Growing Up

I’d forgotten how much time a puppy takes up.  Thank goodness for Lacey – she keeps him entertained for most of his waking hours.  He’s had 2 sets of shots so we’ve started leash walks around the neighbourhood.  We are having some trouble with traffic noises but he recovers very quickly so hopefully he’ll figure it out.  He isn’t noise sensitive to anything else that I’ve discovered.

He’s happy to meet people and other dogs.  He’s come to daycare for a few hours and did great.  He was more reserved than I expected but he was pretty happy the whole time.  He likes to sit back and watch the action before getting involved.

He is very polite and will patiently sit and wait for cookies and is also very polite with other dogs. I guess growing up with two crabby dogs has some benefits.  :)

Anyway, here is a summary of a month’s worth of photos.  He’s changing so fast!

Still Growing

The little man has been doing great.  The girls haven’t corrupted him into being a barker yet, and hopefully it will stay that way.  He’s still just so easy – he’s happy and easy and content.  Coulee is playing with him regularly now and the house has been quite chaotic because of it.  But it’s nice to see them all having fun together.

We’ve started doing off leash walks these past few days.  He’s been fantastic.  He stays nearby and comes running at full speeds when you call.  He loves to watch the geese when they fly overhead.

Poor dude managed to get Cherry Eye last week.  We’ll be getting it fixed on Dec 16 – we felt waiting until his neuter was just too long.  His brother Oliver (aka Kermit) also got it and he’s unfortunately got it in his second eye too.  We are hoping that Summit’s second eye goes before the 16th if it is going to! I’ve been editing it out of most of his pictures because frankly I’d rather not remember him like that.  It’s isn’t too gross, but it isn’t flattering either.  He is great at taking his eye drops which is great because we are doing them 4 times a day.

I still need to get a decent family photo but we’ve been practicing…

The girls are doing well. Lacey’s recovered from her surgery and all the stitches have finally fallen out.  Her hair almost covers the scar and I’m sure once it is full length you’ll never know.

Clumber

This is a Clumber spaniel at the Monaco Dog Show earlier in the year.  Clumbers are, I believe, the heaviest of all the spaniels.

Not a breed we see often n the south of France although there is one who lives in Menton.

A Mastiff? In Agility?

This is pretty amazing, that a dog this size can compete in agility. He may not be the fastest dog in the ring, but I bet he’s the biggest! The video was shot during the Rocky Mountain Cluster Dog Show at The National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado early last year. Until next time, Good […]

The Adventures of Chef Big Dog

Now that our Puppy Up events have winded down for the season, I’m up in CT helping out a friend with her food truck and it’s been quite an experience so far.
I’ve cooked for farmer’s markets, festivals, and for hundreds of families and friends I’ve stayed with throughout our journey but the food truck thing is a whole nother level. 
I’ll be sharing my culinary adventures, how and why YBD became CBD, and what’s next in 2016 at www.chefbigdog.com

Saturday Survey: Puppies for Christmas

As I’ve stated a time or three, I have strong feelings against giving puppies for Christmas because they often end up in shelters when the giftee isn’t prepared to commit to a destructive puppy or a full-grown adult dog. But, I know it is a practice that continues to be popular. I’m curious as to […]
