Violet's current interest in tennis balls corresponds perfectly with my current interest in figuring out my camera settings, and more specifically exploring differences in shutter speed. Unfortunately, they're probably a bit redundant for you, but today's were fun. I have a Superdog!
Meanwhile, Griffin is still here as a foster that we've been leaning toward keeping, and it's becoming clearer every day that he simply does not like us. He's aloof, hates to be touched, picked up, held. He's not anxious or fearful in any way, Violet likes him (it is not mutual), he's technically fitting in well, it's just clear that he is not that into us. We will continue to foster him as long as necessary regardless, but it's probably time to consider whether we're a good fit for him. We like him - he's an intelligent, funny, feisty puppy, but he definitely does not feel the same. Now, while he's still a foster pup and very young, is probably a better time to realize that than when he's a year old and still hates us.
So, we'll see how that develops. Maybe we'll grow on him. The ball's kind of in his court. If not, we'll foster him as we would have otherwise, and when he is done with all of his veterinary care and ready for a new home, revisit our dog situation.
In the meanwhile, Violet and I will keep on taking pictures in the backyard.
