Today was one of my super long workdays, so no field trip. However Chimera did get to attend our Puppy Social! He mostly played with a tiny yorkie who is 20 weeks old and fierce and wore him out. He spent the day in one of the dog rooms rather than in the offices. I talked to my boss and we agreed that the flea infestation must be in the offices, rather than in my apartment. (Though I'm still glad that I treated our home to prevent them from settling in here, too.)
After work I took Cai into a small penned area and did a "choose to heel" game, walking in a big circle to the left and rewarding him every time he happened to come within two feet of heel position. After a little while he seemed to catch on, but I kept going for too long and he lost interest. Very common training mistake, and one that I am not immune to.
I put Cai into his crate a bit early for bedtime. Usually I let him run around and be crazy with his toys until he passes out. I could see him slowing down so I went ahead and put him away. He's done a bit of whining off and on, but not too loud, and he's trying to find a comfortable sleeping spot in between the fits. He needs to learn how to calm himself down.
Both ears are making an attempt to stand up, but failing halfway.
