"The day we brought him home picture" - oohhh, how precious. What a face.

At nine months, so how much furniture has he chewed up. Been buying new hiking boots each month, or do have a solid closet door that prevents canine entry? I could be wrong, but he has that "what trouble can I get into next" swagger.

He is actually a pretty good dog. He chewed up one pair of slippers, and has gnawed on a few pairs of shoes (but no real damage) - other than that, no real damage to the house or clothes or anything. He is just about a year old now and coming into his own. My wife and I were commenting we think his head is bigger now than his whole body was when we got him. Amazing how tiny he was....

I have a small beagle sized Hinze 57 that is also the shape of a tube. I use a collar at night and leash him up to a runner under my hammock. He has enough leash to get up into my hammock with me if I want but not so much that he gets into the tie-outs for the tarp. It does take some time training them to the collar if they are not use to it.

Consider a RuffWear harness. It has two straps that go under the chest and belly area. The leash attaches on top and it has the added bonus of a handle.

This is Willie. He came home from the Oregon Humane society on Wednesday. They think he is a Springer-Pointer mix. I can confirm that he is a very good boy. I am going to pick up some kind of puppy carrying harness or backpack so he can come with me mushroom hunting. I tried popping him in a basket, but that proved to be his favorite chew toy yet. I hope to train him to hunt for truffles. While I've only heard of folks training dogs for truffles, I don't see why he couldn't learn to find chanterelles as well...

After a couple days of playing and feeding he has become much more comfortable..
