Vet and first walk

We are going for a drive in the car. Apparently we are going to the vets,(to see the man in the white coat). I am going to have my last lot of injections. I need to have these so that I am ok to go out for walks. (not quite sure what walks are but I am looking forward to it.) It is a lady in a white coat that I actually see. She makes a big fuss of me and puts me up on a big table. She tries to look into my mouth to make sure that my teeth are growing alright. Nick tells her they seem ok, he says that I have no trouble chewing through the doorframe in the kitchen, I am so proud that I am obviously doing that right,(Well I must be, otherwise he would't have mentioned it. Would he?)
The injections don't hurt,(well I didn't feel a thing,) and I get another treat, this one must be off, because it tastes rank,(so that's where I get my bad breath from.) I am carried back out to the waiting room and Nick pays the bill, there are so many people out there and they all want to make a fuss of me. I am wagging my tail so hard Julie can hardly hold me, she says it will be so much easier for her when I can walk rather than have to be carried, (that's what she thinks. ha,ha.)
It has now been two weeks since I last went to the vets, and today is the day I have my first walk.
I have never been on a lead before it is quite strange, I want to go one way and the person holding the lead wants to go another.
I am only little, so I do the zigzag, I walk in front of them and then just zigzag, they don't know which way I am going to go, and while they are getting tangled up in the lead I take them in the direction that I want to go. It is so funny that I still do it with Nick now if I can. I am not allowed to do it with Julie. (she can be quite bossy at times.}

Skeet's new Blog. Rules of the House

Rules of the House
As the days and weeks go by I miss my dog family less.
I have a new family now. I call them my people family.
They provide me with everything I need; food,water,warmth,affection and shelter. All I have to do is look at them with my brown puppy eyes and I get everything I want. But if that doesn't work I just take it and RUN! That was when I found out what fun is. No one can catch me, when I run past them with socks and tea-towels. I can turn faster than them, and if they were goal-keepers their team would be off the league table, they are so bad at judging where I am going to go next. I also like to slam-dunk them when they are not expecting it, I will charge across the room at them from a standing position and launch myself at them. Nick laughs so much I am sure that one day he will have an accident. Talking of which I have had to be housetrained, which means if I need to have a wee or anything else (you work it out) I have to ask to go outside. I am getting quite good, but I do have accidents. Such as when a big monster appears on the telly. Jurassic Park I think it was,then I have to find Julie for a quick cuddle, and to rush me out the backdoor.
I stay with Julie's parents during the day, that is fun,they are older and a bit slower, so I try to behave,but I am only a puppy after all. They will leave papers and slippers around for me to play with. But best of all,they've got a tea-cosy. That gets taken for a run of the house a lot, and I can now make it up the stairs.
Let the fun begin.
Don't forget to check out Julie's new range of Canvas Prints and Greeting Cards (I'm on one)
See you next week
