What a busy wonderful day. Mom and I went over to my friend Meadow’s house in the morning. They had Birthday gifts for me to open. I got a nice micro-fiber towel and 4 new toys. Mom says that brings my number of toys to over 25. Mom and dad think I have too many toys but they are all my favorites and I could not part with any of them. I still have my ones I got when I was a baby. Then Meadow and I played and ran for a while. Mom said it was time to go and Meadow’s mom was coming with us but not Meadow. I was very sad and Meadow was not very happy either. We were going to the mall to work and since Meadow is not a SD she could not come. Once we got to the mall mom had her new glasses adjusted. The lady was not very friendly and glared at me. Then we went out and walked around the mall. We went in a Hallmark store where there were very nice people. The workers and the customers had lots of questions. Our friend shopped, I was on a down stay and mom chatted with everyone. She handed out some of my cards. Then we went down the elevator to the next floor. As we were walking I saw a black dog with a lady. Right away I knew I liked him and started wagging my butt at him. Mom made me just walk by him and did not stop. When we went back towards him and the black dog’s owner made him lay down. My mom made me lay down also. The other dog and I made little sounds to each other. He was soooo cute. His name is Shadow and his mom is Ellen. They came to meet us at the mall so I could work around another team. At first I was very distracted, but after walking around I got better. We all went into some stores together and I kept trying to sneak Shadow a kiss. He is older and more mature then me so he behaved. Once in a while though we would flirt with each other. Shadow’s mom has not got to work him in a while so it was good for both of us. Ellen then thought it would be good for us to do a greet on the peoples terms. Shadow rolled over and I gave him a kiss on his face. We then had our friend take pictures of all of us and some of just Shadow and I. Ellen saw my mat and ordered one for Shadow so that his airplane ride in a couple weeks would be comfy. After a while Shadow and his mom had to leave. Our friend and mom and I then went to Ruby Tuesdays for lunch. I was very tired and sprawled out on my mat and slept. There was a table next to us with 3 very nice children. They had lots of good questions. Mom gave them one of my cards as well as the SD info card she had made. The parents were very nice and mom and her friend had a nice visit with them. When mom and her friend were done eating I got to go for a little walk outside the mall and then to the car and headed for home. When we got home Mom and I were wore out. I still wanted to play with all my new toys though so I skipped a nap. Finally I could not stay awake and fell asleep.

Wow, you keep your toys a lot longer than I keep mine! Maybe that is why mom and dad always make sure to get the natural material toys since I end up eating a lot of them, and the rest of my toys get composted when they are too gone to be safely played with!

Sounds like your meetup with Shadow was fun! I wish I could have been there, too!

these mats are the star Dora - your mom is so talented. I am so glad we have this fabulous mat. You know, plane rides are cold on the floor. We usually cover the bottom of the airplane wall with part of the blanket and have Jolanda/Jojo lay on the rest. We love the size. It is perfect. I can imagine that Shadow will be so happy with it.
I love the part with the kiss *giggle* Sweet boy Shadow.
This mall looks pretty nice actually. I would have plunked myself into the armchair and not move :D
Great day - ummm, I so missed your b'day.. Well, b-day is every day, don't you think? I will drag mom down down to the post office soon and make sure you are not forgotten.. Toy junkie, you!
Love, Jolanda and sonja

ummm, I forgot a part there..

"You know, plane rides are cold on the floor. We usually cover the bottom of the airplane wall with part of the blanket and have Jolanda/Jojo lay on the rest. NOW WE HAVE THE MAT AND IT IS SO MUCH EASIER TO USE PART TO COVER THE BOTTOM OF THE WALL AND HAVE ME LAY ON IT AT THE SAME TIME. THE MAT IS MORE SOLID AND STABLE AND WON'T SLIDE DOWN. NO EXTRA BLANKETS NEEDED. We love the size. It is perfect. I can imagine that Shadow will be so happy with it."

The part in captions is the one missing.. You might have figured that yourself :D I don't know how to create Italic letters here. So my apologies.
Kisses, Jolanda and sonja

Ollie-My friend Meadow tears up her toys also.
Jolanda-yes planes are cold and the mat should keep you warm. Yes i was 1 year old on Dec.28 when we were in Laughlin. The mall is very nice, it is the first place I went in my vest as a SDIT. They have like 10 of those seating areas and mom likes to sit and rest in them.
