White cap check in
« on: November 18, 2012, 08:59:28 AM »
Checking in my now 8 month old white cap, Maximus. I have had him 4 months and adore him. He is developing a vocabulary: hello, i love you, good boy...I have not deciphered the rest. He loves to tell me about his day of foraging when I get home. He eats a healthy diet of most foods offered to him. He is energetic - jumping & swinging upside down. And he loves foot toys. He is really sweet and I hope he stays that way.

Any other white caps lovers have stories to tell?

Aw, yah, he is a a cute one! Hey, do you get your photos aspect ratio off kilter? He looks a little skinny from either in the width or height direction! I no longer have any WCP's.

Whatever program I used to condense photos to post seems to distort all my photos. But Max is on smaller side for white cap. My vet feels he is healthy though with the amount of muscle he has. Max also tends to stretch his neck during photos as he reaches toward camera. I had not realized you no longer had a wc Jan.  I recall reading about yours. I believe it was a female wc.

Thanks for thinking Max is cute Eloy. I am working with him a bit and I need to train more with him. Hoping that will keep him as well adjusted ss possible. He really is quite wonderful with me and calm as he observes Charlie. Max seems to do well with new addition. Although Charlie is teaching Max is scream! Arghh! Worrking on Charlie and his screaming.....

Good news. I must apparently say Mommy loves you to Max a lot. He just started saying it two days ago. He is quite cute with his raspy voice.

So no other wc to check in?

As for your photos try looking for a box that says preserve aspect ratio and then it should stay the same as original just smaller. I use IRFANveiw which is free and it does a great job.

Check this one I did out with my program. I turned off the preserve aspect ratio so I could adjust it, otherwise it would have stayed square.
