Time to Catch Up!

Let's see... Friday evening Mom took me to a restaurant for supper. There was a park across the way that had a memorial for veterans so she decided we definitely needed to get a picture of me there. On Saturday, August 28th, Mom took me to Lake Arrowhead. Neither of us had ever been there and it sure is a fun place! There were a lot of other dogs there but Mom made sure I didn't get to greet any of them. I sure tried, though! I think I might be glad to get my vaccinations! Mom felt bad because there was a working guide dog in the parking lot that I managed to distract. Hey, I just wanted to say hi! Turns out so did she but her handler was on top of that so we didn't ever get to say hi or anything. Mom tells me that is what I am going to be doing some day. Walk around all day with Mom? Sure thing!

The best entertainment I had was Mom putting a bunch of ice cubes in my water bowl. That was fun! Even the blanket I was on got nice and cold and wet. Wonderful! We were there the whole afternoon just getting used to the noise of the band playing and people and dogs everywhere. It was a long enough day that I fell asleep right on the sidewalk! Felt good, too!

Sunday and Monday didn't have much going on. Mom is trying to teach about something called "tie down" but so far it's just something else fun to chew.

Then today I got to go with Mom to take the daughter to gym class and dance class. I've been doing very well at nicely chewing my toy even though the kids are running back and forth in front of me. I haven't even had an accident!
Mom says she's quite happy with my progress. It's time to send in the first monthly report on my progress. I can say I've been in schools, restaurants, malls, cars, stores, church and after-school activities. Other than having someone examine Mom's training ID carefully there've been no problems at all. Mom says she will be glad when I get my shots because I'm not fitting very well in the grocery cart any more!
