The time with Pyra is coming to a close as I will drive her back to her breeder on Friday. I thought this last week would be harder than it has been. For the most part I'm at peace with my decision. Sadness, but no regrets.
Py just turned 18wks.
This past week we mastered a retrieve to hand of many objects, and a solid hold with a variety of objects. Just not combined yet.
Hind leg lifts also going well and I've faded out an obvious target. She still needs something to aim for, but it can be pretty much anything, including just a wall.
She's reminding me a bit of The Schipperke this last week though with her food obsession. Py's been getting more frantic at throwing behaviors at me and wanting to steal glances at her food bowl. I've been needing to remind her a bit of the don't stare at food rule, and the concept of being still.
And then I got a non cell phone camera! Expect *slightly* less blurry pictures than before!
On the trip to return Pyra I have decided to also look at a litter that will be 6wks at that time. In some ways it's too soon, but in many ways it feels best to just jump back into loving another puppy. Fingers are crossed that the girl meant for us is waiting there.
