Glimmer of hope...he may be growing a brain cell or two!
Lately Baker has had moments of actually acting like a real dog...he has become fascinated with the birds and squirrels and loves to be outside stalking, pointing, and chasing. If you look closely in this picture, you can see the squirrel on the side of the tree; Baker held this point, perfectly still, for at least twenty minutes the other day. He even held the point when it started raining (which is an amazing feat because he is petrified of rain and has been known to refuse for hours to go out and do his business just because it was raining!). (For those of you unfamiliar with the Brittany breed, they are hunting dogs, who "point" at game with their nose to alert their master, and trained dogs also learn to flush out the game on command...)
