I have been musing over what we call our dogs. Probably because I've just got back from the gym and Dylan has tried - successfully I might add - to untie my trainer laces which I didn't notice until I tripped over them and nearly fell down the stairs. Mmm.... judging by the smirk on … Continue reading What do you call yours!
Puppy class resumed somewhat later than planned after the holidays as our trainer was unwell. Thankfully nothing serious - probably the thought she was starting the new term with Dylan still in her class caused her to lay in a darkened room with a cold compress across her forehead! It's all change at class. Molly … Continue reading Never ask a lady her age!
So after missing the last two weeks puppy class as I was full of cold one week and worked late the other, Dylan and I were back for the puppy social event of the year- the puppy Christmas party. Now in our absence, turns out that the Cavapoos and original members of Dylan's girlband, Molly … Continue reading Ho ho no! It’s the puppy class Christmas party!
Last week, Dyls and I reached a crossroads. Did we carry on with puppy class, after being dropped yet again from the Good Citizen Bronze, or did we raise the white flag and give up? Well we decided to carry on as Dylan loves her weekly social gathering - she is after all the most … Continue reading Well that proved ‘em wrong!
Dylan and I have finally won an award. Not the coveted Kennel Club Bronze that is slipping further from our grasp, but next week Dylan and I will be officially the longest serving members of puppy class plus. At the moment, Dylan is stomping round the bedroom in pure Welshie sulk mood. I think the … Continue reading Do we carry on?
Back at puppy class after a weeks break and Dylan was raring to go. Watch out world! After all it's only ten days until the Bronze Good Citizen test. Or is it? Boo was missing tonight - seems she's has started her second season and will miss the test. But Mollie the Cavapoo was back … Continue reading Dylan gets dropped!
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!
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!
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!
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!
