Busy, busy (playing and growing …)

I’ve lost a few of my baby teeth (which my Mom got very exited about), I’ve grown a lot and now weigh 21.5 kgs and spend a lot of time playing in my garden and sleeping. I love the daily walks my Mom and I go for and I figured out how to get really great treats from her – I behave really well on the walks and walk on her left hand side without pulling or tugging at my lead (although its very tempting to run ahead and make her run after me because I am strong enough now to make her run!). But if I resist the temptation I get yummy treats when we get home and its so much fun to walk with her. When we get back we play her favourite game which is throwing the frisbee for me. It took a while before I figured what she wanted – I’m supposed to run after the frisbee, fetch it and bring it back to her. She gets very excited when I bring it back to her (more treats!) 🙂

My favourite treats are milk … no, liver spread … no, no, maybe milk is better … but pastrami is really good too. hmmm, all yummy. Sometimes I get a carrot (whats that about?) but I eat it anyway, its supposed to be good for me 🙂

Some new photos for you to see. My Mom says I have to confess that I am responsible for the mayhem in the garden – I’ve spent a lot of time destroying the little wall (on the first two photos to the right) and pulling up the irrigation system (the black tubing lying around) in some areas of the garden. She wasn’t very happy with me about that, but still, its just so much fun – and I’m still just a puppy …!





I’m getting bigger but I am still a puppy that needs lots of sleep.
Nitey nite for now …

Dexter’s weigh-in

Usually Mom weighs herself on the bathroom scale, then picks me up and we both get on the scale and she subtracts her weight from our combined weight and thats it. Doesn’t work anymore because I am getting too big and heavy for her, so we went to the Vet’s rooms today to get weighed. I’m 17.9 kg’s now (thats 39.38 lbs). Wow! (Note: I’m big, not fat! Lots of muscle).

There was a big cat at the vet that was very nice to me last time we were there. When I saw him today I was really excited to see him so I went to give him a lick and he hissed at me and slapped me! 🙁 Mom was sad for me because I looked as if I was going to cry so she let me choose a new toy, she chose one and we bought a bunch of treats and I soon forgot about the crotchety ol’ cat. He reminds me of our cat we have at home. He isn’t friendly either. I wonder why cats don’t like dogs?

I’ve found my bark! Its not a woof anymore but a real good bark. And I protect my property – when I hear strange noises outside, I bark – really loudly! Mom says whoever is outside must think I’m a really big and fierce dog and not just a puppy!

Thats all my news for today!

Growing Up

I am 3-and-a-half months old now and am growing and learning fast.
We haven’t had much time to write posts on my blog because my Mom is very busy with work and we’ve been having our garden sorted out, the fish pond cleaned and general home maintenance (including all the holes I’ve dug up and parts of the garden I’ve destroyed).

I went on a long walk in the forest with my big friend Ox. Ox still ignores me 🙁
I’m sorry I don’t have much to tell you today, but not much has happened in the last 2 weeks. Hopefully I will have new things to tell you next week if we do some fun things this weekend.

Here is a new photo of me …
