hello, it is Felix, the intelligent blogging dog.
My sister is involved in a community called Cool Dog Group on Facebook. She says that this is where fellow dog lovers, like herself, can post pictures of their dogs. She says I have been a hit, and I now have the confidence to blog.
My brother and sister are now back at their respective schools, so I thought it would be appropriate to discuss my schooling experiences.
I started school 1 year ago. My sister took me to a very strange looking female with a monotonal voice. She assumed I was unintelligent, which is utterly untrue, so I sat in the water bowl until it was over.
Then mother decided to take me to a new puppy school. Nobody likes moving schools, dogs included. Whilst this school, which they called Puppy School (oh please, I am not a Puppy I am a Dog), was a lot better than the other school, they put be in the Beginners class. Just because I refused to sit, didn’t mean I CAN’T sit, I just didn’t want to. For gods sake, we were on a MUDDY OVAL and I have WHITE FUR! So I just ate the mud, peed in the water bowl and took on buff looking dogs instead.
As you could assume, my favourite part of this ‘Puppy School’ was home time. I would help my mother steer us home (she didn’t enjoy that, but I did) and then jump into my sisters arms and get cuddles.
I eventually learnt how to sit, down and go. My Aunty taught me that, and I listened because I actually liked her.
I guess you could use my schooling experiences as an example of the homeschool vs school school debate (I am just going to drop the Puppy bit). It may depend on the individual as to who is best. I preffered to learn in a more relaxed, clean and loving environment, but the other dogs I met prefered the public and intense schooling environment.
If my sister ever gets a dog, I will tell him of my life and experiences. I am sure that she would home school him too, as she knows how well it worked for me.
Please enjoy a photo of me in a school themed tie. At the time of this photo, I thought it was humorous that I looked like my brother. He resembles a rat too…
