The next day after taking my pink pill Mom and I were off to the Downtown YMCA for their Senior Christmas Party. Mom use to work there so they invite her back every year. Ruthie use to go there all the time with Mom so everyone was asking about her. Ruthie was a little upset that she didn't get to go but understood this was a teaching moment for me. It really ended up as a teaching moment when I took it upon myself to help myself to one of the Senior's dinners up on the table. I heard Mom shriek from accross the room so I knew right away it was just dinner for the Seniors and not puppies too. My pink pill worked with no deposits made that day but just barely.
Mom and I went to Shadow Lake Mall and did some Christmas shopping. Thank goodness this Mall is close to us and I did OK with my car sickness however we went to an indoor Mall about 45 minutes from our house the next day and I made a deposit on the way there and back. Mom changed up my pink bill with an orange one thinking that would help but it didn't. I did get extra for dinner since Mom said most of my breakfast was in the back of the Ford.
There were soooooooo many people at the Mall. People stopped and talked to Mom and asked to pet me about every 10 steps we took. Mom wasn't on a power shopping trip just there to pick up three books about a service dog named Tuesday so we enjoyed the time. There were some young girls who really were excited to pet me so Mom stopped and while they were petting me she took our picture. I told them I would include them in my blog this week and gave them my blog address.
Winter here is kind of taking a break so on Saturday Dad took Ruthie and I out to help with the chores. We helped Dad find the poo so he could poo flip. I found some deer poo for a mid-morning snack. We fed the livestock by filling the bird feeders. There are four of them around the house. We walked around the farmstead scanning then Dad played ball with us. Today Mom said she might take us to the lake for a walk while Dad goes to see Grandma at the care center. No swimming though. Mom said the lake is covered with ice. I will have to see what this is ?
Seasons Greetings from Ruthie and I
