Tuesday 8th May 2012 – We are ALL home.

Well we are all home and I really do mean ALL. Obviously there is Shadow who didn’t go away and Megan who caused all the fuss and me and Ari back from kennels but then there’s Amigo too. He’s slotted right in to the team. He’s not really certain what is ok so we are showing him the ropes. Ari will have him stealing off the kitchen side before you know it and I’m already teaching him the most comfortable spots around the house. What is difficult for him is that he has been put on a diet as he needs to lose a bit round the middle. He tried claiming it was just puppy fat, but I said that even as a puppy it is better to make sure you don’t sag in any inappropriate places. He’s got a really soft rich coat and is very loving. He needs to do a bit of work on the old training, but he’s already working on it and is doing most of the things I tell him. It’s nice seeing the brothers together, although funny seeing Ari as the more confident one. I remember when he was just the bottom of the chain and now look at him.

I’m tired just watching my Mistress sorting out the dog walking rota. Megan is still being kept separate and Ari has to have short walks on grass rather than roads. It means that everyone goes out in shifts. I’m fully expecting that either my Mistress is going to be working up a very healthy appetite or she will reduce in size quite rapidly.

What I forgot to tell you was that I misspelt the Dutch Liberation Day. Ah it’s hard. I grew up with Flemish and it’s just that little bit different to Dutch. How was I supposed to remember that tiny little ‘g’? Anyway, as that wasn’t the day for the puppies being conceived I don’t need to worry about it too much.
