Makaton Monday ~ Puppy Love

This weekend was a first for Bruiser in that he met a little tiny puppy. He’s grown up with relatives and some friends having (big) dogs but he’s never interacted with them or seemed that bothered about them. However, this puppy brought out a side of him that we have NEVER seen before. He was so interactive with it, he talked to it (in his own little way), he was affectionate with it. At one point, he even used the puppy to interact with the other children in the room. Bruiser being ‘social’… another first 🙂




Its evident from pictures that ‘Jess’ liked Bruiser as much as he liked her.


Following on from his experience this weekend, this week, we are going to introduce other animal signs into Bruiser’s ‘signabulary’. Starting with these…

Bruiser has learnt to sign and say this one this weekend!






Is that a new addition to the family I see on the horizon?? 😉
