I’ve arrived! I have moved in to my new chuggyboat home. I think I like it……
It had a ready installation of new toys – on my new cosy bed under the table. I brought some of my own favourite toys with me but I found a squishy smileyface, a squishy burger, a pink fluffy squishy oinkypiggy and a squishy caterpillar. I super like the squishy caterpillar – it makes a good pillow and it waggles about when I carry it around! I also found a yummy munchybone; not like the huge bone that was here when I came to visit before – that seems to have disappeared. How miffing! Nemind though. I like this smokey one. It has my gnasher marks on it so it’s mine now. All mine!
Earlier, I got to ride in the vroomer with the Guide Dogs Teachy Hooman. We stopped in a place with green all around but she walked off and left me in the vroomer! She came back a short while later with Ma and Pa.
I got out to meet and greet and then, instead of having to go back into the cage in the back, I got to sit in the front between Ma’s back paws. I leaned my head on something and it made hooman woofings come from somewhere inside the walls of the vroomer. she pressed the thing again and stopped it though.
We went vroom to some familiar streets and, when we got out, I got to wear my brand new super smart white Guide Dog harness. I got to take Ma on her first lesson. I have a lot to teach her but it was a good first walk. I think GDMI is going to help me with the lessons. Phew! I think it all went well though; I got lots of ‘Good boy’ and ‘Good work’ and ‘Nice Teddy’! I like to hear all of those! When we got back into the vroomer again, I managed to press that button again! Snigger!
When we got back to chuggyboat, I had to have some lessons in manners for getting on and off. It seems I have to sit before each stage and wait to be told when to ‘hop on’ or ‘hop off’. I think I will learn. It is all very very new and different!
I’ve had my first dindins afloat. I think I can cope with this idea!
I’ve just watched Pa do something fascinating: He got down on his knees and opened a little door on a black cupboard. Inside it had bright red blobs and was really hot. He got a strange stick with a flat end, and he used it to scoop up some black blobs and put them inside the hot cupboard. How peculiar! I let him know I was watching by giving him a good boof on the bum with my paw! That made both Ma and Pa chuckle!
I’ve spent some time on my new bed. It is cozy and safe under the table and the bed is lovely and snuggly. I like it! I’ve also spent some time on the rug beside Ma. She sat down with me and we had some loves. I do like to be snuggled next to my cuddly hooman! Ma put a kind of spiky paw-cover thing on her front paw and it made a super massage-fuss! I really liked that and now my fur seems to be extra silky and floaty-flaggy!
