Back from the vet

I'm back from the vet

Mum says she thought I should be sleepy after the anaesthetic, but I'm not. 
I'm all bad tempered and growly.

Mum says she thought she would get to snuggle on the sofa with me.
But if she comes near me I BITE her!

I am not a happy puppy!

Aire busy week

I've had a very busy week!

Last weekend Mum and Dad went out on Friday night so Molly came to look after me.
Wasn't that kind of her?
I invited her into my crate for a cuddle

Then on Saturday night they had lots of people round for dinner.
They wouldn't let me have any!

not even when I howled!

On Sunday we went out in the bumpy car to the big shop again.
I still wasn't allowed to get down and walk round cos of the germs.
Mum says I'm getting too big to carry round now!
We bought a long long wire thing so I can be out in the front garden when Mum and Dad are doing the weeding and not run into the road.

On Monday I had to go to the vet.
She tricked me!
She gave me some treats, and while I was eating them she stuck a needle in me!
Then she squirted some stuff up my nose - I didn't like that either.
And then she gave me some more treats - I thought it was to say sorry, but then she stuck another even BIGGER needle in me. 
It was sore.
It made me bleed.
Dad said it was a microchip so I can't get lost or stolen.
Mum said nobody would want to steal me cos I'm too much like hard work!!!!

Then the vet lady looked at my teeth. 
She says I have to have two teeth taken out so my jaw can grow properly.
Mum isn't happy, she doesn't want me to have something called a general anaesthetic.
But the vet says if I don't have it done I might always have problems with my teeth, even when I get my growed up teeth, so I'm going to have it done next week.
I'll try to be brave.

On Tuesday I went out in Mum's bumpy car. 
Usually we go in Dad's car and Mum holds me, but this time I sat in the boot all on my own!
It was scary and I kept having to look over the seat to check that Mum was still there!
We didn't go far, just to another house in the village.
Mum said next time I will be able to walk there!
I got to play with another doggie called Tia.
Mum says she is a cocker spaniel.
She runs very fast!
But she shared her toys with me so I played with her a bit!

There's meant to be a video of me playing with Tia in here but Mum says she can't get it to load!

That was a pretty exciting and tiring few days, so I've spent most of the rest of the week playing in the garden

And cuddling Mum

And eating

and sleeping

And being just plain Airedorable!

Lots of love

Ten weeks old today!

Guess what?
It is two weeks since my Gotcha Day!
AND I am ten weeks old today!

Mum says I'm growing like a weed!
I've been having lots of fun

 I've been helping Mum in the garden

Can you see that hole behind me?

I didn't need to use the digger thing, I just used my paws!
Dad wasn't pleased
So I gave him my sad look

It worked!
I got to cuddle him on the sofa

Mum says I'm not supposed to be on the sofa

So why did she make me such lovely cuddly blankets and PUT them on the sofa?
I don't think I'll ever understand humans

This is my growly face
It keeps those pesky cats away

I asked Mum where the cats sleep
They obviously can't sleep on MY sofa

She took this photo to show me where they sleep

On the bed?
The human bed?
What a cheek!

I do most of my sleeping wherever Mum is

 Under the chair

Or just under her feet!

Mum says I'm being a good girl - most of the time
She's teaching me lots of fun things, like COME, and SIT
If I do what she says I get a treat

Lots of love

Woeful Wednesday

This is my sulky face

 And this is me turning my back

You wanna know why I'm sulking?
I'll tell you

Dad has gone back to work
What a cheek!

And Mum says she hasn't got time to play with me ALL the time
Even more of a cheek!
What else has she got to do all day?

She wasn't very happy when I weed on the kitchen floor when the back door was wide open

And she wasn't happy when I walked through it and left wet wee pawprints everywhere either

I did offer to help mop it up

So I thought I'd play outside for a bit while the floor dried

Look up

What do you think I'm looking at?

Ha ha! This is Millie

And this is Millie and Maddie

The other cat is called Wooster and he is a siamese
He is called Wooster cos he's a big wuss
That's why he isn't in the photo - he ran away!
Ha ha!

That'll teach Mum

I'll show her my tummy in a minute, she can't resist that
And I'll wag my tail really fast

And I'll try really hard to resist the urge to BITE!!!

Lots of love

A whole week since my Gotcha Day!

Mum says she can't type my blog for me while I'm racing around and chewing the laptop and biting her toes. I thought these lady humans were supposed to be able to multi-task, but apparently not!
So I've agreed to take a nap in my crate while she types, on the condition that the crate door is open so I can pop out to check she's still there whenever I want.

I've had a busy few days since she last blogged for me, so I hope she remembers everything I've asked her to tell you all!

It's been a whole week since my Gotcha day when Mum and Dad brought me to live here in my forever home, Poppy Cottage

I've been helping in the garden

Dad had to fence off the flower bed cos I kept eating the flowers - 

Hee hee, does he really think THAT will keep me out?

I've checked out all possible exits

I've chased the cats

I've been out in the bumpy car again, this time I went to the big pet shop to choose a new collar

I've already grown out of the old one!
I wasn't allowed to get down and have a good sniff around though, and Mum says I'm getting a bit heavy to carry around!

I've had more visitors and more new toys

Me? Chew the rug? No! I was playing with my new Kong toy, honest!

I've had lots of cuddles with Mum

And with Dad

And lots of snoozes

With my blanket that Mum made specially for me

And anywhere I happen to be when I feel sleepy!

See you all again soon!
Lots of licks and bites love
