Looking for an enthusiastic puppy for intensive playing duties. Must have several months’ experience of over-the-top play and be able to work all hours, including weekends.
Responsibilities include rushing round the house and waggling bottom in the air at regular intervals. The ability to withstand bouts of excited barking, right in the face, would be beneficial:
Everyone who knows me knows how smart I am. It’s a Bordoodle thing. But that heritage also means that I love to herd anything that moves. Oh, and ‘budge’ people if they are standing in the wrong place or not doing the right thing. I also like to bark at anything that isn’t doing exactly what I want it to – like the Kong when it doesn’t dispense treats quickly enough, or Mum when she is being REALLY slow at getting my dinner ready 🙂
In the park today, I got my first look at some baby quackers. They were running all over the place…didn’t take me long to line them up though. Who needs sheep when you can have ducklings?
Mummy duck was most impressed, but then a BIG swan came over to have a look and I had to run for cover.
If you even move a feather, my shiny wet nose will touch your tiny beak faster than you can say ‘breadcrumbs’…
Everyone’s favourite ‘loveable rogue’ in cartoon form…
If only I could stand so still in real life!
Anyone else feel a Hector’s House illustrated book coming on? Or maybe a ‘Doodles of Doodles’ blog. Come on Mum…what else are you doing?!
We’ve had amazing weather here over the past week…and that means lots of outdoor play! Dad took me to the big park this morning, and I went for a paddle in the river. It was great! People even came over to watch me splash about and waited around to see if I really would pull Dad off the bank into the water 🙂
Back at home, I’ve been busy seeing off the birds from MY garden and playing with my new black pig. (Note from Hector’s Mum: this is black pig number 3 – the previous ones ‘died’ of open heart surgery, apparently).
In other news, the next door neighbour gave me a sausage last week, so every time I see him in his kitchen now, I bark at him just so he knows that I’m ready for the next one!
No words necessary. Just watch and above all…listen!
