Canyon has now been with us for almost 3 months and he has come such a long way. He now comes when called and he recognizes the difference between his name and the others. He is still not eating as much as I’d like, but he’s maintaining his weight at 67lbs. It is amazing to see what a difference a month has made. Once his recall is perfect, we’ll begin focusing on his heeling and stays. I am taking my time with him because I want him to know everything well before moving onto something different.
On another note, Cessna has spring fever. I find each spring she goes through a period of ignoring commands and letting her nose get her into trouble. I am thinking that she needs to work more, but it’s hard when Huib works and we live away from town. I think I’ll just need to start doing a little obedience training each day to get her back into shape.
This past week a friend of mine adopted a 1 year old great Dane lab cross from the Guelph Humane Society. I am really excited for her, she has wanted a pet dog for a while and has taken her time in finding the right one. His original name was Tank, but her and her fiance have decided to name him Kyo which means “big” in Japanese. She picked Kyo up on Thursday and had her guide dog meet him outside their home. Kyo needs a lot of work on obedience and relaxing, but I am confident that he has found his forever home. I will post updates and pictures of Kyo as I get them.
Condo update….SOLD!!! We will be going to Waterloo from the 28th until the 1st of April to deal with everything. We are quite excited because now we can stop living in a deficit each month and pay off some debt. We are going to view a house in town on Monday afternoon. We are not sure we want to buy our current home and are looking at other options now that our condo is SOLD!!!
