On Wednesday, mom and I went to a pet first aid class together. Mom wanted to know what to do if Ben, Charlie or I got injured. She is most worried about my cat brother, Ben, who gets in to all kinds of trouble. We were the first ones to arrive so mom had her choice of seats. Mom put the loop of my leash around her chair leg so I could walk around a bit. I did get tangled up in my leash a few times, but mom came to the rescue. Other dogs came too, so that was nice. I got to meet them. Mom found my pulse and checked my gums. A few other ladies checked my pulse too. It was a bit embarassing as they were checking my femoral pulse. It is located on my inner thigh. Mom said it was nice and strong. I almost had to be a demo dog for bandaging, but a little poodle was eager to volunteer so they used her instead. That was fine by me. Mom and I had a nice time together. I got to meet some nice new people too. Mom says the more nice people I meet and the more positive experiences I have, the more comfortable I will be in all situations. I am making great progress. I am a lot less shy around people. I've always been great around other dogs!
