Mom had an early doctor appt with a doctor that would require all her attention so I stayed home. It was a new Rheumatologist for this area. Her old one is in Oregon. This was her second visit to get his opinion after all the test from a month ago. He was very good and confirmed mom’s prior diagnosis of RA and Fibro. As well as they went over all her other illnesses. Mom really liked him and will continue on her current RA meds for now.
After the doctor she ran in a few thrift stores by his office to look for some stuff. She came home with all kinds of goodies and a cool agility tunnel. It is a small one but was only $5. She knew how much I love d the tunnel at puppy class and thought we could have some fun with and even use it as a training tool. I learn much better when having fun. I think she will take some pictures of me in it when it stops raining. She then came home had lunch and took me with her. We met Ellen to give her Shadow’s finished bed. We then went over to target and put my vest on and went in. Mom was looking for one of those pop up crates for the trip. Of course they were out of my size but she has other places to get them as well. We still have several weeks to get those things. Then we went to Ross to look for some kind of bag for the train part of the tip. She wanted something that will set on her seat of her walker. She brought home a couple choices and one will fit nicely. So she will return the other. Then she took off my vest and we went next door to Petsmart to desensitize me for class tomorrow. I was so wound up on sensory overload last week she thought this may help. We ran into the trainer who teaches the classes and she thought that was a good idea. She also suggested we try the GL so mom bought one. The trainer is going to help us with it tomorrow and we do not like it we can return it.
Then mom worked with me on watching and paying attention to her. I got lots of treats.
When we got home I was exhausted and took a big nap. Mom is worn out as well but she had to make phone calls for our trip. She booked Amtrak but needs to get a letter from our trainer saying mom is qualified to have me as a SDIt on the train. Mom contacted her and she said no problem. She is also going to do a mock CGC on me since I am a year old now. So we have a very busy month ahead of us. We are looking foreword to meeting all our California friends face to face and nose to nose.

I'm sure you'll do great on your practice CGC! And yay for the agility tunnel! I haven't taken agility classes yet, but Sissy Sabrina says that agility is a whole lot of fun!

My moms rheumy appt is next month. She wanted me to tell you that she kind of understands your moms pain! But really I came here to say that I know you will do great on your CGC, even if it is for practice. You do a great job helping your mom, and I love hearing about your work. For a small dog you have a BIG job, and I think you are awesome at it! I wish mom would put me in agility, but it is too far. I have a tire swing in my yard that I get to jump through though! And I can weave between my moms legs:)

I have not got to play in my tunnel yet becuse it will not stop raining.. We live in a RV so there is nor room inside to play. i hope CGC stands for Crunchy Gooey Cookies,mmmmmm.
Tetra some times we got to the playground when there are no kids and i get to play on the equipment. It is lots of fun and we pretend it is agility.
I have not figured out I am little yet.......
