January 12 is Hershey Day
I am posting this late January 11th because I will be really busy tomorrow. January 12th is our Hershey's 1st birthday. It has been a great year having both our Havs and watching them grow into really good buddies. Going through the puppy stage was exhausting, but of course you all know that. He was actually a really good little puppy and took to crate training and housebreaking quickly. He had some rude tendencies toward Ollie when it came to sharing and Ollie being so laid back didn't help, he just let him steal anything he had. We are actually still working on it although it is much better and Ollie doesn't give him the puppy pass anymore. He loves people and loved other dogs until we got him back from the vets after his neuter. He was showing some aggression toward large dogs after that something he never did before. We have been working on that and he is much better. He is a quick learner and is very treat motivated so fun to train. He is very comical and has quite a personality which showed up almost immediately. He is a talker and greets his dad every night with a toy in his mouth and a low groan sound that sounds a bit like Tim The Tool Man Taylor. One of the things he gets to do on his birthday is begin agility. I think he is quite athletic and once he gets used to the equipment will be quite good at it, but we will have to wait and see. I have attached a few pics to let you see how he has grown this year. Top left he is days old, top right 8 weeks, middle left 3 months, middle right 9 months and bottom pic is him now. He has really held his colour well it is more mahogany now, but still quite dark.
