Nicky

I brought my camera along for Friday's walk and Saturday's run, and put together a short video of what Nicky is like. Enjoy. (Or not.)

It's grainier than ususal because I shrunk it down for "web streaming".

Update: higher res version

Wow, I'm exhausted just watching him. Thanks for reminding me why we can't add a dog to our family just yet.

Zoe thinks he's cute.

Well, he's rather more active than your average dog. I definitely don't recommend this breed for someone looking for a "pet". Dad specifically bought him for hunting with. He really should be on a farm, rather than in the city, though.

ha! he reminds me of my sil's dog. and well, my boxer ging, but she is pretty relaxed when I want her to be. :)

That firewood bit cracked me up. You're definitely right about him needing to be on a farm; he was so happy on his run! The one suggestion I had for the rabbit incidents is to have him sit/stay and then turn around and walk in the other direction. He's a smart dog, obviously. I don't know many dogs who can untangle themselves like that.

noricum said...

Yep, firewood is the only thing that lasts any length of time with him. Although eventually dad's going to run out of a woodpile...

Empty peanut butter containers are entertaining for us watching him. ;) (And that's about how long they last too.)

I'll try the changing directions thing, but it probably won't work... he's bred to be a hunting dog, and that's also what dad wants him for.

Dad taught him to untangle himself. He's pretty good at it.

Oh, and yeah... he *loves* the running!

Sara said...

Awww! He gets so happy for his walk!

Not really into the "heel" thing, is he? :-) The rabbit bit was so funny listening to the noises he made: "I want it! I want it! Please, please let me chase it!"

See, this is why I like cats. ;-)

noricum said...

Well, I like cats except for how severely allergic I am to them. :(

And no... he definitely doesn't "heel". I wouldn't mind if he'd just pull a bit less... (where the camera gets jerky and you can hear my footfalls? That's because I'm doing all I can not to be pulled over!)
