Mom and I went on a quick walk when we got there, then saw Beth pull up with the boys. I showed the puppy Flynt the proper way to greet other dogs --
|"Like this, little one! Calm, quiet, and a bowed head."|
His brother, Moss, didn't want to say "hello", so I didn't approach. That's part of good manners, too.
We all went on a nice walk together - helping socialize Flynt and get him used to just ignoring other pups. Speaking of ignoring, Mom asked me to pose by Willow Lake, so I did this:
After that, I posed with the boys.
|"Cam! Cammie! Cam?!?!"|
"Does anyone hear anything? Oooh, look - fishermen!"
|Flynt: "So you don't have to look at your mom when she's talking to you?"|
Moss: "How could you not listen? I hang on my Beth's every WORD!"
"Ha roo woo roo. So much to learn. So very much to learn!"
Siberians and Border Collies have very different approaches in life! I think Maggie needs to go on the next training mission - she could REALLY show those guys how it's done!
Anyway ... we walked the length of Eagle Pass Trail, which was really fun! There are lots of good smells there, and lots to see and hear.
|"Look, Mom! Gooses out on the River Pond!"|
The Border Collies did something called "heeling" on our walk -- they walked right by Beth's side. Moss always looks up at her like he's checking to see if he's doing it right or if there's something else she wants him to do. Flynt is still learning the "heel". As you can see, I took the point. As a Siberian Husky, it is in my DNA to be out in front of my biped. I don't pull, but think "sled dog". That's in my blood. Also, mom wants to see if I'm trying to snarf anything. Actually not me so much in this case (cough, Maggie, cough), but that's just what we do.
Back out on the road, we did some more posing.
|Me, Flynt, and Moss|
As you can see, I was very happy. And the sun was in my eyes.
Mom did a closeup of little Flynt:
Is he adorable enough?
I had such fun with him and Moss!
|"What a fun morning!"|
Oh. Flynt is still at the "everything goes in the mouth" stage. I really think he and Maggie would get along splendidly! She could teach him SO very much! I should talk to Mom and Beth about this!
Another successful training mission in the bag!
