Pixie turns 1! (+pics of Ronnie the Olympic gold medalist)

Post by charlottieg on Sat Aug 13 2016, 18:02

Hi all

Though it was about time I posted an update on my fur babies........

Yesterday Pixie turned 1, where has the time gone!! We had a good day celebrating with a bbq and eating homemade dog cake.
FB 01-09-16


Earlier in the week I took Ronnie to an Olympic activities class run by the dog trainer that I've taken them to in the past. We had so much fun....i couldn't believe it, out of 15 other dogs he won 1st place!!!! Proud mum  Love Struck I think it was the fastest recall that scored him the most points.



Here is a pic of them posing in Granny's garden in Whitby a few weeks ago:



They are growing up to be lovely dogs, I'm so proud of them (but hey I'm bias!?). Don't get me wrong its been far from easy bringing them up together at a similar age but I think the hard work is finally starting to pay off. They aren't perfect but who is?!
Recall is getting a lot better, Ronnie has a habit of spooking pheasants/partridge on our morning walk and he now stops chasing them and comes back when I call them. (Pixie just follows Ronnie). Most of our walks we have them off lead but are still a bit cautious about letting them off on say a busy beach, its easier just to keep them on a long line as they just want to play with everyone. I'm sure you've all experienced the special people the aren't keen on staffy's too.
They are friendly with other dogs 90% of the time, its usually a case of angry little dogs yapping at them that set them off growling back.
Am I safe to say I think the chewing furniture has finally stopped too?
We still have a few issues with jumping up at guests when they come to visit but we are trying...I think most of our friends expect it now anyway Laughing

Ronnie turns 1 in 3 weeks so I will post more pics from his birthday....we are off night fishing...well Daddy is fishing mummy will be enjoying some wine and a book

Thanks for reading
Charlotte
