I have become quite the traveler now. I have been on eight plane flights now (counting transfers). Mom and I went to Vegas in July for an educational seminar. I checked out many casinos (we just walked through, mom doesn't gamble, except for $1 just to say she did it) and we went to the aquarium at Mandalay Bay. The fish were fascinating. I was especially interested in the rays and sharks. It was hot but we only walked around in the evenings.
My "sister" Heather went along. I really got to know her better. She knew her way around Vegas so we saw the best sites. No time for any shows though. I also rode on the monorail, the tramways and in a cab a couple times. We were stopped twice by security guards. One was okay after mom identified me, I was just wearing a scarf because of the heat. Another guard gave us a bit of a hard time and was a little rude. My sister actually did most of the talking. My mom gave the guard a SD card from SitStay when we were done.
The meeting rooms were small. I was so good the first day that mom just let me loose on the second day so I wouldn't tangle my leash. I pretty much just slept under the table. One time when I woke up I got up on the wrong side of the "table" and felt a little lost for a few seconds until mom called me. The ladies in the class and the instructors really liked me too.
On this trip I also learned to ride on moving sidewalks and stairs. I still don't like them but I don't argue about it anymore. I just grin and bare it and jump when it's time to get off. Almost pulled mom over a couple times in the beginning.
We went to Wisconsin to see my grandparents in August. I may tell you about that later. That trip wasn't much fun.
