1st big trip!

I Just got back from TX today. Flying w/ SW was a breeze.They made it very easy for me and my whole human family by giving us authorization to pre-board per ACCA, which meant I'd be more comfortable. Amy didn't even need my record of health or her Dr. note. Given that this was my first flight I had to desensitize from the sights, sounds and smells of the airport, the routine of the security check and the aprehension of the take-off (and landing). I was a rock star; I didn't have any accidents, nor did I need my chew toy as a distraction. In fact, I was able to relax enough to take a nap going to and coming from our destination.
The trip itself was great! I got to see the rest of my human family and some points of interest like the river walk (where I took my first boat ride and had my first nerve-racking encounter w/ a revolving door-not one of my favorites), the capitol, the Alamo, a wildflower park (where I posed w/ a scorpion), Barton Springs and the bats of Round Rock. The people are so nice and I even got to take time off to play with Elway, a TX Blue Lacy whom I met on one of our last days; we had such fun...I love just being a dog sometimes!


Meeting My First Class Pet: My Friend Magnus

On 3/25/09 I met Magnus the rabbit. He's a class pet cared for by the students and teacher's of the Life Skills Program at the school where Amy works. This isn't the first time I've been exposed to a rabbit, in fact, if you go to you'll see that we're trained around them. Despite the fact that it had been awhile since I had been around one in an enclosed space, I fell hard for my new friend and found myself giving him kisses! :-) I really like being with him, but we're never left alone to play because I am still a dog and when I'm at school I have to be ready to work for Amy at any moment. It's nice to have a break once in awhile to spend some quality time with him though.
