Mia's Big Adventure

Hi Everyone! Our cousin Mia had a big day last weekend so we invited her along to tell us, and you all about it:

Mia here, I live with my big brother Darwin in Lincolnshire and we are cousins of Dexter and Louis. I Thought I’d tell you about my big adventure on Saturday.  Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been meeting up with my friends from the dog training centre for practices for our very important day, we had been asked to do some displays at a village fete, companion and fun dog show.
This is me on Saturday, socialising in the sunshine...
 It was very exciting, Mum managed to cook up some liver treats without setting the smoke alarm off and she made sandwiches and packed our bag the night before.  We had to get up early because she was instructing for 3 hours in the morning before the display.  I got to go to the classes and slept in my crate in the office while she talked to lots of little puppies, then I got to play with my friend Stanley who’s a mini schnauzer too, he is a bit like Darwin and barks a lot.  When we got to the show, lots of my friends were already there so we had a picnic together.
Mum didn’t take many photos as she was very busy but I got to see dancers who had bells tied on their legs, some very scary birds, one was called an eagle owl, it was so big, also lots of different dogs of all sizes. 
Coco - my famous friend
This is Coco he is half Chinese Crested and half Maltese, he is my special friend – he is very famous and you can sometimes read about him in Your Dog magazine cos his Mum writes for them.
The Flying Coco!
 We did an obedience display and I was part of the on lead team, we had lots of moves to do and Mum said she liked my trotting cos I looked like a little pony.  Some of my friends did a heel work to music display and then there was the agility display where two teams raced against each other.  I wanted a go but my Mum says I’m not old enough yet as I’m only 15 months.
Me watching Coco in action...
We had a lovely time and Mum says we’ve got lots more displays to do this summer.  Darwin doesn’t like going to shows as he gets very cross if people get too close to us and he has something called pancreatitis so he can’t have yummy treats or get stressed.  He had a good time at home helping Dad with the gardening and going for a long walk to look for foxes.
Way to go Mia!!! Well done on your first display.  Have a great weekend everyone, Love Dex & Lou x

Don't forget it's Peeps on Parade weekend over at Sarge's blog and he'd like everyone to join in - click here for all the details.

I've been to trials and stuff where very clever doggies who are much more advanced than me do their stuff! I loved the flying Coco photo!!

Mum is not sure how far I will go in obedience and agility.....she says "we will see".

I love that Mia is black and silver...reminds me of my cousin Scarlet.

Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

That sure was nice of you Louis and Dex to share your blog with Mia.

I think Mia did a pawsome job. Now will you please ask Mia to give my email addie to that cutie Coco? I thinks that I is in LOVE! He is so handsome too! Oh, a never mind, Mom says that he is too far away and that long distance romances don't work. Oh well, he sure is cute though.

hey Mia,

Nice to meet you! Love the photo of you in the sunshine. You are a very beautiful pup!

What a pawsome post you wrote. Sounds like you had a very exciting day! Coco is adorable and the photo of him flying is very cool!

I am sorry your brofur Darwin could not join in the fun, and what a horrible disease that prevents him from getting yummy treats. So not fair! But at least he got to have some fun dad time!
