the wee boyo has had a mega busy day bless him and he has coped with it all really well 🙂
he did some clicker training early this morning
then he got his collar on
then he went out in the car when i took Mo to church for the funeral – i dashed in to pay my respects and give apologies and when i came out the horse and carriage was just going past the car to turn around …boyo was up at the side window and he barked at the horses – i got in car and waited for them to come back from the turn he got up again as they approaced and before i could say anything ami thwacked him down 😀 he sat quietly and watched nice …
then i popped him into the vets so they could all meet him and he got lots of cuddles and ooos and ahhhs and sweeties
then we went to brownsover fields and he had a romp about he was pouncing on the buttercups and eating the chickweed – he was glued to my feet on and off or trundling alongside ami’s – he did 5 whistle recalls and 4 were fluent – number 3 was hesitant and for 2 of them he had to leave ami quite a way off
then we went to tesco’s to the ciggy counter so he in my arms and half the staff came to fuss him
then he had lunch in the car – something he needs to be able to do
then he had a 45 min snoozy after being totally washed by ami amidst squeals of nomorenomore but she was insistant 🙂
then we sat in a street cafe and got petted by all and sundry
then he went to a nursery/creche and met a load of 3/4 year olds
then he came home and had his first chicken wing – he stripped off the meat and crunched his way through about 1/2 of the bone and then he had end of a pork rib – he likes those 🙂
and now he is snoring his head off ……..May 16, 2008 at 3:41 pm #101349

Lol at the end of the vid, does he start nibbling your feet? 😀 He’s lovely, you got used to the long waggy tail? ;D

I bet he’s wreaked after his busy day! :-* i miss doing all the puppy things with dodge :'(May 16, 2008 at 4:45 pm #101354AnonymousGuest
He got a tail ????????
eh …. but but but you said most of litter to work ?
were the ones for work homes done and him not (remember you saying he was booked in the tummy still) for his owner ?
OMG its gonna be odd one with a tail who’d have thought it !May 16, 2008 at 5:09 pm #101355.dodger.Member
I thought you couldn’t dock any dog working or not.May 16, 2008 at 5:23 pm #101356
the breeder opted not to dock in case any buyers wanted to dual show and work
what the clumber breeders are doing is docking pre 6 weeks on a selected pup but that pup does not get KC registered …so that f ups any future registration of pups that dog may have and the dna register and and and ….
a dog can be docked for working laura but it cannot be shown
check out the docking threads – dont want to turn this into a dock no dock debate but yep – he has a tail – as will the girl unless i opt to not KC register her – he may not work in the field but he might – i may show him but i might not – dad is a ch …mum is a worker – this is a classic example of what the docking ban has done to gunners – if he works and gets 1 tail injury – he gets it off – no arguing no hesitation – and i can still show – can’t do owt else now except subject him to a GA and then never be able to show him and am not going there – heyho…if you want to debate we open another post please 🙂
in scotland – there is huge petition / movement going to get the bill adjusted for gunners – i hope they win afterall it big shoot country – and then we might get that chance too – in the meantime we stuck between a rock and a hardplaceMay 16, 2008 at 5:36 pm #101357AnonymousGuest
sorry – didnt mean to start a debate, just suprised 🙂
will be in awe of you gaiting with clumber Bev 🙂
