This one is Eclipse trotting alongside my bike. I need to get in better shape before I'll be able to make him run with the bike but he is doing very well! He even gets really excited when he sees me get the bike out and will even tolerate me putting his gentle leader on and hold still for it! (Which is huge for the dog that used to run from his head collar!)
Then we tried putting toys away. We obviously need to work on this a lot better and I need to be more consistent in the command I use (he knows "get it" but I want to phase out "get it" and "put it away" to just "pick up" but I need to get the behaviour much much more solid before I do that) and I need to look at the environment a lot more closely in regards to what I want him to do to set him up for better success. This is why I love videos, I can see the stupid mistakes I'm making that are hindering his progress!
This next one is where you see how bad my consistency really is (I'm ashamed!) and I start to get a tad frustrated with him which I didn't Feel but you can hear in my voice.
He truly is a complete goofball and it's very evident that the typical mental retardation that results from malnourishment in utero doesn't affect my boy at all, although the other possible results could play into what makes Eclipse my little Roo *wink*. Below are just some cute random photos of the kiddos, enjoy!
