Training

Went to my (6th) training class tonight again. I met some more new friends and I got very excited. I think I did quite well at the 'stay', but I need to work at 'down' and 'stand'. I haven't done 'stand' very much before. Daddy was told to use hand signals as well as words and eventually we will be moving on to hand signals only - help!

Gnashers

I'm losing my teeth like there's no tomorrow. I lost 6 - correction, 7! - in the last 3 days and those are the ones that have been found. Daddy is very pleased because he found one of the needle sharp ones in my bed. So he's given me a chew to hurry the other ones up!

My sister

While staying with Daisy for a few days, I met up with my sister Evie for the first time since I moved. I had a great time playing with her and other dogs on Snelsmore Common as you can see.

Lake District for Dogs

Here is an interesting website: Lake District for Dogs which is hosted by Eric Robson and his dog Raq. We have added some of our walks to their walking page. They also appear here on everytrail. Clever stuff; I hope you are impressed - but Daddy does all the work, I have to twiddle my toes (or more likely chew something I shouldn't!).

The Lake District is fabulous (part 1)

Daddy said I would enjoy it and I did! I have learned to swim and Daddy can't keep me out of the water. I climbed three peaks - Beacon Fell (twice), Brockbarrow and Lingmoor and I walked from Skelwith Bridge to Elterwater and back. I could have done a lot more but apparently this would be bad for my joints and bones at my age. (The only downside is the number of ticks I got - yuck!) I can't wait to go back again. As soon as I arrived home, I jumped into the pond!

Here are some pictures of my exploits.

5th lesson

Had my fifth lesson last night. We did 'watch', 'sit', 'down', walking and staying to 'heel' and some grooming and playing. Unfortunately, I'll miss the next two lessons but I am looking forward to my holidays in the Lakes. I don't quite know what's in store but Daddy says I'll love it.
