Duck In Norfolk with Abe
We are making a good adjustment…
Duck has been adjusting well. Everyone who works in my apt building say he has the best personality of all the dogs that live here. He is very mellow when he meets new people, and pretty good when it comes to meeting other dogs — but sometimes that gets him a little hyper.
I have a dog park on the water about a mile away and he didn’t hesitate to take a swim, that’s not something that he liked doing before. I got him playing fetch a little bit too, just down the hallway of my building, but again not something he ever really showed interest in at all before.
He really doesn’t like being in the crate during the day, so I’ve started just letting him roam in the apartment. Other than making a pile of my stuff on his bed, he seems to do fine with that.
What did you give him for treats? I’ve tired giving him rawhide bones and he eats them too fast and throws them up. But I’ll like to leave him with something to work on while he is home alone…
I’m going to be at sea for the month of April, but I have several people who want to watch Duck, so I think things will be fine.
Breeder’s Note: You might remember the blog that featured Duck and Abe not so long ago-–Click here to read that blog.
First, we don’t recommend anyone use rawhide bones, or chews. Bits can break off, and once ingested a number of things could go badly. The bits could embed in the lining of the intestine, and cause inflammation. Pieces could cause an intestinal blockage–this can be life-threatening. We know some folks do use them, but we do not have peace about them. Secondly, we hate to see you must deploy again. As we mentioned, it will be so important to prepare Duck for your departure. He needs a second home; someone who understands his needs. Keeping Duck and you both safe during this time of departure will be important. Nonetheless, we are happy that you are back together, and that Duck is doing so well. Thank you for taking time to get these wonderful photos for us to share. Everyone loves Duck. For those that don’t know, Storm and Dusty are Duck’s parent. Here are some recent photos of them below–these were taken by Larry Cleveland (Portland Wildlife Photographer).
