Arrival Story: We wanted to get a pal for Buddy. I thought we would get another larger Cockapoo but all that was available in a female was black in color. I realized I could not do another black so soon after my Scrappy has been gone. Buddy's breeder Lucile showed me a picture of the most beautiful chocolate Labradoodle that she was only offering to a select few and that was it! Hubby and I discussed, and the next day I told her we wanted her. I picked her up on Sept. 1st in Ohio, and she was a perfect pup on the planes :) We had quite a layover between flights and really got to know one another. She sniffed every inch of my face and then proceeded to licke very -where she smelled. I guess I passed the test because she settled right into my chest and took a nap. Needless to say she stole my heart :)
Bio: Kona is a hoot :) She is a lovey kissy girl that likes to be touching you as she chews a treat, and absolutley adores having her belly rubbed by everyone. She is one tough cookie with her big brother, but very respectful to other dogs, and absolutely adores other puppies. She will lay on her side and wave her paws at them to try to get them to play with her. She is the perfect addition to our family and we couldn't imagine what we did without her!
Now poor Buddy is another story! She is like a tazmanian devil with him :) She pulls his ears, bites at his chin and actually has to be detached at times because her razor sharp teeth get caught and I find her hanging from his beard! He is such a patient big brother and let's her crawl all over him like he was a jungle gym. She wants to do everything he does, and it is actually making her training quite pleasant. She has made our family complete, and we couldn't be happier!
Wow, mom sure has been lax in keeping our diaries updated! I was buggin her about it, and she finally found some time to help write.
Ocean Beach was a blast! I went into the water the furthest I've ever been :) It was fun chasing Buddy and the other pups there through the water and sand.
Mom was a little upset with me though, I don't understand why.......
When people came past with these big scary hats on, I tried to drive them away by running up to each and every one of them and barking.
Now, you'd think I would get a reward for keeping them away, I don't think soooooooo. I also made sure anyone that passed our back patio made sure not to do it again, eve when they were pretty far away. Aren't we supposed to be guard dogs???????
She is threatening me with something that sounded like "citronella collar" wonder what that could be? Anyway, we still all had a great time, can't wait till the next beach outing.........
I did pass my puppy classes and have now advanced to intermediate. Guess what! My brother Buddy is in my class too! I really like it except I would much rather lay down for a stay than sit. I don't know why mommy and everyone else thinks it's so important to "sit stay", geesh.
We went to Reno for Christmas to visit our grandpawrents and had such a great time. They had this stuff called snow, and I really liked it, wish there would have been more! I went digging for mushrooms and found a few dried dead birds. I don't know why everyone was so upset with my retrieving efforts, isn't that what I am meant to do ??????????
I am told we now have plans to visit someplace called Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach. Mom tells me it's gonna be alot like when we visited the beach in Santa Barbara only better, sounds like fun to me.
I think we are just about caught up, bark at you later!
Well, I think I really like these puppy classes! Just me and Thor, the 9 week old german sherpard in the class. He tried to put some wrestling moves on me the first week, but not to worry I put him right on his back and growled in his face! I think his male owner was a little shocked that little ol me could discipline his German Shepard HEE HEE.
We worked on Sit, Stand, and Down last week. This week we are doing down from a standing position, stays and come. That come is fun! Mommy was at one end of an isle in Petsmart and Daddy was at the other. One of them would call my name a "come" and when I ran to them I got a treat! Imagine that, and then the other one would call me and I got a treat for running to Daddy too..
