Happy 8th Birthday to Dash!
« on: July 04, 2014, 08:45:13 PM »
The Bubba turned 8 today! He's a little slower, a little heavier, but still a hell of a guy.



I wish I had pictures of him in a consistent body position since his head/neck look different when he's sitting, laying, standing, but impressed I found a right-side profile for every year!

I haven't posted about it here, but Dash is currently in a Behavior Modification program at a local training studio. The program is similar to all the other things I've done with him, but with a bigger focus on his mental state than outward positions/behaviors. He's doing really well in semi-privates (one other dog but they can't see each other due to barriers) and I'm hopefully that he may actually be able to visit with more people and live a fuller life in the near future. Unlike the other methods I've tried, this one has a support system - lots of people and dogs to work with so that he can get in the reps and generalize the right behavior.

I was really surprised when I saw the photos all together.  Aaron teases him and calls him "Gray Beard", but really it is just a little bit of frosting.  :smitten:

I think Xena was 5x as gray, at least, by his age!
