First and foremost I want all my pals out there who are dealing with the bad weather (tornado,hail,rain,etc) that I am thinking of you and saying a prayer that you and your families are all okay and make it through the horrible stuff that is happening out there. I am sending POTW to everyone!

Now about my weekend. Friday night was pretty fun. Anna, Miranda, Dane and another neighbor boy came over and played with us for a long time. They played tag, frisbee, ball and chase. We had SO much fun! Mom told me I did really well with all the kids, even a small boy about 4 who came for a little. She said there may be hope for me yet. Saturday we didn't do anytyhing. The weather was crappy so we chilled inside with mom and dad while they watched TV. Mom did go out in the evening to help set up for Sunday's search training, but I wasn't allowed to go. Sunday was training day and mom said I did really well. My first scenerio it only took me about 5 minutes to find the person and mom said although my recall/refind wasn't rock solid, I did alert her and she was very happy with it. My second search was a little more difficult. I found the person in about 10 minutes, but he was down in some rocks. I didn't go down to him, but when I saw him I looked back for mom to see if she was coming and I didn't see her. I waited a few seconds and when she still didn't come, I went and alerted her. She said she was proud of me cause it was hard for me to go up and down the rocks and I did two recall/refinds really well. I could tell mom was VERY proud of me and my subject was happy too and played with me for a long time. We only did two scenerios, but we got to do something else... we got to go swimming!

They wanted to introduce us dogs to life vests and that's why we got to swim this time. Me, I'm use to it cause I swim in the pool, the creek and I even go tubing! The life vest didn't bother me at all and everyone thought it was really cool how well I did and that it didn't bother me at all. We actually swam a couple different places and needless to say, when I wasn't swimming cause it was someone else's turn, I was none too happy. But I wasn't the only one. Lily, the german shepherd police dog wasn't happy either and kept barking the entire time. Hey, what can we say, great minds think alike:) When we got home mom made me get a shower cause I was dirty and smelled like the creek. I knew it was coming so I wasn't too upset. Needless to say, I pretty much crashed last night from my busy day.

Today mom got an email from Susan, Tess's mom, and she said that Tess has the flu! Now dad is going to take me and Chloe to the vet to get our shots just to be safe. Mom is really worried about me cause of my issue, but I feel really good so hopefully I don't get it. I never had any direct or even close contact with Tess so chances are slim so keep your paws crossed that I don't get it!

Mom said the only thing that I have going on this week is that she has a monthly Midsar meeting, but this time I get to go cause they are doing a team photo and they want us dogs in it. Yeah! Other than that, I don't think I have much going on, but I will be sure to let you know if I do anything worth wild.

I wouldn't be happy if other dogs got to swim and it weren't my turn either. I love swimming!
