Push and Zoo
~Senior Zula Blue and young Pushkin
It is hard to believe that we are halfway through the month of July already. Push and Zoo are both doing well. Zoo has gotten a bit more gray on her chin and nose, but is still going strong. She started to develop “selective hearing” when it came to the recall. I decided to use an E collar to try and correct the situation. The collar that I used had sound, vibration and shock modes. I choose not to use the latter. It took Miss Zoo about three days to have an amazing change in her hearing. She particularly did not like the vibration mode. Her recall is great now! She is such a sweet little Weim.
Pushkin continues with the nose work class. At the last class he identified correctly 9 out of 10 times. He has grown into a beautiful dog. He still has the wonderful waves in his coat along his back and hind end. He also has feathers on his back legs. I am guessing that he has the long hair genetic marker from one of his predecessors. Although we have done a lot of socialization work, he still is aloof with strangers.
We have been doing a lot of tree and rhododendron trimming and you can see by the attached pictures that Push has been “helping” me.
Both Push and Zoo are wonderful companions.
I know we (Cliff and I) are not alone in saying how happy we are to hear the news about your two–Zoo and Push (as you call them). Thank you for always thinking of us. Have a lovely summer! All too soon, we will be looking toward fall–and winter follows. (OMG)
