Last night I went with mom to her monthly Midsar meeting. They were taking a team picture for a newspaper and also to be put on the trailer, and they wanted us dogs in the picture. It was nice to see everyone together and I met a lot of people who aren't on the K-9 team who were really nice. After the picture us dogs all had to go to our crates in the cars cause we weren't allowed in the meeting hall. No biggie, it wasn't hot anymore so I just took a nap. A couple hours later the meeting was over and we headed home. That's when the fun began.
t was raining a little when mom came out of the meeting, but nothing major. Boy did that change! By the time we hit the turnpike it was raining really, really hard. The closer we got to home, the worse it got. It rained so hard we could barely see out of the windshield and mom had the wipers on full blast. We usually fly on the turnpike, but this time we were lucky if we went 30 miles an hour. Mom wanted to pull off a couple times and wait it out, but all the areas where you could pull over were full of cars so we had to keep going. There were a few times the car felt like it was sliding on ice. Mom said that we were hydroplaning. I don't know what that is, but I can tell you it wasn't fun! Mom was soooooooo nervous and she kept rubbing my face. Now normally I just like to sit in the seat and not be touched, but I knew how upset mom was so I just laid there and tried to stay calm so she would calm down, and it worked. Mom was still nervous, but she wasn't as upset by the time we got home. She did a really good job driving in that mess (thunder and lightening too) and I was proud of her. With that being said, I was glad to get home and out of the storm cause it was kind of scary too. I just couldn't let mom know how scared I really was. She told me that I was pawsome and kept her calm. That's my job, take care of my mom:)
That was my only excitement for the week. I don't know what we're doing this holiday weekend, but I hope it's something fun:)
We want to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Memorial Day and say "THANK YOU!" to all who help protect our country and our people.
