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.

Sock Retrieval:

I preface the photo essay with a few comments. All summer long, I never wear socks. Except this morning I wore them to the gym and then, because they didn't get much wear, tucked them into my gym shoes for next time. Rockwell hasn't seen Mom's socks since April and so was inevitably drawn to them. When I saw him sitting on the stairs with something white hanging out of his mouth, I could tell by the set of his ears that he knew he was in the wrong. He therefore did not protest at all when I removed the offending object. Look at those ears in the final photo - he couldn't get a scolding looking that cute.

It was very easy to open his mouth - my knuckles aren't white or anything.

You can't be mad at that face!

LOL Taz loves anything from the washing basket. As long as it has been worn. I always praise him saying "What have you got there..??" and he comes and walks up to me and drops it in front of me. Before I had to chase him around the house so we are improving!!

Yes Eve, if I didn't keep the laundry basket up on a chair, Rockwell would probably have socks all over the house.

Hi Erynn (or is it Erin?), welcome to the world of puppy raising! I will add you to my blog roll and tidy it up too, so it gets split between the puppy raisers and all the other dog blogs. Good luck with the work that is ahead of you.
