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!
So after last week when there was no puppy class - because the chosen puppies which didn't include Dyls, were taking their Bronze Good Citizen award, we were back this week. And a bit late in posting as we've had all sorts of things going on this week with decorators and carpet fitters! Aslan the … Continue reading Dylan has a date!
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!
And so after six long weeks we were back. The return to puppy class... and the irony wasn’t lost on me that it also happened to be Dylan Thomas day - the writer that Dyls is named after. It might have been Mr Thomas’s day - but the night belonged to Dylan. So we arrived, … Continue reading And we are back… in the broom cupboard!
At the end of last summer I was in Spain with my friend Sue. The poor woman couldn't enjoy her evening Sangria round the pool without me whipping out my phone and showing her yet again the videos and photos of this little chubby puppy I was picking up the day after we got back. … Continue reading Can’t take Dylan anywhere!
We were ready. We were prepared. We were going to conquer puppy class. Dyls and I were gonna rock! Yeah well I ended up in a broom cupboard and Dyls got put on the naughty step, oh, and Boo the Cavapoo got sent home! So much for planning! And boy, had we planned. A walk … Continue reading Love it when a plan goes…..wrong!
