Simon has found one more thing he thinks is awesome -- the slide.
I climbed up the stairs and over the bridge and to the top! Ta da!
And then... I realized holy moly, I can go down FAST! Wheeeee! :D This is fun!
I admit, Simon's just awesome for photography. I'm spoiled. He's so easy to set on anything, he'll try anything, he likes strange places and strange things to climb on. Caleb on the other hand... well, at least he sat still with Simon giving him the hint about nice poses. ;)
I get back from taking photos of Caleb and feel like I've worked out for two hours trying to get him to sit still for half a second. Then again, I always tend to feel that way when he gets distracted. Okay, he's easily distracted. He totally has no attention span and no food motivation, but at least he's always ready to play with other dogs in a friendly way. He's never met a dog he didn't like. A lot of them don't like him, but hey, it's all good! There's more fish in the sea to play with! :D
So our goal is to knuckle down and go to a handling class starting next week. I have my mare in training and need to go over and take a lesson tomorrow, but after that, I am bound and determined to find something to crank his attention around and back onto me or a handler.
I'm guessing it's not going to be as easy as getting Simon to pose. ;) Actually, I think it would be easier to teach Simon how to play a waltz on the piano.
