Wow! I am really excited at being allowed to write my first ever post on mum's blog! (but then, I am really excited about everything, being a) a dog and b) only 12 weeks old).
Today was actually Quite A Boring Day as mum was at college, L was at school and dad was at work, so I was Stuck In My Crate. This is essentially unfair because Ted (my big brother) has the run of our room when everyone is out and a choice of three different beds to sleep in.
I weed in the crate to make my point and then did a poo on the mat for good measure when I was let out (it was raining outside).
So I haven't got very much to say for today- hopefully tomorrow will be a a more exciting day.

Wow! It has been a more exciting day! Loads of stuff happened.
In the morning I went for a walk down the lane with mum and Ted on my new extendable lead. I am now very brave about cars (they were very frightening to start off with) and I just sit down and watch them as they go past and don't wobble too much.
We met a dog in a coat called Teddy (he was nothing like my Teddy). He growled at me so I woofed at him. Then we met another dog called Meg who snapped at Ted so I growled at her my biggest bestest fiercest growl. And finally we met our next door neighbour dog who is called Milly and she didn't growl or bark. We sniffed noses and wagged tails so I think we will probably be friends.
I got Soaked walking because the road surface was wet and I am only a few inches tall. Still, I was careful to shake all the wet mud, twigs and leaves off in the house when we got back, getting a goodly percentage of it on the walls.
I had a nice time running up the stairs when the coast was clear and stealing the small socks mum keeps tucked into the very bottom of her running shoes. She thinks I don't know they are there but a dog can always locate a sock by the orange mist coming off it.
I took one of the socks into the garden and chewed it underneath the bird table, then the birds came and dropped some seeds on the floor for me and I forgot all about the sock. By the time Mum found it it rather wet and dirty.
I played with all mum's patients, they were very encouraging when I bounced and licked them, so I made sure I did plenty of that. Apparently I am now famous because my photo has been texted all round the world (whatever that means).
Later on I gave mum heart failure by squeezing under the gate and taking myself off for a nice walk down the lane. I don't really understand why but I got into Quite A Lot Of Trouble for doing that- even Ted looked disapproving when I was returned to the house. But he was probably just jealous that I'd been out and he hadn't.
I rounded off the day by biting L's toes, unravelling a scarf mum is knitting for someone for Christmas, shredding one of our toys, getting a ball of fluff stuck in my throat and doing a poo in the sitting room.
All in all a Good Day.

Wow! It's completely pouring with rain here today! And so windy I think I might be turned into a kite if I went outside, so I have remained indoors with Teddy. Our fire broke yesterday so we have blankets on all our beds to keep us warm and mum even gave us a piece of Cleo's fish this morning. Cleo wasn't pleased. I liked it so much I rushed into her room and helped myself to some more. Mum was furious with me but I don't know why seen as she'd just given me some herself.
Anyway, mum had a patient this morning and dad was out at a running competition, so I decided (in view of the rain) that it would be much more comfortable to do my morning toilette in the sitting room and accordingly left a poo trail and quite a few wees round the Christmas Tree. I also found a tissue wedged down the side of a sofa and entertained myself for a while by ripping it into Very Small Pieces and distributing bits of it all round the house.
I could tell Dad enjoyed this by how much excited yelling he did when he discovered it. He also told mum all about it so he must have found it Very Funny Indeed.
We are going to Dylan's house for Christmas. All my doggy cousins will be there, including Ember, who seems Enormous to me being a black lab. I haven't met her yet so I expect I'll have my tail tucked under my bottom to start off with. I hope she likes puppies and will want to play. If not Dylan will have to do. Last time I won all our fights which is embarrasing for him because he is a boy but good for me because I am a Jack Russell and we don't take prisoners. I'm also going to meet Lucie M over crimble- she is a Cocker x Lab Puppy and a girl too, so I expect we will be able to have lots of fun together, which is what life is all about, isn't it?
Ahh, such a busy social time!
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas too,
