I love getting updates on the puppies. This is an Olivia & Jester pup!
Obi is now 5 months old and doing great. He completed his puppy training, goes to weekly socialization “play dates” and has just started his “Teen manners” classes. He continues to love everyone and everything which is what we wanted. He can Sit, Down, Come, Touch, Leave it, and Drop it. He loves chasing balls but is learning that bringing them back to me allows the game to continue. We are working on “Go to your Matt” and “Stay”. He is still lovely in his crate overnight and many times puts himself to bed. He is already 18 lbs! Bigger than we thought he would be since we thought he would be about 19 lbs fully grown. He may be a “megachon”. People love his friendly demeanor – he has never met anyone he did not like! Even the young man with autism down the street who tends to make sudden loud noises which has caused other dogs to startle and bark at him. Obi loves him (which I encouraged by giving Obi a piece of cheese when we would see him) and they have a good cuddle every time we meet. My neighbours had to euthanize their old dog about 2 weeks after Obi came home and now that Obi walks well on a leash, they will come over and take him for a walk and a cuddle when they need a little “puppy therapy”.
What a blessing he is to his community! He’s a “golden” dog, which is the color of the four females we have that are available and ready to go home any day. What a little trooper Obi is!!
