Bear only lets me play for short times before he calls me in now that he is the boss (he thinks). I am told to step it up to keep up with him. What a pup! He weight was 39.2lbs few days ago at the vets - increasing the food again! Never seen anything like it ....everyone asks me about Bear.
We've had a couple firsts at our house. A week ago Saturday Kaline
lifted his leg for the first time. We were very proud! On a less good note, he
took off on his very first field trip this past weekend. Everybody was out for
a walk... just like every other day.... only this time Kaline took off after
some deer. Bad dog. Craig got everybody else in the pen -- and started out in
the direction Kaline had gone.... within minutes Kaline came running back for
all he was worth. He ran right passed Craig -- and all the way up to the house.
I think if he could have turned the door knob he would have been in the
kitchen. I don't know what happened on that first experience -- but I think it
was bad.... which is good. Perhaps a deer stopped and turned to look at him...
because as we know, Kaline tries to sound tough -- but he really isn't.... or it
could be that all of a sudden he turned around and realized he was all by
himself. At any rate, he has not made any attempt to leave the comfort of the
pack on walks since then -- so we think that is a very good thing.
