This is Molly. She's 10 weeks old today. The title is wrong because I can't do basic math :/ She's a VERY social dog who loves all people, all dogs, all cats and all bicycle tires. She has not yet run into the thing she is frightened about and trusts her people absolutely. She's very bad and very good and everything in between. Currently she is 100% on a whistle recall, about 85-90% on voice recall, close to 100% on sit, down, stay and stand (and she "holds hands" of course). Her high value treat is hotdogs boiled and sliced or mild soft cheese with a bit of milkbone soft chews inside. She has yet to fully learn about nipping, mouthing, herding people (and cats) and "waiting" - but she has nearly mastered the leashless "come along" and respects the "stay on grass" restriction in her life that keeps her out of the formal gardens on my property and off anything that is paved. We learned tug and chase games today and she's pretty amazed that she can tug something out of my hand and I actually allow it. She is more amazed that I will chase her - two activities that did not end well for her in the past. So she's giving me the "are you trying to trick me" eye a bit as we learn those things and she will NOT growl at me or tug too hard although she had no trouble growling at the family member I employed to help her get started. She's much too young to set to work yet (if she ever does get set to work at all) but she spends a lot of time watching the small herd of goats from a distance and gets very excited when I take her near them, dropping to a crouch and giving them the stare, trying to get closer. The first photo is of her with Karma, the adult Bernese Mountain Dog who is best friend, surrogate mother and partner in crime. They're very good buddies and you can always find them dug into a nice dirt bowl in good shade on hot days. The second is from the day - two weeks ago where she "got" the whole "stay" command business Thanks for letting me rave about my little buddy who is a joy to have - even when she's being a total psycho puppy - which *does* happen.
