I’m going to write a little bit more about my puppyhood today.
As I mentioned in my previous episode I liked playing with something different like doggie food. Of course I liked doggie toys but it didn’t have to be special doggie toys in those days. You know, everything was intriguing for me. For example, I liked a cat toy because pulling its string was very interesting, I liked balloons because pulling its knot was fun and thrilling, and also I liked shoe laces because it had this tiny plastic thingy at the end which was comfortable to chew.
What else??? Oh yes, when I could get a toilet roll I could spend hours on it!!
When I was alone at home I tried to find something fun to play with. But what I thought it was fun wasn’t always “fun” for mummy and daddy. It was “naughty” for them. How was I suppose to know??? I was only a little puppy girl.
Lots of people might know about the incident when I tore the letters to pieces while mummy was out. Mummy told me off but the postman gave them to me didn’t he?
A week after that, when mummy was out I found a tiny bit of piece coming out of the carpet. I pulled it and it came out and out, and it seemed endless. I was excited and thought I should try until it finished. However, how hard I tried it didn’t finish, I got tired and fell asleep. Mummy couldn’t say a word when she saw the extreme long noodle at the door.
After these incidents I don’t remember if I did anything that badly naughty anymore. Maybe only a few tiny things such as chewing mummy’s sandals, making a hole in daddy’s shorts, pulling bits from a new bathmat, tearing newspaper and so on...you know, that kind of trivial thing. But mind you, they were always just fun for me. I never meant to be a naughty little puppy girl.
Actually I was getting quite a good puppy girl and even helped daddy at work one day. While he was dealing with some paper work I was sorting things out at the warehouse. Daddy appreciated my help, didn’t you daddy?
I have memorable moments as well, such as my first holiday without mummy and daddy. It was when I was about 5 months old at my nanny Joan and granddaddy Mick’s house. It was awesome!! They took me everywhere by their car, buses and trains, and also I met lots of their friends. I even made doggie friends there!!
My first dressing-up was for Halloween, and also I wore this red top and pink ribbons for my first Christmas.
Oh, come to think of it, around this first Christmas time I had my first bad tummy ache and it lasted for weeks. I lost weight and mummy and daddy were very worried.
I was very curious what it was when I saw the first snow, and I was overwhelmed when I went to the sea for the first time.
When I was a little puppy girl everything was new, fun and thrilling. Many things I did sometimes looked naughty but hmmm...how should I put this? Yes, they were like experiments to be a clever girl.
