Life So Far

I've been living with the human four months so far, and her training is a work in progress. I think she is going to work out!

I haven't gained much weight, but have filled out with muscle and do not look like the skinny scarecrow I was when I first moved in. The food dish is a magical thing, and the human fills up twice a day. That's a big thing for a formerly starving boy.

I have passed Basic Obedience Class, and the human insists that I confess to lifting my leg on a wall in the classroom. My leash manners have improved, but it is oh, so HARD to heel when there is a squirrel in view! Recall? I am great in the house, but out in the greenbelt? Yeah, no. There's too many exciting smells & things to hunt. She claims I have something called "strong prey drive".

My BFF is a Belgian Sheepdog named Lucy and she has taught me the art of bitey face! While I am half her size, I have learned to fly through the air like Superman at her to entice her into play.

We go to the dog parks fairly often and I am told I have excellent dog greeting skills. I like playing chase with a Sibe, but she gets a bit rough at times, and I have to run back to the human with my "worried" face to be rescued.

This life, so far, is going well. The human insists on good behavior, and I insist on charming my way out of trouble with big amber eyes, the classic Cocker lean, & tail wags. We have high hopes for each other! :D
