Some new Jake pics

It's been a while since I posted any pics of young Jake. Don't be fooled by the innocent face - he's been up to all sorts of naughtiness lately. I've stopped using his harness, because he's worked out how to escape from it. I've always fixed it as tight as it can go, without hurting or hampering him, but he's perfected the art of backing out of it and running away at breakneck speed. He also managed to get out of his collar a couple of times, so I changed it for a less flexible one.

Who would believe this innocent little face could front such a devious little mind? He's also taken to laying on dramatic performances, to try to manipulate me into giving him his own way. Alas for Jake, I'm wise to him! Although I find it hard sometimes, not to give in to him, I just keep telling myself it's for his own good, and mine, that I remain pack leader, and he remains a follower. Yes, I watch the Dog Whisperer - how did you guess? I reckon even Cesar Millan would be hard pressed to resist this little fellow's charms.

Here he is with his favourite squeaky toy. Yes, that is mischief you can see glinting in his eyes. His favourite game is to demand I throw the ball for him, but as I go to pick it up, he grabs it, runs off to the kitchen, and hides under the table with it. As soon as I return to the living room, so does he, for a repeat performance, until he finally decides to let me throw it.

I'm currently working on the 'leave it' command with him, and he's getting on well with that. The next bit of his training will involve getting him to drop his ball - it's the only thing he won't leave when told.

Oh well, the kettle's a-whistlin', so I'm off to make coffee. Sorry I've nothing very exciting to report.
