First Day at School

How many of you remember your first day at school? Raise your paw if you do.  Well mine was just this past Saturday.  Mommy and daddy tried to get me excited about it all but I was a bit unsure.

I am starting to put some pieces together; getting in the car does not always mean we are headed to the park.

So we arrive at this new place in Nashville that I will also refer to as "a den of terror."  I am herded inside where I am greeted by this very outgoing little dog named Copper.  He seemed harmless enough and I thought I must be assigned to a small class for the gifted and talented puppies.  But then I am carried by daddy down to this other area where all "you know what" breaks lose.

Puppies everywhere!!  Some liked the front of me...others seemed to want to know what my fluffy butt smelled like.  How rude!  It was obvious that some in the class were not that gifted so now I am realizing I am in this class with ALL of these pups.  UGH!  Quiet place...take me to my quiet place.

Mommy and daddy kept trying to encourage me to play with the other pups, but I was having none of it.  So daddy makes this video to show how my first day really a nutshell.

To be continued...


  1. Woof! Woof! Don't you worry ... it will be better and lots of FUN FUN FUN. Happy BlogPAWs (Wordless) Wednesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

    1. Aww..thank you for the encouragement Sugar. :)

  2. Oh Maude,

    You're too cute buddy!! I wish I could come and play with you :) You're funny how you sit with your butt firmly against the wall to avoid more sniffing!

    Love the video, btw, I'm no expert, but tell your Dad he may want to hold the camera horizontal rather than vertical as you'll see more when you replay it on here :)

    Hey guess what, my buddy Cosmo and I were mistaken again for OES yesterday, I often think, if I had a cookie for every time people think I'm an OES, but then Mum says I'd be fat! :)

    Have a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  3. You'll get used to it all, and then it will be fun.

  4. Cute video...mine would have been the Golden puppy right in all the action, ha! Hope each week gets better!

  5. Oh Maude, you look like you're trying to push your cute booty right through the wall so you can disappear. :) I hope you have more fun next time!

  6. Awe! Don't you worry Maude. Hopefully those pups will start learning some manners!!

    Maybe mom or dad could arrange a one on one playdate with one of your classmates? It's always easier if you already know someone!

  7. Aww Maude, you were da cutest puppy there (IMO XD) so adorables!!! if I was there someone would have to hold me back from hugging you too much! Glad you made nice new buddies!

  8. How precious- your first day of class. You are a wise pup to take it all in and start off in "the shallow end" of the pool so to speak!
