Last weekend we went over to our daughter’s flat to see her Entlebucher puppy for the second time. If you missed the first post about this new addition to our family then click the link that follows: ‘A new addition to our family‘.
Bertie – as he will be known – is learning some good habits, but perpetuating and developing bad ones on a daily basis. Currently he is going through the phase of exploring the world via his teeth to assess its bite-ability. This includes anyone’s socks, shoes and trousers especially when they are mobile, as well as every static object that is within range. His teeth are needle sharp – I have the puncture marks to prove it
The good news is that by tomorrow all his inoculations will have provided him with the necessary immunity to Distemper, Parvo virus etc and he will be allowed out in public places to explore green parks etc. My daughter is hoping that the exercise might tire him out a bit and make life in her flat a little easier. Fingers firmly crossed!
Photographing him is a nightmare due to his inability to sit or stand still. Pet photographers must have the patience of a saint. He looks shy and retiring in front of the camera – but don’t be fooled. When in possession of a toy there is a steely determination in his eye. Given the chance he would have loved to test the bite-ability of Nikon equipment. But he was denied the chance!
