FIRST time at Pet Expo

Mummy and Auntie Veronica drove far far away today. I stay-tayed in the back of Sunshade's car car with Sunshade. Sunshade said said to me to stay on my blankie, so I said ok ok you're the boss.

I slept slept until we got there. I saw this big big grey dog when we first walked in the door. Sunshade really loved him, she let him put his paw paw on her back, but she no let me.....

There were so many peeple, so many peeple pups, so many doggies. I walk walk good good on leash with Auntie Veronica.

so many funny funny smells,

I met met so many different breeds of doggies for the first first time!! This is a Boxing dog I think, he likes to box box I think.. I said hi hi to him, but he like like Sunshade better. I said ok ok, I like like her too.

I can't weeemember what these guys were, but they were so big big! (mum: English Mastiffs) I was brave brave tho, I said hi hi to them, mummy told me I was good good!!

I met met a lion dog,

I said said to him he looked like like Simba's daddy Mufasa,

He said said I look like like Tramp. What's a Tramp???

(Sunshade: hahaha... TOTALLY except the colours!!)

Then I saw some wittle guys. They were so wittle I had to bend bend my neck neck down to say hi hi. I was a very good good boy, I was gentle gentle.

The black and white one no like me, he growl growled and tried to bite bite my nosey, I said ok ok I'll leave. The cute wittle one with the pink leash really like like me a lot, and I like like her too.

I saw another wittle girl. Her face was cute cute, like an eggie.

She said said she's 16 weeks old, and a terrier too. I said said really really? Eggie Terrier??? I said said I'm only 19 weeks old, but my leggies are growing too fast...

Lots of peeple ask asked mummy is that a Welsh Terrier??

(mum: This is a full grown Welsh Terrier. Notice it's basically a miniature Airedale??

They range between 15"-15.5" at the withers.)

This is me me, see I still have lots of blackies down my shoulders and leggies because I'm still a baby. (Sunshade: a STINKY!)

and I am 19.5" at the withers. So I'm NO NO Welsh Terrier ok ok??

I saw saw Sunshade's boyfriend Studly Dudley. I went to say hi hi.

(Sunshade: that was not my Dudley, that was a GIRL!!)

This was another big big guy, I don't know what he is. He look look like he's mean, but he was very nice nice. (Sunshade: he's a Doberman, just like like Taz) I really like like him so I said said very lightly (Sunshade: um.. whispered) in his ear "brother, we have same same colours!"

(Sunshade: NO WONDER he walked away so fast!)

(mum: too fast for you to flirt with him??)

This is Ben Ben. He is only a month older than me me, but he's so BIG BIG...

I wanted to play play with him, so I jumped around him. (Sunshade: you can see video of this weirdo jumping around Ben on my post)

But when he came came to me, I said said WOOOOOOWOW.... you are a little too BIG BIG...

I saw saw some weird thing thing....

They smell kind of like my food food, but they MOVE MOVE..... that scare scared Jaffa..

But my big, brave sister Sunshade came over. I saw she wasn't scare scared. She just stood stood there and see see them quietly, so I thought ok ok Jaffa can do it too. I want to be brave brave just like my Sunshade.

Sunshade said said she was proud proud of me, I think she like like me a wittle. (Sunshade: I had a couple Dogcohol drinks...)

I was happy happy because Sunshade like like me, so I smile smiled!!

Sunshade took me to see see an alpaca. I no know what alpaca is, but I said said ok ok let's go. She said said we had to be quiet and gentle, so I said ok ok, I'll just do what you do do.

See, this is the big big guy inside inside. I wonder how he can stretch his leggies?

Peeple asked mummy why her Airedales were so calm calm, even the puppy (that's ME ME). And mummy said said it's part my mommy/daddy/uncles/aunts/grandpas/grandmas (Sunshade: he meant GENETICS..), and part having a calm calm older sister - MY Sunshade! (Sunshade: can I have your dinner tonight as my reward??)

Just before we go go out the door, I saw a Balto,

(Sunshade: yes, he watches way too many Disney cartoons, just like
somebody else....)

(mum: this dog was part wolf)

Balto Balto!!!!

Sunshade and me run run on the grass for a wittle bit. We played chase chase, you can see me me running on Sunshade's post.

Before going in the car car, mummy said said go pee pee Jaffa...

I said said no problemo!!

(mum: I was very impressed with how Jaffa behaved. He greeted every dog with proper manners, not jumping up, not hyper, and walked nicely on leash. His tail was up almost the entire time we were there with the only exception being when he first saw the chickens. )

You look like you had tonnes of fun at the Expo. You are getting so big now! That Boxing doggie was gorgeous. Reminded me of Ben, my grandma and grandpa's doggie!

Bogart said...

Jaffa you're SUCH a handsome boy - don't worry about those chickens, they're much less scary when they're in a bowl...


Toby said...

Looks like you had lots of fun Jaffa and well done for being such a good boy! You probably behaved better than I would have! I'm just too excitable (so my mum tells me!)


Maggie said...

You behaved unbelievably well around all those people and doggies! Well done Jaffa! You're being exposed to so many fun new experiences!

Love ya lots,

Fu Fu said...

Hey Jaffa, the Pet Expo looks fun and seems that many doggies like you. :)
Does the boxer dog really box box?

Nanook The Newfoundland said...

don't feel bad jaffa! I am TERRIFIED of chickens. There is one that lives on my street and I don't like walking in that direction because it is so scary. It STARES at me.

Hello Jaffa
Your biological auntie told me you met a Bullie at the pet expo and I immediately went to check her out.

She is so beautiful and of course all the other doggies were too (handsome for the males).

Easter is not a good time for us bullies as we do have egg shape faces and eggs are link to Easter.
