Recovery

Dogs are obviously much more robust than people. Pip has been a lot perkier today than yesterday afternoon, despite the three incisions on his body. He even managed to run around chasing a ball and was able to focus well enough (aided by a bit of ham) to learn a new command. “Off.” Which means – “let go of whatever it is that you’ve got in your mouth so that I can take it off you, and I will reward you with ham.” He thought that was such a good trade that he found other toys and waited for me to take them off him and give him treats.

I’m not sure who’s getting trained here, me or him.

    He is a clever boy. I’m not sure that I’m smart enough to keep up!
