Dreary and overcast day... bleah. So I've posted a photo that I took on a sunny day, to make me feel better. Doesn't Lomax appear to be looking back at whatever it is that's left its looming shadow? "Can I eat it before it eats me?"
I realized this evening that I haven't updated you with regard to Lomax's turn-in date, when he'll go to live at the school for formal training (we call it "IFT"). He's nineteen months old now, so he's theoretically of age and due to go in during the May turn-in, but he's been given a reprieve -- hooray! I get to keep my boy another three months or so. The next turn-in is in late July.
His brother Liam isn't going in May, either, which I'm guessing means the entire "L" litter is going in July. There must be too many dogs this time around, and I know the school is looking to hire another person in the training department. It's apparently a very busy time.
That's excellent news as far as I'm concerned! It gives me more time to work with Lomax on his distracted ways; it gives him more time to mature. It also gives us more time to cuddle. Three months seems like a long time now, but I know it will pass in a flash. I'm sure gonna miss this silly little dog.
