Puppy common sense

Afternoon, Don

Spud continues to grow, somedays physically, somedays mentally, and of course he misses some days!

Early on Saturday morning, we were doing a 1 hour hike at Crescent beach, near Petit Riviere.  Suddenly, I noticed 2 otters leaving the ocean and heading for a rocky breakwater.  Before I could get Spud on leash, he noticed the animals and ran to check things out.  When Mrs. Otter and Jr Otter got to the breakwater, they turned to face the Lab.  I suggested to Spud that he come to me ( rather than visit the vet) and Spud did come to me without any drama.  Pretty sensible decision on his part.

Moments like that are rewarding.
