And the award goes to….

Something very strange happened this week at puppy class. Dylan as usual couldn’t wait to get there and did a “poor me I am going to play puppy victim” crying in the the car  as we had arrived too early and had to wait it out.

Snow, a BIG surprise and Shiraz! Oh and we find a leading man!

Tonight something surprising happened at puppy class. Nope put away the champagne in anticipation that Dylan, for once, behaved. Those corks can stay corked!

Seemed like a good plan!

This week I came up with a cunning plan in readiness for tonight's puppy class.
