Week 4 Training

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Today was week 4 training. Luce does really well walking at variable speeds, abrupt stopping, right, left, and about turns. Highly distracting environments are still a challenge but we still have many weeks to go. Here he is with Stacey doing a sit stay as Stacey walks away (launching with her right foot of course):

Then she waits at the end of the leash for a while:

Then Luce recalls perfectly.

Lui e un cane bene, si?

Weigh in Day

Saturday, October 14th, 2017

Well, today was time to do a little weight in at the vet to see just how big, Big Lu is getting. He weighed in at 83.5lbs. Here he is back home cooling off on the stone tile floor:

A little later in in the day, he was happy to stand vigil at the front door while Stacey watered the front yard, so while we may call him “Lazy Lu” sometimes, he knows when to hold em’, when to fold em’, when to walk away, and when to wait by the front door for him mommy to come back inside.

Luce was taking a nap just outside my office on the tile. This view from my chair is what prompted me to take the picture as it had a “crime scene” look about it.

Then, I proceeded to investigate further. As you can see, he is actually laying on his side but maybe wanted to get some fresh air on his belly, Idunno?

Luce Hangin’ Under the Desk

Most of the time I work from my home office and Luce likes to sneak in under the desk and lay in front of my feet. Now that he is getting big, he can’t get by un-noticed. I backed up to take this picture which caused him to pop his head up looking like “What up dude, I was taking a nap?”.
