Pictures, and training update.

After the obedience lesson yesterday, Chimera and I napped, and then my sister visited. Cai already loves Auntie Agnes, because she's always excited to see him, but handles him in a gentle and dog-friendly way.

He likes to lie on our feet while chewing.
 We spent the evening catching up and giving Cai lots of love.

How could anyone resist that face?

Today I had to leave him at daycare while I hiked with client dogs. I'm hoping that in a few weeks he'll be able to stay at home while I'm out for a few hours. This afternoon I put him in his crate when he was tired, and he slept while I showered and then went outside and gardened. He was still sleepy when I woke him up and pulled him out. I will be crating him and leaving him alone for longer periods soon, or for short periods when he's more awake.

A couple of pictures from daycare, blurry because they were taken with my camera phone:
The terrier mix is one of his best buds.
On our way home from work, we stopped at a local pet store and I let him walk around and sniff, and we did a little heeling practice. He got treats from the store owner.

The rest of the day was spent quietly at home. He played with Jasper a lot. We did a number of little training sessions -- handling, go to mat, lie down, dumbbell, failed foot targeting, nose target, jumping up and hitting an open drawer to close it, don't eat the treat container, putting front feet on a balance disc, and rewarding sits when he offered them. Lots of fun stuff! I need to start working on crate games and tooth brushing.
