Obedience

A good 70% of the problem is that the Little Fayoumis is used to obeying me immediately. If I say "frog", he jumps. I have him very well-trained.

So we're working on getting him to obey them with the same speed and accuracy. They've been practicing. Whenever he fails to obey now, instead of getting in serious bad trouble, he admits his mistake and asks for them to tell him something so that he can do it.

It'll take time, but there's already serious improvement. Just today.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
