does with all the really nice ones of Rockwell.
