Happy Second Birthday big man! Over the last few weeks, Ike has been beefing up and shining his shoes in preparation of his big day next Saturday. He is getting well aquainted with the grooming table, and much to his dismay he has been asked to enjoy his meals on it as well in the hopes that this will help him form more positive associations with it. We are taking daily trips to Petsmart, Petco, and Southcenter mall to help him get used to his admirers, crowds and noises associated with those things. He is baiting in all of these places now and focus on me is much improved, although he still initially gets “jello buns” aka the performance jitters/shakes.
