    I'm almost more impressed now - Kiran only weighs 40lbs! LOL. OTOH, he probably couldn't wrap his mouth around the big can, so small mercies?

    Re: New kid on the block - Kiran's thread

    Trial this weekend added a couple of titles to my signature.

    He also got a lot of compliments for how HAPPY he was, crated nicely and quietly, chilled out, and suddenly we have duration heeling. (IDEK, I did zero work). Heck, he posed for pictures with children.

    Also a place to hang out and stare and wag at me.

    Seriously though, his actual agility has improved radically, but I'm also suddenly in possession of a truly incredible dog in general. DOG, not puppy. Wild.

    It really is.

    She got a LOT of very, very, *VERY* nice shots. I can't even come close to posting them all - too many! So I just occasionally fall in love with a single one and post it :P

    He was 4 Qs from his Novice Versatility Award - that's Novice title in the 6 'main' NADAC agility classes.

    ...He's a month away from being 2.

    Also he's freaking gorgeous.

    Re: New kid on the block - Kiran's thread



    Canyx updating about Brae prompted me toward an update, since it's been a bit when I've *SAID* much of anything about Kiran.

    It's funny, but he's the highest drive dog in the house - or that I've owned - but in a lot of ways he's chilled me out. I'm not overly concerned with success in trial situations, or titles or even training. We do all those things - lots and lots - and he does them well. He's tearing through agility titles, is killing it at disc, likes obedience and rally and tricks and lure coursing and going off the dock and - basically everything there is to do, and someday I'll take that invitation and do some IPO, if I ever have time again. He's *two*.

    He's a really, really excellent sports dog. Somehow, though, in being an incredibly good sports dog, he's made me less concerned about sports. I don't NEED to train him all that much or that hard to get there. I don't have environmental challenges or confidence challenges or - anything really. He's been competing 6 months and he stepped into a trial ring without a single hiccough. My biggest issue is that he likes agility less than things that involve retrieving and more toy use and I suspect I'll take care of that just by using toy rewards more often.

    So the end result is... we go hike a lot, and we go to the lake a lot, and we play a lot - and even when we're working on something more seriously, because he is so ... reliable and confident in all the ways, even that's just another game.

    My biggest surprise is how much I love the fact that he thinks the sun rises and sets on me. He will greet people pretty happily - even too exuberantly at times - but there's no duration. He says 'hi' and bounces off and moves on, even if they have food in his face. He is barely even willing to play games he loves (like disc or fetch) with my HUSBAND. My kids could drop dead tomorrow and he wouldn't notice. Me? I'm the center of his universe. I can, and have, shaped new behaviors with nothing but verbal praise.

    And I would have predicted that would make me nuts, but I kind of love it.

    He's loud. He's a little territorial. He'll resource guard ME (and only me) from Thud. He's got Opinions about How Shit Works. Sometimes he's more stubborn than I am and I just kind of eye-roll and let things go, but he never pushes that too far. Otherwise, he's just a solid, good, confident (in himself and in the world and in me) dog. A little of that's rubbed off on me. He makes me want to go places and do things and play in the world.

    He's still around being a Very Good Boy. Just about 6.5 and starting to get a touch frosty. I don't know where time goes, but I don't like it!
