theobesegeek asked: Is Ralph still as mellow as he was when he was little puppy?
kinda sorta not really?
he is still very much a potato dog at heart. right now, he’s splooted out right underneath my feet. he’ll let us pick him up and flop him about, and his favorite spot is laying ON me, whether laying down on my chest or curled up on my lap, which is always a heartmelter.
however, he has really come out of his shell. a lot. he has become a bit the instigator, chasing Dori around the yard, tackling her whenever he catches up. the other day, our neighbor’s chickens (yeah, our neighbors have like 20 chickens) were loose in our yard, and he went into full-blown chicken herding mode. he even got 8 of them back into their coop (how he knew where the coop even was is beyond me). i was in hysterics, watching his natural herding drive kick in.
so, though he still is the most mellow puppy ever, he really has been developing into a well-rounded and gregarious pup :)
