My Golden Retriever Puppy: 'BELLE'

Golden Retriever Puppy - BELLE
Belle's Blog

Hello, my name is Belle and I am a 4 month old Golden Retriever. My posh name is 'Cameacy Yellow Freesia'.

My Mam is called Claire and Dad is called Tony. As they both work they spent nearly 3 years debating whether they could have me or not, they then found Bernie, my babysitter who gave them lots of advice and visits me three times a day when they are at work.

Mam is now known as the 'mad dog lady' and seems to spend more time in her green wellies than she does in her fancy clothes, even the hairdryer and make-up have been pushed to the back of the draw! I don't mind though as it means she spends more time with me. According to my Mam I'm shooting up and she has already nick-named me Kate Moss because of my long legs. My Dad thinks I'm more like a gangly teenager!

So what's been happening so far?

I was born on 5th October along with my five brothers and five sisters.

I know my parents are biassed but they said I was the prettiest, the main reason they picked me was because I came over to greet them both and licked their hands.

I settled into my new home very quickly and had lots of new toys to play with and cosy places to sleep, however I kept thinking if only I could jump up on that sofa as that looked the cosiest place of all. I can now manage the jump however when I try Mam shouts some word at me and pushes me away. I've learnt now to wait until her back is turned and then give it another go!

It was quite cold and dark when I moved into my new home and for some reason they both insisted on taking me outside every half hour where they would say the word "business" to me over and over again. I have now learned that if I do business I get a treat, on occasions if I don't want business but still want a treat I just adopt the business position and pretend, this seems to have worked so far especially when it's raining!

I've now learned to keep my paws crossed and only go out for business after I've woken up and had something to eat....mmmm food I think this is my favourite time of day, that and sleeping.

I also look forward to my daily walks but love my training classes best of all, if I get my commands right I get bits of tasty chicken and turnip. One thing I'm not too happy with is most days Mam puts her hand under my bottom lifts me up a little bit, straightens my legs and then lifts my chin up, she says I have to learn to stand like a lady if I want to win rosettes, not sure what that's all about, no doubt I'll find out soon enough.

I also love trips out in the car as it normally means a visit to Grandad's, I'm allowed up on the sofa there and get treats without having to do anything for them. He's the best!

Anyhow I best go now as I'm off to puppy classes to meet all my new friends.
