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.

Rockwell’s home! And pooped.
pooped pooch
Apparently, while it is good that he has a keen desire to please, he tries to do everything in a hurry and if he keeps this up, he may burn out. So our task for the summer is to show him that he can take life slower, take it easy. Don’t worry - be happy. We’ll chill and be low key and hopefully, he will follow suit. I think this should be manageable, especially as the summer heats up and we all start to move at a slower pace.

One thing I will start to do more than I have and that is to go out with him wearing the jacket and then just sit and watch people go by. Shona said that she did that today at a mall and after a while, he just lay on his side and snoozed. For the first bit however, he wanted to greet and jump on every soul that went by. Before anything else though, he is going to sleep all day tomorrow to recover from his night in a kennel with another dog!

Poor Nat! Your typing looks like you've been having some sleepless nights! I'm sure Petey will calm down eventually.
