Mom, Ruthie and I went for a long walk at the lake and swimming after the hard work out in the garden. Mom said I would be getting a bath the next day because we were having some visitors on Wednesday that I had to be looking and smelling nice for.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Ruthie on Wednesday !! She is 6 years old. Wednesday was another adventure for Mom and me too. A reporter from the Omaha World Herald came to our house along with a photographer to do a story about service puppies and their families. They arrived around noon and just hung out on the picnic table outside and talked. I wasn't paying much attention to them because Ruthie and I were busy playing in the garden.
After about an hour or so we all packed up and headed out to the Sarpy Community YMCA to visit some of their pre-school kids. The kids were soooooo nice and fed me lots of treats. I remember going there before for Family Days and visiting with their day camp kids. Mom said we would be coming back in June to do a presentation to the camp kids like we did last summer.
Our next stop was to Hy-Vee to pick up Ruthie's birthday cake. Mom said I was NOT on my best behavior. I keep telling her I don't like the gentle lead but she keeps putting it on me. Mom said she will win this battle but I am going to put up a fight !!! Mom tricks me by getting out the really good treats and I give in and go after them. I think Mom was embarrassed that I was misbehaving so badly but hey I am still a puppy and have puppy issues. I tell Mom to remember I have never had a poo in a public store so at least I am ahead of her other service puppies on that.
Thursday and Friday Mom packed in the morning then Ruthie, me and Mom went to the lake for a walk in the afternoon. No swimming though. Mom had stuff in the back of her car that she did not want to get wet. She said we will be moving soon and can swim all we want then. Mom made me wear my gentle lead around the house on Friday - the battle is still on !! Who will win ?
Yesterday, Ruthie and I got to spend some time outside with Dad scanning the farmstead. Only one more weekend left to do this. Mom packed most of the day while Dad went to the office. Both Mom and Dad packed last night but this time they had refreshments. Dad shared a little with me. I thought I had to be 21 but Dad said he would not tell. Ruthie has had refreshments before with Dad but she is over 21.
Happy Mother's Day to my two legged Mommy
