Well, it's been six weeks since Gunny was whelped and things have gone swimmingly.
This is him doing the "cute" routine.
"the cute pest"
My behavior as a faux sibling has worked and Mom has done her part to properly clue Gunny
in about behavior with other dogs. A week ago, I started the "puppy shuffle" walk with him
and he understands where not to be. Yesterday, Gunny and I started "The Walk" which is a ritual
all my pups follow. The Square Pond training area is a perfect place to allow a young pup to
explore, learn and become more aware of what he is all about. There is a large corn field
surrounding it with many erosion strips plus a football field size area of mowed grass to the east. 8)

He got his feet wet yesterday, and at the end of today Taffey came out and went for a
swim. Gunny followed suit and was swimming for a short time. After he came out of the
water, he got another session of "The Lesson" from Taffey. It was interesting to watch.
He'd like to be a pest, but she is patiently putting him in his place. Here is a page showing
