It seems like it was just yesterday when I first brought Char Siew home. He was six weeks old - and I fell in love with him when I saw him at the Vet. I knew I was just ready for another dog so I immediately gave an offer to his former humans. He is now one year old ( he celebrated his first birthday on February 14 ). Like any growing boy, he is now ready for school.
I decided to give him the same education that his brother and sister had. He is going to Rak-9 Training under Gio Marcelo. We actually benefited a lot from the training that Midori got from Gio. I actually told my friends that after the training - Midori was like a new dog - very obedient. Some bad habits have resurfaced since then --- but I just know that she's actually very obedient - especially when I'm approached by other Beagle owners and asked if I had her go through training.
When Midori was in training, I missed her terribly. I remember looking forward to the day that I had to pick her up. Back then - leading to the time that I was going to drop her off with Gio - I didn't really have any concerns. This time with Char Siew it's different. I'm already getting sadder as Saturday approaches. I do not look forward to missing him during those 15 days that he will be with Gio. So now - I try to spend as much time as I could with him. Sigh.
