Today I went with mom all around town. We went to the clinic today as she volunteered. Then after she got home we went to the car dealer to make sure her air bag wasn't one of the recalled ones and things were okay. We came home after stopping by Petsmart for a bit. Then we went to Office Dept so she could get a new mouse. Well when a Black gentleman walked up mom had a flashback and was quiet for a moment. Well I got in between here and the gentleman and made sure she had her space for she was having a hard time holding herself together. I kept checking on her and making sure he gave her room and we got what she needed and we left. I got so much praise when I got home for what I did for I did it without her giving me a command for the first time. So I am so proud of myself.


Had a thunderstorm last night and went out with mom...

There was a thunderstorm last night and I cuddled up against mom throughout it. Later mom took me into town so that she could mail something. We went into a mail store that had a cat that was curled up in it's cat bed. Well the kitty got up and came over to the counter to check me out. I paid no attention to it and kept my eye on things around mom while she mailed something. After that mom talked to a man about her CB radio and where he could go to get it peeked and tuned. When we got home Big Sissy was so happy to see us to where she was wagging her tail and sniffed me to see where all I had been.


Winter storm coming in....

Been learning what all mommy and grammy do when they get ready for a winter storm that is coming in tonight. They made sure we had plenty of food because we live out in the country and they don't plow back here. Momma and Grammy don't dare drive on it either. I hope Momma is able to go to her Parrothead meeting so we can collect the donations for the Humane Society and the Clinic she volunteers at as well. We might not be able to do Bingo Friday if we get another round of winter weather. Mom called and let the head person know about it and she told her if the schools in the town are called off then the Bingo will be called off as well for the safety of those who attend it as well as those who volunteer for it because of the roads. So we shall see how that turns out.


Been a sad and solemn week...

This past Monday mom and Grandma were really sad when they came home. But I noticed someone was missing. They didn't bring Champ home. Well evidently they had him put to sleep because he had some sort of stroke to where he wasn't able to walk and get up and get around. He was 14 years old. I will miss him for he would always follow me around the yard when he was able to walk. Me and the others have been going over to the spot where he laid down at by the clock and sniffing there along with where his bed used to be in Grandma's room. It's not the same without him. Mom misses his barking. The place is a lot quieter now because of that. We will all miss him.


Went out and about for the day

Well I went with mom to the doctor's office for the second time. Then we went to the Pharmacy to pick up her medicine. Then we ran to the gas station to fill up the car. After that we went home. Around four we went back into town so mom could see what the BPW was like for here and see if she was interested in joining it. I did fine until I heard the thumping of the weights from the gym upstairs and thought it was thunder. So mom and grandma are going to have to work on that with me by dropping the small weight they have on the floor now and then to desensitized me so that that doesn't scare me. Oh well my training is never done.


Went to Wal-Mart with mom...

Well I went to Wal-Mart again. I stayed at mom's side as she pushed the cart and walked along side it as she pushed it. I had on my shoes so my feet didn't get burned on the pavement outside as well as so I could walk on the tile floor inside. Alot easier to do than in my bare feet.

Mom went and found some breakfast sandwiches and got them out of the freezer and put them in the basket. Then we went and found a couple other things mom needed. Well when we walked by the center display with a TV playing the great punpkin Charlie Brown I didn't particularly care for the loud noise from the speakers underneath the display and wanted as far as possible from it. So mom needs to work on that with me. She stopped and got me to focus on her and do a sit and lay down and then gave me a treat a couple times. But I still need some work on that. Still not sure what to think of it though.

When we got home mom took me out of my vest and boots and then let me go run loose and get my energy out in the back yard. Not to sure of what to think of the displays that make loud noises though.


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.
