We have a few on our own, just not trapped yet! I think we will leave the tree kitties to the toys! What I don't want is Yogi deciding to catch him one that is ALIVE and bringing it through the doggie doors inside.

We are progressing with training. He's such an eager learner. This afternoon I was able to step back five steps, hold it for a few seconds, then come back to him and release him from his sit. Yay! That is a lot of progress since Thursday. We also practiced leave it- it works beautifully with a treat, but ahem... he didn't leave my shoe alone, nor did he drop it...he did trade for it though! We also tried a down stay and the first time he wasn't interested in staying. The second time I stepped back and then back up to release him in a rocking motion and it worked! I'm hoping he will master this as well soon. This is something his trainer hasn't taught us yet. He's a good leash walker!

oh, I don't think so- he's still very mouthy!! I don't think he would pass the tests if he bit one of the testers!

He is cute...which makes him easier to forgive and hard to be upset with....goldens know how to shoot you those eyes that make them impossible to get upset with....he shows one of those glances and he could probably get away with a few bitey's.....LOL

The boys played with Toby's beloved tree kitty sent to him by his Aunt Cathy Jo after his cataract surgery. It's survived with one repair to a foot on the squirrel. As you can see, Toby's teeth are coming in and he used them to go after poor Toby's ears and head!









We just flushed out Yogi's ear due to a yeast infection so these photos show a wet ear! He was a wiggler today!

Love all the pictures and the play by play of Yogi's training. I hope both his ear and Toby's jaw/face problem continue to improve and the news you receive about the tick panel puts your mind at ease.

Yogi is getting so big. Looks like Toby puts up with being a chew toy.
