Mom and I are both okay we have just been very busy. Mom is getting ready for our trip in a week. She has been busy filling orders for the travel mats as well as all her medical appts. Her back and knees have been giving her some trouble but bearable. Mom and I have been working with the gentle leader. It is helping me to be more focused and heel much better. I am still fighting it just a little but mom gives lots of treats and encouragement. Today I did much better on our walk.
This morning mom and I went to Wal-Mart and Joann’s fabrics to do a few errands. I did very well in both stores. In fact mom dropped two things and I got them for her and brought them up to her knee. Mom did not put on my gentle leader as she is going to wait until I am no longer fighting it before using it in public. Mom did not take her walker but used a shopping cart instead. I wore my new red harness and it was great. The little pouch worked well.
Our house is a mess and it is stressing mom a little. Between getting ready for the yard sale on Friday and the trip on Monday mom has piles everywhere. I like them as I sniff and reorganize them for her. I made sure to get my smell all over the mats so the dogs who receive them will know who helped make them.
I am getting excited about our vacation. I do not understand most of it but I am sure it will be fun. We are going to stay on my mom’s friend’s ranch for a night and then we are going to meet a bunch of people with their SD’s. Then we are going on a train to see my breeder. She has a whole house full of Norwich I get to play with including my sister.
Mom is taking her laptop so hopefully we can do a couple entries while we are gone.
