Silky and I have quite similar tastes in toys. This is good but at the same time this could be a bit of a problem.
Recently she always takes my Christmassy handbag shaped toy. I know we should share all our toys but she always takes it from me. I quite like it too so I want to play with it don’t I? But I am a good big sister so this morning I gave up the toy for her and took the small pink octopus instead, but immediately she took it from me.
And then, I took the tug rope to play with mummy but she suddenly appeared and tried to take it from me. Then we started usual morning play fighting.
In the evening mummy and daddy took Silky to the vet for her second vaccination. I asked Silky how it was. She said that the last time the lady vet gave her sweetie and while she was enjoying it the vet stabbed the needle in her. But today the man vet didn’t give her anything but just stabbed the needle in her. Also the worming tablet had a nasty taste and the vet held her head and pushed it into her mouth. On her way home she felt sick but tried to hold it in, but when mummy noticed that Silky was not feeling well, Silky couldn’t hold anymore and puked...on mummy’s clothes. Oh dear...
Anyway Silky has been with us for more than 2 weeks and she had been good at night. When mummy, daddy and I went upstairs at bedtime, Silky used to go to her bed quietly. However, the other day, daddy sang for her at night. She loved it and since then she cries when we go upstairs at night. Daddy, what have you done? Maybe you should keep singing until she falls asleep every night.
It seems Silky likes singing and her most favourite song at the moment is “Heigh-ho- Snow white and the seven dwarfs”. By the way, my favourite song is “Who let the dogs out”.

We spent the first Christmas with Silky at nanny Joan's and granddaddy Mick’s. I wore my special Christmas outfit which my mummy and daddy had made for the Sheltie Christmas party. This outfit is really special because all those star lights and when they light it is very sparkly and pretty.
Silky wore a Christmas outfit too, which I passed on to her from lasy year. She looks absolutely gorgeous in red doesn’t she?
I also wore the outfits which I had chosen the other day, and I wore this black velvety cape with pompom ribbon too. This is a very warm cape so it was perfect on the very cold Christmas day to go out.
We opened all our presents. Look what we got!!
Silky and I had a loads of pressies didn’t we? Toys, lead, harness and treats. Everything is ours but mummy put all the treats in the cupboard where Silky and I cannot reach. It is not fair is it?
I am not happy about that, but still we got some cool toys too. Especially, the fluffy green and yellow toy which was in Silky’s stocking it is fabulous!! It stretches and shrinks and even makes a squeaky noise! I love it!! It seems Silky loves the Christmassy handbag shape toy which was for me. Anyway we share all our toys so it doesn’t matter does it?
After Christmas dinner and everything Silky and I were knackered and fell asleep. Mummy said Silky and I were sleeping all the way home too. I wonder why we were so tired?
Today, mummy, daddy, Silky and I all felt a bit lazy and had a lovely relaxing day. Daddy took us to the park in the afternoon by car and I ran a lot to burn all those calories from Christmas feast. I must keep eye on my shape mustn’t I? Silky is lucky because she is still baby.
Silky also wanted to run but she had to stay in mummy’s arms. Still she saw a few doggies and people and it seemed she was tired again.
Daddy and Silky are having nap-nap now. Daddy said he would cook tonight so I am going to help him. Daddy!! when are you wake up? Shall I start peeling carrost?

We had a few play-fight as usual and it has become our daily habit now. Most times Silky starts so I have to accept the challenge as her big sister. This morning, I was in mood for fighting so I challenged her to a play-fight but she wasn’t so keen. Hmmm...it is a bit selfish of her isn’t it? I always accept her challenge but she doesn’t, but I cannot force her. What can I do then???
Silky’s favourite small pink octopus caught my eye. I picked it up and squeaked it. Sure enough Silky came to take the octopus and we started.
We have a few rules such as “Do not disturb when one of us wants to drink” , “Do not keep attacking when Silky runs under the table or in the bed” “Just watch and wait when Silky needs pee-pee”, and so on. Also Silky has her own favourite way of attacking where she goes under the table and aims at me and then dashes at me. When she does this I wait for her and in the middle of the room we tackle each other. There are plenty more rules which Silky and I have established and our play-fights have become more professional day by day.
Silky went out with mummy to see the high-street area. I was waiting for them at home and when they came back I asked Silky how it was. She said that she had seen traffic, people, doggies and shops and also she felt very the strong north wind. Silky also said that some people smiled at her. One strange woman asked mummy if Silky was an Alsatian. Now Silky is wondering if she is that big.
We had quite a wild play-fight match after lunch-lunch. Some people might think we hate each other so we decided to have a friendly photo of us taken. And then we parted to have a nice afternoon nap-nap. Silky went to her daytime bed as usual and I was going to my own bed. When I walked towards my bed I passed Silky’s crate. Hmmm...Why don’t I sleep in there? It was mine originally and it is quite confortable sleeping in there.

I had a “play fight” with Silky this morning. It has been getting longer and longer every time and we had been play-fighting for about 30 minutes this time. We had short breaks now and again but hardly stopped, and to my surprise Silky never got tired. So I had to get along with Silky as her big sister didn’t I?
After my walkies I asked mummy if I could do some dressing up because I wanted to think what I would wear on Christmas day. I know mummy and daddy had made me an fabulous Christmas outfit, but I want to change my outfits every few hours don’t I? That is what young girls do isn’t it?
I looked though my wardrobe but I hadn’t bought new outfits recently so it was a bit difficult. I tried this and that and in the end I narrowed them to a few outfits. I will decide which one but hold on...I could wear all of them couldn’t I? I could even wear something from my old collection. Daddy will drive us to nanny Joan’s so it will be OK for me to take my pink suitcase amount of outfits won’t it?
Now, I must sort Silky’s outfit out.
Silky is becoming prettier day by day. She will be quite a looker in no time. Silky is very good at “Sit” and the way she sits is quite pretty too, just like when I was a little puppy girl.

It was still all white outside. Mummy and daddy took me and Silky to the park yesterday and it was our first family outing. Silky was nice and cosy in her red bag while I had to walk on the cold snowy pavement with mummy and daddy. Silky was sometimes moaning in the bag but when we got home she went back to the bag and tried to sleep in there. I wish I was smaller and could fit in the bag too.
Today mummy let Silky and me play in the garden for a little while. To tell you the truth I told Silky off very badly last night and I was a bit worried if Silky didn’t want to play with me anymore. Actually, I tried to play with her after breakie but she didn’t want to. It was not my fault but daddy’s. Daddy let Silky lick his face in front of me. It was as if they were ignoring my existence and so I just did it. Mummy told daddy how to treat “Top dog” which is ME and daddy was sorry for me and Silky both.
Anyway, to my relief in the garden we played a lot. Silky was not so keen but I guess when we do this “play fight” inside it is warm and the floor is flat, so maybe it is much easier for her to move. And besides there are much more interesting things outside aren’t there?
After this playing time in the garden mummy was going to take Silky back in the house but she decided to take Silky for a little walk too. We walked around the area for my toilet and went home.
On the way home I met Mrs Katy the Yorkie. She greeted me and then noticed Silky in the red bag. What do you think she said? She said that Silky looked like a little Meerkat. Mummy and I looked at Silky. You know what? She did look like a Meerkat because she tried to poke her head out but there was a net on top of the bag to prevent Silky to pop out.
Mummy and I understood why daddy fell in love with Silky on the day we went to see her. Daddy loves meerkat and he wishes he could have them as his pet.
When we got home mummy let Silky out of the bag but again she wanted to go back in. It must be very cosy in there.

When I woke up in the morning everything outside was white. We were going to the park today but daddy said the roads were a bit too dangerous so we went to play in the garden with Silky.
At first Silky was sniffing the ground and then she started bouncing around like a rabbit so I decided to chase here.
It was great fun so we could not stop.
In the end Silky got tired and she should not get too cold should she ?
After we had lunch lunch and a good nap nap Silky had her first bath. She is very fluffy now and smells like summer meadows, I can't stop sniffing her now.

Mummy took Silky to the garden just after she woke up because mummy was sure Silky would want to do wee-wee. Silky played a bit in the garden but didn’t show any sign of wee-wee so mummy took her back in because it wasn’t a really warm day. Then she ran to the pad and did wee-wee. Maybe you should take newspaper with you next time, mummy.
After this, mummy took me to the park. At first the weather was OK but then it suddenly started snowing. It got worse very quickly and mummy and I couldn’t see very far. Mummy tried to walk quickly but I didn’t understand what was going on and sat down. Mummy came back to me and put the lead on and then I felt secure. After a while snow stopped and then again it started. When we got home it was white everywhere.
We had lunch-lunch together and played with Silky a bit. Sometimes it is OK to play with her but sometimes I just get annoyed. Mummy and daddy tell me to be gentle but when I get irritated I cannot stop myself. Anyway Silky is very strong so she doesn’t seem to care about my snapping...well I hope she doesn’t. Still we share our toys and lick each others bowls after every meal. Also I don’t really mind Silky sleeping in my bed. I just need more time to get used to this whole Silky environment.
When I was a little puppy girl mummy always carried me and daddy would say “She is not a baby, you know” or “You can only do that when she is a puppy”. Daddy was silly wasn’t he? I am a perfect lap dog now. I even perch on daddy’s shoulder when he is sitting on the sofa to lick his face. Mummy wants Silky to be a lap dog too and she already started to put Silky on her lap and Silky seems to like it. But mummy cannot do it all the time because I am the top dog and mummy wants to respect my feeling.
Today Silky was very active in the afternoon and didn’t have a nap-nap easily. When mummy put Silky on mummy ‘s lap she was fairly quiet and when mummy put her on the floor she just want to get on mummy’s lap or on the sofa. But finally Silky fell asleep and I could have a quiet nap-nap.

This morning Silky and I played tug after daddy left home. When I play tug with mummy or daddy I am quite strong but today I always let Silky win because she is only a baby. But it wasn’t very fun to be beaten every time so I got reluctant soon but then mummy joined us and I liked it.
When Silky had enough she ran to my bed and jumped in.
I wanted to have a nice nap-nap too but if she was there what could I do? I didn’t know what to do so I lay down beside my bed. Mummy told me to join her because it was my bed and I didn’t have to hand up my right to the bed.
So I went in and lay down in the bed. When mummy was near me I felt OK but once mummy left me I didn’t feel comfortable in the bed with Silky, besides Silky tossed and turned in her sleep. I love sleeping with mummy and daddy but I am not used to sleeping with Silky am I. Mummy understood me and she moved Silky to her bed.
It has been raining today so mummy took me around the block for a short walk. When we got home Silky was half asleep but she got excited soon, so we played again. This time each of us played with mummy so I think mummy is quite tired now. When Silky got tired she went to my bed again. Mummy put me in the bed too but well...I cannot do this yet. Mummy told me to stay in my bed and took Silky to her crate. But she came out and now she is sleeping in my second bed downstairs which is under the coffee table.
Silky loves most of my toys. I showed her my small pink octopus last night and she fell in love with it. I have a big pink octopus too so I suppose she can have it.
Daddy, please tell mummy to get more toys when she goes to Japan.

Mummy took me and Silky to the garden before my lunch time walk. At first mummy and I played with the green ball and then when Silky started running I don’t know why but I felt like playing with Silky a little bit and somehow I enjoyed it.
When mummy thought that Silky had enough playing she tried to put her in the red bag to take her home, but it looked very difficult. Silky wriggled a lot and bit mummy’s hair. Finally mummy put Silky in the bag but soon Silky jumped out...they repeated this for a while and I was observing this, thinking “ I wasn’t like that”. Surly not. But mummy said I had been as noisy as Silky when I wanted to get attention. I don’t believe that.
When mummy vacuumed the house she put Silky and me inside the baby gate. Why me too? It is quite offensive for me as I am a grown-up doggie. But later I understood because mummy said she could hear Silky crying when she was vacuuming upstairs. Mummy wanted me to keep Silky’s company. I can think about it in future because playing with her was quite OK today.
After my lunch time walkies we had lunch-lunch together. Silky had a proper meal lunch but mine was a couple of small doggie biscuits so I was watching Silky eating. Maybe I was staring at Silky so mummy gave me a piece of fish jerky which Silky’s breeder had given to us. I liked it very much so I took it and ran. When I was savouring this fish jerky Silky came to me and took it from me!! I was just watching it because I couldn’t believe what she had done to me. But before I felt upset mummy gave me another piece so I didn’t mind. Anyway I use Silky’s puppy bone because it tastes better than mine and Silky doesn’t mind. Sisters should share things shouldn’t they?
After lunch-lunch I normally had a long sleep before Silky came into my life. But she is normally full of beans after lunch-lunch so I cannot have a quiet nap-nap anymore. It is OK if she doesn’t invade my space, but still it is early days for me so if she comes too close to me when I want to have a rest, I couldn’t stop myself from showing my scary face to her. But still we had a lovely nap-nap together.
It is Tuesday and I was going to do my tricky Tuesday. I can do “Bang!!” quite perfectly now so mummy and I were thinking about doing this. But mummy said the moment Silky and I played together in the garden was much more worth showing than doing some trick.
