when mama puts out my food she usually makes me wait until she says “get it”…
sometimes she even puts some on my paws to make sure I’m paying attention…I don’t like it!
say “get it”…SAY IT!!
I’m hungry Mama…snort!! xo
p.s. Mama feeds me coconut oil, pumpkin, and yummy Orijen
Mommy made me sit in all sorts of places today…
that is all…
we had a fun class today…we did lots of recall…my recall word is CUPCAKE!
when mama yells “Cupcake” I come a runnin’….
I feel bad that Mommy is mad at me…maybe this cute pug chasing bubbles will cheer her up!
I’m sorry Mom…I didn’t mean to run off…
We met a nice man who lives on our block while we were on our walk today. He had two dogs with him…and he gave me a treat!! He said it was dehydrated chicken. It was delicious!! Mom never gives me treat while we’re out walking.
Later when we were in the park and I was playing a fun game with Mom – and out of nowhere two big dogs came charging at me…I ran off with them – all the way through the park – and ended up in the street. Mom was very upset with me – she didn’t talk to me or look at me for ages when we got home.
She usually whispers in my ear before I go to bed – telling me I’m a good dog, and a pretty dog, and she loves me. She told me she loves me but she didn’t say any of the other stuff…I must’ve been a bad dog…booo!
My mom saw this photo online recently. She says it is so cute it makes her want to buy me a soother or pacifier or whatever they’re called.
I mean REALLY!! I’m a big girl, I had my first birthday and everything. It seems so undignified…but maybe it’s yummy?

Hmmm…well I’ll keep you posted. Do any of you have one?
It was a big week last week…it was my final class and then on the weekend were the Olympics with all the dogs from all the classes (40+ dogs in a large chilly room). We were divided into 4 teams…sadly there were only 2 other dogs from my “pack” on our team.

There were a bunch of different relays…and then the humans did a dog knowledge/trivia test…and then the individual events (sit stays & down stays).
we're #1! we're #1!
We came in FIRST PLACE!! Yay!! This is my snazzy purple ribbon…I was a proud (and clever) puppy!
Woof! It was my last class today…I’m kinda sad…I’ve spent every Monday, Wednesday & Friday morning with these guys for 10 weeks…walking, jumping(ish) over picnic tables, doing sits on the large concrete balls on 8th avenue, riding the C-train, riding escalators, walking (or being dragged) over those stupid grates in the sidewalk, learning recall commands (“Cupcake” is what makes me come running to mom), dragging my leash on walks (I like that part!), learning to greet other dogs (some of those dogs in the off leash parks were SO badly behaved…no manners…sheesh), and a bunch of other stuff which mom keeps telling me I’ve forgotten.
I’ll miss you guys! xo
Whew…it was kind of chilly for class today. Mom insisted on putting this stupid pink coat on me before we left the house. I hate it! I kept trying to shake it off but it just wouldn’t budge! Argh…
Near the end of class we actually went inside, but then we all had to sit for our class photo. A couple of my classmates just wouldn’t sit still…Mom tells me I’m not very good at the sit stays…but boy was she proud…even through all the barking & mayhem I held my sit…I sure wasn’t enjoying myself but I held it.
When I finally got to go back to mom she whispered “good girl” at me…but then she put that stupid pink thing back on me! I DO NOT LIKE IT…but I guess I don’t like the cold either. Hmph!
Time for a wee nap in Mom’s lap…snrrrrrr…
My Dad took me to a “casting call” today…there were SO many dogs there. They were mostly all QUITE mis-behaved!! I didn’t really enjoy myself but I CERTAINLY was better behaved than those “OTHER” dogs!!
Lulu's first casting call
Here’s another photo:

When we got home I heard my Dad tell my Mom that I looked a bit thick around the neck in the photos…do I have a fat neck? Eeek..! I feel so self-conscious now!$%!”@!
