Breton is 8 Months Old Today!

Hi there! It's me, Breton. My human got me up this morning and before I knew it was having me sit-stay and down-stay all over the living room while flashing that thing at me that she puts in front of her face. It's a good thing she had cookies to keep me focused cause other wise, that mean looking kitty sure looked like a good chew toy. My other human picked me up and weighed me on the scale and both humans were laughing because now I "weigh" only two pounds less than my foster brother, Bentley. Here's an update about this month:
  • I weigh 48 pounds!
  • They call me a chew monger cause I'm growing more teeth at the back of my mouth. My bone is so soothing.
  • My working vest has been adjusted twice to fit me. Don't you just hate it when your vest straps are riding up your chest?

Today is a party cause I get to go back to the Hank's for vacation! I'm so excited to see them. Mom and Dad are excited too, but I'm not sure why. Anyway, catch you later!

An Update from the Nova Scotia Puppies

“See our Vest”
By Shannon Northcott
Originally: Beauty and the Beast – “Be our Guest”
By Walt Disney

See our Vest! See our Vest!
Put our service to the test
Strap a jacket around our chest
And we will do our very best

Treats du jour
Watch that curb
Our vest means, do not disturb

We are learning
Don’t believe us? Ask our puppy raiser, so discerning
We can sit, we can down
After all we are renown, the best in town

Verbal praise
Loose leash walk
Wait and forward, around the block

We’re not gloomy or complaining
In fact, we are entertaining
We love to play and do tricks
Especially when we intermix

8 Months old and behold
Breton, Sydney, Sable, Clipper still going two-fold
And uphold, Schooner, Rigger, Digby are wonderfully controlled

See our Vest! See our Vest! See our Vest!
Get your worries off your chest
Our Command is your request
And we are doing our very best
For your safety and your ease
We do indeed, aim to please

Life, it is so unnerving
For a puppy who is not serving
We strive to leave it, stay and come for someone
So deserving

Independence, companionship
Guidance, freedom and protection
We work for your affection

Alas, we are yearning class by class, one by one
Until they sing, “you’ve earned your wings”
And all will raise their cups
But for now, we keep on learning as we are still pups!

See our Vest!
See our Vest!
See our Vest!
