Wow, what a day! This morning mom took me to her daytime class with her. I usually go to the night time one when there are only one or two people there. Thursdays is when everyone is there. Mom was real nervous on the way there. Boy did I show her though! Haha! We got there early and took a little walk. When we got back to class there was only two other people there still. I got in my spot under mom's desk and stayed right there. Make no mistake, there was a couple times during the day that I did try and poke my nose out, but mom pointed for me to get back there so I did. All day there were people that stopped by the desk and talked to mom. Not one of the people even knew that I was there! When we got ready to leave boy were people surprised to see me! Hahaha! I didn't bark or anything all day today! It was real important that I didn't bark or get into trouble today mom said since her teacher and the class were being reviewed by a guy that came in and watched for awhile. He never even knew I was there either! Yup, it was a really great day and we are going for a walk to the park down the street when it gets cooler out! I can't wait! :)

Mom and I waited patiently all day today for the Shuttle to go up tonight! Then it was time, we were in the house watching the last 9 minutes of the countdown... Then when it was down to the last 2 minutes and mom and I went outside.... We waited for what seemed like FOREVER.... Mom said, well, where is it... Did they cancel in the last 2 minutes.... Hmmmm.... Then a text came through saying "are you outside?"... Mom texted back yes... Another minute goes by... Wait, another text saying "lift off!"... We were happy and mom had her camera ready and all of a sudden, there is was! What a great view we have from home even though we live about half an hour from the Kennedy Space Center where it was! Snap, snap, snap went the camera and got a bunch of great pics! Here are some pictures below for anyone who wants to see to click on and check them out! Now, we have to find out just when that comes back so we are prepared for that great big loud boom that it makes!

Well, mom keeps laughing at me the last couple days! Ever since I have learned my new jobs helping her get things and all that when we are done I just keep on going! Today mom was doing reports for a long time and finally I had to get her attention. I stood at the coffee table and the phone was on it, I kept looking back and forth from her to the phone and when she didn't ask for it I poked my nose at the phone every minute or so and then looked at her again. WELL, she started laughing at me, A LOT!! Geeze!! Hey, at least I stood by it like that this time and did not just start picking them up and taking them to her like I did earlier today when she was doing her work! Haha! Yup, I really do love my job! :)

 

I Made New Friends!

Wednesday mom and I went to Kissimmee and met some Shelties friends. We met them on a Sheltie group and it turns out that they are here on Dogster, too! What a great time we had there with Oliver, Indy, and Gibson. We ran around the dog park and played with tennis balls. They worked on some agility stuff but I sniffed around and waited until it was treat time! They will be back our way in a few weeks and mom and I are going to go see them compete in Agility, I can't wait! We get to go see them again, make more new friends, see a competition, and go on another big road trip mom and I! Boy, we are sure FINALLY getting out and about more, I told mom that it was about time she stopped hiding in the house all the time since she has me to help her out now! When mom was sitting on the ground with all of us when she went to get up I was sitting next to her and she put her hands on me and pushed herself up off the ground easier than it usually is for her! So I have another new job for her now! We even practiced it again today. Oh, when she got home from class today she said that it was decided at her school today that starting next week I will be able going to her daytime classes with her and not just the night time ones! I can't wait! She said that people keep asking when she is going to start taking me with her. I have met her teacher and she is really nice. Mom's human son graduated college a couple weeks ago and yesterday started a new job at Universal Studios. He is very happy about that. That is what we have been up to lately! Until next time.... Have a great day :)

Ok, Just WHO Is Lassie??

Ok everyone, I went to Universal's Island Of Adventure today with mom, Blake, and Gregory. I did really good, even with that really loud thing that flew people through the air screaming right by where we were sitting. Mom said it was something called a rollercoaster I think. I don't get it, if they are scared enough to scream so loud like that then why were they on it?? Anyway, once again, not a single bark today at all! Well, since I was a baby and came to live with my mom people have always called me Lassie, just who is this Lassie? Does anyone know? Today I lost track of how many times I was called that! And something about a Collie, huh??? What is that? Ok, so that is my biggest questions, just WHO is this Lassie and WHAT is this Collie that people keep calling me??.....

 

I Got The Keys!

Hi all. Guess what, you know those rascally keys that I was learning to get, well boy do I get them now! Oh yes!! Yesterday mom took the phone, remote, a pen, and the keys and put them in different spots in the living room. Then she asked for each one and I went and got them all for her! I have to admit though that once I took the keys and jumped up on the couch with them and started tossing them around for a minute then I brought them to her. After we did that qute a few times with all the stuff we took a break on the couch. The remote and phone was on the couch too and you know what I did, I kept picking them up anyway! Mom was laughing! I think that I am really getting the hang of this new job of mine! Today Blake (mom's oldest human son) finished college and it happens to be his birthday so we are all going to Universal Studios for a couple hours. I get to go with them. Will let you know how I did later! :)

 

Guess What I Have Learned!!

I just HAD to tell everyone the latest on my service training, other than the going with mom to the concert and stuff! Last night mom thought she would see just how much I would do, and boy did I show her! She tossed the remote on the floor and asked me to get it, and I went right over and got it and brought it back to her! She was so happy that she tossed other things after, a camera case, eyeglass case, her school ID, checkbook, and the car keys. I brought every single thing back to her right away except for the keys. The keys I put in my mouth but it was so weird that I dropped them back on the floor. Mom and I worked on that again today and I am getting much better. I am so close to getting over how weird that is with all the keys! Oh, today mom asked me to get the phone for her, which will be one of my most important jobs for her and I did it, yup, just like that! Mom and I are learning a whole lot together and having a lot of fun doing it! Mom said that I am learning to be a wonderful little worker for her! :)

 

Mom And I Went To See A Concert Today!

Hello friends. Well, today was another brand new thing for mom and I. We went back to SeaWorld to see a concert, that is what mom called it. It was a huge crowd in a big place and everyone sat on seats and listend to loud music. Well, that is everyone but me got to sit on a chair. My spot was right at mom's feet. Mom said that people making all the noise were named Hall and Oats. What a silly name isn't it! I stayed right put the whole time, oh yes I did! Mom was nervous that I would be really scared of the loud noise. I sure showed her, haha! I got treats and mom brought water for me as always. I really wanted the chicken or whatever that yummy smell was that was all around us though! There were people right in front of us that mom was talking to, and by the way, I let them actually pet me! Anyway, turns out that they are from right where we are from back in upstate NY. And I can't forget to mention the silly bunch of guys that had silly wigs on and were dressed silly, mom said that they looked like they had gotten stuck in the early 80's! They were funny to watch, they were in our section. Here are some pictures that mom took, hope that you like them! Oh, quick note about the photo that says sign language guy, this is a guy that did sign language to the whole crowd when the band was singing! We thought that was pretty cool! :)
