Walks at the Lake

So mom and dad took me and Turner to the lake. Mom put on my Anxiety Wrap and away we went. First I was sniffing where Turner was sniffing and he peed on my head !! Rude!! Mom pulled me away, but he still got me. So mom and I went back to the truck to get cleaned up. Then we started our walk again. I did really good. There were a couple of school buses that kinda scared me, but I was still sniffing the ground. Mom held me while they passed and I didn't cringe at all. That was a first! We walked down by the waterfalls and I was alright. The noise was a little loud but I was alright. By the time we headed back to the car I was pretty relaxed, panting even. My ears were back but not pinned and my tail wasn't tucked at all. These are all good signs! We got home and mom gave us both a cookie!! Yum!! Slow and steady as always!

 

Company? Who are these guys??

Mom came home and took me and Turner for a walk - it was wonderful. We got up behind the house and got to run up and down the hill. I even snuck into the woods for a little private time... :) Mom was ironing her uniforms and we all heard this sound. Turns out the hunters who rent the basement were in town for a day. They stopped by to check in. Scared the living daylights outta me!! I ran into mom's room and hid out on my pillow there. Mom came in and got me on my lead. She walked me out to the living room staying between me and and these strange men (3). I was shaking so badly. Mom sat in a chair furthest away from them and put me along side of her so I can look and see who they are. They were all wearing camo and orange clothing and one still had his hat on. Boy was I shaking. Mom tried to treat me and I wanted nothing to do with it. Mom gave me some good long rubs and I settled a bit. Then she walked me back to the room after a few minutes and let me stay on my pillow and hide. After everyone left I came out and stood next to mom (she was sitting on the floor). I took a step closer and closer everytime she stopped petting me. Did this all on my own!! Then mom let me back into my crate and I ate dinner. We settled down to watch a movie and all was well....

 

Walks at the Lake

So mom and dad have taken me and Turner 2x's to the lake for a walk. Both times I had on my Anxiety Wrap. Know what? The walk wasn't too bad! It was colder today so mom put on my tie die shirt over the wrap and I was nice and warm! There were more cars on the roads today and I did exceptionally well!

I've got to tell you this crazy thing that mom does. Alright - during the evening I will jump on the sofa next to mom. She will lay her arm on me and either use the laser light with Turner or watch tv. Feeding me treats occasionally. Then out of the blue mom will give me a hug. I mean just hug me. I feel funny, and start to follow her all around. I think I actually like them. Hmmm.

Well tomorrow will be a big day. Mom is taking me to Rainy Day Farms for a few nights. Her and Turner are going to grandma and grandpas for a couple of nights. Hopefully I'll do alright (as long as she picks me up on Friday!) Wish me luck!!

So mom picked me up from Rainy Day Farms last night. I has sooooo much fun!! I played with the other dogs and got lots of treats and handling from the women there!! I did so good!! The said anytime I needed to be watched they would be glad to have me!! Yippee!!!! :) I was wagging my tail the entire time I got home!! Turner gave me the nicest playbow greeting when I got home! Missed him to!

So last night I was sitting on the chair and Turner was doing his staring thing at me. This drives me nuts!! Next thing I know Darcy walks up next to him. Put her head down and moved towards me sideways. This means touch time!! :) I pet her for about 20 minutes stopping once in a while and she would move in closer!! Then she went and laid down on a pillow. This is soooo huge... for her to come to me for touch is really big. When I come home she greets me at the gate with Turner - tail a waggin!! When we walked yesterday for about half of the walk her tail was all the way up and wagging. Even hubby noticed it!! He said, "Look she's smiling from behind!!"

 

Thanksgiving Adventures...

Sooooo, me, mom, dad and Turner took a ride over to grandma and grandpa's this weekend. it was about 3 1/2 hours of driving and we arrived. Boy are they in the woods!! Dad took my crate in the house so mom and dad could unload the truck. I'll tell you I was pretty scared. But mom had me on lead and I knew I was safe. Mom took me and Turner for a walk in this huge field outside of grandma and grandpa's house and I went potty with no problems. My nose was on overtime - all these new smells!! Got up on Wednesday and mom took me and Turner for a walk. Their driveway is so long - it's a dirt road and there are no other cars on it. It was great to walk in this new place with no cars to scare me! We saw, deer, rabbit, hawks and big fat grey squirrels.... Mom wouldn't let me off lead to chase the squirrels but it's alright. I came out of my crate all by myself and joined Turner on the bed. There is this bed on the porch that looks out onto the field. We layed there all day watching the birds and squirrels at the feeder!!

Then Wednesday late night Uncle Mark and Aunt Deb (mom's bro and SIL) came through the door. I knew Uncle Mark from when he visited us at home! Mom took us out for a walk (12:30 am) and we went back to bed. When I woke up the next day it was sleeting! Mom put on our coats and took us outside. When we got back in she put on my Anxiety Wrap - way too many people in this tiny house!! I was pretty nervous. The wrap helped sooo much! I actually layed on the bed, mom sat in front of me, while everyone was talking. I did real good!!

Everyone went out to dinner so Turner and I snoozed for a bit. Then mom and dad came back and started to load up the truck. Wahooo - heading home!! We drove back though the mountains (all covered with ICE!) and made it home after dark. Turner and I ran around the house and back yard playing for a bit!! I had so much fun....

Edit: Oh yea, grandma and grandpa we're thrilled with mom bringing me up from TX. Now that they've met me they both complimented mom for getting me here forever. They both agreed that mom did a great thing and that I'm real lucky to be here forever!

So mom and dad got up for work this morning. It was early and Turner was sleeping in another room. Mom put our food out thinking that Turner would hear his bowl and come eat. Well, turns out Turner was real comfortable and didn't come out. Mom went in to take a shower and I snuck over and ate Turner's food! :) Turner finally came out to eat and his bowl was empty!! Ha!! Ha!! He had that look of "where's my food?" ha! ha!

Of course I didn't eat my own food - Turner's is much better!! So mom picked up our bowls and put them up. That's alright - I got mine!! ha! ha!!

Mom came home and put our sweaters on. We went outside and she was covering the tractor - it's been snowing for 3 days now! Then she came up the hill where me and Turner were sniffing around. She made a left and headed down this really flat, straight trail. Well Turner took off like a shot! So I, of course, followed! Then we went into the woods. I was jumping over down trees and clearing brush just like a deer!! It was soo much fun!! Me and Turner were running laps from the trail down the hill through the woods, up the field and back down the trail!! Boy am I getting fast on these hills!! I had a great time and was panting when we were done!! Boy did I need that exercise!! Being scare takes alot out of you!! It felt sooo good to just let it all go!! Mom says we can only do this on Sundays because of the unknown hunters in the woods. Saturday we heard 2 shots in the woods behind the house. Mom and dad still don't know who those guys are! Guess mom will post the property so we're safe! Anyway, I can't wait for the next Sunday so me and Turner can run like the wind!!

 

Disappearing Act - Act 1

I came home as usual and let the dogs out to run up the hill. We've got 13 inches of snow and it is about 3 degrees with the wind chill. Winds have been up to 35 mph and the snow has drifted in some areas. Alright, so the dogs come out and Darcy runs up the hill - well more like hops since the snow is belly high!

Turner comes out and looks at Darcy like - no way! Snow's too deep. She does the playbow, sneak left, sneak right and takes off. There is a little runoff area to the left of the hill. Darcy, with Turner in chase behind her, jumps over the runoff, and literally disappears into a snowbank! Then POOF! She came popping out of the snow with that totally confused look of WHAT? on her face!! She ran up the bank, turned around and looked at me and hubby. I swear, I almost peed my pants laughing!! She has the greatest facial expressions ever! Well, her and Turner hopped some more - the snow was way too high to run in - and then headed back to the house.

I've got trails shoveled in the back yard for them for potty breaks. Darcy will raise her paws now when I put a sweater on. I love that!! If I head to wear the sweaters are she follows with a waggin tail. She's making small steps, but they are huge in my eyes!!
