Patient Progress

Fish School Hot Fuzz is now in fish school. He is currently learning how to eat fish on his own. All pups are initially hand-fed, but later fish is just thrown into their tub to give them an opportunity to dive for, grab and swallow the fish whole, head first. It's something all pups need to learn, and it requires quite some skill. Eventually, Hot Fuzz will eat entirely on his own at which point he will graduate from fish school.
