Today is 2 weeks since Lync came home.
It is fun to have a totally different temperament here then what I am used to. He is exactly what I thought a Flatcoat would be like. He is confident & outgoing. He is not afraid of stairs or floors or jumping up on the bed, missing & falling off. He just trys again. He is stubborn & can be a greedy guts, if one of the other dogs has a toy he wants he just runs & grabs it from them , he is learning this is not allowed lol!
He is much quieter & calmer then I expected. If I am tired & I don't feel like doing stuff he relaxes beside me & sleeps. He is an awesome dog in his crate, & goes quietly to bed when it is time, & does not make a peep until about 8 am. He is learning jumping on the counter is not allowed, & jumping up for his food bowl gets him nowhere.
He is slowly learning Tate is off limits, unless Tate initiates first. Tate is funny, if he is laying upstairs & Lync even sniffs him, he will go downstairs & hide, he was like that with Kort as well so it's nothing against Lync :)
Kort is finally getting better with Lync, Collies do not lick faces in play like the Flatcoats do, & they don't like it either, so Lync had a few lessons in acceptable Collie play. Kort is now initiating play with Lync more & more & I am thrilled. I always felt bad for Kort when I brought him home as a puppy. Tate was not a player, he never ever played with poor Kort, Kort loves to play , he is a big puppy at heart. He now has a playmate to grow old with & keep him company. ♥
I am excited to train Lync, I am not a fan of dog training, I love the end result, I just dislike getting there, but training Lync feels different. I get a chance to have a "do over", to get it right this time. I know the mistakes I made with Kort in his early training & I won't make those mistakes again.
Anyway, the last two weeks have flown by, can't wait for the next two!
