Meet Duster

Here's our new pup: Duster (Tanbark's Leave 'Em in the Dust). He came home last week and is settling in nicely. He's going to be my new agility partner, and I can't wait to start training!

He may look cute, but he's like a whirling dervish on steroids! Our cat finds him anything but cute: he insists on treating her like a toy, but she doesn't perceive herself as a toy. She's been patient so far and we've been teaching him to leave her alone. Hopefully he calms down a bit before her patience runs out.

For such an active and curious pup, he settles nicely in my office during working hours, and has also been calm in the evenings if he gets enough exercise during the day. There's a lot of freezing rain today, however, so no walk or outdoor playtime. We'll see how things go down this evening ...!

Thank you. It was taken as Ruby completed the last obstacle to win her division of the national steeplechase (speedstakes) championship in New Brunswick in 2014, six months before her death.

I miss her every single day.

Thank you! Yes, he's exactly what I hoped for. Bold, food-driven and wants to please his human. I'm thrilled with him. He won't be an easy teenager, but he'll be a fun companion and working partner.

I initially thought I wanted another female, but after talking to the breeder of my last dog, and to a couple of other friends who know me well, I came around to the idea of a male instead. Their advice has proved to be spot on: it has, I think, been easier to "move on" with a boy dog instead of another girl. Fewer points of comparison, fewer unrealistic expectations, more room to develop another outstanding bond without feeling guilty for replacing my "best girl".

Our poodle is not a happy camper right now, but I'm confident he'll come around. He loves other dogs generally, and will learn to enjoy having another canine companion once he's got over the fact of no longer being an "only dog"!
