Chasing balls, the dog park in Bakersfield where her hommies are, clearing the beach of any and all sea gulls, chasing birds (period) and hanging out with her mom
No dog park in Simi Valley and smelly boys.
Balls, any kind... chasing Donya and chewing on Nac, when he was with us.
People food.... watch out for your nachos when she around.
She will walk any where as long as I am there. Hanging with Auntie Angie at Via Arte!
Hermione's best trick is understanding children with special needs.
I was doing the monthly Petsmart run to get cat supplies. It was adoption day. I wondered passed, I met eyes with this cute puppy. I hurried off to get the cat food and litter. I returned to look down the isle again at that cutie in the cage. I wanted a closer look. I started to pet her head. The urge hit. I could feel myself wanting to hold her. Knowing if I held her she would be mine, I fought against the feeling for some time. After the internal fight, I PICKED HER UP! That was it. She had a mommy. I sat there and petted her. I filled out the paper work and then got all the dog stuff I needed and took her home. She is the best thing, as are the cat, in my life!
Throw the darn ball!!!!! NOWWWW!
Hermione has achieved her therapy dog credentials thru Therapy Dogs, International.

This past week my mom and grandma traveled to Big Bear, CA. I didnt get to ride in the front seat as I do in mom's truck, grandma sat there. I did have the entire back seat to myself. It was a long drive with lots of curvy road. We arrived in Big Bear after a couple hours. I sure did need a walk. I walked around.
I got to stay in a hotel, a pretty swanky one. Mom made sure we were on the ground level, so I wouldnt bother people when I walked or ran in the room. I was lucky, cuz the weather was cool, so when mom and grandma went to eat I could sit in the car. The first night, I was a bit uneasy and needed help to get to sleep. I did wake my mom up when I needed to go out. Mom was worried when I didnt have a "movement." She did spend a lot of time playing with me making sure I was happy. I did miss my kitties.
The next day mom and granny went shopping. Mom or granny would stay with me as the other went to shop. I met a lot of nice people and kids, ever a few dogs on holiday, like me. Mom spent too much on some nice things. I sure got spoiled. I got bones to chew on at night in the hotel room.
On the third day, we drove and saw a few of the natural sights of a area. I got to go in one of the local museums. They even gave me a treat! That afternoon, my mom found a park. We stopped and she tossed my favorite red Kong ball. I lost interest, since I saw DUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! They were swimming in the lake. I sure did wanna play with one or two. I hopped in the water. I didnt go too far, but I sure did wanna make friends. I ran back and forth along the shore line. Those ducks didnt want to play. They did tease me. I would try to talk to them and they did talk back, but I dont speak duck. I tried to get mom to help me, but as usual, I was on my own. I got so excited I over stepped and fell in. I dont swim, never have. I did that day. Scared me to death. I swam back. I stayed closer to the shore. After while, we sent back to the hotel. I took a good nap. Mom and granny went to dinner then took me back to the park. I played bit more, BUT I was tired. We all went back to the hotel. I laid down and that was it.
The next day, we left. We all went back to the park. I played some and again tried to get those ducks to play. I tired out early. We loaded up and headed out.
I think mom was gonna kill granny, cuz granny got the directions all messed up. Instead of a simple 2 hour drive, it was almost 4 hours. Mom was not thrilled. We did stop so I could walk some and get a drink.
When we got home, I was in heaven. Mom returned my bed to her room. (She took my bed with us so I wouldn feel comfortable.) I chased my kitties. I ran in my back yard. I LOVED BEING HOME!!!!!!!!!!
For those of you interested I did have a couple HUGE "movements" which mom was happy about... silly humans!
