New games …

I have mentioned before my new game of going absolutely nowhere when we are out on a walk. I must say that yesterday I surpassed even my own standards! Alex was getting a bit bored of my stopping and standing and had stopped giving me treats to try and get me to move so I …

More new friends

As each day passes I meet new people and make new friends. On Monday I met Barb. I am not sure she is all that keen on me, but hopefully I can change that over time. Barb comes to do a bit of gardening for Alex and she said that she likes dogs so, as it …

One paw forwards, two paws backwards

Oh dearie, dearie, me, what a few days I have had. Where do I start? I guess the question is – where did I paws last? Ah yes, the ramp. Well, let me start by saying that I wasn’t overly keen on the ramp when I first saw it. Firstly, it didn’t seem like a …

Every day is a school day …

Since Amanda’s (from Happy Buddies) last visit on Monday evening, I have been hard at it learning new things. Yesterday was a horrible day with lots of rain in the morning. I took Alex out for a walk but he didn’t seem that keen on the wind and rain. I quite liked it – I …

It’s been a while

Now I know that it has been a bit of a while since my last writing. It isn’t that there hasn’t been anything exciting happening in my life, in fact quite the opposite. I just haven’t had time to put paw to keyboard! Let me start where I left off last. On Saturday evening (it …

A good day out

This morning Alex did not bound out of bed in his usual manner. In fact he was a little slow to be perfectly honest but I suppose it is Saturday. Anyway, by 7.30am he was downstairs and I had been out in the garden for my morning constitutional. Richard got up and pretty much went straight …

Just because …

It has been a little while since I last wrote something. I have been quite a busy dog in the mean time and haven’t had much time for writing. Yesterday started exceedingly well. It turns out that Thursday is bin collection day. This is particularly good for someone like me. When the bins are collected …

What a night!

Oh my woof, what a night! Last night my new friend Amanda from Happy Buddies came and we started our training. She is really clever and knows lots and lots about dogs. She was explaining to Richard and Alex all about how when I bark I am usually just ‘attention seeking’ rather than actually worried …

My new harness

I am so excited today! Firstly, I have my new harness. It is red and says it is a ‘sports’ and ‘training’ harness. Obviously I don’t care too much about sport, but training is a different issue. Tonight I am going to meet my new trainer from Happy Buddies (her name is Amanda) and I am …

Hello Everyone

Hello everyone, welcome to my blog. If you haven’t already worked it out (and if that is the case, you are probably on the wrong website!) my name is Monty. I was adopted just last Saturday from the Dog’s Trust by my new family Richard and Alex. I am settling into my new home just …
