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.

I heard Peter playing with the dog so I grabbed the camera and went to see what I could see. I loved the way Rockwell was sitting with his bum one step up. He was poking paws through the railing but I didn’t manage to capture any of that action. Peter tried to help by offering Rockwell the carrot he was eating.

Then Peter switched from the carrot to kibble and I got this next photo. Fun stuff.

Careful between the bars there, Rockwell! A friend of mine got his head stuck like that when he was a toddler, so bad they had to call the fire department to come free him.

His dad the fire chief never heard the end of it!

Hi Jenny, Rockwell used to be able to fit his head between the bars when he first got here and I was really careful about discouraging this for fear it might get stuck. Now his head is so big he can't get it past the eyes (which are all scrunched up in the effort to get the treat). No fears any more about getting stuck! Anyway, those are just metal bars and a car jack would work to pry them apart. We're pretty handy around here. :)
