Went out on the boat again..

Today I went with mom out on her Uncle's boat again. I was very well behaved. I laid down on the floor of the boat when mom was okay. But when her Uncle's friends came and started gathering around his boat I could tell mom was starting to have an attack. I got up on her lap by standing on my hind legs with my front paws on her lap and licked her in the face. I got up on the seat with her and laid my front paws across her lap and continued to lick her until she was able to get her attack under control. I remained laying on her lap for a while until I was sure she was okay. Then I just laid on the seat of the boat right next to her. When we got off the boat I did my duties in the grass and was praised for it. We are now home and boy am I pooped.

 

Went to Wal-Mart for the first time

Well mom took me with her to Wal-Mart for the first time. I wasn't too sure about all the people and these big cage like things rolling around on the floor. I was a good girl just kind of focused on all the new sounds and things around me. Kind of taking things in and getting used to them. Mom was pushing a cart and I stayed behind it next to her as she pushed it. Still not sure whether to walk next to her or the cart yet still. So working on that. I smelled the bread from the bakery and food from the deli and just sniffed and watched everything going on around me. Every now and then I would look up at mom and see if she was okay. Going to need to go there more so mom can get me used to places like that more.

 

Went on a long trip with mom...

Mom and I went to her CB tech just outside of Harrison, AR. I pretty much slept all the way there. Mom went into the restaurant to get some lunch to wait for the CB Shop to open. I sat and laid underneath the table and was quiet and well behaved. I just need to work on not wanting out of places in such a hurry and to be patient. We then went over to the CB Shop and I met Mr. Russ. Wasn't too sure of him but was well behaved. He put Mom's new CB antenna together for her and showed her how to do something and then we left. It was just starting to rain when we left. Mom drove through the rain off and on as we were going home. I didn't particularly care for it either and got my harness hook from the seatbelt twisted. We finally got home and I was so happy to be home. I was so wore out from the trip I went to sleep on my doggy bed.

 

I learned a hard lesson....

Well a couple weeks ago I was caught eating one of the mushrooms in the back yard. Well mommy went and looked up if they were poisonous to dogs and they were. So she looked at the warning signs and kept an eye on me to make sure I was okay. Well I started to hallucinate and drool and not be myself which was not good. So mom took me to the vet ASAP. The vet said she got me there in time because I knew the warning signs as well as her knowing exactly what I ate which helped the vet tremendously with my treatment. So I stayed at the vet a couple of nights.

Now mom goes and patrols the yard looking for mushrooms and pulling them up with a glove on as well as raking where fungus is on the ground and picking that up as well. Grammy and mom went and applied fertilizer with a high amount of nitrogen in it to the yard as well which is supposed to help kill those from what they found out about it.

Mom also research as to whether frogs or toads were poisonous to dogs as well because of the toads that are in the yard at night and after it rains. So because of that at night she walks me around the yard on a leash to make sure I don't go after a frog or toad. She found out that those are poisonous as well. The bumps right behind their eyes on their heads are a gland that secretes poison. So she keeps me away from those as well. I hope sharing what my mom has learned in my journal helps others parents to know what to do and such if it ever happens to them. I don't wish it on any one though after what I went through.

 

Went to Parrothead event for first time...

Well today mom put my doggie shoes on me for the first time. I wasn't too sure about them at first. And then eventually I got the hang of waling and running in them. We went to Pet Smart to see if we could find big sissy Amber a set of them to fit her but they didn't have any. So we left there and went to Harp's grocery store and got some cole slaw and another salad and some cheese slices like Grammy had asked is to get. Mom also got some ice as well too for the coolers as well so she could take Her and I something to drink for the event.

Well I got in the car and we went to Maumelle State Park for the event. There weren't many people there at first. But then they all started arriving. Mom walked by this huge grill thing that startled me the first time by it. But after walking by it a couple of times going to and from the car to get our stuff I was okay.

I smelled some different foods that I had never smelled before. Mom said it was crawfish and it tasted something like shrimp. She let me sniff one and I wasn't too sure of it and backed away. After we ate we just sat around. I stood watching everything that was going on. Then some kids had a beach ball and I was wanting to go play with them and mom said "Leave it" so I just stood there and watched.

Eventually we packed everything back up in the car and headed home. I fell asleep on the way home in the car. Thank goodness mom was able to make it home before it started raining. I don't like thunder or rain is why so I was glad to be at home when that started coming down. Mom gave me my medicine to help with that and I just laid down next to her where I felt safe and fell asleep from being all wore out from the day.

 

I passed my tests...

Well I passed my advanced obedience test as well as my CGC test with flying colors. The bonus part was I went and did the same exact test again with mom's mother and passed with flying colors there as well. So now mom has to send off the form for my CGC from the AKC. She is so proud of me. I have been getting lots of loving from her ever since.

Unfortunately tomorrow is when I have to go to the doctor to get spayed. I am not going to enjoy that. I have to stay overnight to make sure I recover okay and then they pick me up the next day and stay quiet when I get home from what big sissy told me. Not looking forward to that. But at least I know I will get spoiled with love while I recover from it.

 

Went out and about today with Mom

I got to go with mom today around town. We went to her doctor so she could get her blood drawn for her neurologist. Then we went to the Pharmacy to pick up her medicines. After that we went to a hardware place to see if she could find something to hold a cord and didn't find it there. So we went to Lowes and found something there. I was startled at first by the big machine they use to go up and down on when we were there. Mom got me to sit and focus on her and then praised me by giving me a treat. Then we went to Wal-Mart to get some motion Sickness medicine for me as well so I don't get car sick when I ride in the car. I was pooped when we got home.

 

Been working on my training..

Well Mom has been working on getting me to sit when she is out and about as well as taking me to new places and such in uniform. Still not too sure about men and I know I am to not be petted while in uniform as well so I step away from people when they try and then mom asks them to please not pet me I am at work. Mom has also been dropping things like pans, ringing a cow bell, and more here as well to get me used to sudden noises and such to help me with my training as well. So hopefully I will pass when the finals come about and also get my CGC as well. So we shall see. I sue hope so I don't want to let mom down.

 

Working on letting people pet me and touching....

Went to Petsmart today with mom to work on letting people pet me and sitting while mom is talking to them. In fact there was this one lady I really liked and let pet me. In fact after she pet me I went up to her for more attention but sat back down when mom told me to and did so like I am supposed to do. We also worked on touching when we were at home as well.

Looks like Mom's nieces will be coming over for the weekend so maybe they could help me work on the touch command as well as me letting someone pet me and staying in sit or lay down position. I sure hope so. I really don't want to let mom down.

 

First Class of Advanced Obedience...

Well I had my first class of advanced obedience tonight. I had to learn to let people pet me and to sit and stay when they petted me. So mom and I have a lot of work to do on that. I also was learning to "Touch" something as well. Every time I got it right I got praised and rewarded. When I would let someone pet me I would get treats as they were petting me to let me know I was doing it right. So we have a lot of work to work on. Pretty much everything in this class is kind of part of the CGC test as well. So this will be interesting.
