Going out with a bang!

Maybe Dylan knew it was our last puppy class for a while because, like a veteran performer doing a farewell gig, Dylan decided to replay all her greatest hits tonight! As usual Dylan did a meet and greet round the room and we settled down with the cavapoos Molly and Boo. Well, not exactly settled, … Continue reading Going out with a bang!

They break your heart

On Sunday there was great excitement because Dylan, who is usually Billy no mates (for anyone outside the UK this means she's on her own when we go out) had a date. Friends were coming over to the park - yep the infamous park (see previous post) but I figured Sunday = family day all … Continue reading They break your heart

The cats made me do it!

I think aliens have abducted Dylan and replaced her with a puppy that looks exactly like her, but is willing, obedient and follows all commands - well almost all. That can be the only explanation for tonight's puppy class. Because Dylan nailed it! And I think it's because I made a mistake on the treat … Continue reading The cats made me do it!

Oh no, not the ferret!

Well it was a fun night again at puppy class - but at least I didn't end up in the broom cupboard - result! The trainer met us at the door. Instead of the mad fur blur stampede into class - usually led by Dylan (no surprise there)- we had to line up, our puppies … Continue reading Oh no, not the ferret!

Growing up too fast!

So today has been emotional. I guess unless you are a dog owner, you might not get it - but today Dylan had her first real grown up cut. And I admit I shed a tear before I took her to the groomers, and again when I left her there. Naturally, Dyls skipped off with … Continue reading Growing up too fast!

It was all going so well…

Last week Dylan was named puppy of the night- it seemed that nine weeks of tantrums and trials were finally a thing of the past. We were on our way to glory and moving up to the next stage of puppy class to join Dylan's other friends, Eddie the cockerpoo and Martha the miniature Schnauzer, … Continue reading It was all going so well…

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. Honestly listening to her, anyone would think I put … Continue reading And the award goes to….

Secret Diary of Dylan, aged seven and a half months!

Hi everyone, its me, its Dylan! Mum turned her back for a minute - not a smart move with a Welshie around, but bless her she's not fully trained yet - so I have made off with her I pad! I've heard what mum has been saying about me, especially at puppy class, (mmm not … Continue reading Secret Diary of Dylan, aged seven and a half months!

Treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em keen!

Aha! The mystery of missing in action Martha the Schnauzer and Eddie the cockerpoo was solved tonight. Much to Dylan’s disgust - and yes it was written all over her face - it was revealed that both her former partners in crime have been moved to the super advanced puppy class. A class that Dyls … Continue reading Treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em keen!

8 things I didn’t know before getting a puppy

1. A relaxing bath would be a thing of the past The other night I found some lovely expensive bath oil - leftover from my old life - and decided to have a bit of me time. Sink into the warm, fragrant water - and relax. Errr no! This did not suit Dylan at all … Continue reading 8 things I didn’t know before getting a puppy
