Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence. Abandoned that and the videos are now back up and running.

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

The days are getting much longer as summer approaches so Louis gets to enjoy a good stretch of the legs on Saturday and Sunday when I’m off work. I can’t remember if I’ve blogged before about Louis’s change in sleeping patterns but he now no longer insists on a walk first thing every morning and behaves like other dog owners tell me their furry friends do.

By this I mean making sure he’s facing into whichever sofa he has camped out on overnight. In Louis’ mind if he can’t see you then you can’t see him so he does this to make sure he gets extra sofa time. I’m sure this is the result of some reward structure that Suzy has set up that allows her to get a lie in every weekday. She claims she gets up a few minutes after I leave but this is most certainly a pack of lies.

This training also involves calendar recognition as Louis knows when it’s the weekend as, surprise, surprise, he wants to go out first thing on Saturday and Sunday so I don’t ever get to have a lie in! It’s more than a conspiracy.
