Got a bath today..

May 3rd 2012 10:00 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Not too happy right now after getting a bath. Even though I don't care for them I still behave and do what mommy says to do when she is giving me one. She said I had to get all cleaned up so I could go with her to the local festival. So I guess I will be going in uniform with her to help her out when she has a panic attack from the huge crowd that will be there. I never knew that what I did since I was a pup was actually considered helpful to mom. So at least I am doing something right by trying to comfort her when she has a panic attack even though that's what I have always done since I was a pup when I noticed her having one. Makes me proud when I am able to help my mom come out of one. So I guess I will get to go with her to the event this weekend. I went with her one year and someone came up and told her that she wasn't allowed to bring her pets. This was before I was an ESA and SDIT. Poor mom had to take me home and then go alone. When she got home she had two or three panic attacks and I had to help snap her out of it with my buddy Laddie. We both went up to her and started giving her kisses to help comfort her and get her to relax. So this should be interesting to get to go with mom as a SDIT this year.


Went to Toad Suck Daze with Mom..

Well I went with mom to the local event here called Toad Suck Daze in uniform. They had this guy who drove by us wearing a green tux and hat called a Toadmaster. Not too sure why but that is how the event is done. It wasn't too crowded when we went so mom did okay until the crowd started showing up. I let some kids pet me and some of the adults pet me as well. One of the local DJs thought I was sweet and reached over and petted me. Mom even noticed a little girl who looked at me as if she wanted to pet me so we turned around and went back so she could pet me. The little girl said thank you. When we were walking by a basketball boot the guy at the booth didn't notice a large chunk of gladd on the ground and popped the ball and it made a big booom. Scared both me and mom for a moment there but I realized it was that and was okay after that. Mom reached down and petted me to let me know it was okay. We walked by the Police booth and they were trying to figure out where the boom came from and mom told them what had happened so they knew about it. They told her thanks and that they appreciated her letting them know about it because they were trying to figure out where that boom came from.

As we were leaving the event mom started to have a panic attack and stopped for a moment so I pulled her on back to her truck to keep her moving and when we got to the truck she sat down and focused on me to try and get her panic attack under control. Took her about 3-4 minuted but once she got herself together she was fine. I licked her in the face and let her pet me to help her relax. After her attack we went into the coffee shop so she could get something to eat. I was a good girl and layed down on the floor next to mom like I am supposed to. She even gave me a few french fries as well from her lunch. When she finished lunch we went back out to her truck and she lifted me up into the cab and fastened me in with the seatbelt attachment for my harness and we headed home. Boy was I pooped when I got home but Mom rewarded me for being such a great girl by giving me a rawhide square to chew on. Boy did I love that!!


Found out what where Toad Suck Daze came from...

Well I was listening to mom talk to a friend on the phone yesterday and she was telling them where the name Toad Suck Daze came from. Well from what I heard the story behind it is back when there was just a ferry boat to get across the Arkansas river there was a tavern they would go into and sit down at. Well the locals would always complain about how all they ever did was sit there to where they got as fat as a TOAD from SUCKing down all that beer and coming out of the tavern all DAZEd. Hence the name of the festival. Now today there is a lock and dam named Toad Suck Lock and Dam that crosses the Arkansas river along with a town on the west side of the river called Toad Suck, AR. So not too sure where the name came from other than what I heard mom telling her friend on the phone. So hope that explains where that came from to all my friends. Hope you find that interesting because I'm not really sure what to think of a town being named after a type of frog.


Mom got me some more bandanas...

Well looks like mom went and got me some more bandanas for me to wear. She got another pink paisley a bit darker, a hippie like love one, a light blue one with dogs on it, and a blue one with bones on it. She also found a flag like bandana and I think she will have me wearing that one for the 4th of July. I don't mind wearing them. They are alot better than that heavy winter coat she got for me for during the winter. I can't seem to scratch the fleas when I have that coat on. Oh well. At least I can stay alot cooler wearing these instead of doggie clothes.


Got to meet mom's niece...

Well, mom's niece came by to give her grandma some flowers. While her dad helped Grandma set up her new TV in her bedroom Emma (mom's niece) came in the bedroom with me and mom. Emma was watching me as I laid on my doggy bed next to mom's desk her computer was on. Then I finally got the nerve and got up to see if I could get some petting from Emma. She wasn't too sure of me at first until her aunt told her it was okay and I only wanted her to pet me. Boy did I love it when I got some attention from her. I was enjoying a butt rub with my nose high in the air. Well when she left I just stayed in mom's room and only barked when I saw Mom's brother. For some reason I'm not too sure of him and don't know why. I guess because of how tall he is. Who knows. Other than that it went okay with Emma. I think I like all the attention I can get from her. Hope she comes back again.


Went with mom to Parrothead (Jimmy Buffett fans) Meeting

I got to go with mom to Old Chicago for her Parrothead (Jimmy Buffett fans) meeting. I was a good girl and was quiet and stayed underneath the table like I was told to do. I also went with mom to the rest room and sat down like I was told to do. Alot of the servers were coming by to see me and pet me. So I seemed to get alot of attention because of me being there. Mom didn't have any access challenges which is good. All her Parrothead friends came by and said hi to me and petted me. Was kind of interesting. I enjoyed the ride there and back in mom's truck. I really have fun when I get to go places with my mom. Hope I can do this again.

What an interesting week...

Well looks like Monday mom and I both went to see the doctor. Me for my paw that hurts and skin condition because of allergies, and Mom for her bronchitis. So I got to go with her into the doctor's office. I was very quiet and stayed out of the doctor's way by moving when he scotted over on his rolling stool. He checked mommy out and told her what to do and said to come back if it continued to be a problem.

Well Mom has been getting better slowly but surely. I still help remind her with to take her medicines as well as when she has an attack like she did yesterday by staying with her and helping her through it.

It was really interesting this week having Mom's nieces over. I will say one thing I sure do love all the attention mom's nieces give me especially when I get a milk bone biscuit from the youngest one.

So glad mom got me some MuddLuks for me to wear on my feet so that I don't get my feet burned walking in the parking lots and the asphalt. They feel kind of awkward but are alot better than walking in my bare feet. Will just have to get used to them is all. Mom plans on getting me some high quality shoes down the road. Well guess I will go take a nap now that the little ones are gone finally. Boy does a 6 year old and 10 year old wear you out when your an old dog.


Been going to church with mom

Well I have been going to church with mom for the past three weeks and it is okay. I seem to get alot of attention and love from the kids and people there when I go with mom. Poor mom has an anxiety attack when the people come to her greeting her during the church welcome and I have to help her through it by coming up to her and getting her to focus on me and pet me. I don't seem to mind the loud music coming from the live band either. I really enjoy being able to lat down on a cool tile floor instead of carpet though. Feels good and cool compared to the carpet.

It will be interesting when the time comes when mom gets a puppy to add to the household. Not to sure about that but we will see. At least it will be a girl and mini aussie. So she will always be smaller than me no matter what. So that shall be interesting to see how I can handle that. The one who might not handle it well would be Aquilla Marie who already growls at me for no reason when I only want to come in grammy's bedroom and visit her. Grammy was surprised that Champ let me lay down on his dog bed with him but I did. Kind of nice to have a buddy to sleep with.


Went to Spay and Neuter clinic with Mom...

Well thank goodness I didn't have to go there to get spayed because I already was. But I got to lay under the table while Mom volunteered and stamped envelopes and put stickers on ziplocs for the medicine for the dogs who were getting spayed or neutered. Morris the cat even came up to me and nuzzled against me as well a few times. He seemed to just want someone to rub against more then anything. He let me sniff him to check him out as he did that too. He seemed okay. The other cats wouldn't come anywhere near me and just eyed me from a distance. We were at the clinic from 10 am to 1 pm and then mom went home. I got a treat when I got hom for being such a good dog too. Wonder what it will be like the next time Mom goes there to help out.
