I hope Jackson is as handsome as Rupert. Rupert's pictures you posted helped me to decide not to crop his ears. He is following "sit" 100%, very little distractions around here. We even started on "down" today. He just went into his open crate to take a nap on his own. We could not be happier with his enthusiasm and energy, and smarts. Only one "tinkle" in the house while playing. We are taking him out frequently, almost getting the timing down. We'll see.
