Saturday’s are always a busy day for me. In the morning I have to wake mummy up early so she can do lots of housework. She would feel terrible if she just stayed in bed all morning and missed the opportunity to hoover and tidy-up after me. So even if she tries to go back to sleep after she’s given me my breakfast, it’s important for me to keep nudging her and jumping on her until she gets moving. What a good pup I am!
Then I have to take her to training class, which is always loads of fun.
While I’m doing all that, don’t forget to pop by and comment on Doggy‘s Movember post, just to recap, he’s donating 50 cents to this fantastic cause for every comment left on his post, found here. He’s hoping to get to 100, so if you haven’t done so already, please leave a comment.
While you’re at Doggy’s you can also vote in the Greatest Contest of All Time. The competition is fierce, but I would like to give you a gentle nudge in the direction of LLCD‘s entry as she has kindly offered to donate her prize to Battersea Dog’s Home.
Have a great saturday!!
As you know, I take my humans to training class twice a week (they are very slow learners) and I love going as I have lots of friends there. In fact, as soon as the car door opens I run as fast I can can to get into the hall where its held
So tonight mummy tried to take some photos of my friends from training, but we were all playing about so much, some of them are a little blurred:
I’ve been doing some soul-searching ever since. The reason I found myself on this path was my humans making me redundant from my dish washing role. What’s to say they won’t do something like that again in the future?? It seems to me I need to work on their training to prevent future hiccups.
I’ve decided to concentrate on one at a time, so I took my human daddy to an extra class on saturday. It was exhausting, but I actually made some progress, and was rewarded with 2 silver stars by the trainer for my efforts! Its going to be an uphill struggle as they seem to be particularly slow, but its definitely a step in the right direction.
But now I really need to catch up on my sleep.
In my personal opinion, training is necessary when living with humans. They try, bless them, but often need help. Last night the 9 puppies and I lined up with our humans, while our instructor, a large German Shepherd, showed us the best way to walk your human. The good thing was he’d brought his human along and was able to demonstrate in front of us. It was very instructive. If only my human was as well behaved as his! But no matter, it is early days.
I tried out a few of the moves this morning during our trip to the park. My human hasn’t quite picked it up yet, but there was some improvement. She certainly seemed pleased and gave me treats, which of course is the main thing!
