Chewie is doing well. He is back to where he was a few years ago when he was first trained. I discovered the secret to speeding him up and making him less prone to fits of the sullens. You have to make a fool of yourself. You have to use that special voice that is reserved for baby bunnies and things that make you go "squee!" Basically, you have to keep him upbeat and goofy. I am certain this need will go away as the obedience becomes a way of life for him. He has gotten so accustomed to being the little prince of his palace that whenever he has to work he acts like, well, a spoiled little prince. But if you keep him laughing with you he has fun and soon he will be looking more forward to his lessons.
I will miss these guys. They have been tons of fun and full of some healthy frustration. I am glad I will get to continue working with them and watch Rocky grow up some more.
