We went to Brighton to see Kati. She's recently acquired a puppy and she asked to come over to let Aratakara play with him. She told me that in the first few months of puppy's life, it's very important to socialise with children to develop a good relationship with human beings.
Zebedee is a cute puppy with black and white patches on his coat. He reminds me of our family dog, 2nd Koro. It's quite interesting that lots of trend of how to bring up puppies are similar to what we do to babies, especially the trend of in this country! Well, Zebedee has already started his toilet training and I envy Kati.
As we expected, Takara was quite brave and he played with Zebedee quite well. Takara put his toys into his own mohth, and he was going to eat his food, as well, but he pointed a grain of dog food to Zebedee saying, "Koko (= here)" or told him, "No more (food)" when Takara learnt no more food would be given to him for that meal. In the photo that Takara is squatting, he is observing Zebedee with joy. He looked amazed with every movement of Zebedee.
Arata was very keen only in the first couple of minutes. He had been saying, "I'm going to see a puppy, I'm going to touch it!" for a couple of days. But after he saw a real little puppy moving around, he started to feel frightened. Arata kept screaming whenever Zebedee coming to him. Probably this is exactly puppy needs to experience in his early stage?
We went to a pub overlooking 180 degree panoramic view of sea! Beautiful. It was as if we were in Southern Europe holiday resort.
