I am knackered! My poor little puppy paws are ready to drop off. I think I definitely need a nap.
Today my humans were celebrating something called mother’s day which seemed to be a day for other humans to come round and play with me – Perhaps I misunderstood and its actually Misaki day?? Although it’s not my birthday till December…
Anyway, I got lots of treats, a new toy and lots of belly rubs so I can’t complain in that respect. But being centre of attention is exhausting! I was constantly having to entertain the humans, as they have no imagination and often sit around not saying much. I tried to live things up by jumping on them to wake them up, but they just got grumpy, and after a while it made me very tired. I hope this mother’s day thing doesn’t happen very often!
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!
Yesterday my humans took me for a drive in the car. I have to say, I’m not a fan. They drove for what seemed like hours, walked me round a small field and drove home again. Pointless! And I got travel sick:-( There is a perfectly good park near our house, which we can walk to and in turn save the planet by reducing our carbon pawprint. I do wonder sometimes!
Today, thankfully, I did go to the park where I met up with my friends Ben and Harry. I like them both a lot but they are a bit dopey. Harry bit his ball in half and then spent the rest of the time whining cos it was broken. What a muppet! Meanwhile my humans got stressed cos I went off to say hello to a few people. Afterall, a stranger is a friend you haven’t met yet, and I believe in being friendly. I made sure I ran back a few times to check they hadn’t got lost (you know what humans are like!), but otherwise I had loads of fun playing with some kid’s football. His parents didn’t seem too happy though. I’m still not sure why!
Everyday I take my humans for walkies. The fresh air and exercise is good for them. Plus they always give me treats to thank me for taking them, so its a win-win situation:-)
They seem to like walking along the main road, which is noisy, smelly and for clueless humans, dangerous. So I tend to steer them to the park which is much nicer. Plus there are pigeons I can chase and often other humans stop to comment how soft and fluffy I am. I must confess, I’m not immune to their flattery.
This morning, we came across a Labrador. So far my interaction with other dogs has been limited to the training class I took my humans to (they did poorly but its early days). So in an attempt to be friendly, I went up to give him a sniff. Poo-ey did he need a bath! So I did what anyone would do in my paws, and I started giving the poor thing a wash. His humans are obviously sub-standard in the hygiene dept. But for some reason he got offended and growled at me in the rudest manner! I can only assume he liked being stinky. Each to their own I guess!
