Marley invited us to his house for a doggy Christmas party (such a busy social calendar, you cannot imagine!)
It was an interesting “party” – it started off quite nicely. We arrived at his lovely home and had a really good fun running around their garden. All of us chasing GeorgePoor little Bubbles got tired running after usBut we soon went inside and there was this guy whom Marley was really excited to see It’s Oli Juste the dog trainer – we met him at Pet Aid.He was telling the hoomans about us!!! Giving away our secrets.
After all that insight about us, the hoomans decided we were too dirty after running around in the garden, getting all muddy and thought they would then give us all a bath and fluffing session. So our party turned out to be their party!
But not gorgeous little Marley who did not get muddy like the rest of us. So he presided over affairs for the rest of the day …
He watched as Mummy gave Georgie a wash –After his fluffing, he looked dreamily into the garden – desperately wanting to go out again.
When Mummy said, “No way, Jose!” he was upset and got a hug from PraewaThen Praewa worked her magic with Jaffa – brushing her out before a wash And voila! Jaffa after a blow-dry And then it was my turn – looking more like a spaniel when I am wetAnd I had the fluff out as wellAfter that I definitely deserved a treatAs for Bubbles …Well, she ‘s always fluffy!But in the end, after the hoomans had us all clean again, Mummy said – ok, one last run before we left the party! But George was reluctant to come in when Mummy said it was time to go home.He stood his ground for awhile till “treats” was calling! LOL!
May’s comment: Thank you Marley for hosting us!We had an interesting dog-training theory with Oli Juste, a dog trainer behaviourist whom we had met at Pup Aid. Had a few insights about our fur babies. And things to think about – what we had assumed, was not what we had thought. We discussed marking, play-fighting, etc, etc. Thinking of setting up another party for people looking to gain further insights and questions about dog behaviour. It was interesting to also learn from each other’s experiences with our dogs.
