Baby Jango!!!
Took the puppy to Daycare today to see how he'd do, seeing as he had a bit of a freak out a couple of days ago, when he met Jorge's two female AmStaffs (and Jorge's dogs are pretty calm and well trained). He went straight on his back, paws flailing, screaming at the top of his lungs, and then somehow managed to get himself stuck in a corner, and then he got a bit snappy and defensive when the girls tries to check him out. After giving him his space, it took about an hour before he was comfortable enough around Charm and Mary for him to come out of his corner.

Seems he's fine with other dogs once he realizes that no one's hurting him, but his overly fearful reaction confirms what I was worried about - being taken away from his litter at only 6 weeks old, he missed out on a critical socialization period with his litter mates. Thankfully, he did very well in daycare, during the hour I popped by to visit on my day off. Instead of screaming his head off this time, he was nervous for about five minutes, growled at the dogs that got right up in his face, but didn't lash out. In no time though, Bella the Beagle took a liking to him, and he was running around and playing like a puppy should. He was even curious enough to check out the much bigger dogs, like Bentley the Great Dane/Greyhound mix, Argos the Rhodesian Ridgeback, and Rogue the Rottweiler.

I'm going to bring him into work with me every day that I can now, as long as he's still small enough to fit in his carrier, to be taken on Skytrain with me.

Here's a video of Jango playing with Drazz. :3

Like most puppies, he's really cute. :3

I hope spending time at the Daycare helps sort out whatever socialization issues he's got before he gets too big.

Ya know, you Vancouver dog owners really need to get together and start a petition to get pets of ALL sizes onto the public transit system there. I mean, jesus... Calgary and Toronto allow it. Why not a city that claims it's so uber dog-friendly? It's not fair that people without cars, who have big dogs can't get on the trolly-bus or skytrain if they need to get somewhere with their pet....it's not like the buses aren't big enough! They're wider than the ones the TTC use for crying out loud! Augh... if only they weren't assholes about that, then Vancouver would be perfect...

holy crap, he's cute!

Your living room looks amazing by the way, it really looks like you guys REALLY cleaned up in there. I can't wait to see it in person when I'm up that weekend for our birthdays, I'm so excited to see you and Tor and everyone again.
