Daycare Day!

Today was my first day in dog daycare. Normally, my Dad works from home, so we just hang out together during the day, but Dad has to be in the office this week, so off to daycare I was sent.

Last week I had to go in and take a temperament test, which I passed with flying colors. Like I could possibly be a mean Airedale?

So this morning, I was dropped off and said a big goodbye to Mom and Dad. That's when all the fun began. I played all day long. It was GREAT! My neighbor dog, Doolin, was at daycare too, so we played for hours!! When Mom came to pick me up she was asked how old I was. Mom replied that I will be two in July and the worker told her she was surprised as I was quite calm while playing, so they thought I was a senior dog. Oh my! Mom just laughed and said maybe I was a bit nervous being in daycare for the very first time.

Now, I'm so tired, all that play really wore me out. I'm heading back to bed to get my rest, I've got two more days of daycare ahead of me. Oh dog!

'Till next time,

Glad your new computer is working and you are blogging again. The big bed looks really comfy. It sounds like you have a fun week planned! Can't wait to hear about all the new friends you make in daycare.

Hey, bud!

Daycare sounds like a blast. I wonder if I could pass the temperament test as well as you did. (I'm a little socially retarded sometimes.)

Have a blast & play your little senior heart out (hehehe).

Goober love & smooches,

Hi Kirby
That's great mate. Doggy day care sounds like heaps of fun. Lucky you getting to play all day. I hope I'd pass the temperament test. I reckon Lucy would fail haa haa haa.

Hugs and tail wags

They were impressed with your maturity! I get the other way around - I'm an old dog (almost 10!) and people think I'm a puppy. It sounds like you had a great time. I bet you will sleep for a week when you are done.

Your friend, Lenny

Doggy Daycare sounds like alot of fun....I am so glad to be your friend to, Kirby. You are wonderful wonderful and hope to get to play together someday.

You look bushed, Kirby but I bet daycare is a real blast when you have friends to play with all day!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Those people that thought you are a senior dog should see Penny chasing our new big baby brother. She's 9 and she still runs like a 2year old! Mom's afraid she is going to drop dead from a heart attack or something when they do zoomies around the living room.

Hey Kirby,
The daycare people must not have been watching while you were playing like mad huh??? hehehehe! Glad you had such a good time there. We can't believe they thought you were a senior dog though, are they blind???
We've given you a challenge to keep you busy. Visit our blog for details. Have a great weekend! Did you get the snow today too??
Luv & Wirey Hug!

Isn't daycare pawsome!? I love it! My girl sends me twice a week in winter and once a week durring the rest of the year. When I get home in the evening after daycare, I eat my dinner and then sleep all the way through to the next day!
My girl and my grandma think that you sound a lot like me and can't wait to meet you. People are always surprised to hear my age too. They say I'm "awfully calm for a terrier". Most people think it's a wonderful quality but some think I'm a weirdo because of it.
You better rest up for the rest of the week!

Deetz said...

Hi Kirby...I am having a birfday party July 1st, sure hope you can come and everyone else too.

Mango said...

Oh, man, I miss the daycare soooo much, but there was that boxer "incident" and plus they said if I came back I'd have to leave my gajingles at home.

You might get hooked on it and want to go even when your dad is at home!

Harry said...

Sounds like you had fun! I reckon you were just warming up the first day!
