Some of you have asked about how the other canine kids are reacting to the puppies. I mentioned in an earlier post that Ridge was nonchalant; Kenya, Tuc, and Chessie were somewhat interested, but no more interested in litter noises than, say, a passing squirrel; Pinot, I said, was fascinated.
Fascinated, I've since learned, is the understatement of the year. She's obsessed. She would stand at that half-wall and stare at those puppies 24/7 if we let her.
Here's a video capturing her focus. The only break in her attention happens early on when I bump the gate and she looks for a way to get around the wall through that gate. After that, her gaze is unmoving and fixed on the puppies.
We knew she could focus and that she had a great attention span (that's part of what makes her an excellent retriever). But, oh my, I guess never realized just how great.
Here she is! Enjoy. :)
