Lush Puppy

Today I went up into Massachusetts to see Jill’s Copley compete in a dog show. I remember Copley from teeny puppyhood, but now he’s a grown dog. Afterwards, Jill and I went for a walk with the dogs (Copley had to stay with his handler, alas), and I got to meet Lush, the new puppy.

Like Copley, Lush comes from an impressive show pedigree, and with any luck, she’ll have quite a future in that venue. She’s certainly gorgeous in puppyhood (though what Golden puppy isn’t?).

She’s also one of the best conditioned puppies I’ve ever met. She kept up with us pretty impressively for such a small thing.

And, last but not least, Lush is already well advanced in her training, due in no small part to Jill’s skill. Watching a pup so small sprint back to a handler with such exuberance, in expectation of the affection more than the cookie, well it’s a lovely sight to see.
