TOBY PUPPY here...

Hello there every furry buddy...

This is just to tell you that I am rather 'pooped'!
(I don't know if you use the same word where you live, but it means...
tired!....VERY tired!
My puppy class was exhausting!
..and it was hot!
I got hosed down afterwards!

Maxmom didn't have her camera with her today, so I thought I'd tell you instead:
I did the tunnel...a few times (it's my favorite!)
and learned to "down"
I practiced my "sit" and my "come"
I did an obstacle course...actually two.
I also practiced being on a Vet's table...mmmph!

I played with my lead.
And then practiced my 'recall'!
Maxmom also fooled me because she gave me 'treats'!....
which I later discovered was actually my lunch!
(That is cheating!)....mmmph

I'm a Toby-puppy...
and I am pooped!
I think it's snooze time!
Yes it is!

A puppy's work is never done. Better rest up. You might be needed to save the world. Or at least make the world laugh!!

Pooped Toby you will soon learn humans are a bunch of tricksters.

'They' say pooped pups are good pups -

I'm not sure what 'they' mean by that -

I thought we were ALWAYS good!


Dexter said...

Puppy school is the BEST! And you got a hose down as well? Can it get any better? I bet everybody is glad to see you tired.


houndstooth said...

Whew! I'm tired just reading about it all! I think I'll join you for that nap.

I went to someone's house this morning and played with their puppy. He was a hyper little thing with a lot of excess energy. It reminded me of when Shiver was a puppy and I am so happy he's out of that stage now! I really didn't enjoy it at all.

I have a feeling your mom might be happy you're pooped, it means you'll be resting and give her some quiet time.

We have obedience classes here too (of course!) but they don't do fun things like having you run through a tunnel. They don't have you practice sitting on a vet's table either. At least not where I live.

Poor Toby! You deserve your nap, really. By the way, the patchwork behind you is lovely. Did you Mom sew it?

Martha said...

It is tiring work being a puppy Toby, so much to learn at school!
You do look very cute indeed having your nap - we hope you wake up refreshed to cause some more mischief!

oh Toby, such a good boy at class...everyday you grow bigger and bigger...such a handsome puppy!

Piappies World said...

Wow Toby!

You had a full day at training! You're doing so well and we are so proud of you. Worry not as we are sure, being a pooped pup got you lots of treats and tummy rubs.

Keep up the good work, Toby!

Toby Puppy
Learning and doing all these things is exhaugsting.. And yes, I know what pooped is.. It also means its a good time to rest up and take a nap,.

Scout and Freyja said...

Little one, you told us all about what you did and what you learned but you didn't tell us how Maxmom did! Did she learn anything new and did she remember her lessons well☺

Angus said...

Thanks for the comment this morning. Max's days of grace now being picked up on by Wilf. Somehow their paw prints interlinked.

Neeli remembers how pooped she waas after going to puppy kindergarten - so hang in there Toby. Sounds like you & your Mom have a lot of homework between school days! But it also sounds like you're having a lot of fun too!

Sweet Toby-Puppy, we swear yoo get bigger EVERY time we see yoo! We use the werd "pooped" all the time here! We larfed that yoo got hosed down after puppy-class.

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

that was very sneaky of Maxmom to give you lunch as "treats". It sounds like you did a good job at school though. We think you deserve a nice long nap!

You are growing like a weed....Meowm wants to scoop you up and hug you!

WFT Nobby said...

What an interesting puppy class, practicing the vets table and all.
I was always pooped too after class. But not enough to want to do a 'lie down' (Gail's says she thinks that is because I am not a naturally submissive dog...)
Toodle pip!

Here is the really bad part. These humans have this saying about a Tired Dog is a Good Dog - so they actually like to see the energy burned out of us. Can you imagine?
