Bear did just fine today. His obedience is coming along. He still toils with self restraint but is getting better. We haven't started torturing him by tossing toys around yet but he was able to hold a Down/Stay in the living room today with the other dogs going about their business and my husband and me coming and going. That was hard for him but he did a good job.
He got his first bike ride today and he enjoyed it very much after the initial the-bike-will-hit-you-so-respect-the-tires stage. Bear also noticed the Donkey for the first time and was so put off by him that we had to stop, stare, and bark for a moment.
Ace and Bear have been rearranging the furniture tumbling around the house. They sound like they are killing each other but have a great time and calm down easily when they get too rowdy.
Tomorrow will be a bit boring for him as a large chunk of my day is taken up by in town appointments. I will make it up to him with some extra house time in the evening and maybe Claven, my husband, can take him on a slightly longer run.
