Guest Post: Hiking With Raven

(Our regular readers know that Raven is Ruby's brother, but do you recognize him? He's gotten so big! And more handsome than ever.

His awesome mom, puppy raiser Barb, has been sending me photos and updates on Raven's progress and I'm really happy to be able to share them with you. All photos and copy courtesy of Barb & Tom. Enjoy!)

Here are some photos of the hike Tom and I took with Raven New Year's Day. We had a great chance to check some of the large farm animals off Raven's socialization checklist and I thought that we would share the photographic evidence of how well he did. Actually it was all good until the horses started eating his high value treats – the cheesy poufs – and then Raven walked away. Guess we need to work with him more about sharing better.

Introductions –"Raven meet the horses, horses this is Raven"

Raven thinks horses are pretty cool, until they get some of his treats!

And then there was a cow...

but two were starting to get scary; hard to keep an eye on both of them.

So we sat and just watched – but look momma, I am being brave!
