Walking in a winter wonderland

As I said a few posts ago on Christmas day, Riley went on her first walk! She loved it but the tiny downside was the big muddy puddles and as you know Riley is only a little dog so she cannot jump over it, has no sense to go round it… so she goes through it.

A rather dirty dog

And then Finty likes nothing better (apart from a tennis ball) than a stick

Look at this beauty!


Riley still loves walks, even if they’re a little wet.

Mischief Monday

Here is a picture for the last Mischief Monday 2014.

I’m going to see Santa!

Because today is the last mischief Monday of 2014 I thought I’d try and find Rileys most mischievous deed this year.

Was it: 
  • Chewing the Christmas tree
  • pulling the spikes of the brothers dinosaur (it looks like a kangaroo now!)
  • Squeezing through the gap in the fence to next door
  • Defeating the stair gate- crawling through two of the bars 
no it was probably dragging my mud coated wellies across the living room carpet, leaving a brown trail. Plus not only did this look bad, it took ages to clean up.
What has been your dogs most mischievous achievement this year?

He came!

It is time to do a recount of our wonderful Christmas Day, and Riley’s very first Christmas. She couldn’t wait for Santa Paws to come- she wanted to see him so she tried to stay awake.

Honestly, I’m NOT TIRED (yawn)

When she woke up Riley dashed to her stocking to see if Santa Paws had come after all that waiting….

Riley was dying to see what was inside, but she had to wait for her fellow members of the household to wake up. This however seemed to take AGES!

By the time everyone had come down- and the adults had made a milky brew Riley had a peek inside her stocking.

It contained: Rawhide chews (yum),
a Giraffe teddy,
A puppy Kong and some Chicken treats- perfect tit bits for training

After tugging her giraffe around for a bit Riley saw a bag under the tree with her name on and decided to open it.

How do you do this?
Aha a penguin 
And some treats!
After all this present excitement Riley went on her first walk.
She was very good but because of the rain managed to get very muddy by the end of the walk.
At the end of a very tiring but exciting day, we got some news that we are going to start training classes at the beginning of January!
Wow what a day! Hope you and all your dogs had a very merry Christmas. 

Tricks on Tuesday- What can your dog do?

Only 2 days till Christmas and Riley’s been busy practising her tricks. Her tricks include:

  • Sit
  • Heel
  • twirl (spin around on the spot)
  • legs (figure of 8 weave around my legs)
  • under, over (I stretch out my leg and she crawls under and then jumps over)

We wish you a merry Christmas..
If your dog has any tricks then please comment below and the best one will be posted on Friday.
