Deefur; our School Dog
Deefur Misses You All!
Deefur went for a walk with Stanley who is the dog of our puppy trainer. Stanley did not come to live with Carolann until he was nearly 6 months old so he has to wear a muzzle to stop him eating everything when he's out on a walk...Deefur tried very hard to get the muzzle off so she could kiss Stanley! Stanley was very patient with Deefur!!

Photographs taken at puppy class! Our teacher Carolann came to school on Friday to talk to the whole school about how to look after Deefur at school. Thank you Carolann!
Deefur perfects ‘Fetch!’
Look how much Deefur has grown! The picture on the left was when I met her at 2 weeks old and the one of the right was taken last weekend!
Deefur and Miss Cox have been working hard practising fetch and drop...Deefur is doing well!
Deefur has moved on from using her watering can to water the garden...she’s now using the hose!!
Deefur did some acrobatics in her tunnel (coached by Miss Wheaton)
Deefur has learnt to give you both of her paws when asked :-)
Yesterday Carolann, who is a dog trainer, visited Miss Cox and Deefur at home to see how they were getting on. She couldn't believe all the things that Deefur can already do! When Deefur needs to go to the toilet she rings a set of bells on the back door so that Miss Cox can let her out. She come when called, sit, lie down and give you her paw. Carolann will be coming into school in September to do an assembly for all the children about being around a dog so that humans and Deefur are all happy and safe.
Thank you to my niece Allegra for helping me with Deefur's training...she can now 'lie down'. Thank you to Claudia (my youngest niece) for taking the video. Well done Deefur you are a very clever girl :-)
Deefur is learning how to follow instructions...we have mastered coming when called and sitting...we are almost there with lie down!
This is me having my first meal at home with Miss Cox
I am still very tiny. I weigh 4.95 Kg and I am only a little bit taller that an small coke bottle!
Deefur Comes Home!
Miss Cox collected Deefur from Essex where she had been living since she had been born. She lived with her Mummy, 2 sisters and 5 brothers. Miss Cox met with a puppy trainer before she picked Deefur up and the trainer told her that she would need to have Deefur on her lap on the way home to keep her safe and calm. Deefur did really well on her journey home especially as there was a traffic jam on the M25 (which is a very busy road). Both Deefur and Miss Cox were very pleased to be at home together
