Mostly a companion and protector for my wife. We live out in the country where nobody can hear you scream. We will take obedience training as far as we can and I want to get him into some light service work as my wife is mildly disabled.

I would love to use him for a service dog to visit the sick and elderly. He has the temperament for it so far. We will see how he develops.

In the short time we have had him, he has been such a good boy. We have had a couple of outings and he hasn't shown any fear and seems to really like people. We may go visit the dog trainers today just to introduce him.

Last night he had both ears up on his own for a short time. He is definitely holding the other ear out away from his head.

I love the ear dance.

We have fallen in love with him already. So darn cute.

I have been trying to capture a good representation of the size of Dagr's paws. I tried this today. Keep in mind that I have extremely large hands. Size 12 ring finger and wear an extra large glove. Also keep in mind that he is only 8.5 weeks old.

Sorry for the low quality photo but trying to take a cell phone shot with one hand while holding his paw while he chews on my thumb with the other was more challenging than I thought. :)

Dagr at 11 weeks. We have Ears!!! Last week we noticed his right ear up a few times. By Friday he was holding it up and it hasn't dropped since. His left ear has been a little more erect and I saw him turn it a couple of times in the past few days. He is starting to get some control.
