This morning mom put my going somewhere fun collar on. I got excited especially since I had not been anywhere since mom hurt her back 2 weeks ago. We ended up at the dog park, and my best friend Meadow was there. While her and I played our humans had a nice visit. After a while of having a good time my mom said it was time to leave. I noticed we did not head home but the other directions. We pulled up somewhere and mom put my vest on and my working collar and lead. I was so excited to be out and working. Well mom, dad and i headed in to the store and that is when it hit me it was a fabric store. They have so much junk on the floor it is great for a hoover dog like me. Mom is not as impressed with the messy floors. Apparently mom has been having issues with the new sewing machine and is going to take it back. So they were her to look for another. This joann's fabric did not have a full sewing machine center but we found out were one was. We then went over to Dave's BBQ, i had never been here but as any place that serves food it smelled great. Well they gave mom and dad a booth. This made mom nervous as i have never been at a booth. Mom was n0t sure she could keep a good on me but they took it. Mom placed me on my mat under the table were she could sort of see me. I was pretty good considering it had been so long since I had been out working. I did take advantage a little of mom's obstructed view. We left there and went to Bass Pro shop. Another first for me and I loved it. They have a no dog policy but of course no one said a word as we came in. Dad headed one direction and mom and me another. Mom and Dad do not hunt or really fish but they like the clothes the store carries. Mom got 3 tops on sale and dad got nothing. I was very good as many people talked to me and wanted to pet me. Mom explained I was training and everyone was very good. We left there and went to another Joann's fabric, oh boy. We went to the sewing machine area to talk to the expert. There was a lady before us so we had to wait. They had chairs so mom sat down while we waited. By this time poor mom was wore out, mentally and physically. The lady was very nice and showed them several ones. Of course mom loved the one that does embroidery but that is waaayyy out of her budget. I was getting fidgety and saw mom shutting down. To many choices and to many numbers. Finally the decided on one and we left. The lady said that if mom decided to upgrade to the fancy machine in 3 months she could return the one she bought and they would put it towards the new one.
