We had a very nice Easter weekend.
Even though it was cold and raining most of the time.
We had nice times with family and friends and precious time with just us and our animals.
Cleo and Aaron are best buddies as you already know.
Cleo is still "leading" and teaching, but slowly and surely Aaron starts to grow in personality.
He does what a Shepherd does best - herding.
He herds Cleo, in a very playful way really.
She's still "boss" so to say, calls the shots, but even though Aaron is "smaller" in his mind, he's bigger in size - meaning he decides where Cleo goes and where she doesn't.
Not all the time, but very often...
A very funny thing to watch.
But Cleo doesn't mind, mostly.
We have the feeling that she is more tolerant with Aaron that she was ever with Barry.
Maybe because Aaron is going to be much stronger in his mind then Barry ever was.
And she knows that.
Another reason could be that Cleo gets older and is more experienced on how to deal with Shepherd energy...
Aaron is a funny guy and he and Cleo are having fun together.
It's always nice to see a young animal grow and to discover it's personality and talents.
I would describe Aaron's personality as sweet, strong and honest.
His talents are many, his biggest asset is his nose.
He sniffs everything and everywhere, he loves to follow odors and to find toys he has miss placed.
One of his favorite toys is a tiny little soft ball - actually Mika's ball, filled with catnip.
He loves to toss and roll it around, and when he pushes it under a piece of furniture, he comes and asks for help to retrieve it.
He's smart without a doubt.
The house training is going well, we just had very minor little accidents lately.
His balance is getting better and better every day and he weighs already 15 kilos! :)
AND HE LIFTS HIS LEG WHEN HE PEES!
I know this blog has lately been almost exclusively about Aaron and his first adventures with his new family but I promise there will be other themes again as we progress into spring. :))
STAY TUNED FOR MORE SPRING NEWS AND ADVENTURES FROM SOUTH SWEDEN!
HAVE A GOOD WEEK EVERYONE!
