We just got home from our 4 day trip and I would like to share our experiences. Sunday morning mom and dad loaded up the car and we headed down the road. I did very good this time and never said a word the whole 4 hours. When we got Laughlin we went to The Golden Nugget. It was so nice because I had been here before and I recognized all the smells. I was a little wound up at first so after we checked in we went right to our room and I ran around and burned up some energy. Mom said that I did really well this trip. Especially since between her back injury and my spay. I have not worked in public much in the last month. I did well at all the restaurants and stayed on my mat most of the time. A couple times I did crawl a little and mom put me back in my spot. I try to invent ways to move without mom noticing. Some times I get no where and other times I get a few inches. We did not work on the escalators as much as mom had planned as she used her walker. One day she did not use it and we did go up and down a few times. Mom scooped me up and carried me like before. I was not that worried and mom said I did much better then before. Most of the time I was working and wore my backpack. A few times mom would take off my backpack and let me visit. Only a few people who mom liked and got to know. Especially on my birthday I got to have some really fun visits. Mom did pretty well until the last day when she decided she felt good enough not to use the walker. She paid for it and was in a lot of pain and tired that evening. One night it was really crowded and mom was playing the slot machines and she let me sit on her walker seat. She put her coat on there and I just stayed up there perfectly. Mom said it was nice to have me right next to her so she could pet me and make her feel calm. Plus she knew it would be easier for me to alert her. I noticed she was getting very tired and fuzzy brained. I bugged her until we went up to the room. She said she was so glad I did that as she did not realize she was that bad. She also started to get one of her head pains. Mom still has trouble bending over so I picked up lots of stuff for her as well.
