Found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin. Sorted out a new one and the videos are now back up and running. This gave us the opportunity to laugh at the old boy. After all he was 8 on the 27th December!

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

Ambidogtrous

I thought I’d invented a new word today.

Ambidogtrous.

Sue and I were walking Louis and (secretly) enjoying the fact that a dog walking past a house with a dog in sniffing range always results in the house dog barking. We walked past a house with two dogs watching the world go by and Sue commented that these two were very well behaved for their male biped but naughty with their female biped.

I replied that I thought Louis was equally disposed to Sue or me as far as obedience goes (but he loves Sue more I’m sure) and I said that meant he was ambidogtrous.

Google burst my bubble though – I checked the word out and got just three hits but they reference whether a dog favours its left or right front paw; makes sense to me.

I then took this photo of hound-boy and decided I had another new verb. Paws; not to paw or to pause but a combination of the two.
