18 months + (Shelton Abbey Prison Programme)
I’ve been on the move again and now I have a new home and a new human looking after me! I’m not sure what the new place I’m living in is called just yet but there are lots and lots of other people living here too and all of them are the more hairy humans (I haven’t seen any smooth humans yet in this new place). We all live together in a huge house, sort of like a castle. My human sleeps in the same room as some other humans and I have a bed in there too so I’m not feeling too lonely in this new place. The best bit about living here is that my brothers and sisters are living here too! They all have their own hairy human taking care of them now.

I really like it here because my human doesn’t go anywhere without me at all, so I never have to worry that I’ll be on my own and I get lots and lots of attention! I heard someone call him Bob so maybe that’s his name, or maybe all the hairy humans are called Bob? I’m not sure yet.

There is lots of grass to run around on outside my new home. I go out for a big walk a few times a day with my human and then every night when we are back inside he brushes my whole body with a big brush which always makes me feel really sleepy.

I have some great new toys to play with here and I don’t even need to share them with anyone (except my human who throws them for me and I try to catch them as fast as I can). One of the toys is really bouncy and I never know which direction it’s going to go in next! I’m always really tired after trying to catch it for a long time but I usually manage to get it eventually. Another new toy I have is really good fun to push over with my nose and then treats come out, like magic!

Some days in my new home are special days, and some special men come and take me and my brothers and sisters and all our humans outside. We are learning lots of new things now and my human says I will need to know all these things for the special job I have to do when I’m a big grown-up dog. I learned that sometimes the human wants me to sit down and I get a treat for sitting until he tells me its time not to be sitting any more. Sometimes he wants me to follow him and sometimes he doesn’t and he says ‘WAIT’. I realised I get really good treats when I do well and my human is really pleased with me too.

Sometimes other humans come to visit my human! One of them is a smooth human and there are two half size humans that call him ‘Daddy’ (so maybe his name isn’t Bob after all). The half humans are always really excited to see me and give me lots of cuddles and they love it when my human shows them all the new things I learned.

Anyway, I have to go now as it’s time to go back outside and practice all the new things I’ve learned

Till next week…
