We hit another milestone in growing up today... Ducky's ex-pen got put away. <sniff> Feels like no more puppy, though I know that in spite of his long coat, he IS still a puppy in many ways! How far we have come!!!

Now, you MIGHT think that "perfectly well behaved" means not potting inappropriately, but that really hasn't been the problem... Jumping up on my desk and destroying with things has been the bigger problem in the past! LOL! Fortunately, he seems to have outgrown THAT delightful habit!

My office does have a gate, and he is being gated in here with Panda when we are out of the house, but we have been doing that for a couple of weeks now with the pen open, and he has been perfectly well behaved, so it was time for the pen to go!

Ducky behaving imperfectly?!? I can’t believe such terrible accusations! I’m sure some OTHER puppy snuck in and shredded all that wonderful paper 😂

I am flipping this back into the “Raising Ducky” thread, because it is very much a part of raising my baby show dog. As much a thrill as or wins last week were, (when I had mpno one there to video us) this week, at much bigger shows, with video of his two days of competition so far has been very instructive For me. He is definitely learning the ropes of the “Special” ring, and becoming much stronger and more confident. These are all grabs from video, so please forgive the poor quality of the photos!

Here he was on Thursday. Certainly not “bad”, but just sort of trotting along at my side. This was plenty to get him the points he needed for his championship… NOT enough for a special. You can also tell from the length of my stride, I am not walking particularly fast.

This was today in comparison. A VERY different picture! THIS is a more exciting dog! He was NOT rushing, and was still on a loose lead. He was not pulling on the lead at all. But I had to take LONG strides and walk FAST to keep up with him. He was really showing the “reach and drive” you want to see in our breed.

And here are just a couple of cute ones of him while we were waiting in line… because he IS so cute!!! I am learning every time we step into the special ring too. I watch carefully, and learn from the other competitors. Sometimes just by watching, but I am lucky that at least in this area, the other owner handlers are very willing to share their knowledge with a newcomer. Every single special in the ring this weekend is being handled by an owner handler!

They could have nicer looking grass for little Ducky. How could his little feet stay so clean?
I love how he looks at you. He looks so happy.
LOL! We have had a terrible drought here this summer! The grass is bad everywhere! and yes, we love working with each other! 💕
