We have a new puppy. Zozi is her name and she is a fine Boxer puppy to keep Brin company. We refer to them as ‘BriniZozi’ as in ‘Brangelina’.
Zozi is much smaller than either of the ‘boys’ were; she is also very quiet, doesn’t like the cold, the wet or the mud. I hope she will grow out of it, but she could be a Little Missy.
Brin is being the perfect gentleman and doesn’t seem to mind if she nibbles him here and there (yes, even there)!
It’s lovely having a puppy but puppies are such hard work. They eat, poo, wee, play, sleep all day and all night. They jump on the sofa, hide under the bed, steal your scarf, and bark at the postman.
Zozi is working very hard at being a Good Dog Citizen. She sits on command, understands ‘no’ and ‘leave’ and ‘down’, although I have had to be a shouty Mummy from time to time. We have started taking her on short walks, just 10 minutes, to get her used to the collar and walking to heel. She loves going out.
And tomorrow night, we start puppy classes. We’ll see how that goes. The ‘boys’ were asked not to return to puppy class as they were too disruptive. Taking two Boxer puppies to training class at the same time was perhaps a bit ambitious. Zozi should be a doddle!
