I think we’ve broken her!

After tonight, I think our poor trainer has finally admitted defeat! And strangely it wasn't just down to Dylan- though of course, the little monster did pull quite a few moves out of the bag! Literally! Following last week when we were told Dylan wasn't ready to take her Bronze Good Citizen, the trainer had … Continue reading I think we’ve broken her!

Dylan’s revenge!

Dyls was up for it tonight. We went for long walk in the woods in the afternoon and worked on our strategy. Me: Dyls it's not long to the Good Citizen exam, we have to step up our game. Dyls: Yeah whatever, ooh is that a squirrel. I could have that! OK, maybe I was … Continue reading Dylan’s revenge!

Oh sss…sausages!

We've been practising. After last weeks news that we have been entered for our Bronze Good Citizen award, Dyls and I are on a mission. So it was with determined optimism we went into puppy class. Dylan as usual had to do her meet and greet with everyone. Not just the pupsters in her class, … Continue reading Oh sss…sausages!

It’s getting serious!

Puppy class took a serious turn in more ways than one tonight. So as usual Dyls bounced into class. Lots of playing and jumping with Boo. She even decided to spare the time to play with Boycie the feisty pug. Her latest crush Aslan the Leonburger is in holiday, but undeterred Dyls turned her attention … Continue reading It’s getting serious!

Normal service is resumed!

And so we are back at puppy class. After almost ten weeks relaxing in France, it was time to get back to business and for Dyls to start the journey towards the Good Citizen Bronze award. Ok stop laughing at the back, and the front and sides - let's try and be positive! I spoke … Continue reading Normal service is resumed!

Mops, mice and memories

Our summer in France is going far too fast. I can hardly believe we have been here since June. As I write this Dylan is doing zoomies round the garden with her cousins Harley and Wiglet, and she's smiling. I'm listening to the birds singing, and looking at the never ending fields that have already … Continue reading Mops, mice and memories

The vet is my new best friend!

Well amazingly Dylan made it to a year old - despite the trip to the vets. And on Sunday had her birthday party with Harley and Wiglet. Squirty cream and sponge cake with a candle of course! Mmmmm, maybe only dog owners will get that bit. Others may just think I am mad - but … Continue reading The vet is my new best friend!

Keep her quiet they said…Yeah right!

It was all going so well. Dylan has been having a brilliant summer in France. Her naughtiness has reached new levels - see previous post Dylan what have you got in your mouth now? - and she's learnt how to chase chickens and pull their tails. Thanks for that Wiglet. But on Thursday evening disaster … Continue reading Keep her quiet they said…Yeah right!

Dylan,what have you got in your mouth now?

Oh we have a problem. As I've shared before, Dylan does have the touch of the Artful Dodger about her. Ever the opportunist, my Naughty little Welshie will steal anything she shouldn't. The soundtrack of summer is "Dylan, what have you got in your mouth now?" Well actually, that's the polite version - it's more … Continue reading Dylan,what have you got in your mouth now?
