Mommy has decided that I am ready to grow up a bit more. Up until now, every time I have gone outside I have been on a leash attached to Mommy or Daddy. But yesterday, Mommy decided I was old enough to go out on my tie out.
Mommy stayed close by and watched me. She was folding launder in the garage. After I did my business, I didn’t really know what to do with my new-found freedom. So I just laid down by the door to enjoy the sunshine.
I do still go for walks – 2 times a day. Mommy makes me wear my head collar for that. I really don’t like to have it put on until we are ready to go. Normally, this is what I do after Mommy puts it on.
But once we get going, I lead the parade.
I don’t pull, because that makes my head collar really uncomfortable. I just like to walk a bit in front.
Afternoons in the Workroom
I spend my afternoons in Mommy’s work room. She says she has it “puppy proofed”. She has a gate across the door to keep me in the room while she is working. But I can see Daddy in his office across the hall if I sit by the door. Daddy decided to come and see me yesterday afternoon, so I decided to ask “real pretty” for some petting.
I must have been a really good boy yesterday, because Mommy gave me a new toy last night. This one is a big stuffed square. I could barely get my mouth on it to tear at it. I did however, find one weak spot that I was able to chew a bit. Mommy says these are really tough toys and the only stuffed toys she will give me.
I guess my puppy teeth are just too destructive to other toys.
Well, I need to go rest up now. Puppy class tonight! Wonder what we will learn and what treats I will get?
