On the lookout

Two in a bed

Tatze and Twiglet have plenty of beds - but they still love to squash into the smallest - that's pack animals for you!

Twiglet passed her 6 month assessment with flying colours and now has her posh new jacket to wear out and about.  Here she is in front of a Christmas display at the garden centre.  We practised lifts, open tread stairs, lying sensibly while mum had a cappuccino in the cafe  and ignoring lots of cute toddlers!

Puppy on the roof?!

Twiglet shouts at her reflection in the skylight.  I like the way her ears flap as she woofs :)

Phew, we just had an incident in town - more embarrassing than worrying, I think. We were walking past a bull-type terrier when it started going wild, snarling snapping, barking and baring its teeth. Twiglet was brilliant and I was concentrating on walking her calmly past - when I fell! I managed to have the presence of mind to keep hold of her lead but soon had a crowd round me *blush* they were very kind and helped me up and Twiglet then looked at the dog (which was still going mental) and woofed, but was soon re-focussed - good girl! I have two bruised knees and a lot of wounded pride. She recovered in no time and we finished our walk and bus ride home. Here she is now (Yellow Lab/GR 23 weeks) lying down and surveying the garden in the sunshine with Tatze (pet black Lab).

My thought was - what if she were a guide dog and her owner couldn't see the bull terrier?
