When they’re hanging out with me the pups and adults enjoy the freedoms of the yard and exploring it.
I’ve been watching the pups with great curiosity lately. Until now Prim has been the ruler of the Trio’s roost, keeping her two brothers in line with a mere look and fiercely chastising the boys if they crossed her line. But lately BlackJack is trying some moves.
The other day he sat on the outside of an open door of a dog run while Tanner anxiously paced back and forth on the inside, barking, wanting to come out but not being able to because BlackJack was impeding him. BlackJack was calm and cool as a cucumber while he kept his brother imprisoned.
It used to be that Prim could tell the boys to give up any toy or chew they has that she wanted. BlackJack has called quits on that, now he lays calmly with a chew and gives a very intent look that sends the other pups away.
Our routine will be interrupted for a few days next week with the onset of sheep camp. Something we are looking forward to but the pups won’t know what came over the place. With all the strangeness that will come next week, their world will definitely be rocked.
