I am Toby

Hi there! My name is Toby. I'm 3 parts Poodle, 1 part Shih Tzu and all brown fur. I live with Daddy John, Mommy Michele and Mommy's sister Crystal. Daddy and Mommy absolutely adore me, although I don't quite know what to think when Daddy calls me '3 black dots in a sea of brown'. I think it's a reference to my black eyes and big black nose. Welcome to my little blog. I'll try to update it as often as possible to keep your little doggy paws out of mischief. Woof!

Puppy School!

I got to go to school last week. My first lesson with my new friends. I turned up late and was quite shy, as the other kids have already integrated among each other. School's particularly hard to find, as it's located in some greeny spot in Albert Park. Even Daddy, being the intrepid traveller he is, found it hard to navigate the area. Funnily enough, Mommy - who's more comfortable lazying in bed with a hazelnut meringue and a DVD - found the spot. I was tagging along and got quite flustered. It was so hot that day!

But i'm a friendly one. I've no problems with other animals or human beings. Daddy and Mommy are both outgoing people, and they sure didn't buy me to cuddle up in front of the fire!

For some strange reason, all of us found this large drain cover really fascinating. I have bad memories of covers. 2 months ago, on my very first Big Day Out, my tiny paws fell through the gaps in a cover twice this size. I was flapping my legs in the air and couldn't get out until Mommy gently picked me up. Let's just say i'm traumatised. It took a fair bit of coaxing from Mommy for me to cautiously approach this monster.

We also got to meet the seniors in Advanced Dog Training classes. These dogs are so old and calm! I love to run around them in circles without inhibitions while their well-trained minds tell themselves not to waste too much time with these freshies. Oh how i love being young! No pressure!

A black goose found my sexy blue top relatively attractive. I was more interested in the dirt! Perhaps there could be tasty truffles to be found! Toby, the first truffle-sniffing Poodle cross Shit-tsu! Woof!
