Bread coming along

Went home early cause in Swaziland most everyone goes home early on Friday.

So Bread is learning how to go to the bathroom outside. This little guy is learning quick, although he is still hit and miss on the peeing and pooping in the house. But at least a couple of times he has gone out on his own.

His mother came around, she must have caught his smell since I have been taking him out. I grabbed him rubbed him against my chest and walked outside. Of course he followed me right at my feet. I don't think she liked his smell, which includes soap smell. He saw his mother went to her, tried to get some milk and was rejected she ran off. Bread came running back and got a treat. By the way his treats are bread & small cut up pieces of Russians (sausages).

He knows his name and comes when called. And he knows the word "no". His health has improved a bunch. He has energy and plays like a puppy should. It took a week before I saw that.

He has separation anxiety problems when I am in the house and he isn't right next to me. If I am in the other room and the door is closed he pees and makes noise. Although in sleeping times, he is generally all good.

His skin problem kind of seems to be clearing up and he has a visit to the Vet on Tuesday for shots, etc.
