We did something totally different this past weekend... we went to visit Alison, Jan and Emilie. All the other times we had to stay home when mom and dad went, but this time we were allowed to go.
We didn't get there until later Friday evening so we didn't do much Friday. We had to stay in the basement though cause Jan is afraid of dogs and also cause we shed a lot and with Emilie always playing on the floor, they didn't want her getting all full of hair and possibly eating some when it gets on her toys. We totally understood that and were fine in the basement. It is heated and big. Mom brought Echo's crate for her and I had my dog bed. Of course we wanted to be with mom and dad so Echo barked a little, but got the hint really quick when dad came down. After that, we just chilled and mom did come down and play with us for a while. I must admit though, I didn't sleep much Friday night cause every little sound I heard freaked me out. It was just the sounds of the house (it's a old house) and the furnace going on and off, but without mom downstairs with us, it was kind of scary at night. Mom did end up coming down around 6am cause she didn't want Echo barking when Emilie got up. Mom curled up in my dog bed and slept for a little. Echo jumped in there with her first which was soooo unfair! But mom did kick her out then and let me sleep with her for a little. Finally, sleep!
Saturday everyone headed out to some museaum that Emilie could play with things so we chilled in the basement. When they got home, mom played frisbee with us for a while then she took a nap while Emilie took a nap cause mom didn't get much sleep Friday like us cause she was worried about us barking in the night and waking everyone up. Later when everyone woke up from their nap, mom, dad and Emilie went outside for a while and we went too. Emilie watched as dad played frisbee with us. She's still a little too small to through it for us, but she does like to watch us play. We went for a little walk around the area and hung out with them when they were outside. In the eveing, they were cooking on the grill and everyone was outside. Emilie walked around the yard with us and mom was afraid I would knock her down cause I sometimes don't look where I'm running. Lucky for me I didn't! Mom did take a few pix of me with Emilie so I'm sure she'll post them as soon as she gets a chance. After dinner Ali pumped up a air mattress. I thought maybe we would be sleeping in style, but it was for mom. I was soooo happy when mom came down and sleep with us. We all slept like rocks! Mom didn't need to worry about us waking anyone up cause we had no reason to bark since she was with us, plus I didn't worry about all the sounds cause I knew if anything bad was there mom would take care of us. It felt good to sleep all night!
Sunday mom, Echo and I left pretty early in the morning. I didn't know why dad didn't come with us, but I was glad mom didn't leave me behind. After what seemed like the longest ride ever, we finally arrived at this place where everyone was dressed in stuff like mom (bright orange with vests) and lots of dogs. Mom said this is where Echo trains for her search and rescue. Unfortunately for me I didn't do much except chill in the car while mom and Echo did their thing. It wasn't bad though cause mom had all the windows and sunroof open and there was a nice breeze. Mom did take me out from time to time to potty and get a drink. I actually got to watch Echo do a search and I must admit, it was pretty cool:) I guess my sis is a pretty cool kind of dog for doing this. Too bad I don't have a knack for it. When training was finished, we headed home. We still beat dad (he took the train home) and we were all tired, but mom said we needed baths. Well Echo actually was the one cause of the areas she was in for training, but mom didn't want me to feel left out so I got one too. After that, we crashed! Mom has a pix of Echo and I sleeping on the loveseat, you'll have to check it out.
All in all, we had a nice weekend. Something different for a change. Mom said we are allowed back at Alison's cause we behaved and as Emilie gets older, we'll get to play more with her when we're there.
On my agenda for this week is Country Meadows tonight. Other than that, I don't know if I have anything else going on. We are home this weekend and I think the weather is suppose to be nice so maybe lots of walks and a trip to the barn? I hope all my pals had a good weekend and if you're getting this nice weather, get out and enjoy it! If you're unfortunate to be caught in this big storm moving across the country, be careful!
P.S. Don't forget to check back in a few days for some new pix!
