I've mentioned elsewhere that I set myself a challenge about trying to take a single pet as far as possible in each show type. I'm currently doing that with Raffles, but I thought it would be fun to start training the next pet I'll do that with.
So, here are three dogs I'm currently raising:
This is Truff (as in Truffle), originally named Sela. I adopted her from meowlissa.
My idea was to pick an unwanted dog to do this challenge with, to sort of fit the "shelter" theme I have going on. Truff is the #1 contender for this and was a breeding reject.
This is a dog I bred before my hiatus. He doesn't have a name yet because I think he looks like a wolf and would like to name him accordingly, but I also love the name Oscar for him... except it sounds like a default Dachie name.
He's not necessarily a contender for this particular challenge, but I still wanted to naturally raise him and train him. He's a bit older than the others -- he's still not fully grown but I was still bringing him out a lot before my hiatus.
Finally, this is a PUGS dog I bought today from lunarlex. Her name is technically Beach, but I'm thinking of changing it to something autumn/forest-themed.
In short: my goal is to train and raise Truff, with the other two as playmates, but I might change the challenge dog to one of the others, depending on how well they do.
I decided to try some frisbee today. Raffles has achieved the highest Frisbee title, so while I might still enter frisbee shows with him if I can, I'll be bringing another frisbee dog into it soon.
I picked the beach as a nice spot to play but... Truff was the only one who didn't decide to take a nap instead.
Sela and the "wolf dachie" didn't seem very interested in the frisbee.
Truff would mostly run around on her own (or get angry at the others). "Wolf dachie" seemed to be trying to chase the frisbee but not very well. "Beach" was the only one who actually jumped for the frisbee. Sure, she mostly failed, but I'm not worried -- she's still really young and Raffles was BAD at frisbee when he was starting out.
I'd previously noticed Truff getting along badly with even my more chill pets, but now it's confirmed xD She's really grumpy.
As a reward, I took them to the playroom and let them loose to play with whatever toys they chose. Interestingly, they seem a lot less obsessed with the auto-rolling ball than my other pets!
