Puppy steps! Henry will now do a sit from the down position! You have no idea how amazing that is. He will also shake hands...well, um...he paws at the hand holding the treat. He is even getting better about being at heel! Will he pass the companion test....well, nope, but he has earned the following:
Mix three small jars of baby food (chicken or beef flavor), 9 tbsp powdered milk, 6 tbsp ground flax seed, and 8 tbsp wheatgerm. Roll into walnut-sized balls and bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10 to 13 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until the bottoms look a little brown. Refrigerate to store.
Remember that these cookies, while healthy, do contribute extra calories. So just one or two a day is enough for your "good boy!"
And on the fluffy head front, I've trimmed the little guy's hair again. He is back to punk rocker. His uncles made him feel insecure with the rubber band topnotch.
It is terrible how self conscious our families can make us. Please, don't worry. Henry is strong. He can take it. He trimmed to show those big beautiful eyes - it was not the peer pressure.
