We Puppies Learn From Other Dogs and Other Things

When I’m out and about I love meeting other dogs and I’ve met all sorts and the basic rule is we only go as close as is comfortable for all dogs …jump on the dogs… and if it’s a nervous dog I get to sit and watch from a safe distance. It gives the other dog time to work out I’m ok …use the force Ted… and then we get a bit closer. Some dogs I want to show them I’m boss but other dogs look and walk like a boss and we puppies like that.

We were out and about when an Alsation and another “him” went past steering his dog like he was in one man and his dog and they were manoeuvring around as I sat and watched them pass. I was so impressed that the rest of the walk the lead never went tight at all. I was in the zone.

He makes me watch all sorts of things and I always sit down and suss it out. It sounds daft but we watched seagulls, pigeons and a couple of Magpies attack a bag of bread. …chase the birds… I wanted to run straight over but he reminded me to sit and watch, which I did with utter fascination. Did you know they can fly? Now I look up and see them all over the place and so we watched, took a few slow steps closer and sat down to watch again. We even watched sparrows munching on the nut feeders on the balcony. He makes me watch traffic and I love watching buses, which I’ve been on now and love to travel. I love watching people get on and off cos I’m learning how they do it and it’s nothing to get stressed about. …chase the bus…

He even tried to get me to notice the stars at night but I keep thinking he’s looking at a treat.

…is it chicken…
