Well it's been almost a year now since mom wrote in my diary. We have been very busy. I got my certificate of achievement from therapy dogs international because mom and I completed 50 visits or more. I have lots of new friends in the places we go. Mom takes me to the groomer every other Friday. Ick today is the day. But that's really O.K. because I know when she picks me up she'll take me to see my friends. That's always a good day. I'm still scared of storms and didn't much care for Alberto coming over our heads the other night. I tore off the screen AND the wood part of our door and got into my crate all by myself. Mom didn't close me in. She let me stay wherever I wanted. She even brought me my favorite teddy bear to hold onto. Boy did I hold on. I was hit by a tornadoe at mom's house in 1998 when I was still a teenager. I never forgot. It was real scary. Mom quit working and is going to start something she calls college. I guess it's kind of like summer camp. I don't really know. I know she's happy about it. She said she would be home every day after school. I'll be waiting for her with my little sister Tuffy. She's such a spoiled silly little dog but mom seems to like her a lot so I play with her too. I even let her have my toys, and my bones. Sometimes she brings them back and puts them at my feet. She sure is cute for such a small fuzzy little thing. Well time to load up and head to the groomer. Have a nice weekend everyone. Don't forget your fathers. Their day is coming this Sunday. Aspen

Lots of things have happened since mom wrote in the diary. I have 2 wonderful places I go to each week. There are sooo many nice people waiting for me when I get there. Yeah, yeah, yeah... I still have to get the bath thing but that's O.K. I don't mind so much.
I had a best friend at one of the places we go that passed away a couple of months ago. Mom and I both went to his funeral. I felt kind of out of place and didn't know what to do so I sat next to mom and said nothing. When it was time to leave Mr Stuckie's daughter came up to us and said Mr Stuckie talked about me a lot and how much he loved me and enjoyed our visits. I was the ONLY person mom would let me sit with if she had to go away for a few minutes. Mom wants to post a picture of me and Mr Stuckie but she has to ask his daughter first if it's O.K.
It's after the first of the year now. Mom sent in my renewal form as soon as it arrived but I have not received my new license yet so we had to stop visiting until it comes from TDI. Mom said the check cleared last night so maybe it will come next week. I have lots more to say but daddy just got home so mom has to go say hello. More later, Aspen

Wow my new therapy dog vest arrived today. Mom sewed the patches on for me. She had a hard time getting the needle through so she made her fingers bleed... now there is a red spot on my ask to pet me I'm friendly patch. She'll get it off I'm sure. Tomorrow we are going to work at the kennel because mom's friend Roy is going out of town and mom is going to hold down the fort. That means I'm going to get yet another stupid bath. Darn I really don't like baths. I'm a good boy and when mom taps the side of the elevated tub I put my paws up there so she can lift all 110 lbs of me into the tub. I stand real still while she makes me a big soap ball. I don't mind all that so much. But then she gets this really loud, powerful dryer thing to blow all my dead hair off. YEAH.. I stand still for that too because I know when I get my bath I'm going somewhere to be petted. But Darn!!! Does she have to do this EVERY time? I'm starting to wonder what it's like to smell like a dog since I always smell like some fruity shampoo, or some foo foo stuff. Oh well if it makes her happy I guess I'll just smile and enjoy the day. At least I get to hang out with mom all day and meet and greet all the doggies coming to stay. Time for bed. Busy day tomorrow. G'night diary, Aspen Winter Winner AKA Polar bear.
