Boris Takes Over

Hello Everypawdy
 I'm not too sure what to write as it's my first ever blog post, it's been some time since Badger Boo first introduced me, but you may have seen a bit about me on the Hoomums blog.

Badger Boo has now handed the reins over to me to update his blog, don't worry there's nothing wrong with him, now that he's approaching old age, he's 13 you know, he rarely has any Daft Adventures anymore.

Nowadays he likes to stay at home sleeping on his heat pad, pottering up and down the road and occasionally coming over the common for a nice long walk if the weather is warm enough, so that's why he's asked me to take over updating his blog
 

Let me introduce myself properly
My name is Boris and I'm an 8 month old Working Cocker Spaniel.
This is what I look like


Quite a stunner I think you'll agree.
 OK so I don't have Badger Boo's pretty colouring, but I have the softest shiniest black coat ever.

Apparently I have a massive intellect but zero common sense, one day mummy hopes to train me well enough to become her Assistance Dog.

At the moment Miss Lucy is my teacher at The Company of Animals and is helping mummy to teach me all sorts of neat tricks, because it exercises my brain and I just love doing things to please mummy.

This is me learning "I'm Shy" I picked this up fairly quickly, mummy taught me how to do this using a clicker and some treats, it sure is a fun way to learn stuff and it makes it easy to remember too.




This is me at one of my training sessions over in Churtsey, Miss Lucy very kindly made this video for mummy as she'd left here phone camera thingy in the car.



Now you know a bit more about me, I look forward to getting to know all of Badger Boo's friends and followers in the weeks to come.

Silent Sunday

Bad Hair Day

Sorry it's been such a long while since I last posted, Boris is growing up fast and mummy has been busy training him.

He's a very intelligent young pup and can do several tricks now, as well as learning all about good manners and the usual things us pups have to learn.

The top knot on his bonce has started growing out of control, it's even more impressive than mine now. 

 

Mummy is itching to strip it out, but has so far resisted the urge as it's kinda cute.

He's now a lot bigger than me but still a big baby. The other day a Pigeon flew up out of the bracken and scared the life out of him.
A Gun Dog running away and yelping in fear at a silly old Pigeon, but at least nobody else saw, it was soooooo embarrassing!

Hope you all had a pawsome Christmas, and Santa Paws bought you lots of toys and treats.
See you in the New Year.

Official Hello and Welcome to Little Boris

Did you guess?
I'm sure you did with my Sunday picture hints. 
I've got a brand new baby brother called "Little Boris"

Here he is at 8 weeks old on his very first day with us, he looks so small and cute next to me and my favourite toy Chunky Monkey, sadly Chunky Monkey is no longer with us because Little Boris decided to kill him, he pulled his head off and pulled all of his stuffing out **sobs**




I'm not sure I'll ever forgive him for that crime, he then went on to do the same thing to my other toy Mr Cat, in fact I think he may have killed all my stuffies in the 6 weeks he's been living here.

Boris now has lots of Nylabone toys and a Kong to chew on now and do as he wishes with, any toy I don't want him to destroy lives upstairs with me. 
This'll make you laugh, it did me when I found out.
Boris isn't allowed upstairs or to sit on the sofa with us at night, mummy says it's my domain and it's a good place to escape too when he gets really annoying, and believe me he can be annoying at times. 

Just because I can't see him coming, he thinks it's great fun to grab my ears and play tug with them or to bite my stubby tail with his needle sharp teeth.
 I gives him a good telling off for that, but he won't stop and doesn't seem to have an off button!
Sometimes I just wants to be left on my own to snooze, hence why I have safe places he's not allowed to go too, which is really pawsome.

Boris started Puppy Pre School last week, and did very well by all accounts, I stayed home and slept, I didn't like the sound of that, being surrounded by  even more yapping puppies.

Here he is during the "Settle" exercise watching daddy and watching the teacher, they both had food, so of course he was watching them, he's a right piggy when it comes to food and is always trying to steal mine if nobody picks the bowl up in time.






I've heard people say he's very intelligent as he can already do Sit, Stand, Down and Recall.  
I have my doubts about the use of that word, I mean look at the next picture, he can't even figure out how how to sleep in his bed, he sleeps like this all the time, talk about a Silly Billy! It doesn't matter how many times I climb in and show him, he still sleeps like it.




Every day mummy takes me and Boris over the common for a run, to start with Boris had to wear a safety line in case he got spooked by something and bolted off, he doesn't know the area and sometimes new things might  give him a bit of a fright, we'd hate to lose him if he ran off scared by something.




Ever since I lost mummy a few months ago, I've had to keep her on the Flexi Lead as I can't see or hear where she is and it stops her wandering off. 
You'll never guess what amazing thing has happened on our walks.

Without any training at all Boris has learnt to keep a close eye on mummy, if she gets too far away he gallops after me and comes to tell me all about it.



He then leads me back to find her so she doesn't wander off and get lost again.
How cool is that?

I guess that Boris isn't such a Silly Billy after all.
We hope you all have a pawtastic weekend.
