Arrival Story: I was bought from a breeder in Nebraska for an ungodly amount of money and was flown in on American Airlines to my new home in beautiful Irvine, California. I was diagnosed with kennel cough on my second day here but I'll be better after my antibiotics. My mom and dad didn't think I was able to bark until I was home for a whole day, then I unleashed 20 straight minutes of barking on Smashy because he wouldn't pay attention to me.
Bio: I have the best personality, spunky and playful, but I'll cuddle up in anyone's lap when they want me to.
Well, new sister has arrived and been here for about 3 weeks now. We have decided to name her Kiwi, because she's little and brown just like a kiwi fruit. She's great but much different from me. She's a little more nervous and has separation anxiety so she barks when locked up in the bathroom and this gives me a headache. We sure do love her though.
I've also been working on new tricks! My mom taught me how to do 4 tricks (shake, down, crawl, and roll over) in 30 minutes the other night. Then the next day she taught me how to walk on my hind legs and dance too! She says I'm really brilliant which may be true but the real truth is that I just want the BEEF JERKEY!!!! GIMME GIMME GIMME!
So I no longer refuse to walk on a leash, in fact I'm quite good at it. I learned when my mom got me a harness and we went to the San Diego Brussels Griffon meetup and saw all the other dogs walking on a leash, I just followed them! BTW those SD BGs are super cool and we love meeting up with them. Little sister Kiwi even got to go to the last one.
I've decided to start a new group called "Southern California Brussels Griffon Society" to meet other Griffies in So Cal and we hope our group can represent Brussels Griffons at next years Orange County Pet Expo! We think that would be really cool and hope others want to join us!
A new addition will be added to our family. My mom and dad decided to get me a sister that is literally my sister, we have the same sire! I am so excited and she will be arriving this Wednesday, September 5th.
Well, let's just say things have taken a turn for the worse! My "cool" family is trying to make me walk on a leash. I will have none of that! My mom to me for a 10 minute "drag" around the house today thinking I would eventually give in, but even with coaxing with treats they are still at square one. When daddy got home he even tried to get me to do it but I just planted my butt on the ground and my front paws too. Those "clowns" are so funny thinking that I would walk on a leash. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!
