“You know how it is with some girls. They seem to take the stuffing right out of you. I mean to say, there is something about their personality that paralyses the vocal cords and reduces the contents of the brain to cauliflower.” ―P. G. Wodehouse

My Puppy Progress Report from Diane at Diane’s Canine School of Charm:

The man did much better today. He has such a zest for life that he thought he didn’t have to do anything I asked him except sit and that was momentary. Today he sat longer, walked on the leash much better and learned that biting the hand that gives him the treats is a no no. Down was better also. I love his attitude, he does want to please and he is smart, a thinking lab. Tomorrow we see if he comes when called with and without distractions. Take care. Diane

Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest… It’s about who came, and never left your side…

Since I am at puppy school, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my friends’ best photos.  I love this one of Lily and Mabel (Jennifer & Lindsay’s pups) cuddled up for movie night.  I love a good cuddle.  I hope the feature film was Benji, Turner & Hooch or, 101 Dalmations!  Woof

Today I headed off to boarding school at Diane’s Canine School of Charm. So much to learn about what my humans want from me but I am an eager student. I have also made fast friends with a golden and a cute little Weimereiner. I’ll keep you posted!

This photo is Diane meeting me for the first time. She also told mom that it was the last time she would let me jump up on her. What? No jumping? Hmmmmm….that’s a new one!
