Django update.

It’s been ages since we’ve had a chance to update the blog and a mountain of pup images have accumulated over the last month or so, so this update is definitely long overdue.

At the ripe old age of 4 months Django is now very thoroughly integrated into the pack and into our daily routines. Like his parents he’s incredibly affectionate and, if anything, even smarter and quicker to learn than they were. Ringcraft and Obedience training both started a few weeks back and, as with everything else, he’s taken them in his stride. Confident, calm  & ever-curious would probably be his key adjectives right now, as he explores his world and we take him on his little daily adventures in the garden & river and, just occasionally, the beach too:

Django, hunter-of-voles, stalking his prey.

After a few tentative first introductions to water (not helped by him plunging into an icy pool one freezing day at the beach) Django now shares his parents love of water and excitedly heads for (and into) the river on his short morning walks. He also regularly demonstrates his HPR qualities and likes to Hunt, Point & Retrieve whenever the opportunity presents itself:

On point.

...and again - no vole is safe!

At the riverside.

Managing to keep dry-ish at the beach.

A rare trip out into the garden with mum - who's usually too fast for Django's young joints.

Ever attentive!

Retrieving a gull wing at Crow Point.

...and retrieving a stick from the river.

In profile.

Unlike the rest of the UK we've only had a light dusting of snow, but it was still something new for Django to experience.

Django & Mingus absolutely adore one another and when all the fun, games and training are over they often snuggle up together on the sofa.
