The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

Home Alone

Well folks, I did my first out of crate stint, and you know what? It was actually pretty nice. It's true what mum & dad were trying to tell me - I can have much more fun when I'm not squished up in my crate. I was really good too. No chewing forbidden things, no stealing stuff, no barking (according to our neighbour who mum checked up with, sneaky mum!), no little "accidents", not that mum & dad were expecting any as I have been house trained for AGES. I am liking my bed being under the stairway, it's super cosy in there, and that's where I was when mum got home (though I came trotting to the door pretty fast when I heard the key turn). Mum thinks I did a bit more of a crazy greeting then when I get let out of my crate, but I was just so keen to show her that I had been a well-behaved boy.

I was watching mum fill up my Kong here. I got peanut butter & carrot today, thanks to all your good recommendations on my last post. Yummy!

Mum was determined that I wasn't going to get bored! I had my Kong as just mentioned, my Busy Buddy with a teeny smear of Marmite - I love it, dad loves it, mum hates it (so guess she won't be stealing my Busy Buddy anytime soon), & my Buster Cube with half my breakfast in it. I had wondered where the rest was when I had my brekkie.

Yep, lots of space in the kitchen to play. And a nice bowl of water wth ice cubes, excellent.

Lots of room out here to. I'm keeping an eye out for Fat Flakes, but she's probably busy scoffing her food upstairs.

Which one to choose first, decisions decisions. In the end I plumped for the Kong as the peanut butter smelt soooooooooooooooooo good.

I actually didn't even notice mum & dad had gone out. They left the radio on low which was nice, and by the time I had worked on my Kong & other toys, I was ready for naps with my stuffies. It didn't seem long at all until I heard that key turn in the door.
I think I could get used to this. It seems like a good way to get more food if nothing else!

J'étais certaine que tout irait bien. C'est vrai que tu n'es plus un bébé. Moi je suis du 14 mars 2006. Bisous, ta Faya

Hey you're making out pretty well Oscar! You're loose - you're getting fat and happy and you've got music! Time to invite friends over for a pawty next time mom is out!!! Make sure my name is on the list, okay?

Love ya lots,

Rachael said...

Good boy Oscar. Being out of the crate is a big responsibility. Looks like you handled it like a champ! oh and welcome to ruffdogs!

Pippin the flyball dog said...

Hey Oscar,

Good work on your first time loose--it's kind of like growing up (but don't let your people get lulled into a sense of security and then stop giving you your exra fun stuffed toys!

See you

Sharon said...

Hey, we've been letting Snickers try being out and this is the third time now since we got her (we've had her 1 1/2 years now). Finally, SUCCESS!! The first day, she ate a bag. The second day, she ate a tag off a piece of furniture, but no damage to the furniture. I have no idea how she got the tag which is on the underside of the furniture. Today, nothing! Just a good dog that had to pee really bad when we got home!

Boo said...

good job oscar! you've made it! i'm sure you'll like being outside. roam, oscar, roam the whole house!

wet wet licks


Joe Stains said...

any way to get more food is good news! just keep being a good boy. I am allowed to go all over the house when mom and dad are gone, but not the doofus, he is locked up!!

Scrappy said...

Congratulations on gaining some freedom.

Simba said...

Next time they leave you alone invite a few friends over and order a pizza. Just make sure you clean up before they get home.

Marvin The Dog said...

my hoooooman sister loves Marmite....she used to give me the crust of her toast which was covered in the evil stuff, I hate it!

But my hooooman sister doesn't like me much so that is why she was so generous! hoooomans eh? love Marvinxxxxx

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

You are such a good boy. You deserves the treats.

Boy n Baby

Loki said...

Buster the Wired Fox Terror said...

Nugget said...

Yay Oscar - Good Job!

Sunshade said...

I am soooooo proud of you Oscar, what a wonderful boy you are. Now, if you could just teach STINKY that..

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Chelsea said...

You did it! Good boy!

I am so proud of you.

Mama and Papa let me have free roam of the house now when they go out but, it took them a while for this to happen. I have proven to be trustworthy and so now I have my run of the house. In other words...all I ever do when they leave is sleep so nothing to worry about.


Bogart said...

I knew you'd have fun out in the open Oscar!!! I'm in for party time too with Maggie, so just let me know and I'll bring the doggie beer!


Fu Fu said...

Hey Oscar, I love a little peanut butter on my bread too. :)
