On the weekend, I got to meet up with 2 of my brothers, Alfie & Bertie.
Alfie’s got the same mum as me, but Bertie was ACTUALLY in my litter. We used to roll all over each other fighting for the milk. When my human told me we were going to see him, my wagger just wouldn’t stop. I hadn’t seen him since the day I met my new human and couldn’t wait to find out all about his new home and how he’s getting on training his humans.
Alfie came along because he’s ”been there and done that” and always has special tricks up his tri-coloured socks to teach us puppies. I couldn’t wait for Bertie to see what a cool big brother we have.
I arrived first and was made to wait in the car until the others arrived. I wanted to play but my human said I had to save all of my energy for later.
Once the boys had arrived and we’d all had a good run around to determine who was fastest, Alfie shouted to us puppies to follow him. He said he could smell some stinky water and he just HAD to see if either of us were proper dogs yet, or if we were still babies.
I have to be honest, I thought Bertie was going to show me up here because it looked like he was going to jump in the water too … but he’s just as ‘ready’ as me to go in there. It made me feel better because we both WANT to go in the water but neither of us is brave enough to just jump in. Bertie ate some mud while we were thinking about it and he looked like he was striking a thoughtful pose, so I copied him, hoping that the mud would give me some braveness.
While we were munching on the mud and having a think about the water, Alfie said he had something to show us …
Then Alfie bought us something … A HUGE STICK … WOW, what a cool brother …
Being a professional toy stealer myself, I jumped over the water, careful not to slip and grabbed the stick … Bertie stayed behind to grab the other end.
But Alfie said that we’re stupid puppies. He’s not showing us a stick. He’s pretty sure that we’ve seen plenty of those before … he was just clearing the way for …. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH, BERTIE!!!! …. RUUUUUUN …
And then I saw a flying Entlebucher.
Our brother is VERY VERY cool, but he is also a bit of a show off.
We got the last laugh, because after that, none of the other dogs wanted to sniff Alfie … he stank !!
It was a great day and good fun hanging out with my brothers. We spent a lot of time running around and it was pawsome to see Bertie again.
On the way home, I felt a little bit muddy in the car. I’m sure you other puppies know this one. First you look up, then there’s a funny taste and then … UH OH …
But it’s ok, although I ate so much mud that I was sick … I was very thoughtful and instead of sicking ALL OVER the car, I just did it right on my humans coat.
