I had a very fun weekend:) We didn't do anything Friday evening, but Saturday was a different story.
Mom had barn duty and as promised, she took us dogs with her. I was SOOO happy to be there! I ran around like a nut. Echo and I played chase and we helped mom take the horses out. Yes, I helped too cause I held the lead line for Sophie and Tequilla. Mom did her barn duty while we played. The horse dentist came to do the horses teeth and mom said she was proud of me cause I didn't bark at him at all. We stayed at the barn for hours, longer that I think I've ever been there. After we left the barn, we stopped at a place mom could get the horses some treats then we headed home and just relaxed. I was okay with that cause I was tired from all the playing I did in the morning. Later in the evening we went back to the barn. Dad went along this time, but it wasn't quite as much fun. It started out great cause mom took us on a trail ride with her and Tequilla. That was a lot of fun and Tequilla seemed to have a good time too. But that was when all the fun ended. Mom was riding Sophie in the arena to show dad the problem Sophie is having with her back end. We were in the arena playing and mom told us to stay away from the horse. Of course we wouldn't listen so dad held us. That didn't go over too well, especially when Echo slipped out of her collar. Boy was dad mad!!!! That made mom upset cause she doesn't like when dad yells at us (even if we do deserve it) so she put us in a down/stay and we actually stayed. Echo did get up once, but she did lay back down when mom told her to. After that, we gave dad a VERY wide berth cause we knew we made him mad.
Sunday morning was fun time for me. Mom took just ME to the barn. Nope, no Echo this time. She said it was only fair cause Echo would be with her in the afternoon at search training. I had a lot of fun with mom, even though all we did was take horses out and do some stall cleaning. Mom let me help take the horses out again. I really enjoy that and it's been a long time since I did it. Mom said she honestly forgot about it, but she promised that from now on, she'll always let me help bring in or take out the horses:)
The rest of my Sunday was boring. Mom, Dad and Echo all went to search training mid-afternoon and didn't get home until like 8pm. Mom was so tired that we didn't do anything and actually went to bed early. I hopped up on the bed with mom and we were both out in no time.
I have no idea what we are doing this week. I know mom is visiting Manor Care, but it's Echo's turn so I won't be going there unless Grandma happens to go. Mom also said we're suppose to have a couple days of rain so I'm not even sure if we'll get to play outside or go for walks much this week. But if I do anything exciting, I'll be sure to tell you all about it. Bark at you later!
