Chimera was very well-behaved when he visited my friends last week.
It's unusual to see him settle down when we're at someone else's home, especially right next to me -- although he's becoming more and more cuddly as he gets older.
I'm happy that he's used to traveling with me.
I want to have a dog I can take anywhere! (Once we're over the reactivity, of course... we're slowly making progress.)
He went on many hikes this week.
I actually prefer not to take him on group hikes, because then I can't work on his "OMG DOGS" reaction when we come across new dogs on the trail. Sometimes my schedule requires that I bring him along, though.
This morning my groomer friend trimmed his ear hair, to help his ears stand up properly. Compare these ears to the ones pictured up top!!
On Monday we will be visiting Sherry and Jacques and she will help me prop his ears up with moleskin so that they will grow into the proper shape.
Look at those Bambi eyes!
We got home and saw that his Hurtta winter jacket had come in the mail!
It will keep him nice and warm when he's playing in the snow in Tahoe. If needed, I can also put a sweater on him underneath -- I bought a new red and grey one to match his coat!
It covers his belly properly, and there are straps in the back which go under his legs, to keep the back of the coat in place.
