Katie! This video has me smiling ear to ear! Wow! That is exceptional! What an achievement by Jasper! Please let him know how proud I am of him! And you are doing an amazing job as his trainer... and as his mom.

Most impressive.

Re: Puzzle Complete!!

Thanks everyone!! We started his puzzle 2 years ago but obviously had to take a big break when he was so ill last year. So it's hard to gauge how long it took for him to learn the whole thing.


From the first piece he understood the concept, it was always about the dexterity of moving the pieces, turning them around and making them fit.



He's hilarious too -- he has found where very single piece fits (where it shouldn't). I'd look at him and say 'technically yes...'


@Jim - He's been great! No issues (can't even describe the relief...). He gets a low dose of calcium in his water daily (CalciBoost) and I sprinkle ClayCal on his food daily as well. He's due for his blood work to be re-checked and maybe I can stop the calcium for a bit. Thanks for asking!

Re: Puzzle Complete!!

So amazing! I hope my boy can do that one of these days. Just out of curiosity, what are you using for treats during this process?

Small pieces of slivered almonds, or I break a whole almond in half.
