I think I like “Town”

My Humum’s took me on a big adventure today. We went to somewhere called “Town”.

Off in the car we went, and when we got there, we were in a place with loads of other cars. I had never seen so many…ever.

I was a little unsure of the lift in the carpark, Humum Kate gave me some yummy treats, which helped a lot and a realises it was not too scary.

There were so many new smells, noises and things around. I had never seen a pram or trolly before and the traffic was very loud.

Next we went to my Humum’s Hairdresser, as she has been really looking forward to meeting me. I was even allowed in, so I thought I better behave, which I did. They all loved me.

I think I liked “Town”, but there were some scary moments too.

I’ve had a hair cut!

My Humum Kate took me to a place called The Groomers today. (Tracy Rose Groomers, Clapham)

It was brilliant, they played loads of games with me, feed me lots of treats and we played with toys too.

While all this was going on they kept turning on different things. One blew air out and I really liked that one as I seemed to get lots more treats when it came on. Another made a buzzing sound and everytime it when near my feet I got more treats.

My Humum said my feet look much tidier and I also had some of my puppy fluff hand striped out too. I have also lost a bit of hair from my top knot too.

I am going back next week for the 2nd of 3 introductory puppy sessions. I am very happy about that, so I can play and get more treats.

Hydro,Cheese and Film Star

Today I went paddling again. My Humum’s said it will help get my hip stronger.

I really like going to hydrotherapy as I get fed cheese. 😁

I have also been to my 1st agility show over Easter as both my sisters Roxy and Gem were competing. I’m not old enough yet to start proper agility training but I can do some nice waits, tunnels and loopy turns.

My Humum Kate has also finally finished filming our online puppy course and this week published it. She said I was a very good boy for starring in all the films. Check me out β­πŸ•β­

I’VE BEEN PADDLING

I have been on a brilliant adventure today. To help me with my loose hips, my Humums said I should go to something called “Hydrotherapy”. That is a posh word for paddling on a treadmill.πŸ˜‚

I trotted off well with the hydrotherapist and my Humums were pleasantly surprised, as I can be a bit shy with new people, but I liked Shelby 😁.

I was very wiggly when they tried to measure my muscles in my back legs..no surprise there, I love wiggling. πŸ˜‚

I was a little nervous of the treadmill as it made some strange noises when it filled up with water and then started moving, but Shelby helped me. I quickly learnt that the sides of the treadmill didn’t move 🀣.

Shelby and all at the vets fell in love with me❀ and she said I did ok for my first session, considering my Humums couldn’t go in with me. I did zoomies at the end 🀣🀣🀣

I am hoping to have some more sessions as I think I will be more relaxed in there next time and they can get working on building up my muscles.

I am very tired now and dreaming of going paddling again next week.

Poorly Puppy

My Humum’s have been noticing that I don’t always put the full weight through my back left leg, so they took me to The Doggy Doctors. The Doggy Doctor said she agreed with my Mum’s and that they needed to have a closer look to see what was going on, so I went in for some x rays today.

They said my knees and hocks were fine, but my left hip joint was a bit loose, and causing the ball to slip and slide about a bit. They keep talking about a person called “a physio” who will help build up the muscle mass around my joint to keep it tighter.

I didn’t feel very well after the visit to the Doggy Doctors and didn’t want to get out of Kate’s van she we got home. Kate carried me in and a have been sleeping lots every since.

It’s been a long day. πŸ˜₯

Let it Snow

I didn’t understand why my sisters Gem and Roxy were so excited about this white stuff falling from the sky. It was snow. I tried to catch it on my tongue.

It just kept falling from the sky. I soon realised that it was great fun.

I played and played and played with my sisters.

and played…

and played some more, even in the dark.

It was still there the following day. So Humum, Kate took me up the park to train, well that is what she calls it. I call it playing.

I would just like to say.

I LOVE THE SNOW

Work, Rest & Play

I have been a very busy puppy recently. My humum Kate, has been playing with me, live on Facebook. Well I call it playing, Kate calls it training.

I have also been playing on my walks and discovered big sandy play areas. I loved running around in them. Kate said when we get out of Lockdown then maybe we could go somewhere called ‘a beach’ . She thinks I will like the beach

I have also had a lovely walk with another puppy spaniel. I really enjoyed running around with her.

All this working and playing, means I like to sleep snuggled on the sofa.

Happy Half Birthday

Apparently today is my 6 month Birthday. We went out for a lovely walk with my sisters and my friend Millie and Oscar. I hadn’t seen them for ages.

I had a a lovely time running around with my friends. My Humum Kate said she wanted some nice pictures of me on my Half Birthday.

I went for the cute, puppy look to start with.

Mr Skip and his cute puppy look.

Then I decided I would try the very noble Mr Skip look. I think I pulled it off.🀣

Mr Skip the posser.

When I got home I was very tired and decided I would see what it was like sleeping on the arm of the settee.

Mr Skip, I can sleep anywhere.

Christmas and my Naming Day

I loved Christmas, lots of new toys and a very tasty Christmas dinner.

My HuMum Kate has told me today, that I have a very posh Kennel Club name. Apparently if you ever want to compete in any of the Kennel Club sports like agility or Flyball and you don’t have pedigree papers, then your HuMum gets to pick a name for you and you get put on the Activities Register.

Well my Kennel Club name is……wait for it…..

Play, Recall and Sniffing

This morning I went to work with my Humum Kate. I did some playing, (Kate calls it training.) I played at staying close to her and then we played with my favourite tuggy toy.

I also got to play with the lovely Ella and Jack. Jack was so fast I couldn’t catch him, but it was great fun trying. Everytime I went back to Kate, I got a scrummy treat. I think she calls this a recall. I call it “awesome fun”.

This afternoon I got to do some more playing at ” awesome fun ” when I went out for a walk with my sisters Roxy and Gem. I really enjoyed “Spanieling ” in the long grass.

Humum Kate has also started to play some scentwork games with me too, which I really love πŸ’˜
