Fiona- 11wks

Fi is a really good girl. To good of a girl for my preference.

My proudest accomplishment is that she is finally bringing objects to me.  She still does a bit of wanting to play keep away but not a ton.  Actually Fi is now bringing me too much stuff!  Stuff such as plastic baggies and shoes.

Forced cuddling at work.

Here's video from last week.  She just turned 12wks on Friday and is 15lbs.

Typical lab. That tail never stops going. Great job getting her into the little box. I'm still trying to get Mango to put all four feet in a box the size of a VW (ha).

Ooooo, new photo on the header. Where do you take the dogs swimming? I go to Bassett Creek just north of 395 near Penn but it will be too low when the rain stops. I've been with a friend to Snail Lake [north of Little Canada]and the south-west side of Long LAke [just north of 694 & 35W].

That is fantastic, the video was so much fun to watch, it is so cool to see little ones that are learning so much!- Kathy with Liz/Breeze/Cricket

The picture was at a friend's cabin. We really don't go to a lake often at all. Vito tends to get really excited at the prospect of water and then if I add the excitement of other people holding chuck its he just explodes. I never really thought of just going to a non dog park lake. I don't live too far from Bassett Creek

Fiona is absolutely lovely and highly motivated I guess. She will definitely become a great service dog. BTW what are the types of treat you offer her?

Thank you Eapen. I mainly train with my their dinner kibble, unless I am somewhere very distracting or I am trying to build value for something the dog is anxious about.

I love the header picture too.

Fiona is so smart and eager! I wish I'd done more with Jackal at that age. :) She's doing so well. I love the spins and jumps. Jackal used to do all four off the ground too, but I stopped doing it as a puppy because he kept falling on the landing and I was afraid he'd hurt himself. Now he rarely gets all four off the ground.

Keep up the great work!
