Hey friends! I know I've been away forEVER. Some stuff that's kept me away:
1. Mom had to have her gall-bladder removed! She had surgery after waking up to a very painful attack. I had to be Anna, the GSD Nurse and take care of her. She's great now, but for the week before surgery and the week after I was very busy supervising dad in taking care of her. I even missed my CGC test because of it, but that's okay, I only have one mom.
2. After her surgery at the human vet, mom had a lot of work to do. Then Aunt Temple got married and mom had that too. Busy busy busy!
3. Mom had to replan our Sept-Oct vacay. We WERE going to go to the beach for a week, but mom said oil + puppies= bad thing. Boo on the oil! So instead we're going to NC and the Blueridge mountains.
I've never been to the mountains before, but mom and dad says I'll love it! We found an awesome cabin on it's own 22 acres in a place called Blowing Rock. There's lots of trails and stuff we can explore, and mom said North Carol-ine-a is supposed to be very doggie friendly.
To prepare for my trip, I asked mom if I could get a cool doggie backpack like Shawnee! She said that was a great idea so she ordered me one. I love my backpack. We've been walking with it and I'm finally carrying some shoes in it to get me used to carrying weight. Dad says I look like a pack mule. I tell dad to kiss my fuzzy butt!
