Sorry I don't get on here much, maybe when AJ gets the laptop that will work in the garden I may, but then again I have balls out there and agility equipment and after my walks and playing and obedience and agility and heel work to music club, I just like to catch a few zz's hopefully a few rays as well.
AJ is very proud of me, she misses Hooch terribly but loves her little girl so much,. I see her kiss his photo good night so when she said Hooch to mummy I went and licked the photo, AJ thought it so cute she gave me a biscuit, so now I kiss him all the time, when we all end up at rainbow bridge I think I'll owe him some biscuits.
AJ says she was lucky to have such a great dog as Hooch from The Blue Cross and she is lucky again to have me from Dog Trust, we share a great sense of adventure.
So my life so far, well I started obedience as a Pup, and was really good at it if I say so myself, I made it up to the third class, but struggled a bit with staying in a down with the trainer in the room when all the owners left their dogs, I was either the ring leader or easily tempted when someone else broke their stay. Well I wanted to play and AJ found it quite funny really I know.
But then I turned one and I decided to behave and make it into class four, one to do exciting stuff like scent descrimination and send aways, two causemy fav dog Poppy was in that class.
A few weeks into 4 they decided to recreate class 5 and arg Poppy was so good she was sure to go up, I was the class rookie in 4 so shouldn't have been in the running, but determined to stay with Poppy, I worked like a trojan and made the grade. Aj thought with less than a month in 4 I would struggle, but I find all the new excercises exciting. Infact it's always Aj who go's wrong and lets the team down. Same with agility, she really needs to practise more.
In agility I have all my starter rossettes and I'm in the next class, I have lots to learn, well AJ does to catch up with me.
Heel work to music is great fun once a month and even Daddy said I'm pretty good wen he came to wtach last time.
I love to play with dogs, so AJ says it's a minor mirrcle that I focus on my work time with so many friends around, but I love training, and Aj arranges regular meets with my class buddies where we just have a laugh, so I get the best of both worlds.
I love the lakes and swimming, I adore the forest and sniffing, and I like walking around on the lead going where ever AJ has to go , I even don't mind being left, caus that's food stuffed kong time, but Aj doesn't leave me often caus she misses me to much. I'm a good girl Aj says I make her proud, and I'm just having fun, so life's good woofers.
Hope you are all as great

On the way home we stopped at Montisfont and I chased Daddy as fast as my little legs could carry me, my life of outdoor adventures had officially started.
Since then I've explored and explored, and I love it, when I couldn't go to far we too picnic and a rug and just listened to the sounds and sniffed the smells and watched the forest life go by, or I chilled in my garden under the gazebo.
Then there was puppy classes, a big room with lots of puppies, yeh great concept !!! I've gone through Puppy class now, and also through class two. So I am a class three student, and we get left in a down stay altogether while are owners take to the stage behind the curtain so we can't see them. It's tempting just just have a free for all, and sometimes so tempting that we actually do, but most of the time we behave.
Classes are fun, we do retrieve and heel work and turns and Downs and sits and stays and waits and finishes and all sorts, and get laods of food, plus I have made loads of puppy friends at class, that I meet in the forest.
We also do puppy agility together, oH I love tunnels !!!
I also do search, for my owners in the forest, or for a hanky they hide in the undergrowth, I take them the hanky and they swap it for a treat, great deal.
Oh and I have a job, I bring the mail into the dinning room each morning, one letter at a time, I'm so proud of my job.
I start doggie dancing next year as well, I already know quite a few moves, but putting them together that's the thing, and I start proper agility in May.
What else, well I love my toys, I'm still not allowed on the sofa in the front room and I'm not allowed human food, apart from sometimes little bits of cheese or sausage or chicken at training class.
Oh and I have a new send away mat for the Xmas season, it's very bright . I run to my xmas mat in the hall, and do my DOWN on command while aj gets my breakfast ready, I watch containing my excitement caus I'm not allowed to jump around, and try to steal extra out the bag (shame that was such a neat game).
So that's me, I wish you all lots of nice long walks that will get your tails wagging, this plannet needs more paw prints and we dogs are up for the job is what I say.
Big licks to you all
and a big hug to Hooch, please look after me big brother, will you be my guardian angel please !!! I really want to play with you !!
