... the Hero of Canton, the Dog we call JAYNE!
Yep, you guessed it - a Jayne update!
We've had Jayne for just over two months, and he's completely stolen our hearts. He's such a great dog - he's smart, biddable, sweet and very pretty! We've worked through most of his issues quickly, mostly by just letting him be a dog and not micromanaging him. He still has a hard time making his own decisions, but he's getting better.
He's great with the fosters - he loves Riley and he put up with Alli's alligator impersonations. He doesn't seem to have a mean bone in his body, and has been great with Ronin so far. The corgis don't like him, but I think that's just because he's so much bigger than any other dog they've ever interacted with... and that makes him scary by default.
Jayne will make his show debut in Amana, IA next month. I'll be showing him as an Altered Dog, hopefully there are enough other Altered entries that he'll get his ALCH title. I've never had him in the ring before, so I've got my fingers crossed that he behaves and can pull himself together long enough to get some big pink and purple rosettes!
All in all, Jayne's a great dog and I don't regret saving him for an instant. We couldn't ask for a more special red boy... he's a keeper!
