Holly's Life and Times

May 31st Graduation Day

I graduated from my basic obedience course today. Dad says that I did very well, especially for a five month old puppy. I met a neat Goldendoodle friend at the obedience course. Her name is Pasha and she is eleven months old. When we first started the course eight weeks ago, Pasha was a LOT bigger than I was and I was a little frightened of her. However, I have grown quite a bit in the last eight weeks and I am closer to Pasha's size now. Dad has invited Pasha and her family to our house so we can play together. I hope she will be able to visit us.

I learned a lot in obedience school. I am very good at some commands especially heel and sit. I do very well with the come command when I am on the long lead but, not well at all off lead. I still have to work on the down and stay commands.

Dad takes me to Cruisin' Grand every Friday evening. This is a big street fair with old time cars, bands and lots and lots of people. I behave very well and don't get nervous at all when there are crowds of people around.

I like Cruisin' Grand because I get a lot of attention. Loads of people want to come up and pet me and ask my dad what kind of dog I am. People even stop their cars to remark about me. Its lots of fun and I am very polite when I greet people. I no longer jump and just sit there to be petted and maybe get a chance to lick their hands. dad is very proud when people say that they can't believe I am only five months old.


I am four and a half months old

I am four and a half months old now and I weigh about 45 pounds. My parents tell me that I am going to be a big girl because my paws are really large.

I just love everyone and all dogs. I especiallylike little kids and small dogs.

I have just about completed basic obedience and my daddy is very proud of me.

Everywhere daddy and I go, people stop him and ask what kind of a dog I am. I guess that I a really a pretty gal.

I have suddenly become a good watchdog and will bark pretty loud if any strangers are in our yard. I have developed quite a deep bark. Daddy thinks this is neat since we still have a "Security Dog" sign on our fence left over from daddy's previous dog, a German Shepherd. Of course, I would never be a guard dog but, if someone comes near the house, they will hear me and won't know that I am a lover, not a fighter.


I am four months old today...

I am four months old and I weigh well over 30 pounds. We won't know just how much I weigh until I go to the doggie doctor next Tuesday for my final shot which will be rabies.

I attended obedience class last Saturday and did very well. I got a new collar to wear while I am being trained. It is a Martingale Training Collar by Top Paw. The instructor recommended this type of collar. It is not the spike type collar which I certainly don't need. However, neither is it a choke collar. It is comfortable and I am learning my commands while wearing it.

There was another Goldendoodle at the class and she was a big ten-month old girl. I guess that I will grow that big in time. She was nice but, I picked out a Puggle as my best friend in class. The Puggle is half Pug and half Beagle. We really had a lot of fun together.

Tomorrow I will go to class again in the morning and then to the big Doodle Romp Around the World at the Huntington Beach Dog Park. My parents will introduce me to other Doodles and their owners. They are looking forward to showing me off.

I guess I am a very pretty girl because everywhere I go, people make a fuss over me. Dad has been taking me to "Cruising Grand" in Escondido on Friday nights. This is a big car show and there are lots of people and lots of noise from car engines and lots of music from D.J.'s playing songs. I am not frightened and really like it because I know the secret. All these people are really not coming there to see the cars and listen to the music; they are coming to see and to pet me and I love it.
