See how he's grown!


Those are bachelor buttons he's standing beside - 3 foot tall bachelor buttons.

This is him compared in size to Xoco. Remember, Xoco is 3 years old and Hector is 9 weeks old:

Hector on Xoco

Don't worry, she held her own and had him flipped on his back in short order.

These may be among the last photos I take of him.  He may soon be getting a forever home with a semi-retired soldier.  That's a soldier who retired and then went back to work for the military in a civilian capacity, doing almost the same work. Hector will be spending all of his time with his new person, on and off the job, as he will be taken out to the fields for survey work and he will have a number of similar sized dogs to play with and learn from. One of the men there lost his dog and is ready for a new one. Plus, if he doesn't want Hector, there are 2 others there looking for a dog to train up, and Hector is getting to the right age for that.

They will check him out later this week and see who matches up best with him.

I knew Hector would probably become a soldier's dog. He just seems like he should be.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
