|I was holding Max myself so I was too close|
to get many pictures of him.
|He always gets a lot of looks at adoption events.|
Max was hoping for and expecting a hike when I put him into the van this morning so he was disappointed but he did fairly well. He's gorgeous, but he doesn't work the crowd the way some dogs do. He's just not a touchy feely kind of shepherd. I held him myself but put him back in the van after a couple hours because he had had enough.
Daisy was wonderful. She's really beginning to blossom. Being outside put her more at ease, I think; she had more room and didn't feel trapped. She let everyone touch her and she gave several people kisses. She also approached people on her own. She barked at one very large man, who was afraid of her, and I think the feeling was mutual. She's coming along and I'm more encouraged each time she's out.
|Daisy is less shy each time I take her out.|
I'm going to take Daisy to an obedience class starting on Tuesday, mostly for the socialization aspect of it. The folks who handled her today were impressed with her "sit", "down", and her ability to catch treats in the air. The dog knows more than she lets on.
Felix had a great time although he didn't have a clue about what was going on. There were people and dogs, and that's all it takes for him to have a good time. He barfed on the ride up there, but that's my fault for breaking my rule about not feeding dogs the morning of adoption events.
|She offers her paw when she sits for a treat.|
|She looks like a kangaroo here, but|
she's in the process of catching a treat
tossed to her from about 6' away.
|Daisy downs as readily as she sits.|
|He even found an appropriate|
spot to poop and pee.
|Felix enjoyed the attention.|
