Boris Takes Over

Hello Everypawdy
 I'm not too sure what to write as it's my first ever blog post, it's been some time since Badger Boo first introduced me, but you may have seen a bit about me on the Hoomums blog.

Badger Boo has now handed the reins over to me to update his blog, don't worry there's nothing wrong with him, now that he's approaching old age, he's 13 you know, he rarely has any Daft Adventures anymore.

Nowadays he likes to stay at home sleeping on his heat pad, pottering up and down the road and occasionally coming over the common for a nice long walk if the weather is warm enough, so that's why he's asked me to take over updating his blog

Let me introduce myself properly
My name is Boris and I'm a 7 month old Working Cocker Spaniel.
This is what I look like

Quite a stunner I think you'll agree.
 OK so I don't have Badger Boo's pretty colouring, but I have the softest shiniest black coat ever.

Apparently I have a massive intellect but zero common sense, one day mummy hopes to train me well enough to become her Assistance Dog.

At the moment Miss Lucy is my teacher at The Company of Animals and is helping mummy to teach me all sorts of neat tricks, because it exercises my brain and I just love doing things to please mummy.

This is me learning "I'm Shy" I picked this up fairly quickly, mummy taught me how to do this using a clicker and some treats, it sure is a fun way to learn stuff and it makes it easy to remember too.

This is me at one of my training sessions over in Churtsey, Miss Lucy very kindly made this video for mummy as she'd left here phone camera thingy in the car.

Now you know a bit more about me, I look forward to getting to know all of Badger Boo's friends and followers in the weeks to come.


  1. Hmmmm, I comes here to see my friend Badger Boos and there is a dogs named Boris in his place. I is an Aussie and I has a built in "stranger danger" modes so I is going to has to gets to know you betters before I is comfortable with this. So tells me Boris ... what has you done with my friend, Badger Boos? You say he is sleepings, but I wants proof of lifes before we moves forwards with this new friendships. I will be backs to see if you has responded.

  2. Massive intellect but zero common sense is exactly what my peeps accuses me of Boris...something about bonkers spaniels. Anyway welcome. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly,

  3. We look forward to getting to know you more too Boris. Lady says the same about Hailey . . . we think she just says that about a dog that is smarter than her!

  4. My older sister Katie is a lot like your brother. She takes her daily walks but they are fairly short and very slow. Bailie is the wild child at 1 yr old, and I'm the sensible dog at 8. It is my blog, but I do share sometimes with my siblings. My little sis Bailie does do most of the mischief for my posts, though.

  5. Ash the Dog says - I always enjoy meeting fellow doggies and you look a rather cool canine. Looking forward to reading about all your adventures........ #animaltales

  6. Boris you have grown into a handsome young man, good of you to let Badger Boo's paws take a break. I'm sure you'll do a brilliant job :)

  7. My Moms tells me you is hurtings and now I feels bad that I was not so friendlys with you ... I really can'ts help myself, it is part of my genes my Mom says. At first they tried to trains it out of me, but that doesn't works because it is parts of whos I am. But, I am a goods girl most of the times and I knows when it is times to be a friends and this in one of them. So sorrys you are hurting Boris ... I would come lick your wounds for your but my Moms says you lives far aways. Gets well Soon Boris so we can do this freind thing right :)
