For Javelin it was hard to learn how to behave around the chickens. For lily and Peeves they were introduced to and frequently shown growing chicks and rewarded for being polite and relaxed. All that Javelin knew was that they were almost as big as him at first and that they made lots of noise and ran like crazy.
In October 2015 Lily was still mostly ignoring Javelin, but being bigger it was getting harder for her to pretend he didn't exist.
It is amazing how many things Javelin got to do in his first year. I don't have pictures handy for everything, but his accomplishments include Rally Novice title before he turned one and CGC just after.
It is also amazing to me to see him looking small, even though that didn't last too long.
Happy Gotcha Day! I love all the pics with Lilly where she is averting her eyes or looks like she is rolling her eyes. Did she ever come to tolerate him? Or is it still a "can we just leave him somewhere and run" sort of relationship?
