Yesterday was our first full day. We woke up to find Bobo with a waggy tail. Last night he whimpered just a little when we left him in his crate before he went quiet. He’s very good like that.
We had an early start – as we had an appointment at the vet. Mummy wanted the vet to check him over. We were a bit early so we sat and waited till it was 8am. Bobo waited patiently. Peter the vet saw me the other day when I had a wasp sting. Today he checked Bobo over. He was also very good.Apparently he has a slight overbite but of no concern. He has some pigmentation on his lower lip and a little scab like thing on top of his nose. Nothing to be concerned about. Mummy asked the vet what sort of cross he thinks Bobo is. He says he’s almost certain there’s some poodle in him. And he looks like a part Yorkie. Wow! Could he be a poo too?!?!?!
His weight is fine but have a feeling he will fatten up living with us. I have put on weight which is a no-no. Mummy knows it’s because of all the treats esp during Agility. We don’t run enough at Agility to burn off all those yummy treats.
We took our first long walk together. Bobo was fine. Just that he’s afraid of cars and big trucks. He would literally put on the brakes but Mummy and I, we just keep walking and he had to follow. And before you cross the road, look right And then left – oops, sorry, I didn’t look.Then we got to Kensington Gardens – I showed him where we always meet for our cockapoo get togethers. He will come and join us in the next one – since he is part poo according to the vet.We met lots and lots of dogs. Mummy didn’t let Bobo off the lead as she’s not sure he knows to come back. But a lot of dogs came over to say hello to him. He’s braver than me. If I saw some of those big dogs, I would be barking at them. But he’s so cool about it all. This one, I would have barked at him. And then there were the cockapoos! Rocko and Spencer! And then he charmed Spencer’s mummy. He is a bit of a charmer, this little guy.Next stop – the groomers! Mummy thinks Bobo had an erratic haircut. His little tail has long strands left hanging at the end and he had tufts of hair here and there that sticks out. So it was time for a proper groom. Poor Bobo, he was quite nervous about the whole thing.When we went to pick him up, he wasn’t happy. His tail wasn’t wagging. When Mummy held him, he clung onto her for dear life. His tail wasn’t wagging for a while. The groomers say he could also be Yorkie with Poodle and also probably a Shitzu. Oh dearie me – a Shit-Poo?!?!?
Then it was time to go and pick up the right coloured lead at Purple Bone for Bobo. This at least matches the harness – still waiting for his collar. We’ve been out the whole day – the sun was setting as we set off home. Been a full on day for little Bobo and he took it all in stride. He sometimes walk in different directions but overall we walk very well together.Back at home, we were zonked.
