Grocery shopping and Graduation

Mom took me for a little walk as her back was hurting. I then went grocery shopping with her and dad. I was very good. Mom used the cart because of her back and I heeled perfect next to her. I have gotten very good about the shopping cart. Once the shopping was all done we hurried home so mom could have something to eat before our final intermediate obedience class.
All but one person showed up to our graduation. Our trainer gave the humans a slip of paper with things to do through out Petsmart. We worked on all of the things we have learned over the past 8 weeks. It was a lot of fun, as we keep running into other class members working on the list. All of us did really well. One of the tasks was to do a sit stay in front of the birds. Well until today I did not know they had birds in the store. I was fascinated by the birds and wanted to chase them. Needless to say we spent a lot of time here until we got it right. Mom says they sell the birds and you can take them home. I want mom to buy me one for my graduation present.
Once back in the classroom we all got our diploma. Mom forgot her camera but some nice people took pictures of me in my graduation cap. If we get one, we will post it. I got to play with some of the dogs and all of the people visited and commented on how well everyone has improved.
When we got home mom was wiped out and headed for the couch. I got up and cuddled with her and then alerted to her that her head was going to hurt. She knew I was probably right and she took one of her pills. She now has an ice pack on her neck for her head and a heat pack on her back. Mom is defiantly done for the day and so am I.

Congratulations on graduation, Dora!

And good work warning your Mom that a headache was on the way. That isn't something I am able to do, and I admire it so.

Thanks,
The alerting just comes natural to me and is easy .It is getting mom to listen that is the hard part. You never know it may just come to you as well.

YOU ROCK GIRL!! Awesome......
same as Iris said - glad you helped your mom out there.
I feel so sorry for your mom to have these terrible headaches.. I think you should tell her to move down here - this area is good for not having them ;o) And on top of that, we all need girls nights out on a regular basis after all ;o)
Hugs, Jolanda and sonja

Yes! Move out here so that we can hang out. :) Or, I suppose we could all move to Arizona...

My breeder / trainer is in Arizona. I could drop by and say "hi!"
