My Miniature Poodle Puppy!!!

Yay! On Sunday the 22 of August we got the cutest little black miniature poodle puppy!
It's a boy, he's called Nero and he is really cute and he is 10 weeks old! Nero in Italian means black!
It's really hard to get nice photos of him as hes always moving around!

The black blur is Nero!

Ok so we got a new puppy because I want to do agility and Luigi likes sleeping.

So on Sunday we woke up and went for a run on the beach with Dad and Luigi when we got home Mum said that she had got an email from a breeder we contacted and she had 2 little boys left, so we phoned her up and asked whether Luigi and the puppy would fight and she said as long as we did not get a female it would be ok. We also asked about agility and she said she had a really playful puppy and a quiet one. We said we would go and see them, The playful one had a white bib on his chest.

So we went to see them, but quite soon we started to think the little one was really playful and liked to be with us more so we said we would buy the little not so quiet one (he is smaller than his brother) and would pick him up the next day (Monday) that gave us time to pick up his stuff.

But when we got home we thought why not get him today? So we went back and got him!

The breeder had said that the puppy (Nero) had been more playful than with anybody who had gone round and that he seemed to really like us! She also said that me and my brother handled the puppy's well and respectfully which was really nice!

Nero was not sick in the car and when we got home we played in the garden for a while then put in his pen to sleep.

He was really good on his first night and (I was sleeping with him) only woke me up at 3 o clock to out-side. Nero is quite well toilet trained and we have only had about 5 accidents so far.

Luigi is not so keen on him he thinks he should go home now but him and Nero played togther quite a bit, have a look at this video to see them playing.

Nero is settling in really well and Loves people, we took him to the vets on monday to get his second jab so he can go on walks in a weeks time, he was good when they stuck the needle in him!

See what Luigi thinks on My-humans.

Luigi and Me on A Young Kennel Club Training Camp

Hi, sorry i have not posted for awhile but loads has been going on.

This post is about going on a YKC (Young Kennel Club) week training camp.

Ok so it was brilliant, I really enjoyed it, I'm not so sure about Luigi but anyway.

I was really nervous about going, the evening entertainment did not sound like my kind of thing, which was things like talent night, world cup games and treasure hunts.

So when I got there I was in a team (green) and all the evening entertainment you did with your team!
In the morning and after-noon we did training with your dog I was doing Agility, Heel Work to Music (dancing with your
dog) Handling, Good citizen dog scheme - how well behaved is your dog (Luigi got his bronze) and Obedience.

Luigi was well behaved but did not like it that much.

There was always something to do and it was really good.

Our team did well in the team games and won Talent Night (music was
Let Me Entertain You) and World Cup Games (we were Australia)
On the last day There was Team Rallies where there where events which where

  1. Agility Cricket: dogs from team jump and other teams dog doing the dog walk (Luigi did not take part)
  2. In The Dark: 3 team members from each team are blind-folded and with there dog on a lead walk round a course which the team leader's direct them round, who ever got all 3 members round wins. (Luigi and I did take part in this and our team came second (: )
  3. Recall Race: 3 dogs from each team race against different team's dogs race each other fastest wins and goes into next heat (Luigi and did not take part)
  4. Temptation Ally: 3 members from each team race against another team and call there dogs through an ally of treats, toys food and other tasty stuff (Luigi and I did this one and to our team won the first heat then Luigi ran out of arena to find mum and we lost):
Most important is to cheer on your team if your watching.
I really hope this make's you come along to camp next year, I will see you there as I'm going to.

Hi to any members from Adam's Almighty Airedale team, and any one who
went to camp to.
