Here's a photo of Cheryl working with Dewey and Jam on food distractions. She and the dogs are on the floor, and between them are a few pieces of kibble. The dogs are in a down-stay, sitting patiently, but Dewey (the puppy) has achieved a transcendent state of patience--he's a natural Zen master when it comes to self control, muscles completely relaxed. Maybe it will rub off on Jam.
And here's a close-up picture of Jam in my office, sitting still (barely) and staring up at a piece of kibble, radiating a sort of charisma that he turns on to get his way--I've never seen anything quite like it. While Dewey is serene, Jam is volatile.
I told Willow she doesn't have to sit for pictures anymore if she doesn't want to. Here she is playing puzzle games with the boys. No contest, she is the best.
