Time flies when you are having fun and it turns out it was 1 year ago today that I first put paws to keyboard with 1st World Dog. If you have never scrolled back that far then click here to check out my 1st ever blog where I Introduced Myself.
Things started off sporadically with the odd post here and there when something funny happened and mum & I had time to write it up… but I have to say we have got into a bit of a rhythm now.
Tuesday became Training Tip Tuesday with Training Tips 1st World Dog Style.
Donna from We Live In A Flat, who has been a wonderful help in the world of photography (note our early posts didn’t even have photos let alone funky ones with all sorts of stuff done too them) set us our My Best Photo Of The Week Challenge on a Wednesday.
And my favourite is that Friday became Foodie Friday… which I obviously have to taste test. A whole range of yummy treats are being discovered by mum and kept in 1st World Dog Recipe Book. And a big thanks to Roy & Molly’s Mum who kicked this off with the yummy pup cakes she made for the RSPCA Cupcake Fundraiser we did at training one day.
Definitely have to give a big Paws Up to the Friends of 1st World Dog who give us plenty of help and inspiration, especially with training tips. We are lucky to have some fantastic dogs and their owners who we get to train with regularly.
And thanks to all that training I write this post being Bohdi RA ET (yeah another story but mum spelt my name wrong with Dogs NSW… silly mum!) Across the last 12 months we started in the world of dog trialing and have gained our Rally Novice title (at the Sydney Royal), our Endurance Title (that was a lot of running) and most recently our Rally Advanced title. We have also started Agility trialing with some passes now in most Novice Classes but I have given mum plenty of grief with dropping bars and been nick named “One Bar Bodhi”. You can check out one of my agility runs here and there are plenty of other agility stories scattered within the blog.
Importantly 1st World Dog has given me the chance to share the fun of growing up with Toddler. At times toddler can be trying.. the thing with frogs really gets me. But all in all she is a good kid and is learning how to look after 1st World Dog through getting the food out of the containers and more recently pats and ball throwing.
And lastly we have also had fun finding all the other Dog Blogs out there… although our fav post has to go to Ruby and her City2Surf “adventure”. Ruby we love reading the mischief you get into!
A paws up to everyone who has pop by and read 1st World Dog over the past year. We hope it has made your tail wag. If you haven’t already and you enjoy reading our stories than subscribe over on the side there so you get an email when we post new stories. Or do the “like” on Facebook or “follow” on Pinterest or Instagram.
And we thought we should round off by sharing some baby photos…. ahhhh…. wasn’t I a cutie (this was also the stage I was a very good gardener).
XD Happy anniversary! What a fruitful year it has been! 🙂
Thanks Donna. Appreciate all the tips and inspiration.
What a year and what a development – love the puppy photos – Bodhi you are the cutest friend I havexx
Ah Ruby…. Keep up comments like that and I will have to speak to mum about organising a date. Xox back at ya
Ha ha – come over the Bridge? – never!!
Um…. Just thinking about it…. Nah I have never been east. Gone through tunnel as we head to the south coast but never east. There isn’t even an agility club over there that holds a trial.
Another reason not to come then. Maybe we could go for a swim in the harbour!
Get our parents to throw a stick in from the middle of the Harbour bridge and see who gets there 1st?
Do I need a passport?
Happy Blog Birthday! Your puppy pics are really cute, I bet you got away with a bit of naughtiness with those eyes, I know I did!!
I was so much hard work back then… Chewing up shoes, running away with socks, gardening…. Mum loved it!
