Cracker Dog Special - the year in review

Just a quick reminder that it's Mango Minster competition week (think Crufts, but in cyberspace, and much more serious). As I am entered into the 'Insane Cracker Dog' category,  I thought it timely to remind you of my credentials. An impressive set of achievements for a pup not yet quite one year old, I'm sure you'll agree. And not even a mention of the cashmere ex-sweater...

(Cracker dog voting is on Friday!)

Thinking back over the past year's activities...

Indications of recklessness at six weeks old

More early promise - attacking the camera strap

A good idea to jump all over an Akita/Rottweiler cross, no?

Dealing with irritating dachshunds at puppy class

Let's not forget the 'blue poo incident'

These very long books so need shortening, don't they?

In for the hamster kill

Ignoring the red card

You can't make an omelette without breaking egg boxes

Some things in life are just beyond reach

How to stop your human going out to work

Cracker dog time with a friendly Dutchman

I don't think Bunty was REALLY scared, was she?

Another cracker dog sleeping pose

And finally: in hot water once again, just last week

Yep, it's been quite a year.....


  1. Bertie - Friday is in the calendar.

  2. Oh gosh, you are a cracker pup, alright!
