This is my first look at Ajenti, the one on the right. The one on the left is his taller brother.
They regularly get to play with two others born at about the same time: a black-nosed male who had the Dermoid Sinus surgery and his sister who has a wide ridge and a crooked tail. Ajenti up on his hind legs is lighter-colored and shorter-coupled than his brother.
Here are the two brothers again, anxious to get in with their buddies.
Here are the four that I chose from. Neither of the black-nosed pair seemed to compare to the liver-nosed brothers.
Here they are again in the same order. Ajenti is the one on the left. Natalie Carlton thought his brother, the second from the left was show quality. His body was more streamlined, but I like Ajenti's head and eyes better.
Here is Ajenti in my back yard on day-five. I just noticed that I can't recall his ever putting his ears back like Sage did. Maybe he's more self-assured than he was. He is still skittish but has improved tremendously in the five days I've had him.
9-28-13 We just attached a nylon line to Ranger's leash & he's hiding out.
It took but a few moments of wearing the nylon line before his attention was drawn elsewhere.
We're back up in my study and Ranger has chosen a spot right next to us to nap. There is no sign that he is feeling any resentment as a result of the nylon line.
The movie's over and we're settling in for the night. Ranger's a little tangled in the nylon line but he isn't worried about it.
