DAY 708: Friday, 2/14/14 [Daily Diary Pick]

Apparently, today is what the Humans call Valentine’s Day. That’s when they give each other treats to show how much they like each other. Unfortunately, the treats are usually chocolate, so we Canines have to stay away from them—-not that we want to, but they’re not really good for us.

I’m having a grand time with my buddies at Dr. Roman’s house. I heard that Bob left Pennsylvania this morning but ran into a snow storm and traffic jams just north of Dayton, Ohio, so he pulled off and spent the night in a hotel. It’s a good thing that he’s safe, but it’s too bad he couldn’t find a place where he would have playmates like I have here.

Humans are so unpredictable. The folks at Dogster told us that they were discontinuing the community forum, which is where my diaries have been, so I had Bob create a new Web home on Now, the Dogster folks are saying they have changed their minds and will keep the community forum. Well, I suppose that’s a good thing, but now I have to decide whether to keep my diaries in one place or the other—or to continue posting in both locations. It’s not more work for me ‘cuz I only have to dictate it once, but poor Bob has to post it twice. Then again, he has nothing better to do, so….

Well, I guess Bob flew back to Pennsylvania without me today to load up our stuff and drive back to Phoenix. He said he’d be back to pick me up in about a week or so. I don’t mind; I’m having a grand time with my pup pals at Dr. Roman’s house.

My diary got a “like” from an interesting blog: Check it out.

Oh, boy! Oh, boy! Oh, boy! I’m so excited. I’m going home tonight with my vet, Dr. Romans. See, I started chewing my tail again, and Bob was afraid he might have a problem taking me on the plane again, so he contacted Dr. Romans from Flagstaff, and it turns out that she is in the Phoenix area today. So, we made arrangements to meet her. I will look after her until Bob drives through Flagstaff on his way back to Phoenix from Pennsylvania. But you know what I’m really excited about? She’s got four Canines looking after her, and the last time I stayed at their house, we had a grand time playing. I can’t wait to see my buddies again.

Bob went shopping today for a new bed for our new bedroom. I gave him very explicit instructions before he left for the store:
1. It must be at least a queen size so I have plenty of room to stretch out on it.
2. It can’t be too high off the floor ‘cuz the bedroom isn’t big enough for me to get a running start to hop up there.
Unfortunately, Bob doesn’t always listen to me the way he should, so we’ll see what he brings home.

I discovered something else I like about the place we’re moving to. There’s a little park just down the street with plenty of room for me to run and play. Now all I need is lots of little guys to play with. I’m sure that once word gets out that I’m in town, they will start crawling out of the woodwork.

I had to laugh at Caleb this morning. When Bob got up, he looked out the sliding door and saw me sitting on the patio, so he slid open the door, let me in, and locked the door. When he turned to go into the kitchen, he heard a tapping on the glass. It was Caleb standing there on the patio trying to get in. He had been swimming in the pool. “Oh, I’m sorry,” said Bob. “I didn’t know you were out there.” Caleb glared at me and asked, “Biscuit, why didn’t you tell Bob I was taking a swim?” I just looked back up at Caleb and grinned. Hee hee.

Alex is determined to make things work out with the cats. He talked to his mom about it, and she recommended getting one of those pet gates and putting it up between the kitchen and the living room. That way, the cats can be in the kitchen and I can be in the living room; we can see each other but not touch each other, which will give us time to get used to each other. And my friend Mary Ann suggested giving the cats come catnip to calm their nerves. See, I told you before that Mary Ann is a smart lady.

Sometimes Bob just needs a good, swift kick in the pants. He’s been going back and forth about whether or not we should move in with Alex and Caleb, and I finally just put my paw down. “Doggone it, Bob! I’m moving in with these guys,” I said “and if you know what’s good for you, you will too.” So, Bob finally told Alex that we would move in. Oh, we have to go back to Pittsburgh next week and collect our things there, but then we’ll drive back before the end of this month. Unlike Bob, Alex and Caleb are pretty self-sufficient, but I suspect they’ll need my help from time to time as well. That’s OK. That’s what I’m here for.

Phoenix has a club called the Prime Timers that organizes social activities for gay seniors. Today, Bob and I went to a lunch they had. We met lots of nice guys, and, of course, they all fell instantly in love with me. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of those guys.

Whew! What a day. When I looked out our motel window this morning, I was so excited to see all that snow, but when we went out for our first walk, it sure didn’t feel right. I couldn’t roll in it or anything. It was coated with ice. I went slippin’ and slidin’ all over the place. I’m surprised Bob didn’t fall down. Whenever he does that, I always assume he’s playing, and I run and jump all over him.

All the people at the Quality Inn were so nice. Naturally, they all wanted to pet me. The shuttle to the airport was tricky, though. Because the interstate was covered in snow and ice, traffic was down to one lane. A semi-truck skidded ahead of us, but, fortunately, it didn’t slide off the road or anything.

The Pittsburgh airport was so nice. All the people at Southwest were so friendly and helpful, and the airport even has a special room for assistance animals to relieve themselves. It has a cement floor, and there’s even a fire hydrant in the middle of the room. Cute, huh? Oh, and there’s even a tub for humans that need a bath. Or, maybe it’s for us Canines. I’m not really sure.

The people on the plane were nice too. Bob and I got to board first, and there was even an older couple who volunteered to sit in the same row with us so that they could enjoy my company. Bob sat near the window, and the gentleman sat in the aisle seat so he could make sure I didn’t sneak over into the aisle the way I like to do. His and his wife were both very nice people, as were the flight attendants. They all wanted to pet me, and they even brought me water.

Once we got to Phoenix, we rented a car and drove to a friend’s house in the town of Laveen. I was so excited to see Alex. I had only met him once before, when he came to visit Bob and me in Flagstaff, but I took to him immediately. Alex and his roommate Caleb are very nice, and they each had another guest tonight. When Bob got ready to go to bed, he called me. Now, as a service dog, I should go when Bob calls, but I didn’t. I wasn’t being disobedient, though. You see, I’m a psychiatric service dog, and I can tell when somebody needs me—even if that person isn’t Bob—and tonight I could tell that one of the guys needed me more than Bob did, so I stayed there right beside him. Bob understood what was going on, but he didn’t say anything; he just left me there to do my thing. Sometimes I think Bob may be smarter than I give him credit for.

Alex has a very nice house with a fenced-in backyard, and there’s even a dog run! So, I can run and play all I want. And guess what else Alex and Caleb have. Three cats! I was so excited to play with them, but I guess they’re not used to a big dog like me, and they ran and hid. Alex had to put them in his room to keep me away from them. We actually came to visit Alex to see about moving here and renting a room in his house, which would be very nice, but the whole cat thing might make that impossible. We’ll see.
