    Of when your dog was a puppy?

    With Dixie it would be the first time she barked :) She was playing with her rag toy and she was crouching down and pouncing towards it, biting it then jumping backwards. Then a bark popped out and she looked so surprised, as if the rag toy had done it! She was really cautious of it and kept looking at it sideways :)
    And when she saw herself in the mirror! I had been using it to do my jigsaw on (the only flat thing big enough) and I propped it up on the floor and she just kept barking at it (I think I have a video of that somewhere, I'm going to look for it.

    And the way she used to sleep on the bus...

    What a lovely thread!

    As I've only been lucky enough to have Sidney from a puppy I can only say about him. My favourite memory was the day after I moved to the coast and I took him to the beach for his first look at the sea!! He was around 15 weeks old and not too impressed...

    Needless to say that soon changed when his favourite foster dog Mutley showed him the ropes (sadly I heard Mutley died earlier this year at only 7 years old from cancer...he was my first offical foster dog and the one I always wished I'd kept :()

    The first day i had Bess was my favourite :)
    She sat in the corner of the couch (that she still sits in till this day) and just watched everything going on around her. My parents went out and my brother and his faincee were all talking about her (which made me very happy and show offy :p) Then I made a little bed for her in my room, and i put her in it, but everytime i went to get into bed, she would sit up and jump on my bed. So we ended up falling asleep together on the floor. :D

    The best memory i have is when i had bought my girl home and told my eldest to go take her upstairs until my other kids got back from their dads as i wanted to do a big suprise thing. They had no idea i had gone to pick up a puppy, i had just told them that i was gong to get them a present while they were at their dads that day. Well i wanted to wait until their dad went, he is not an animal lover and i didnt want the memory of the kids first glimpse of their new pup being mared! Anyway.........he went, eventually, so kids say, can we have our present now........so i call my daughter down and say will you bring the stuff down i got for the kids? Well if you could of seen the look on their faces, it was the best thing ever. They knew we were saving up for a dog, i had been telling them to put pennies in a jar for one lol, they were so shocked and happy, best moment ever!
