Once she was let off her lead and placed upon the tiled floor, Rikku instantly sizes up her opponents. To the left stands a Border Collie, licking it’s, umm… private parts, and to the right a Rottweiler, drooling heavily. Being the brave dare-dog that she is, Rikku decided to tackle the Rottweiler first. She slowly started to creep up behind it, edging closer and closer until it turned its head and looked straight at her, she suddenly starts bounding towards it, completely forgetting that she is a Silky Terrier/Chihuahua.
“Awww what a cute puppy… She’s a feisty one.”
I’ve been attended puppy school with Candy (the human friend) and Rikku (the puppy, which needs an education) because I was told that Rikku was beating up the others puppies during previous classes, and I just had to see it for myself. I was amazed, in awe, and dying of laughter when I saw that the little ball of fluff I lovingly call ‘Lady Rikku’ was beating up the other (much larger) puppies, I even had to grab her and make her have some lap-out-time because she was getting too rough.
“My, isn’t she energetic, she just keeps going and going and…”
After some talk about puppy food, the puppy school teacher went around the class asking each owner what they feed their pup, and when it was Candy’s turn to share I felt like saying “well, she’s on crack, as you can see”, but I thought that it might not have gone down well, there were innocent little puppies present.
“She’s umm… Different.”
Her legs seem to be growing at a fast pace and her body is yet to catch up, she looks a bit odd at the present time, like some strange African dog that has long legs for running and a small head for doing small head stuff. I still love her though, well, when she’s not chewing my hair.
“It’s like she has the mind of a German Shepard and the body of a Chihuahua.”
She’s the smartest dog in her puppy class… ok, I know I’m her Auntie and it’s my job to say those kinds of things… but it is true. Candy is contemplating enrolling her in agility classes after she completes puppy and doggy school and there are even talks of getting Rikku into doggy modelling/acting. She is already toilet trained, can sit, drop (Harry can’t even drop, unless of course food is involved), and is pretty close to roll over, she can also stand on Candy’s shoulders and not fall off. She’s a star, a star I tell you (but she’ll have to check into rehab if she doesn’t get that drug problem under control).
