Posted yesterday about our new family member. Have to admit, now that he's been with us a few days and has started to realize he's not at the shelter, he's relaxing just a little bit. He's such an affectionate little guy. I'm loving it. I have to watch, though - make sure I don't do anything crazy like start spoiling him.
It's in my nature.
Today we were working on his "commands" and I am so impressed. He knows sit, lay down, leave it, come, wait, let's go and as I found out today, shake. We're trying a few things out here and there because we know he was well trained, we just have to unlock his little secrets.
One thing we need, though, is a new name. As my boss so brilliantly pointed out, Joe is awfully close to "no" and well... that just won't work. Doesn't seem all that fair and actually seems fairly confusing.
So we're on a hunt...a hunt for a name that suits our young fella. I sure hope we come up with one soon because otherwise, Joe is just going to stick.
Any ideas? He is at least part Australian Cattle Dog... we have ruled out Matey, Barbie and Outback, though...
