So things do change... Maybe for the better we don't know yet. Mom lost her job a few weeks ago, and it's been nice to have her home with me. She's been extra worried about money but that isn't anything terribly new. I've been extra busy lately helping her, but it's alright because she's also taken me for more long walks and spent time just being my mom.
Unfortunately she has been trying to figure out how to afford a brother or sister for me who can take over my job when I get older. I keep telling her she needn't worry because I'm never getting old and I'm gonna help her forever... I know... but I can dream right? It was rough watching her get her heart set on a puppy then lose her job and any chance of enough income to afford this sibling of mine.
So mom and I have been to a number of interviews and that has been a different sort of challenge. The people who call mom in to talk to her always seem so dismayed when they see me. I just don't understand it?? I'm really good and it's not like I will be a bother, I'm so much help for mom. She tells me that it is just the way things are but I don't know that I agree with her. She and I have come so far together it seems silly that these people can't see how great I am.
We're going to a new mental health doctor who I'm not sure I like, every time we go I stand in front of mom between her and the strange doctor. This new doctor doesn't actually believe in the use of service dogs but the rest of the office seems to be on board as well as moms therapist so I suppose everything will be alright. I have got to learn to make sure mom takes her meds since otherwise she tends to forget but that's fun.
Mom has been teaching me stuff she calls 'non' tasks... stuff she doesn't need me to do for her but that we both enjoy because it's just fun. She also drug out the agility equipment just for me and I've gotten to play on it more in the last weeks. Mom said we wouldn't be competing (which is a shame because I love it when people watch and cheer me on) but it was fun anyway.
I guess that's all for now cause I just can't think of any new updates.
