We are back from our vacation and I have so much to tell. I have told mom to keep it short as some times she goes on and on. We had a great time and we all learned so much. Mom did not have to use the walker the whole time but when she did it helped and I was very good with it. When we arrived at Sam’s Town in LasVegas on Sunday we were all excited and anxious. This would be out first trip with me as a SDIT. Dad decided it would be a good idea to get checked into our room and grab a bite to eat first. It was a good thing as our room was not ready. We had to walk through an atrium to get to the hotel lobby and mom was nervous. They made it to look like a park and mom was afraid I may have an accident. Of course I did not but there was a lot to see and take in. We had only been in the building 3 minutes and we ran right into a guide team. Luckily mom, dad and the dog’s handler were all between us dogs. This is the first team we have encountered so mom thought back to what she has learned from folks here. So she blurts out we have a service puppy in training. About that time the Golden Retriever lets out 4 very loud barks. These were not let’s play barks they were hey mom there is something here. Well the woofs echoed through the atrium and everyone looked our direction. I just looked over at the Golden and mom hustled me on by. Mom was very nervous about being access challenged on this trip and it never happened. In fact everyone at the property was very warm and welcoming. The security guards who guard the entrances all became our friends. The cocktail waitress brought mom and dad lots of drinks so they could say. All of the restraints were sure to get us very nice seating so that I had plenty of space. Even though mom was very strict on my visiting I have a huge fan club there. After 3 nights of staying in Las Vegas dad called The Golden Nugget in Laughlin. He was able to get 2 free nights so we headed down there. I liked Laughlin; they had a nice river walk that we went out on several times. It was nice to be out in the fresh air and look at all the big ducks on the path. On our first day mom and I were walking through the casino past the gaming tables when a hairy black and white Tasmanian devil wearing a vest came at us growling and barking. Mom said it was hard to tell but she thinks it was a shi-Tzu. I just looked at the dog and mom told me to leave it and we walked off. We could hear the older couple still yelling at the dog on the other side of the room. We found out later it is a regular there and it even does that to people. Mom says as long as they spend money there they probably do not say anything. All and all mom says it was a great trip. I alerted mom to her head pains a couple times but she did not listen the first time. She thought I was being pesky and needed a break so we went to our room. Shortly afterwards she got her head pain and had to take a pill. Well the next time I alerted she took a pill and we went to the room just as the head pain started. Mom has decided she needs to read me a little better and pay attention. Mom says that after this trip she feels we are a team and I agree. Mom says that this trip was the best thing we could have done for my training. Even dad had fun and said I did very well. We may do it again next month as they have more free nights…….
