I had a great time out with my big pal Icy. We walked to the bus stop and rode the bus to the Health Centre and back and an elevator up and down. He rode both like a pro. We even walked by a cafe in the Health Crentre and he didn't even look at the tables or food. Then we waited in the ward for a little over an hour. Icy drank from a cup and had a dog treat.
He was itching to leave by the time we left but he was very good and continued to pace himself with me. He lay the whole time or sat between my legs and watched people. It was raining buckets. It's not a day I could have gone on my own; the distance and the wettness. I wasn't jittery even when I found we were there on the wrong day for the appointment!! He got lots of pets and praise from strangers. In general they kept their distance. Oh I used an ATM too while he sat. At least now I know I can do it. Everyone was very accomidating.
I talked on the phone with Star. She did a lot of talking! Dave said she was a little calmer afterward. She still howled the whole time. Just walked around complaining. *lol*
