MAKING FRIENDS AT PUPPY SCHOOL

Hey Jet here! Last night was my first time at puppy school and it was so much fun. Last night I saw Ros grabbing my lead & a bag of treats so I came over to investigate what she was doing.  She told me we were about to go out some where very fun together so off we went and hopped into the car.    
 
On the way to puppy school. This was only my second car trip and if I do say myself I coped very well. After a while we had arrived and after Ros had grabbed all the essentials out of the car we headed inside to begin. I was the first one there as the instructor person said we had to be there 10 to 15 minutes early as they needed to talk to my human before class started about my needles. I think it was because i'm so cute that the instructor wanted to have me all to herself for a while to give me cuddles.  Soon though my class mates started to arrive; there were five of us all together. The other puppies were a German Shepherd also called Jet, Kelpie x Jack Russell , eight week old staffordshire bull terrier and a tiny french bulldog. There was meant to be a beagle doggie but he didn't come this time so hopefully I see him next week.   Well they had a little space just for us to play in but first the humans had to introduce us to everyone and tell the people what experiences we already had and what our human needed help with at home. Then at last we were allowed off leash to start making friends so I was let off and Ros told me I could go play. The first friend I made was the Kelpie X Jack Russell.
 As you can see we got on well straight away plus we had very similar playing styles and that made playing together even more fun. Then I heard some one calling out puppy puppy puppy so I went to see who it was. This is our teacher for our puppy school. She was very nice and gave our humans lots of pawesome tips on how to look after us and teach us really cool things.
As you can see I made myself right at home and I was given a nice back scratch as well.  After playing for a little while we had to go back on our leads again for a little while so the humans could learn what they had to do. I was very good and came back almost straight away when Ros called me. I got heaps of treats for doing that so while the humans were asking all their questions I settled down for a rest so when we were allowed to play again I'd have heaps of energy.

Soon the instructor said we were all allowed off lead again so Ros told me to go play.  I went over to say hello to the little French Bull doggie. Unfortunately he was a bit scared of me and ran under the chairs in the room.

Hopefully he will be a bit braver next time and we will have a great play as he started coming out of his fur towards the end. I went in search of a new friend. He was the German Shepherd, also called Jet. We got on very well.
 
 

Then the instructor gave us all a toy to play with and we all had lots of fun playing with it. 
 
 
 
Well after playing for a little while longer our humans called us over as it was time to practise "sit". I was very good and sat as soon as Ros asked so I got lots of treats and good boys for doing such a great job. 
 
 
See what a clever boy I am already. Well after practising sit for a few minutes it was time to go home so we packed up and headed out to the car.  I was very tired and as soon I got into the car I fell to sleep dreaming of all that I had just learnt only waking up when we got home. I went to the toilet and then I went straight to my bed and slept in until the next morning.  I can't wait until I can go back again and meet up with all my new friends.  I really loved my puppy school adventure.       
  Good Night Everybody

JET TEN WEEKS & PUPPY SCHOOL STARTS TOMORROW

Hey! Milo & Jet here! Hi! Jet talking today! Today I turned exactly ten weeks old and I am getting very big already. Ros decided to weigh me today and we found out that I weigh exactly twelve kilos. Yikes! If this continues Ros says I'll be as big as a great dane soon. Anyway, at lunch time, Milo and I went outside for a run in the garden.
 Well after having fun playing chase I heard Ros calling my name so I went over to see what she wanted. She said that it was time for photos so I found a comfy piece of grass and the photo taking began. I must say that i'm already a pro at photo taking. I even have the cute head tilt down pat, quite an advanced skill according to Milo.      
   
 Aren't I so cute? After the photo taking was over we went back inside and Milo & I decided to play a pawesome game of bitey face.  
  
 
Ow, that's my ear!! 
 Milo: As you can see we had a pawesome game of bitey face. Jet is getting the hang of this game very quickly thanks to my pawesome teaching skills.  Jet here: Tomorrow night I start puppy school. I'm quite excited about it and I can't wait to make lots of new puppy friends tomorrow. Plus I'll been learning lots of new things like sit, down, come, stay and loose lead walking. I can't wait to tell you more about my first day at puppy school soon. Well bye now from Milo and Jet.

DAY AT THE RSPCA MILLION PAWS WALK PART 2

Hey, Milo here! Back with more of the fur friends that I met on my day out at the million paws walk.  After saying goodbye to the rare doggie we kept walking and soon ran into an Afghan Hound that was very nice and we had fun saying hello to each other.    
Isn't it a stunning doggie?! This is the first Afghan hound I had ever met so I was happy that he seemed to like me so much. Well after saying hello to the Afghan hound we continued on and we soon ran into another doggie to say hello to. She was an American Bulldog and had a very nice pink studded dog collar that looked great against her nice coat.      
  
After saying goodbye to her we went in search for another doggie to say hello to. Soon we crossed paws with a cute little border terrier doggie.
I had met lots of different doggies but had yet to meet another me until finally I spotted a black one of me coming towards us. His name was Wilbur and we both got very excited when we saw each other. He had a cute polkadot bow tie on that looked very striking against his black coat.             
We had fun saying hello to each other. Wilbur headed off to say hello to make more friends him. Only seconds after he left another black labrador appeared so he also came straight over to say hello to me.    
Hello! My name's Milo. What's yours? Hang on!!  Can I smell water?! Have you been swimming? Oh, I want to go swimming too. Where did you go?  After he told me where he went for a swim he continued on his way. Then I spotted two tiny doggies. In fact, they were so tiny that at first I thought they could have been rats. One was a tiny toy poodle who in fact won the smallest dog competition last year & the other was a cute little black Chihuahua called Ebony. To show you all just how tiny they were I sat next to the poodle so I can give you a sense of scale.  Ros was allowed to give them a cuddle and she could hold them each in only one of her hands. 
 Look how tiny they are. They didn't even make it up to my elbow. The little poodle was also wearing a very cute little outfit that apparently had to be especially made just for her as even the tiniest dog outfits were still much too large. Ros gave me lots of treats for sitting so quietly next to them as sometimes tiny doggies can be a little scared of us bigger dogs.  After saying goodbye to my new tiny friends we ran into a lovely old golden retriever that was very dressed up in a lovely pink outfit and pink toenails. Yes, pink toenails!        
    Well after saying hello and sniffing out her nails we continued on when we ran into a Japanese Spitz. He was wearing a very cute coat that looked great against his coat. 
Doesn't he have a lovely face?! Then Ros spotted a Shar Pei so she went over to take some photos. He was very interested in the camera which helped Ros get some good photos of him for my blog. 
 Doesn't he have a big chubby face?  After Ros had got her photos and I had deemed them good enough we continued on when suddenly we ran into a huge doggie. An eighteen month old merle great dane. He was huge. About twice my size but he seemed a little bit unsure so we didn't go over to say hello to him and just got photos from a distance. He had a lovely coat patten as you can see.  
 
 Isn't he handsome ?! Well after getting our photos of him we continued on and we soon ran into a cute little french bulldog so we said a nice hello to each other.
After continuing on we went for a bit of a walk around when Ros told me to look at something. It's not! Could it be?! Yes, it's a me! So far we had not seen another doggie that looked like me. The other doggie saw me to and came over to say hello.
  
 
 Well after saying hello she continued with her walking while I had found a new big friend to say hello to. He was the Alaskan malamute that won the biggest doggie comp last year. Isn't he very handsome? !  
Well after saying goodbye to him we ran into a cute little cavalier doggie so we did a very nice hello to each other.
Well we had been there for almost three hours and a lot of people were starting to think about going home but there were a few doggies around that were still meeting & greeting. Ros said it was now my time for photo taking  so we found a quieter spot for my photos. I was getting very tired by this stage so I had a tiny bit of trouble keeping awake for my photos.      
Must Stay Awake 
 Once Ros bought the treats out that woke me up quite a bit!  If I do say so myself I look very handsome in my photos. After my photo taking Ros took me back towards the beginning of the walk again. What was she up to? As we continued on I starting to get worried that she was going to make go around the walk again. Certainly she wouldn't be that cruel to me when I was just so tired! Would she? As we kept going we ran into the most adorable golden retriever puppy who was in training to become an     assistance dog so it was wearing its cute little coat with a learners sign on the back. Isn't she just so cute?!
 
 Well after saying goodbye to her we continued on and I finally discovered where Ros was taking me.  Yes, for a splash in the water!! Oh, thank you, Ros.
 
 
  
 I had so much fun splashing around in the water that I completely forgot how tired I was and almost took of doing zoomies but thankfully I remembered the lead just in time as I didn't think Ros would have liked being dragged behind me. It was the best ever reward for being so good when I met all those other doggies.  As even though I like treats I love water even more and it makes me feel very happy and excited. Other water doggies will understand. Well after splashing around for a while I finally had to be dragged out as it was really time to go home.  As soon as I got in the car I fell asleep ready to go home. I hope you have enjoyed meeting all my new friends as well and I have my paw's crossed that I will get to go again next year as well and make even more new friends.      
Goodnight everybody
