Mom worked out on the farmstead cleaning out the rest of the flower beds around the house along with the garden. Ruthie and I got to play outside while she did this. Mom didn't use the big green machine to take the weeds out to the tree line but a yellow wheel barrel. It tipped over once on the way out and Mom had a few words to say that I can not repeat here !
The new Groomer came this week. We didn't have to get in the car and drive there like before. They come right to the house. Ruthie went first and I watched from the front door then it was my turn. The Groomer said Ruthie was an angel but I was acting a little childish but hey I am only 9 months old. This Groomer trimmed my hair for the first time so I was a little frightened. We both smelled nice and after we were done at the beauty shop No swimming at the lake when we went for a walk. Mom wants us to smell nice for Easter plus she says Ruthie and I have a BIG presentation we are doing next week on Guide/Service dogs so it will be awhile before we get to go swimming again.
Friday Mom cleaned house. She made Ruthie and I stay in the mud room instead of the deck when she mopped the wood floors. Last week when Ruthie and I were out there I decided to use the deck railing as a chew toy. Mom and Dad were not happy campers !!! Mom said when she was done cleaning she would take us out for a walk but instead Dad and Mom went out for dinner.
Just one more thing to tell you about this week. We kind of had a medical emergency this morning. Dad was petting me and found a BIG fat bug on the back of my neck. He called it a tick. Mom got some special medical equipment and Dad removed it and flushed it away. Mom said she will get some meds and put on Ruthie and I so this doens't happen again. Dr. Dad !
