There isn’t much going on in our house in the afternoon. Most of the time Mommis is working, and there’s nothing to do so I like to take a nap. Luckily Mommis has a very large comfy bed, and now I’m big enough to jump up on it without her help. I do have my training collar on, but since I didn’t feel a click, I assume I’m not doing anything wrong.

Portraits of Pups:Bruno

Bruno is a French bull terrier puppy. He loves to run and play with us. Guess what’s really cool about him? He’s deaf. The humans have to talk to him through hand signals, although they yell at him anyway. They don’t always get it that he’s deaf but we do. We got to know him through smelling, and we’re a little careful about surprising him. He’s Adorbs. We want him to come out every day but his Mommis travels a lot.

Portraits of Pups: Ringo

Ringo is Xena’s brother. Although he Is also part rottie, he is colored like a boxer and his other part is Staffordshire terrier. He is a very sweet boy who walks slowly because he has already torn 2 ACLs. He had surgery on the first one, but he refused it this time.

We Passed

Mommis did a great job on my Canine Good Citizen test. She didn’t confuse me at all and we passed. It was hard work though.

I had such a big day that I barfed at her ASU class with my vest on. I think it was the three Crimini mushrooms that I ate off the floor at Sprouts that morning. Or maybe it was stress. A nice man in her class cleaned it up before I could re-eat it, which I was going to do for her.

Portraits of Pups: Leeloo

Leeloo is my girlfriend. At first I thought she was my litter mate, but I guess I was wrong. Every morning I try to rape her, but she never lets me. And then we wrestle. We’ve slept together twice in the same crate, but nothing happened. I don’t understand why, but nothing did. We didn’t get a puppy. Then she went off and got her service dog certification before me.  A real betrayal.

She’s leaving me for six weeks soon. This would be, as you might expect, a big bummer for me, but I’m a dog and I live in the present.
