Sky picked up an ear infection somewhere. Been treating it for a week now. Irrigate the ears. What a joy. Fill the ear (two person job), pull the ear flap over quickly, rub, watch the ears flap, wipe the meds off my face. Back to the vet Friday.
He is in clicker training again. Still wants to play every chance he gets. I can put him at sit-stay, walk to the other side of the room, turn and call him. He stays, then comes at a run through the crowd, unless another dog gets close. Then, he wonders. Heel is a real pain, as the room is not big enough for all of us to walk. But outside of the class, he walks with a loose leash really well, and will walk nicely without a leash. Wife is actually driving him once in a while. Told her several times that unless she steers the leash once in a while, , he just won't walk nicely for her.
Picked up about 50' of used wooden fence. Made out of real wood and heavy. That should take care of one side of the run. Now to get wify her own post hole digger. She doesn't seem too impressed with mine. She keeps saying we can just nail it to the trees on that side of the yard, but I have my doubts. May just rent a power post hole digger. 11 holes through hard clay may be more than I care to dig.
Hot Shot looks like he is tolerating the pup. Just a ball of fur. Glad you found the problem.
Jr is getting well socialized at the dog park. Found some friends, some not so friendly. None actually mean. It is interesting watching the dogs interact off leash. Jr was called an "instigator" which may be accurate. He wants to play. Several others must be middle kids, cause they try to moderate interactions. The retrievers want to chase balls, Sky chases retrievers and has no interest in balls.
