Arrival Story:
My guardians did a whole lot of research into suitable companion breeds for urban apartment life and found the Coton De Tulear. The shallow sides of them liked the breed's good looks and rarity. The intelligent side of them liked that they are smaller, shed less and are less likely to create allergic reactions, and generally have a very sweet and even temperament. They decided to get a Coton puppy from Jomaran's Kennels, and picked me up on May 1st, 2008. The rest, as they say, is history.

Bio:
I'm from some pretty hi-falutin' lineage - my dad is Jomaran's Sweet William and my mom is Jomaran's Diamond in the Rough. They say I'm a bundle of joy with a pedigree.

hallo und herzlich wilkommen!

sorry, my master's german courses are starting to sink in.

I haven't been back to write for a while - and partially because I've been just too darn busy! (and because I don't know how to turn the computer on)

part of that busy has been two obedience classes and two agility classes over the past year.. there's a heck of a lot to learn. I've also picked up another few tricks under my sleeve. We'll see if we can get them up here via a youtube video my master has been promising to direct. (but as of yet has not)

Mom says she would like me to go to another obedience class, but Dad would like to find the right one. Something to do with me being a little protective and reactive around other dogs in the apartment building, who knows. I say I have to make it known that the building belongs to me and you better watch your back!

In between classes I've been to the doggy parks of the city a couple hundred times.. free time to sniff and lots of room... next to freeze dried liver it's my favorite thing!

I also overheard a lot of talk about puppies..and even went for a trip to visit some this summer. I can't see what all the fuss is about. They're barely mobile, they smell funny, and they are obviously very indescriminately promiscuous for human attention. I hope Mom and Dad aren't planning to bring one of those things home.....

hello all - thanks for checking in on boo's blog.

boo is doing really well with his training so far - his leash manners have improved considerably and he's learned a number of obedience commands and been able to demonstrate them in different places under distraction.

with his improved manners he gets a little more freedom in the apartment and the places we travel to for a little longer. We can feel comfortable doing that knowing he finally 'gets' the whole potty training philosophy. I hear that coming into sexual maturity can undo potty training so he's still very much supervised at all times when he's loose.

some days at puppy kindergarten there's just TOO much distraction for much to get accomplished, but we're working on that. strange dogs, or a lot of novel noises and new smells can induce puppy ADD still, but I believe with a little maturity and a lot more work and patience things will work themselves out.

in the meantime, he gets lots of puppy socialization. just lately he's met an airedale terrier, a schnauzer, a whippet, a greyhound, and just this morning a 12 wk old Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy. It's all new and exciting and fun!

 

long weekends = good

that's the farthest I've ever traveled in a vehicle. 2.5 hours!

but me, I'm good in the vehicles. no motion sickness or zaniness from me. I am a bit of a suck though, and like to be in someone's lap on the bumpy parts. Darn Saskatchewan roads.

and new things! lots of them! i met 4 of what the humans called 'cats'. Maybe that's the word for a funny lookin' breed of dog? In any case, I approached them just the same as I would dogs, tail wagging happily and going to check the front and back end to get all their vital details. You can see a video of me meeting the 'cat' called Snowflake here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SOrkBsW6P8

I also met a big golden dog named Lacey. We couldn't quite work the mechanics of playing together, though. I would signal my interest in a play engagement, and she would drop into a play bow in front of me and utter an excited woof, at which point I saw I fit between her two paws, and her head is roughly as big as I am. At the sound and site of that first wuffff, my interest waned and I headed for cover. I give her points for the attempt, though. We did go for a walk together and that was much more my speed. Lacey also protected me from that grumpy cat Tia, which I appreciated.

I also learned this weekend that I like rainy days. Much to Joanne and Peter's chagrin I found out sitting in mud puddles and doddling in wet clay and mud are great, and as a bonus, elicit the funniest human sounds and reactions. I'll endure a bath and towel dry any day to play in the rain again.
