Well mom has not been feeling very well so i am behind on my entries. Since mom has been down there is not a whole lot to report until today. Mom took me for a nice training walk this morning and i did really well. Then this afternoon we had a private lesson with our trainer at the outdoor mall. Mom was in pain so she took some pain meds and dad drove us. He dropped us off and went to do some errands. The trainer said I did really well and even mom had improved. She said her "NOs" were much better as well as her timimg she also said she liked that she was praising me more and I agree. The tainer had mom put me on a down stay with her at the bench and then mom went around the corner. Mom has been wanting to practice this but wanted to leave me with someone I could not manipulate and would correct me properly. I did not whine but did get up twice the whole time. Mom would come by me stop and then go the other way around a corner. They did this for about 10 minutes, frankly I got bored of the whole game. Then we walked aound some more and did differnt things. There was a store with a water bowl out front and really nice ladies so our trainer suggested mom take off my vest and let them visit with me. It was so nice to have a break and be goo gooed over. Then the vest was back on and I was back to work. When we were done the trainer said I was doing great. Mom asked about the trip to las Vegas and she said of course i was ready just take me and have fun. If I get burnt out that mom will know and we can take a break in our room or something. Mom has allready searched out some dog parks. Then we met up with Dad and said goodbye to our trainer. Dad was all excited about this place him and mom had been wanting to try. It was a sushi/martinit bar that was open(usually they are there earlier in the day and it is closed) and he wanted to try it. Well mom was not sure because I had only done outside dining and she did not have my pad she has been having me lay on at mealtime. Mom tends to worry and freak out over the sillist things. Then she remebered what the trainer said and thought what the heck. So in we went. they were so nice and let mom choose anywhere they wanted to sit. So we sat in another room were no one was in a corner. Mom said it was perfect for my first time as I could experience it without a lot of distraction. Well of course i was perfect. I stayed on my down stay the whole time even when the servers came to the table. It probably helped that i was hot and tired. So mom and I are both in a good mood after a good lesson and my first indoor restraunt. I am wore out and ready for bed. I think mom needs to rest also so she is done for the night being my secretary.

I can imagine you are tired - you did a fine job Dora!! Tell your mom to take care of herself and not to overdo it. Good you take care of her and behave so well.
Thank you for sharing and tell your mom there is no reason to put herself under pressure. There is no rule for the pace of diary entries. Whenever you guys are ready for an entry - go for it. We love reading.
