Flower Friday...somewhere

I heard it was Flower Friday AND Rosy's barkday, so I wanted to pawticipate this time. I went hunting in my yard for flowers, but all I found was grass and dirt.

Momma wasn't so happy about my search. Uh-oh. Happy furst barkday anyway, Rosy!!

Puppy class

My furst puppy class was Monday. I was pretty nervous about meeting all the other dogs, but they were SO nice! Momma said I was the best at hellos. I didn't growl at anyone, but I didn't cower and cry either. I just walked up and sniffed politely. WELL, don't tell Momma, but I think the difference is that I'm the only LADY in this class. Boys don't have as nice of manners!

 These are some of my classmates. There are six of us total, but one couldn't make that night's class and Momma didn't get a picture of Bruce. So here's Hachie the Pyr, Bentley the Golden, and Gunner the Miki. (His momma said that's a new breed that's a cross of a Yorkie, a Maltese, and something I don't remember.)

I won't deny it -- I was pretty bored in class a lot of the time. We spent a lot of time talking to the humans, and then worked a lot on Sit. Um, hello, I already Sit! I showed a few times how I had it nailed, then I was just bored. Momma said next class we'll cover more stuff that I don't know, so it'll be more interesting.

But I did find something interesting...

 That Hachie's pretty handsome, isn't he?

My very special blankie

I think Momma shared pictures of this extra-special blankie earlier. It was a gift to her from a dear, sweet friend after Casey and Jessie went to the Rainbow Bridge. She made it in their colors, and it even has paw prints in the fabric!

Momma wanted a special photo of me with the blankie. I was an extra good girl with it -- I know it's special!!

PeeS: I liked meeting all the other dogs at puppy class, but class was BORING! I already KNOW that stuff. Sit? Sheesh, I've got that nailed.

My first Blogville mail!

OMD, this is SO exciting! I actually gots my very furst mail ever!! Momma says that now I'm part of Blogville, I'm going to get lots of mail. But THIS one was special because it was furst.

I didn't even realize at first what she meant by "this mail is for you!" Then I was so excited, I tried to eat the card.

Thanks, Aunt Madi! You're the best!

PeeS: I'm starting Puppy Class tonight. I'm very nervous. Cross your paws I do okay!

Serene Sunday

It's particularly serene around our house today. Pigeon just came over to hang out on the chair with us. Look how chill I was! I didn't jump on her or sniff her too hard or anything.

We just looked at each other and then touched noses a bit. Momma got all leaky-eyed. Then Pigeon stepped right over me and I was a GOOD GIRL MATILDA.

This sister thing isn't so hard!

Training is hard work!

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! For some reason, Momma is wearing kitties on her ears today. She says it's because she thinks Friday the 13th is lucky -- she was born on it! -- so she likes wearing black cats. Weird.

Anyway, the Momma training has been going pretty well. I've got her trained to come bring me out into the yard regularly so I've got company to go potty. Sometimes I still sneak off to go in the hall or something, but Momma is getting pretty good at knowing when I want company. I've also got her trained on toys! Every day, I go through the toy boy and pull everything out to examine and play with. Then Momma puts them all back in the box for me! Pretty neat trick, huh?

This is my slinky dog. He's SUPER long and hard to maneuver, so I had to work really hard to get him up on the ottoman.

When I did, I made sure to hold him in place so he couldn't get away again!

Training humans and slinky dogs is sure hard work!
