He's probably about 4 months old here,
And over a year here. We got rid of this chair when we left Christchurch, but I like how it shows the passage of time in these two photos.
I took these three photos in December last year. Pedro has calmed down recently (Finally! He's only 3 years old), but I think he will always be a cheeky puppy really.
And this is more his true colours. The other day we had contractors on site at work, and in one of the elcetrician's trucks there was a beautiful, distinguished black lab, who had been going to work every day since he was 10 weeks old! I don't think Pedro will ever have that kind of decorum!
We are having problems at the moment with him getting hotspots in the humid Auckland weather. In the warm, moist conditions Staphylococcus multiplies rapidly, getting into any small nicks or scrapes, causing a red, inflamed, itchy patch, which quickly becomes a pussy, weepy sore. (Sorry for the mental images!) Pedro was recently on a two week course of antibiotics, and is now on another week-long course. It's beginning to look like this may be an ongoing battle for us during the summer-time, has anyone else had any experiences with these hotspots? Oh and if you have a double coated dog (e.g. lab, rottweiller, german shepard) please be on the lookout during this warm weather!
