So, windows are going in the house right now...seems to be going okay so far, even though mom hasn't come home for lunch to conduct an inspektion. But I'm supervising, which means no glass has been broke! Yay!!
It's been a busy week. On Monday night we went to Petsmart to practice my "awareness issues". I did noticeably better, and I'm walking prettier next to mom. We even met a husky who's mom was talking to my mom about issues she was having, such as pulling. Mom said to try the reverse method--everytime I pull my stops and and we turn around. It's working for me, but the lady seemed doubtful. Mom said to give it a try!
On a sidenote, the Petsmart people know me now, asking "How's Mrs. Anna doing tonight?" I have a new fanclub! Maybe I was wrong to judge Petsmart?
Last night we took practice to the street again, I walked pretty out the driveway into the road and we practiced sits and "watch me"'s and I done good! Tonight will be an off night since mom has church....then tomorrow is....gulp...class!
We'll get there early again so I can walk and sniff around, hopefully I'll be a little more alert to mom and not everything around me! I really hope that little mixed dog stays away from my booty and my treats. Mom said she'll try not to get put into a group with them.
Then, the real scary thing, I'm going to Dr. Vet Friday morning for X-rays! Before Christmas there were some concerns about my elbow and Dr. Vet wanted to look inside me. This involves me not eating after 10 p.m. tomorrow night and for mom to get up EARLY to take me to Dr. Vet to be dropped off and knocked out. Mom is also going to have Dr. Vet look at my hips to see if there are any signs of issues I may have later on, such as hip displaysia. I'm already on joint supplements just to keep me healthy, so I hope I pass this test.
Mom is a little worried, but I think it's just mom's don't like having to drop their kids off and then not knowing what's going on. At least it's on a Friday, so when I get home all wonky from being sedated mom gets to stay with me the next day.
Mom said she'd update the blog for me if I'm too wonky to let my puppy and kitty friends know what's going on.
Whew! What a busy busy week! I'll let you know how class goes tomorrow night!
