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 this great series of photos which show that Rockwell is still getting bigger - or at least his jaws are!
hooking his jaw on the big toy
gathering up the smaller toy too
his toy collection

Wonderful indeed!!! Is Peter a pro photographer?

All three are super - I like the last one best. Guess he's asking for help to get his lower jaw unstuck?

Oh Rockwell, you're so sweet!!

Rockwell is certainly growing, I'll look forward to his first visit here amongst the hens and the Big Turk, my pet wild turkey.

Big Turk will sort him out.

Hey FurKids, Peter (mine anyway!) is a systems manager for a living but certainly has the eye and the talent to be a pro photographer. He is more of an artist however. Being a pro photographer involves doing work for others and it is a lot of mundane work, so he prefers to keep photopraphy as an enjoyable hobby.

Dr. Cox, welcome to comments! It will certainly be interesting to see how Rockwell reacts to your birds. I saw how he wanted to retrieve those ducks. Maybe Sadie will sort him out too.

Oh my goodness, can he get any cuter? Especially that last pic. Were there treats in the kongs or was he just playing?

Perhaps he's just playing python and unhinging his jaw so he can make the swallow!

Katherine, we haven't ever put treats in the kongs for him, as the only treats he is allowed are the occasional kibble for good behaviour. He was just gathering them up for fun. He really is a sweetie.

Jenny, I hadn't thought about him being part python. I do know, true to retrievers elsewhere, that he is a collector. You should see the backyard - it is strewn with white stones that he has picked up from under the house overhang and left on the lawn while playing.
