#RiddickPup Is Forty Weeks Old!
Our nine month old “pickle” is just the sweetest boy! He is the light of my life!
Riddick weighed 29.5kg on the vet’s scale today which is up on last week so he hasn’t finished growing yet! And he still got VERY excited to be there! Silly narna! There was a little Yorkie in the vet’s office and Riddick couldn’t WAIT to say hello!
His “big brother” Volt went back to SA Guide-dogs to complete his training a week ago so, Riddick isn’t getting nearly as much exercise as he was getting, but we’re playing ball lots and going for walks to make up for it!
We are also still working on getting him accustomed to wearing his new Doggles. When he’s chewing on a bone or some such then I put the Doggles on his face fully- over his eyes- but if we’re just playing ball then I put them on top of his head so he can get used to the feeling of having something around his head. When we’re nearly done playing I will put them over his eyes and throw the ball just once because one or two runs down the lawn will have him trying to pull them off his face.
We’re making great progress with them.
