I felt a little better when I got up this morning. Mom was still worried about my tummy so I got just a little breakfast which was mostly rice. Then mom got out our dog class bag and I was very excited. Once on the road I noticed mom was going somewhere familiar. As soon as she made a couple turns I knew we were going to the dog park. Apparently since we are leaving town mom arranged for some of my friends to be there for one last play. When we first got there no other dogs were in the small dog area. So I just sniffed around and went potty. Mom noticed my tummy was still not good and I had runny stool.
Then my best friend Meadow the Beagle showed up. I was so excited to see her and her humans. Mom and I are really going to miss these great friends. More dog started showing up. Some I knew and some I did not but they were all very good and we played great together. Then a big dog came into the little dog area. Mom started to go over to the dog’s owner. It was our friend Sweet Pea and her mom. Sweet Pea is also a service dog. We only were able to visit with t hem for a little bit as we had a private lesson with our trainer.

When we got to the lesson our trainer gave mom a very nice note explaing how we have been doing access training with her and that we are prepared for public work. Mom was very pleased, not that she will show it to anyone but it is nice to have. Mom told the trainer about my tummy and she wanted to work me with no treats. I was not in favor of this but I had no vote. The trainer and her dog worked very close to mom and I. We did greetings and walk bys. Guess what I was perfect. All of the training in class yesterday paid off. The trainer then asked mom to work me without the gentle leader. I did perfect with no treats and no head collar. We did all kinds of things from the CGC class I was taking. Then mom left me with the trainer for the separation part. Mom thinks the reason I was standing up on the trainer yesterday was that I was alerting her to all her pain. Today while mom left me I was very good and only stood on the trainer once and that was when she had a stabbing back pain. The trainer was impressed that I knew about her pain and was trying to help. Then the trainer told mom that I could do everything to pass the CGC test and in fact I just did. Mom was so surprised and excited. The trainer explained that we had done the whole test without treats and a head collar so we passed. Then we took a break in the classroom and I got to play with the trainer’s dog who I like a lot. After I was done playing I did not fell good and threw up. After they cleaned up my mess we went back out into the store and worked a little but I was not feeling good then so we quit. I had been feeling good and having fun until that happened.
We then came home and I am resting. Mom says I do not get to eat until tomorrow morning and she pushed some pills down my throat. Mom thinks between the other treats and all the playing today is too much for me.

Mom has to go see her pain doctor but I am staying home. Mom says I need to just rest and get over this tummy thing. I am feeling a little better.

Okay I am back. Apparently mom did not like the looks of me and got out the thermometer. I told her I did not have a fever but she did not listen. So you know what happened next. Just as I thought my temp. was normal. I am actually feeling a little better. Mon is home from the doctor with new info. Basically she is doing all the right things with the head pains. The doctor thought it was very nice how I can alert mom to when they are going to get worse. She had two new possible diagnoses so mom is going to research them.
Well mom and dad are heading out to dinner with friends. I was going to go but mom said I am not well enough.
