I finally took decent pictures of LT. She hardly stops moving! We are have a great time getting to know each other.
She is19.8 pounds today and almost 11 weeks old. She eats a combination of kibble and raw. Usually it’s venison mid-day. The last couple days she has been eating duck for lunch.
Her right ear still flops over a bit, while her left ear stays up more or less. Brown/red is creeping into her face. These pictures are a couple days old and don’t really show what her ears are doing now.
My wife is complaining that she only listens to me. Jane says that she acts better when I’m around. LT does so many obedience commands – it’s hard to believe how quickly she picks things up. She kennels, walks on a leash, sits, waits for the release command for her food, plays fetch. House breaking would be better if I could learn her queues – I would say every accident has been my fault for not paying close enough attention. When we get outside she takes care of business very promptly and waits for the reward.
When we are outside she uses her nose a lot. I don’t know how to train her to track, but I’d like to. I’m researching trainers now – it’s as much work as finding a breeder. We did have one private lesson and that put me on track. But, I don’t think that trainer is the one for LT and I.
She isn’t intimidated by anything. Waves breaking at the beach, gun shots at the range, a zillion children dressed in costumes! She goes with me most everywhere, except my main job. At our gun shop she lays on the floor waiting for customers to come in and pet her, she acts like this has been going on for years.
