Another boring week, and that's a good thing.
I had a lot of time with Hachi outdoors. I am struck, again and again, at how hard he tries when I ask him to "come" or any other cue. Because he tries so hard, he can look very serious.
He can also look zany!
In terms of his interactions with R, he didn't have any closeup ones inside the house this week. He did go for off-leash runs with R and the Runner every morning, and they got along well outdoors. I keep reminding myself that slow and steady is what might eventually win in terms of Hachi's attitude toward R. So, we do our behavior modification exercises with Hachi and R every day, and I try not to ponder whether I have a clue about what the future holds.
Life is full of twists and turns. I don't know when it will happen but I predict that I will temporarily be forced to post less frequently in the near future. Please bear with me when that happens. Also, please forgive me for having trouble visiting all of the blogs that I want to visit. Life isn't easy right now.
