Early puppyhood enrichment

Cory's babies are thriving and doing well. I visited them when they were one week old; fat, happy and nursing well, but eyes and ears still not open. However, that didn't stop us from giving them their first agility lesson!

Above is the little girl; she is so fat I was afraid her head would get stuck in the tire.

In the tunnel is the little boy. At 7 days old, already he is the mouthy one who complains loudly about everything and barks and cries in his bed. Sometimes you just can't fight genetics....!

Here's the boy again on the A-frame. In case you haven't caught on yet, this isn't REALLY an agility lesson, just a cute photo op! Though it's never too early to get them used to lots of new sensations! And of course, we expect them to be VERY advanced ;-).

Boy on the left, girl on the right. Boy was born first, but girl has been a bit bigger and quicker to mature all along.

And as long as we are on the shameless brag wagon, I will just add that on Sunday June 13 Cory finished his CD (AKC Companion Dog) title. He earned all three legs in a row with a 1st, 3rd, and 4th place in classes with some very nice competition. We still have a LOT of work to do to get him working like I think he can, but I didn't want to get in the same position I was in with his father, of racing the clock trying to finish advanced titles on an older dog. Plus, novice is BORING- now we can move on to open and utility and do the fun stuff!
