What a day it has been, last night skindad and a friend started a fire in the fireplace out back and and sat around talking and playing with me.
If I was not chasing and getting a ball I was watching the woods to make sure nothing snuck up on us. It was so much fun with the "big dogs" letting me hang out with them. Deer, opossums, and bigfoot could not sneak up as long as I was there. Oh it is so wonderful to be good at a job, but boy was I tired when after midnight we went to bed.

Morning came and skindad took me to the gunstore and then to Gander Mountain. It is one of my favorite places cause I like everyone there and a skinclerk always gives me a treat. After that we went to a new building. Lots of dog smells in fact I knew dogs from my therapy class had been there.

Skindad walked me up a long ramp and we went into the lobby and sat down. Two other dogs were there and a door opened and a skinperson called them and their assistant in. I could see very little and lots of smells came from the room, not all from dogs.

At one point the door opened and in we went. What a big room with rubber floors. When a new skinperson called us over and began touching me all over it was then I realized that the TEST had begun.

I had to sit, down and stay, come when called, walk through a group of people with strange dogs and cats. Have strangers pet me. Be almost attacked by skinpeople with wheels and metal sticks. Walk past food on the floor have some skingirl wave a toy at me and then have a group of skins mob me with skindad telling me it's alright the whole time or to leave it. Then off to another room.

In the other room were skin teachers from the class who said how great I had done. Quite alot of positive comments on how fine a Heeler I am.
Then a skinperson told skindad that I had passed with a perfect score and that November 15th was the graduation party. Skindad was quite proud of me and I of him. We are one great team.

Tonight I am going to crash and sleep............

Tonight for therapy class we went to a nursing home and visited the residents there. All us dogs and skinpeople met in the large room. Wow you could feel the energy all of us were nervous and anxious at the same time. After about 40 minutes of visiting we returned to the big room and all of us dogs crashed and rested while our skin partners talked about a written test they have to take,

Most of the residents were nice and one elder skinperson even knew that I was a herding dog. I heard him say that I bet she would like a steer or a sheep to chase. The truth be told- deer, squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons and even skunks I like to show who is the boss on my land.

Soon will be the big test that I have to pass to be certified.

I just got home from going over to Yellow Springs and seeing a Zoimbie Walk Event. Skindad and I met Skingrandkids and family there.
I knew who they were when we first pulled in the parking lot even with the windows up and the make-up and all the other zombies around. Us dogs really have it over those humans when it comes to senses.

Well there were hundreds of zombies and they all stumbled down Main Street and then went and listened to the band. There was food stands, a few other dogs. flashing lights and lots of people both alive and dead who touched and petted me. I had a good time just sitting on a wall with skindad besides me taking it all in.

As a rookie therapy dog I felt I had to give comfort to those humans who were in the last moments of their mortal lives and to the undead as they were entering their new identity. (at least until they tried to take a bite of me)
