Some highlights from the week:
The Husband and Rip had week 2 of puppy class. I asked if Rip was the star (this IS what I expect, after all). Apparently that's not the case. I'm blaming it on the handler.
I continue to work with Rip on obedience and foundations for agility. We also started on the beginnings of clicker training this week (click = treat). He continues to be a clever little dog.
Unfortunately, Rip's ears have flopped again. Sigh. They had ~10 days of upright loveliness, then, suddenly, we're back to horizontal ears. Today I resigned myself to another round of taping, and put the ears back in tape. I'm using duct tape on each ear - reinforced with breathe-right strips. No crown at the moment.
Here's what happens when a puppy has 2 walks, some training, a soccer game, and frapping time in one day.
He just couldn't go any further...
