Another busy day it was for me. We all got up early and were out of the house by 7:30. Dad had a Dr. Appt to have his blood pressure checked (I already told him it was high). Mom decided this would be another good training opportunity. It is the same clinic her Dr is in and it was very slow that early in the morning. We all went in and waited until we were called to the exam room. Mom put my mat in the corner for me to lie on. When the NP came in she said I was adorable but knew she could not talk to me (darn). Well apparently Dad’s blood pressure is very high and he is going to have to take something for it. The NP also noticed that both mom and dad had terrible colds. She gave them both all kinds of goodies to help clear things up and get a good night sleep. Once we left there we went next door to the Starbucks in Safeway. Mom had gotten several gift certificates so they each got a coffee (I got nothing). We then went back by home and picked up our ice chest and packs. I heard mom say that I got to go again, she was going to have dad drop off us at Joann’s fabric to look for fabric for our friend Barkley’s travel mat. Dad said he would then go to Costco and pick us up when he was finished. Well the fabric store was quite busy and everyone wanted to talk to me or mom about me. We finally managed to get a few things and get in the cutting line. Mom put me on a down and everyone just oohhheedd and awweedd over me. I did solicit a little but it was hard not to. Mom said I did very well for all that was going on. Then we went out front and dad picked us up. Dad explained to mom all that he bought and it was agreed he should not go to Costco alone again. We then headed over the Health food grocery store. Mom was starting to get very shaky so they decided to have a bite to eat. The each had a sandwich at one of the little lunch tables. I laid right under mom’s chair and was perfect. Afterward they headed to the meat counter area. It was busy so dad parked our cart out of the way and mom put me there on a down stay. Dad watched me out of the corner of his eye and mom got some nice organic meats. Everything was going well and I was watching mom when this loud noise happened right behind me on the other side of a wine display. Everyone turned to see and I jumped up and was very very worried. Apparently an entire display of wine just fell over. No one was around and thank goodness no one was hurt. I was so shook up it took about 10 minutes for me to settle back down. The wine was some kind of chocolate stuff and mom said the whole store smelled yummy. Well dad got his wheat grass and we checked out. When we got home everyone was exhausted. Mom and dad were up most last night coughing.
