Arrival Story: A note from Mom-My hubby fell in love with Kirra's daddy the first time he seen him at a dog show. He wanted to get a Corgi in the future. We just didn't know it would be so soon. Around the same time is when Kirra was born.
Mommy is friends with a Corgi breeder. I was an unplanned puppy. I had 4 siblings, 2 died within 48 hours. My fur mom stopped producing milk at 2 weeks. We were fed by hand until we were able to start eating on our own. We were taken to the dogter because my sisters were not doing good. It was found that their skulls had not closed, and they had water on their brains. They had to have medicine to make them better. Mommy's friend asked if she could go ahead and take me because I was fine, and was playing to rough with my sisters. So I went to my furever home at 4 weeks old(5/15/09).
Tuesday was the last night of my puppy classes. Every puppy showed up. We worked on every thing that we had been learning. We all did so good.
Every one of the puppies in the class graduated. I graduated top of my class. I was even the only one to earn the AKC's S.T.A.R Puppy award. Can't wait till mom sends off for the award. I heard it's a big shinny medal.
I showed off my tricks in Sugar's class that she taught, which was the class after mine. I did, shake(right paw), Hi-Five(left paw) , and Roll Over. Boy was everyone shocked a 3 and 1/2 month old puppy could do that.
So now it's practice, practice, practice until my next class, which starts in October.
Mom Forgot to make my entry public. Sorry it's late. Blame the momma person.
My fifth night of my puppy classes. Everypup was there this time. As always we worked on our sits and downs. We worked on stand again, and mom used the towel again to wipe my feet off. I tried to eat the towel once. We did our puppy play time, but this time our humans were asked to call us by our name. If we looked at them or even came to them, we were given a jackpot of goodies. Mom had to try a few times before I knew she was talking to me. I was just having to much fun. That is until the Golden sat on me. The teacher had to make her leave me alone because she was to big for me to get up. After playing we did our leave it's, and we all did great. Next we worked on walking nicely around the room on a loose leash. Every time I pulled, mom stopped, and starting walking in a different direction. What's this all about? Anywho, as we were all walking around a big loud whistle blew. The teacher said that it was part of the S.T.A.R puppy test. All of us pups passed, but you should have seen those humans. They all stopped suddenly and looked at the teacher...BOL!! Then next thing we worked on was settle. That Flat Coated was full of energy. We did our recalls next. Every puppy did so wonderful. The next thing we did was, our leash was handed to the teacher and our humans walked away from us. Can you believe my mom left out of the room.... No worries, I didn't care. She came back very shortly. She said I was a very very good girl. Next we got to do the jump again. WEEEE!!! I fly over that thing. It's so fun!!! We did something mom calls a wobble board next. At first I didn't want to, but once I got the hang of it, it was fun to. OMD the next thing was a tunnel. I had never seen one of these before. Mom throw some treats in it, then went to the other end and called me with more treats. It was pretty cool. I kept going back in it on my own thinking that there were more treats in it. BOL!! At the end of class the teacher asked and answered questions. She told mom that so far I am the only puppy in this class that could pass the S.T.A.R puppy test. I'm So Happy!!!! The only reason the others won't pass yet is because some of them missed the classes. They can make up the classes and still pass. Yay!!
Tonight was my fourth puppy class. There were only 3 pups in the class tonight. I think mom said some of the pups humans were not feeling good. Of course the Cocker was not there because of what happened last week. So it was just Lola a Brussels Griffon, Cinder a flat coated retriever, and me. We worked on all our usual stuff, sit, down, leave it. We did pass the puppy again. That's were we are passed to the next person to examine us. Mom is so happy that I am a very calm puppy. The Retriever was wild and crazy. We did our puppy playtime. No Golden to sit on me this time. I chased the FCR all around, then went to play with the Brussels. We had lots of fun. Next mom did something I never heard of before. She asked me to sit beside her, told me stay, showed me a hand signal, and went in front of me. Wait ma, where you going? I popped up. We did it a few more times and I kinda understood. I'm not sure about this one yet. The nerve of her. She asked for a down, stay, signal, and went in front. I stayed till she came back to my side. There's no telling what she may have found so I had to go check and see if she had anything for me. Ma says I gotta work really hard on these. We did our stands and while we were standing we had to be groomed. Mom just used a dry towel and ran it down my back and along my feet. Next week mom hopes to set a table up first, the floor was hard on her knees. Next we were introduced to a bar jump. Like they use in agility. Oh boy, that was fun. I got to jump over the bar and get lots of treats each time I did it. After we had fun jumping bars, we all did our recalls. I did it perfect. I even sat in front of mom when I got to her. YAY ME ! ! ! Two more classes left. I might become an AKC S.T.A.R puppy, as long as mom remembers to bring my poop baggies. BOL! Oh, I learned how to shake(give paw). I am sooo smart.... heeheehee
