So much to update!

Hi every doggy!!! I know it's been a few years, and a lot has changed! My mom's agoraphobia improved dramatically for the better, with my help of course! I no longer get to go places with her, but that's OK as long as mommy is better. :) Mommy and Daddy got married almost 4 years ago and since then, I've gained two little sisters! E is my best friend, who would've thought a little old IG like me could find my soul-mate in a human toddler?! The baby is pretty sweet too...Mom doesn't like it when R and I have open mouth kisses, but, I sneak them anyway and she seems to enjoy them! ;) We have a house of our very own, and I enjoy having a big yard all to myself. Recently, I thought it would be a good idea to shimmy myself under the backyard fence and do a stint in jail over-night. The nice people at the shelter told me if my family never came to claim me, I could go home with them. Of course Mommy and Daddy and my sister (the baby wasn't born yet) came for me, and man, I've never seen Mommy so frazzled, sad, and anxious before. Daddy was really happy to see me too! Most recently my kitty sister Mau passed away from lymphoma of the GI. Mommy was really sad for a while, but I made sure I was there to snuggle and also comfort my brother Preston. I think that's about it for now!

 

PSD in training

Today Mom told me I am becoming a PSD (psychiatric service dog). My training starts tomorrow. We went to PetSmart and everything! We picked up a clicker and some training treats to get us started off right. Do you know how long it has been since I've seen my Mommy smile while we were out in a public place? A LONG TIME! No joke. She said that if I do well, I will go with her to school, go Sun Devils!, and every where else she goes. She said that would be the payoff to helping her and working hard. Sounds like I'm on the winning side of this deal! Mommy and I joined a new listserv for service dogs (or ones in training, like me) so we can get information and talk to other Mommys and Daddys and their PSDs. I worked hard when I was a show dog, but Mommy says I have to learn how to sit, down, sit-stay, down-stay, walk politely on a leash, come when told to, and just be "obedient". I don't know about the whole sitting thing...but, I'll try really hard. Mommy says that if I do well, we'll get a vest with some patches and embroidered letters on it and I can go with her...even while I'm still in training! So awesome! Daddy is still getting used to the idea he can't scare me for fun anymore..again, another perk I will be enjoying. Except, I like it when Daddy and I play chase me and I bark really loud at him (the only time I use my voice)...Mommy said no more barking. That's the only down-side. No fun Mom!!! Well, wish me luck guys!

 

It's been a while

So, a lot has changed since I've been on here last. My Mom was in Europe for a while and life has gone on. I moved to Tempe, AZ, and I like it so much more. The dogs in college are so much more fun than the snoots in Scottsdale. In July my Mom had to take my brother to go to the rainbow bridge. I got to go with them so I could say goodbye too. It's been weird without him here. I retired from showing and am now neutered. My tooth went off, so, Mom decided it was time to stop. I am major pointed and only needed a few more to finish, but, Mom didn't know what the point to be to spend the money if she wasn't going to use me as stud. They call it a pig tooth, but she said it gives me character. It's a good life snuggling with Mom and Dad. Daddy gives me a big hug and a kiss before bedtime every night. He likes to pretend he doesn't love me, but, between him and I, we're best buds. Mom said she's not ready for another doggy, so, maybe when she's ready, we'll get a sister for me. Until then, I'll keep my paws crossed. Since I moved out of my Grampa's house, I don't get to play with Aunt Chili anymore. That's okay. Well, time to be off. Gutten Haben!
