Darby, Six Months at Christmas

"I'm so happy, I think I'll explode!"

My baby’s six months old today! He’s spending the night terrorizing my nieces but they love every minute of it. We’re going to a Christmas party at work tomorrow. He also now has more toys than your average five year old.

I still can’t believe how smart he is, he’s been picking up tricks faster that any dog I’ve ever had. In one of the pictures I was trying to get him to beg, but I couldn’t get him to do it exactly when I took the shot. I’ve heard that it can take months to teach a dog that, he’s got it but just needs to work on the balance. This week’s trick was learning how to crawl on command and he’s nailed that one too.

He’s still a little leery on meeting new people but if I tell them to let Darby come to them first he’s great and will lick their hand. I brought him into a local pet store chain, Daves’s Soda & Pet Food City, (mainly for socialization) and we met a woman who actually knew what a kooikerhondje is. She said she’s always wanted to meet one, and yes, now she wants to get one!

I hope you all enjoy your holidays, we’ll be enjoying ours!

Thanks again for such a wonderful puppy.
