- Great picture, Jeff. Glad to see you are back.
So what are the various hats Sir Link is wearing these days?
Sniff, sniff - he looks all grown up, too
he is indeed all grown up. 54 pounds and 2.5 y.o.
He's doing a lot of pulling these days, whether it's me in skates or carts. Which is awesome. He's also helping me with client dogs, which is perfect because his personality is very intense and assertive and confident and often cocky so he allows me to see a dog's true colors. That said, he also spends a lot of time in public with me doing absolutely nothing, watching the world move around him, quietly and passively and unengaged. ..which was a TON of work on both our parts to accomplish.
So basically, he's being quite versatile in his engagement to me and our life, which is awesome because that means I can take him anywhere and have control over his energy and his level of interaction. What I expect from him, training wise, is nearly polar opposite of his default personality, so working on versatility was a huge bonding experience for us both and a great accomplishment that we can now both benefit from.
He's much more of a trained dog these days than just a Husky, that's for sure. But he's learned the benefit of that versatility, so it's really nice.
And now.....he's a chess knight, as well, haha

- I believe Link is filling the role of the knight. Hence, one king.
Jeeze, I played tournament chess while in school and service. I know where he was setting, can't I even have a little fun???
I have to admit that it did throw me for a second with the pawn setting off-side the rook ....
