Because Spud and his classmates finished their exams last week, this week they had a Christmas party! The lower class, or remedials were also invited.
Well we had a chuffin' smashing time, there were games to be played, trouble to get into, and best of all Father Christmas arrived!
To begin with we had a game of musical chairs, which Spud finished last, or went out first. Afterwards I thought we maybe could have tried harder, by shoving people out of the way. Next game
I'm ashamed to admit I haven't been updating Spud's blog, or his website, for yonks.
You can keep up with the little bugger's exploits on Facebook or Twitter though.
Well looking back the last post I made was to announce Spud had passed his puppy class!

Spud's only gone and graduated his puppy school with flying colours.

Anyway now he has no excuse, he's got full access to all the house
Spud's being an absolute joy these past few days. Obviously like any puppy he's had his moments of being a little pest, but we're having no trouble with his basic training.
Top of the list is house training, I really have no patience for dirty messes around the house. Fortunately even though Spud is only very young (9 weeks) he's doing remarkably well potty-wise. We've
