Entlebucher Mountain Dog Mischief at Discover Dogs at Earls Court


My little sister Bella and I had a pawsome time at Discover Dogs yesterday. For those of you who don’t know it, its an enormous dog show where humans can meet over 200 dog breeds and chat with their humans. Its simply pawsome. Anyway, Bella and I were supposed to be there to represent our breed. Its a great honour, but it also comes with great responsibility.

All things considered, our job was quite easy – all we had to do was to look adorable while our humans did the booooring bit – talking to other humans about exercise, health issues and dog training.

The only problem was that our job was a little tooo easy.

Well, lets be honest we don’t have to work very hard at being adorable, so that gave us plenty of time to think of other games to play *waggy tail*

Our synchronised sit...

Bella's human...

Up for a little Mischief?

My first idea for a great game was to simply jump out of the playpen – I have gained quite a reputation for being able to jump impossibly high, so a silly little playpen wasn’t going to hold me for long.

I had seen several toy and food stands on my way in, and was keen to show Bella around as it was her first time there. There was only one problem – the stoopid  puppy is still so rubbish at jumping I would have had to leave her behind *sigh*.

My second idea was to eat all the treats, including the rawhide but that didn’t take long. Then finally it struck me, why don’t we teach all these humans how much fun you can have with a ball? I Rooo ooooo’d until my human got my favourite green ball out of her rucksack and then I waved it in Bella’s face.

Nothing Beats a Good Game of Chase

The cheeky little girl stole the ball straight out of my mouth and she started a fab game of chase around the playpen, wiggling her way between the humans legs, with me close behind – sending the humans wobbling.

After a while,  our humans got the hint and started playing with us and showing off some cool tricks we’ve learned. The audience seemed to really enjoy our synchronised ‘sit’ and Bella’s human even made the little kids guess who would catch the ball first once she gave the release command.

Looking for trouble...

Silly question really, as if I would ever loose that competition. Then I trained up a couple of new humans to pick up the ball and throw it for me – so much fun!  *Waggy tail*.

Missing Out on All the Fun!

Several humans who came over to say hello said we were certainly one of the most active breeds in the show – and on our way out I understood what she meant. Several of the other dogs were just lying in their playpens sound asleep and unaware of the commotion around them – shame really, they were missing out on all the fun! *Waggy tail*

    Well you’ve been modest as far as the mischief part is concerned Alfie, but that’s great, because instead you and Bella have done very well in showing what the Entlebucher breed is all about!
    And as I understand from Bella’s blog, there was a very good reason for her to forget about mischief (well, kind of…) this week as well, so you can be proud of your little sister too!
    (and I’m really sorry to hear that sad story, could you let her know that, please?)

    Sounds like a fun time. I heard my breeder in England was there with GBGVs, of course, me being in the USA was not there. Glad you did such a fine job representing your breed!

  3. says

    I have never been to one of those types of shows before… home show – yes, design shows – yes, craft shows – yes, but nothing like a dog show. Sounds fun.

  4. says

    Did you go by more stall and say hi?? *Sad eyes* not that I was allowed to go *Shouts* Dad but Alfie and Bella got to go so why couldn’t I?!

  5. says

    Hey Alfie,

    Glad you and Bella had so much fun buddy!! :) Maybe next year Bella will have worked out how to get out of the pen and you can both wander around a little?! :)

    I did a meet the breeds one time in San Francisco and it was awesome – so much lovin’!!

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
