New Clothes -- 28-May-2008

July 20th 2008 7:09 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Mom got Pippi and I some matching denim shirts. Mine is just a little bit too big, but Mom thinks I may grow into it still. Don't know why she thinks I should be bigger than 4 lbs. -- I don't think Pippi liked her shirt. She worked for 10 minutes trying to get it off. Mom finally helped her, then she started trying to get mine off, too. I don't mind mine though. I think it feels good with this fan going in here! Hopefully soon Mom can get pictures of me in my new duds and post them here.

 

New Doggles -- 10-June-2008

Mom got me some doggle tonight. She put them on me and I wasn't too sure about them. She said they would keep the sun and the camera flash out of my eyes. Then Pippi, my Min Pin sister, came over and started trying to chew on the doggles ... while I was wearing them! Mom helped me get them off, and then she put them on Pippi. She had them off in under two second and was chewing on them. Well, Mom had to chase Pippi around to get them back. Then she put Pippi in another room and put them back on me so she could snap a few pictures. Still not totally sure about them, but I don't think they will be too bad ... if Pippi will stop chewing on them while I'm wearing them.

 

Sun Porch -- 18-June-2008

Mom has been letting Pippi and I play out on the sun porch lately. It's nice and long so we can run back and forth and really get going! Mom says I get very bouncy and just hop and pounce my way across the room. Pippi and I chase each other and get to look out the door and watch everyone going by from there. Pip is getting pretty good at stealing the cut flowers from the vase Mom sets out there. I really like spending time out there.

 

Started Puppy Education Class -- 21-June-2008

I went to my first Puppy Education class today. Not sure why Mom signed me up for that. I think I've been doing a pretty good job being a puppy. I was a bit nervous and trembled a lot in class. I did get brave and stepped away from Mom enough to sniff a couple of other dogs and some shoes. I wanted to go over and check out a Doberman on the other side of the room. She looks like Pippi only bigger. This Great Dane puppy kept coming out to meet though before I could get there and I just wasn't too sure about that. So I turned around and went back to Mom. Speaking of Mom, she was trying to get my attention in class. Even tried to temp me with treats. Now I like treats at home, but what was she thinking there? I had to keep my eye on that lot. I couldn't look away, even for a treat. We'll have to see how this goes.

 

New Mirror -- 19-July-2008

Mom came home with a thing called a mirror. I was not sure what to think of it at first. It took me a bit to decide to go closer and check it out. As I got closer I saw there was another dog in there! I growled and snapped at it, and it did the same to me, but had no voice. I'm still not 100% sure about that thing, but do enjoy getting ready to pounce at the other dog. We've come to an understanding. I won't go into it's mirror and it won't come into my room.

 

Long Hike 27-July-2008

We have a perfectly lovely park near the house where we can walk, but for some reason Mom decided to go somewhere else to walk today. She gathered up a ton of stuff and took it to the car. Then she took Pip and I to the car. Can you believe she didn't put us in the front seat. She put us in the back. How does she think I am going to see out from back there. I know she had a little basket fixed up for me, but I couldn't see out the front. Luckily we didn't go very far. It was a pretty place for a walk. We had to walk up hill for the first part of it. I stayed right with Mom most of the way. I usually do. Pip likes to run out in front. Sometimes I go up and walk with her, but most of the time I stay with Mom. Pip and Mom are so out of shape. They were both huffing and puffing, but not me. I didn't start to pant until we were coming back down the hill. I sure was glad Mom brought some water for all of us. Took Pip and I a bit to figure out that water bottle thing. Well, Mom ended up carrying Pip back part of the way. She did that for a bit and then put Pip down. Wasn't long before Pip decided she had had enough. She sat down and wasn't going anywhere. Well, Mom picked Pip up again. Wasn't long before I was starting to feel a little tired, too. So I told Mom. She put Pip down and we all rested for a bit. Then we walked just a bit further and there was the car again. Pip and I slept most of the way home. Once we got there Mom slept with us. Whew! That wore us all out!

 

Shorter Walk -- 3-Aug-2008

We got to go for a good walk today. This time we went to the park near the house. We went to the duck pond first and Mom fed the ducks. The ducks can have that old bread. I thought the duck poo was much tastier. Mom kept trying to get me not to eat it. She stepped in some trying to keep me away from it. Tee hee hee. After we finished feeding the duck we walked back over to the main section of the park. Mom keeps our leash short when we are near the street, but once the path moves in some or we cut across the grass she lets us have all the leash we want - if no other people are dogs are around to bother. I just love that. Pip goes wild and I run circles around Mom. We had a good walk - not too far this time. Mom was still wish it were cooler weather. Maybe by then I will have her and Pip in better shape. :)

 

Puppy Education Graduation -- 9-Aug-2008

I made it. I graduated from my puppy education class. We started off by playing a game where the first one says what they would do at the park, then the next one has to do that and add something, and so on, with the list getting longer and longer. I got to start and my first thing was to go and hide. (Tee hee hee) Miss Marti (the trainer) said I could pick that as mine. So all the other dogs had to hide each time it was their turn. The next dog added sit. I can do that. Then lay down was added. Once I got a blanket to lay on I could do that one. (That floor is cold there.) There were only three of us in class today so it was back to me. I added a high five. I am great at those! Then a sit up and beg was added. I had a little trouble with that. I tend to stand up and dance rather than sit and beg. The next dog was going to add a roll over. Luckily she didn't feel like doing that today after all. If she had I would have been out. I don't do roll over! Not even close! I won't even lay on my side and if Mom tries to hold me on my back in her arms I go crazy and panic!! So I was glad when that dog did sneaky, sneaky instead. With a little help from Mom to hold my butt down I did it. I added dancing in a circle. The other dogs had a little trouble with that one, but they did pretty well. We decided to end the game there. And luckily with all that sitting and laying down on each turn that counted for our test. We didn't have to go out in the store at busy spots and do that like Pip did when she was in class. Next we had to go meet three dogs and three people. We found one dog right away and it went OK. I didn't snarl. We lasted our three seconds and were on our way to find another. There just weren't any others in the store at the moment so we met the other two from class. It went OK, too. Again, no snarling or snipping at anyone. Then Mom picked me up in her arms and we went to meet three people. She cheated me on that one. The first group she walked up to had four people, and the second group had two. So I really met seven people in all. I survived though, but I'm going to have to help Mom learn how to count. Next we had to do "leave it" while walking past some treats on the floor. I don't have any trouble with that one. I'm too busy watching everything around me to notice what's been left on the floor. Then we did come when called. For that Miss Marti holds my leash while Mom runs to the other end of the aisle and then Miss Marti lets go when Mom calls me. We're supposed to sit at the end - right in front of Mom. Well, I ran to her as fast as I could - had to get back to her where I was safe - but instead of sitting right in front of her I sat under her. Safer there you know. Then we had to loose leash walk back to the training room. Piece of cake! Pippi is always telling me she is going to have to show me how to do things. Well, loose leash walking is one I will have to show her! She tends to pull a LOT. That was pretty much it. So I passed. Yeah! Now I'm off to take a nap. Class always wears me out.

 

Early Morning Walk -- 20-Sept-2008

Pippi and I woke Mom up early ... because we forgot it was Saturday and that she wanted to sleep late. At least that is the story we are sticking with. Luckily she didn't mind this time and got up and got us dressed (didn't know what she was thinking). By 6:30 AM we were all walking out the door. The air was nice and cool and I was glad I had that silly bumble bee shirt on. It felt good, but not as big as it used to be. Wonder why Mom shrunk it. Mom mixed up our walk today. She went down streets we don't usually go down and took different paths in the park. She took us on a longer walk than usual, too. We ran into our neighbor dogs, then half way around the block we ran into them again. The cool morning walk was kind of nice. And getting Mom up early was fun. Tee hee hee.

 

Smoky Mountain Critter Fest -- 21-Sept-2008

Mom took Pippi and I to the Smoky Mountain Critter fest today. I did much better than last time. I didn't hide behind Mom and tremble the whole time. I even stretched out and checked out some other dogs, I only curled my lip once when a big dog was checking me out, and I let people ... even kids ... pet me. I did tremble once when two kids were getting a little to close in my face for comfort. That was it though. Pippi, as usual, loved the whole thing. The more the merrier for her. Personally I think Mom should have entered me in the cutest pet and the fastest licker contest. For the latter Mom would have had to put peanut butter on her nose and see if I could lick it off before all the other dogs got it off their ower's nose. BOL! I love to lick Mom's face so that would have been a bonus. We didn't get to see it, but heard a little of the loudest bark or howl contest. I think I may be glad we were not too close for that one. Then again who knows. I might just have joined in. I'm glad Mom took us, but boy were we both pooped when we got home!
