Justin is a Big man with a Big heart who took a Big 12 hour one way trip from Lake Havasu, AZ to get his Rancho Santiago family - companion pup for his 4 year old daughter and himself. Good guy who is great fun to visit.
Update; all the way home, no puking, three bathroom breaks requested, no accidents in the truck, very little whining, mostly slept.....however, he is not stoked on the kennel crate yet :)
It will just take him a few days to learn that is his house and his private personal home.... Dr. Jim
8 week old pup update.
"CHAMPION FAMILY DOG"
Update for 8 weeks....
Clearly he hates his kennel. He whined for a night and a half and after that only when he needs to relieve himself. Other than that he clearly enters as if it's his own. He likes a nice little hard boiled egg or cheese treat. And little bits of meat are ambrosia.
He is mouthy. A lot so. He's stubborn, even annoyingly so, which is a family trait. Good pup though and loved by all he has seen. He has already been to the lake to swim. While a little young, something tells me he had ancestors that survived such early adventures. He is incredibly playful, already understands the fundamentals of fetch, but max of about 12 feet. He has hunted and eaten three crickets and a bumble bee. He also likes to eat scorpion weed....I cannot say his persistence on this delicacy is something I am fond of. He loves pig ears and has a stuffed frog that if it had bones would rattle like a baby shaker....he grabs hold of that thing and choke holds and slams it with ferocity.
Yes, Sir that pup is from generations of serious hunting Catahoulas! Dr. Jim
