This morning mom took me for a big walk with lots of training. Mom said I did very well and that hopfully i burned off some energy. Then they started to get ready to go somewhere. I was not sure if I was going since I have had to stay home the last couple days. I heard dad say is your dog going and i heard mom say yes. Well I waited to see if she called me and point to the step. Well she did and i went there and sat quietly while she put on my working collar. I heard mom tell dad that she was not feeling good enough to do the fabric store and costco. She said that he could drop off mom and me at Joanns' fabrics and he could do costco. She said we should not be long as some of the sales were done and that it should be slower then yesterday. She said she was not getting fabric and had a coupon to use for some needles and things. I was so excited that mom could hardly get my vest on. We headed to the store and dad headed to Costco. I got so excited going into the store that i forgot to heel. Mom got me in the store and over to one side. She got my attention and was glad to see there was carts. mom likes using a cart and it makes me heel and behave better. Well the store was packed. We could hardly get down the isles. On the needle isle mom positioned me between her and the cart and put me on a down so she could focus on what she needed. About that time we see an employee heading for us. She says mam you will have to..... and then she looked down and saw my vest and said never mind. We then continued to look at stuff on mom's list. She found some wonderful batting for dog mats. The had 100% cotton and bamboo. She said years ago she could only find poly. It was on sale so she grabbed some of each. Then we headed to the checkout line. It serpentined around the store and it was long. We would move 3 steps and then I would down for a minute or two and then we would move 3 steps. Mom said it was wonderful practice. I thought it was very booorrriing. Once we got through the line we headed out to the parking lot and dad was waiting for us. Mom said I did very well considering how crowded it was. When we got home the neighbor was putting lights up all over her rv. When I came out later in the day there was a noise coming from the neighbors' yard. It was some sort of blow up snow globe thing. it worried me a little so mom took me over to see it. There was a snowman in there with snow blowing all around him. After I saw what it was I was okay with it. Mom used her new sewing machine to do some alterations to my vest straps. She is still getting used to the new machine.
