Perfect Puppy - Not
Now have to barricade kitchen sofa with chairs. Good that my tatty kitchen furniture is 30 years old. Had been thinking of replacing 70s pine table, glad I didn't bother. Had to remove ancient rattan bamboo chair as it must be extra tasty, despite anti-chew spray. Bought lots more toys from pet supermarket, but they don't seem to be as interesting as sticks and fir cones, today's newspaper and, of course, shoes. Puppy school going OK, but as you see there is quite a bit of room for improvement before Otto becomes the Perfect Puppy of the training manuals. Took him for his first short walk down to the duck pond today, very exciting, he thought.
