Anyway, long story shorter, Duncan reminded me that he still needs a lot of life experience. Poor guy's heart was beating out of his chest every time he saw Scout off in the distance, and Bella racing around bucking didn't help. He could barely focus on me at all.
He did put all 4 feet in this puddle for me. Isn't he cute with his googly eyes all worried?
I made him a special new halter with beads that have spirals on them (kind of like his spiral curls). It doesn't photograph super well, but you get the idea.
Oh, and John got a new job! He'll be working for a company that makes custom homes. He's really excited about it. It's mostly commission based so things might be tight the first year, but then it should really take off. He's the good kind of salesman. Finds the right fit for the customer without being pushy about it.
