2012 … It’s been a BIG year for me, my first one.
It started like this. On 30th March 2012 I was born. The first B pup in the whole of our Kingdom.
After a few weeks, we were all given our humans. My girl and man came to visit me when I was 4 weeks old, which looked like this.
It was my human’s birthday weekend and she said it was the BEST birthday she’d ever had. Everyone was asking her what she was doing and she told them ”I’m going to meet my puppy”.
At 8 weeks, then the end of May, I went to my humans. It was a bit scary at first and I spent most of my first day like this.
After a while, I realised that the people were really nice, that I liked them A LOT. It wasn’t going to be bad at all.
We’ve actually had A LOT of fun together.
I started school and have done some training. All the way from Puppy Play Group to Level 2 Obedience. This year I get to start Agility and I’m going to school with my big brother Alfie. I can’t wait, I’m so excited to be in class with him, the FASTEST Entlebucher in the UK. I can’t wait to show him off to all my friends. I’m going to introduce him to Ozzy, because Ozzy sniffs my bum WAY too much and maybe Alfie will have a word with him. That’s what big brothers are for, right? Ozzy will have to concentrate on Cara from now on, but Cara will probably like Alfie too. *wag wag wag*
I’m also starting my Level 3 Obedience, which is when I get to work off lead. I’ve learnt to play up in the class but still pass my test. My human says I’m just like her.
Christmas was PAWSOME!!
Alfie had told me a few things, he said it was fun and the best bit was that humans didn’t go to work for a while, which meant I had two people to play with ALL DAY.
HE didn’t tell me about the Santa Paws (not a burglar)
He didn’t tell me about the reindeer poo (tastes good!!)
He didn’t tell me there’d be a tree in my house. (with BALLS on)
He didn’t tell me I’d get an AMAZING roast dinner on Christmas Day (with sausage and bacon and beef and gammon and turkey and pigs … wearing blankets)
He didn’t tell me that Sprout Farts can clear a whole room (for quick treat stealing)
He didn’t tell me that the humans would drink funny drinks (and love me even more than usual)
I’m glad he kept it all as a suprise. I’ve been giddy from all the fun, sometimes I just had to stand in the middle of the room and BARK because I was so happy.
When the year ended, my humans took me on a special midnight walk. We went on top of a big hill that looked right out over London. There were lots of people walking with us. We got to the top and we all stopped and waited. Then all the humans were shouting. 10 – 9 – 8 – 7 …
I got excited at this point and decided to join them … 3 Roooooooooo, 2 Roooooooooo, 1 ROOOOOOOOOOOOO ROO ROOO ROOO ROOOOOOO. Everyone liked my roo’ing and I didn’t get told to quiet once.
This is me and my human, celebrating the New Year together. She said it was hard to get a photo with fireworks, Bella & herself, because the person with the camera was drunk.
I don’t know what 2013 will bring.
My human says it’s an important year for me. I have to have lots of tests to see if one day, I’ll be able to have puppies of my own, that’s a long way off though. She just wants me to have fun for now.
Talking of puppies. My friend Shadow had her puppies and they’re now almost ready to go to their new humans. They have been live on a website since they were a day old. This is the last week that they’re on the camera, and I have to say, they’re looking pawsome. I can’t wait to meet them and tell them all the secrets to training a human.
You can catch their last few days with their mum here
They’re really fun to watch at this age and full of mischief.
And you can read all about their last week with their mum here, on my other friend Alfie’s blog.
It’s a new year and the puppies will soon have new homes.
Every night this year, I’ve been wishing on a star (Sirius, the Dog Star of course) … here are my wishes for the new puppies
I wish you not to be scared when you leave your home.
I wish you to have safe and happy journeys to your new home.
I wish you LOVE and CUDDLES like you’ve never had before.
I wish you patient humans, who understand that you are young and will make mistakes.
But most of all, I wish you sausages.
LOTS AND LOTS OF SAUSAGES.
