I’m trying to get back to real life.
I spent almost all of yesterday doing errands.
(I even went to the dentist – I have very CLEAN teeth!)
My “to do” list is miles long since I’ve been out of commission a big chunk of the last couple months.
I’m so eager to get back to shooting, but I know I have to give myself a little more time.
Eventually, I’m sure, I’ll get there.
In the afternoon, I came home to this:
iPhone Photo: Fred The Newf, 18 months, with best friend Frank The Newf, 13 weeks
Fred and Frank have a strong bond already.
They’re VERY different dogs, however.
Fred is VERY LARGE for a Newfie!
Fred is a true gentle giant.
Fred’s well trained, and calm … most of the time.
Frank is The Instigator of Trouble.
He’s a hyper, rambunctious, mischievous, BUT ALSO VERY CLEVER puppy.
He’s VERY SMALL for a Newfie his age –
And, there’s a strong likelihood he’ll be a small Newfie even as an adult.
He likes to lay down on top of Fred.
In time, Frank will (hopefully) be well trained … and calm down a little.
But, right now?
I’m pretty sure my house would qualify as a zoo.
Frank has learned to “sit” for treats and to be fed.
He’s making good progress on house training, but I was informed he had a couple accidents yesterday while I was gone.
Now that I’m beginning to feel more human, I’ll be working to expand Frank’s training.
He has a lot to learn, and I’m not sure how training will go.
Clearly, Frank’s very smart – I know he has the POTENTIAL to learn.
But, he’s also crazy-wild and inclined to be a mischief maker.
Training Frank will be an interesting journey.
(Keep your fingers crossed!)
