Alfie had an ear infection due to his obsession with the river so we kept him on his lead. There’s a certain part of the river he loves so we avoided walking near there but Alfie started barking and pulling me to the part of the river. Normally he cannot pull me at all but this afternoon he had me running behind him he pulled that hard! When we got to the river I thought he just wanted a swim but then I saw an elderly lady stood in the river holding a tree, when she saw us she let go and got swept away with the strong current. I instinctively Jumped in and managed to get hold of her, it turned out she was trying to kill herself due to family problems. I got her out of the river and she was taken to hospital where she has been for along time now. To cut a very long story short had Alfie not pulled me to her she probably would not be here now! It was Alfie’s barking and pulling me with all his strength! We were the talk of the village for a few weeks!!

A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn’t care if your rich or poor. clever or dull, smart or dumb.

How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel etraordinary?

He then ignores us as he would prefer to play with them than come back to us! We are thinking about trying a whistle for recall to see if that will make any difference. Has anyone tried a whistle? We’re working on walking to heal and some days he’s very good and others he pulls like mad. We’re getting there, he’s still only young.

He is constantly running off with sky remotes, shoes, mobiles phones and anything else he knows he shouldn’t have. He is a very strong willed puppy and will not give in easily. He is getting very big and everyone we meet can’t believe he’s only 8 months. We invested in a larger crate as he started to chew through walls and our kitchen furniture!! He even chewed a part off the washing machine. He has got a great cheeky character and we wouldn’t change him for the world and love him to bits.

He absolutely loves to swim in the river retreiving sticks and rocks. He even puts his head under the water to find them. He is so energetic and it takes a lot to tire him out. The only way to properly tire him out is to let him play with his friends Molly the sheep dog and Max the dalmation. He loves running around with them all over the farmers crops!! oops!

He can now sit, lie down, stand, roll over, come when called, leave and best of all high five!! He has lost a lot of his baby teeth and has some great new ones coming. Maureen came to see him before Christmas with one of his brothers and Alfie loved playing with him. It was great to her and get more advice on how best to look after Alfie. On December 20th we went and stayed in a dog friendly hotel in Bamburgh. Alfie saw the sea for the first and didn’t really know what to make of it. He chased the tide in and out and aquired a taste for seaweed! Went on some lovely walks with him and everyone that met him said how well behaved he was. He enjoyed Christmas day especially knocking Jenga down and running off with the baubles from the tree. Alfie doesn’t run under the tree he runs straight at it! We got his first puppy bed out today and cannot believe how much he has grown in the last few months. We can’t wait for summer and the day that he comes back from his walks when he is not covered in mud! Will put the pictures on from the river today with his muddy face and paws. Hope you’re all enjoying your puppy as much as we are.
Happy New Year love Ed and Jaime x

He decided to go and have a paddle but due to all the recent rain it was slightly deeper than he thought and went head first under the water. He then had to do little swim to get out!! He was a very wet puppy and had a mad five minutes of running around excited. Will try and put some pictures on.

He is loving his Kong stuffed with treats. We have recently tried him with some chicken which he loves! We have also trained him to sit and lie down. The lying down doesn’t always work straight away but he is getting there.

We have also booked him into some puppy classes which start on 13th December. Will let you know how they go.

The first night he cried for half an hour but since then he has slept no problems. He is a great puppy taking everything in his stride. The day after we got him he had his first visit to the vet for his injection. While other dogs seemed distressed Alfie was so relaxed and happy. When he had his consultation he laid like superman on the table and fell asleep!! Not bothered by his injection one bit. The vet is looking forward to seeing how he progresses over the coming months and loves his big paws! This week he has been out on his first walk and had his first paddle in the river. Everyone that meets Alfie says how gorgeous he is. When he meets other dogs he is pretty good and we are hoping to start a puppy socialisation class in the next couple of weeks. He loves to play out in the garden chasing the ball and he had plenty of toys to chew on. Alfie is a cheecky little monkey with a great personality and we couldn’t imagine life without him now. He has brought so much joy to us and we will keep you posted with his progression.
