Dad’s been at home today trying to catch up on paperwork and other boring things, I decided to help by flopping on his lap so he couldn’t move 🐶 #helpfulpuppy

I concluded my first week as workshop dog by ‘helping’ my pawrents finish off a trade order and having a little romp in the autumn leaves!

Watching @david_stephenson_furniture working from the comfort of my bed while casually chewing on my Nylabone. Being a workshop dog is such hard work! 🐶

Ok, instafam...my pawrents’ neighbour has just told them I bark all the time when I’m left (no more than 4 hours at a time). It’s been 9 weeks and they’ve only just said despite them asking when they first started leaving me...and them saying I was fine! Any thoughts on reducing separation anxiety?

Today I was a cultured puppy on our visit to Winchester. We had a wander around the city centre and popped into @petpantrywinchester, then we walked down to the cathedral and along the river where we found some Roman wall!

Mum and dad took me to @petsathomeuk to weigh me...I’m about 9.5kg now! (Its approximate because I wouldn’t sit still on the scales...)

Today I had my first full day as workshop dog with @david_stephenson_furniture! Dad cleared out the kitchen and put in a baby gate so I have a den and I spent most of the day curled up in there...but got very excited whenever anyone new came by!

And this is today! Mum and dad bought me a new ‘extreme’ @nylabone to withstand my enormously strong jaws. Now I’ve got the hang of bones, I love them!

I wasn’t very sure about all the costumed children out and about tonight...I got very worried and kept trying to charge up to them! Since then I’ve been zooming around the house and getting a bit bitey but now I’m calm and snoozy...

Tonight, Matthew, I’ll be...a parrot! Yep, I’ve decided that the shoulder is the best perch for a puppy this evening while watching #liveandletdie with the pawrents.

Lunchtime walk because I didn’t fancy getting cold toes in the frost this morning ❄️

Dad’s gone off to Exeter for the day so mum and I are watching #bigbangtheory. It’s very early though so I’m curled up and watching half asleep 😴😴

Mum says I’m going to have to travel in a crate in the car from now on because I keep chewing through my leads and harnesses on journeys...she’s off to find a bed for the car crate though so it won’t be too bad!

All tuckered out after a very busy day of playing, running, digging, scaring mum with snails, training and napping. I’m in situ for the evening now!

I’ve been out and had a gallop with Hugo the Frenchie, had a weigh in at the vets (8.6kg!!) and now I’m getting to grips with this “rug” thing...am I doing it right?

Time to give my new ball some lovin’ in my favourite chair! (It’s been covered with a blanket because I keep jumping on it with muddy paws...) I chose the ball myself while mum wasn’t paying attention in @petsathomeuk !

much better weather for an off lead gallop today! Mum thinks I’m much better behaved off the lead and I always come when I’m called!
