Ajax went from a hesitant swimmer, to an enthusiastic one, to an absolute water addict. A couple of our favorite walks circle lakes, and he’ll now break from the trail at every glint of water for the opportunity to splash in at new places.
His obedience is coming along well too, as he demonstrates with a “stay” in this picture so I can back up and snap a few headshots with the telephoto. He’s a heavy-lidded guy in all lighting, but he puts on an adorable squint when he has to look into the sun.
I appreciate both boys for their own natures. Comet’s more laid-back, fun-loving joie de vivre is infectious, and Jax’s developing intensity is impressive and enviable.
