Meeting new pups

Mum has decided the quickest way for me to get more confident and be happier is to meet lots of new dogs. She was worried about me when I started growling at some of the new dogs I met, and she said that unless I play nicely with dogs I would always stay on lead. So she started letting me play with other dogs.
I played with Patrick and Storm first of all. They are also Poppy's friends. Patrick sometimes tells me off in the office and Storm ignores me, so I wasn't sure whether they would let me be their friends. But mum took me out in the field with them, and when I showed that I could be nice while I had my lead on, she let me run with my lead off. We had some great chasing games.
On the same day I met two German Shephards. Charlie is big and cream. He is lovely and friendly but also very big. I lay down on my back which made mum laugh. She called me a wimp, but said she'd rather I was submissive like that, than growling like I used to. My best friend of the day was a little German Shephard pup called Dixie. She was big and fluffy, and was the same size as me even though she was only about 12 weeks old. We had great fun scampering around, and wrestling each other. I realised that if I stopped quickly while Dixie was running towards me that she would fall over me. Very funny!
I have disgraced myself once this week. Mum has been taking me up to the corner field at work to play. It's away from the yard and the car park which makes me feel happier. We have been leaning about fetch and playing and coming back when I'm called. I did bad though and made my way under a fence. Mum just shook her head and sighed. She says I'm just like Poppy. She had to climb the fence, and now for some reason has banned me from that field. I promised I won't do it again, but she doesn't believe me.
I met the guinea pigs today and mum is very proud of me because I ignored them. I like making mum proud.
