Happy Easter! Today marks the fourth week that Roy has spent with me, and I’m caught between disbelief at how quickly the time has gone, and feeling as if I’ve had him forever. The Roy-less days seem so distant to me now, I can’t imagine a morning where my alarm going off was not accompanied by the sound of excited scrambling of puppy feet, or reading on the sofa without a warm, fluffy weight leaning on me. In four weeks Roy has grown so much, just this week he graduated from Puppy Kindergarten, which means that he’ll now be moving up to proper puppy classes, in training for his Puppy Foundation qualification. Woo!

Well done Roy!

Well done Roy!

 

Over the past four weeks Roy has experienced many firsts — first visit to the groomers, first on-lead walk, first splash in the bath, etc — and he’s taken them in his stride. He’s not a big fan of large, boisterous dogs but loves people, and people seem to love him too! Whenever we’re out on a walk, everyone stops to admire him, and cries of “How sweet! He’s so cute!” are music to Roy’s little ears.

And now for the best part of this blog post: Roy pictures!

And finally, Roy’s first attempt at getting kibble out of the Kong Wobbler. I think he did pretty well! These days he’s an expert at it, though you should see him when he’s trying to get that last bit out… that’s when the grumbling and squeals of outrage begin! Haha!

Stay tuned for more Roy goodness!
