This morning mom got up early and started to get ready to go somewhere. I was not sure if I was going but I got very clingy to mom. Mom then got out my working lead and collar, yea I was going. I could barely eat breakfast I was so excited I kept checking to make sure mom was not leaving without me. Finally mom figured I was never going to finish my meal unless she held still. Then we loaded up and the car and headed down the road. I did not know were we were going until all of a sudden I realized we were going to my friend Meadow's house. I got to go in and play with her so we could burn off energy . Then her and her mom joind us and we were on our way. Meadow does not usually ride in her crate so she was winey, i was right next to her and tried to calm her down. We got to our first stop and it was "In the Raw Coffee, Juice and dog bar". They were having a dog brunch and had a spread of goodies and for a donation your dog can have whatever goodies they want. The proceeds went to the local animal sanctuary. Mom got us a nice table on the patio and Meadow and I got goodies while our mom's had a drink. After alittle bit we headed over the the pet holiday fair. It was not very big but we walked around and had a good time. Mom did not vest me and said I was off duty and could have fun. She did tell me that I could not pull though. I got to meet all kinds of people and dogs. At one rescue booth there was a very nice blue Austrailian Cattle Dog. She needed a new home and was 15 months old. Mom and I both liked her and spent some time talking to her. After we left the fair we went to Petsmart. when mom lifted me out of my crate she put me down with no vest. Mom figured since i was not vested I would be my same goofy self as the last two places. I layed down and waited for her to tell me what to do. Then I heeled perfectly up to the store, paused at the door. Once we got in side a man came over to talk to mom so i just layed at her feet and waited. Then mom started to walk so I heeled then it dawned on mom that I thought I was working. She could not believe I was in work mode without my vest. I just figured we were in a store so I was working and on my best behavior. Mom just laughed and told me what a great dog I was. She then said ALL DONE so I would know to relax and then I jumped in the air and bounced around. I visited with some people and dogs but I was very good. Mom is so pleased that I have learned that in stores to be in work mode. When we got home mom put me in my crate and they went over to the neighbors for dinner. I did not mind as I needed a nap.
