Moving Forward - Life After Badger Boo



Hello everpawdy, hope you all had a pawtastic Christmas. 
As you've probably noticed I've made some changes to the blog, a new year equals a new start.

Things have been difficult for The Olds since Badger Boo left us for The Rainbow Bridge in August.

My Sunday Photo

My latest new toy, I found it upstairs in mum's craft room, it's a treasure trove of dog toys up there! Badger Boo kept that a secret from me when I wasn't allowed up those stairs because it was his special place.

 I love it and can't stop carrying it around all day, mum says I'm not supposed to carry it this way, but I don't want to hold it in the middle.

Some Sad News

An awful lot has happened since I last posted but I'll tell you more about that in future posts.
Today I have to tell you the very sad news that Badger Boo crossed The Rainbow Bridge last Wednesday morning.

It was discovered a few weeks ago he was suffering with Pancreatitis and he was quite unwell, but with medication he soon rallied and became more his like his old self again.

Happy 1st Birthday Boris




I'd forgotten how much work puppies were! Boy did you re educate me quickly, with the digging up of my lovely garden, the almost constant removal of slugs and stones from your mouth, the endless trips outside every hour on the hour day and night to potty, it took you weeks to get the hang of toilet training didn't it, where did all that poop come from in one so small?

I'm a Yellow Dog

I'm out and about on very short walks on the lead now, I'm still not allowed to play with other pups, so I wear a yellow ribbon on my harness and lead to inform everypawdy I need some space since my surgery.


There are lots of different reasons why some dogs are Yellow Dogs.

My fur is growing back and I'm starting to look nice and smart again.

A Lot Has Happened

WHOOPS
I missed a couple of weeks.

Not a very successful start to my new job as a Doggy Blogger, but I do have a really good excuse.

A couple of times I've suffered from unexplained lameness in my front leg which as always healed with rest, but mummy decided it needed investigating as there was no reason for me to be going lame.

So off to the vets I went for X-Rays, then a couple of days later mummy gets a phone call that I have to go to Fitzpatrick Referrals for a CT scan as something is wrong.

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 a 7 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.
