Violette: Neigh everyone, Violette here! It's been a while. I have been busy adjusting to my new life and keeping up with everyone at Poupounette Central. #1 has been coming to see me (and that big boy she calls my brother) almost every day. I love it when she visits and I love to give her lots of kisses. She needs them right now because it looks like the hard drive on her desktop Mac has died. Thank goodness for the MacBook!
Anyway, #1 told me when I moved into this fancy new place that I would soon be going to school and learning all kinds of stuff. I had a first, tentative go in the ring a week ago and then, on Friday evening, I had my first proper lesson!
But let's start with a portrait of me. Do you think this is my best side?
Off to school with Mr. E...
OK. So what do I do now?
Face that way? Right.
So, you just want me to walk, Ms. S? Round and round?
And then show you some of my moves?
So, why are you bending down like that in front of me, Ms. S?
You want to play tug of war? With me???? Humans can be a little bit strange, don't you think?
So that, Dear Friends, was my lesson. I thought it was a lot of fun. And afterwards, I was taken to a special room and Mr. E gave me a shower! I had never had a shower before and was a little bit frightened at first, but it felt really, really good after all that hard work. I like my new life!
