I just read Bagheera's story and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing your adventure and all your great photos. Hard to believe how fast a puppy grows up.

Your weekly Bagheera update, 21 weeks old today version.


Got his last shot for a while. He's now fully vaccinated.

The past two days were difficult. He simply adores the snow, and this weekend he decided I wasn't letting him outside long enough. And he refused to come in. Again, we have no fence, so this is a problem. I was able, by voice, to get him inside, but there were quite a few instances where I was worried he might simply decide to high tail it out of there. Then last night, the last time I trusted him on his own, he walked across the street. No traffic, but like two minutes after I got him back inside, the snowplow came by. So for now, he'll be tied when out in back, or leashed when I go out front with him. He doesn't like being tied out at all and has thus far refused to go potty that way, unless he absolutely has to. I feel saddened because up until this point he's been very obedient, for a 5 month old (this coming Sunday) puppy. I know I can't expect him to be perfect but I hate taking away his privileges. But we must focus on safety.

An example of serendipity or eerie intelligence. I had set my gloves to dry on a floor vent in the bathroom. A while later I went back to check on them, Bagheera following me, and noticed one of the gloves was missing. On a lark I pointed to the remaining glove and said to Bagheera, "Go fetch my other glove." and lo and behold, he trotted out and came back, with the glove. I think that was pretty neat!

This weekend's snowstorm interrupted a plan to take him swimming, so hope we can try again next weekend, weather permitting.

I'm amazed at how well he does with other dogs. He holds his own when they display aggression, and can join in even the fastest games of chase. He got bowled over by an overly-aggressive yellow Lab yesterday, bounced up, and growled a warning that the other dog understood. No biting, just a "Hey, I have teeth and I will use them if you hurt me." kinda playful warning. That was it.

Here he is at the dog park with an adorable Golden named Banjo. Snow was coming down hard!

Bagheera turned 5 months old yesterday. We celebrated by staying indoors and NOT going to the dog park in -15F weather. Instead we did our Christmas pictures. These pics show some of that hilarity.

It was far easier to get a photo of the puppy alone, wearing his "My 1st Christmas" hat.

Wonderful photos of Bagheera and the kids, looks like they had a lot of fun with it!
Love the Santa hat on Bagheera!
