Fred is now six months old.
Fred The Newf – Six Months Old
Fred did well with his dog sitter while I was in Kentucky.
He grew a lot in the short amount of time I was gone.
I’m pretty sure Fred is glad to have me home.
Fred gets very excited when he sees me packing up camera gear.
He knows it means it’s time “to go to work.”
Of course, Fred isn’t really working yet.
I won’t have him carry any gear until he’s done growing.
I don’t want to hurt him.
But, Fred “helps” me shoot anyway.
He accompanies me.
He sits and waits when I ask him to.
He knows he needs to stay and not chase after Interesting Things that pass by.
Fred did have a run-in with a skunk the other night.
(He wasn’t “working” at the time.)
Fred chased a skunk out of my backyard.
The skunk tried to spray Fred.
Fred somehow managed to escape un-sprayed.
My entire backyard, however, smelled terrible.
Fred thought the entire encounter was very exciting and fun.
I didn’t agree with Fred.
In fact, I told Fred he couldn’t go back outside to play with the skunk.
There is never a dull moment with Fred in my life.
