A Busy Day

Yesterday Triton had a busy day. I took him for a walk around the neighborhood. Then when we got home, a boy was next door and had a big beach ball he was rolling up and down the fence line. Triton ran along the fence with him for a good half hour. He really loved it. Eventually, he go so tired he layed down in the yard and took a nap. Last night my neighbor and I sat at the fire pit, he brought his shepard Max over and the two played for an hour. Max went home and Triton took another nap. All in all, it was a good dayfor him. It was alot of fun just watching him run up and down the fence. When you see a 110lb dog acting like a small puppy, that’s entertainment!

A Great Walk

Triton went for a good long walk tonight. He doesn’t really seem to enjoy his walks, but, tolerates them. He enjoys interacting with the neighbors, especially the kids in the neighborhood. So, we walked tonight for a good 40 minutes and he trotted the whole way. The walk finished with a visit to the neighborhood convenience store where he greeted a customer with a simple sniff. It is surprising how easy going he can be and how well he deals with new environments. I’ll be posting some new pictures within the next couple of days.

A Break in the Weather

Well the weather here in Michigan is starting to turn. This is great for Triton. He has never minded the cold, but, I let him stay out longer now. I go out and wrestle with him in the yard now that I can tolerate the temp. He really likes spending time outside. It also helps him burn off some of that energy. Next week when his stritches are out, he will be free to resume play with the neighborhood pack, which he wants to do soooo bad!

Back in the Swing of Things

Well, Triton is back to his normal routine.  His ear is healing nicely.  Most important, his attitude is back to normal.  He is back to being his normal hyper self.  It’s great to see he is not phased by the whole experience.  His last trip to the vet included alot of play time with just about everyone in the office.

A Tough Day

Triton had a tough day this week. On a walk through the neighborhood, a dog got off leash and attacked him. He bit into his right ear and he had to go to the vet for stitches. Suprisingly, his experience has not made him timid around other dogs. He is still just as social as before the event. The owners feel horrible and are taking appropriate steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Triton’s resilience is just an example of how the Mastiff is a noble pet.
