Dinner and a Movie

Today I let Dad and Mom sleep in; I know Dad hasn’t been feeling well. I didn’t get them up until 7:00am. I didn’t let them sleep too late because I knew we had things to do. Dad likes to go out for breakfast on the weekend, so we went to my favorite place with the bacon and sausages. I haven’t had any yet but they smell wonderful. I did get to sit at my favorite table and  they left me some home-fries on the floor and I think it was cooked next to the bacon.  Shaping up to be an interesting day! After breakfast Mom had some chores and Dad and I had a Vet appointment for me. We took Mom’s car and I noticed that there were lights on that I never saw before. I asked Dad to fix it but he said we needed to go to my appointment first. So we made it to my appointment on time and dropped a coffee off to Mom doing here chores. Doc says I’m healthy, I weighed in at 108 pounds and the yeast infection in my ears is clearing up nicely. He wants me to keep using the drops they gave me to make sure it clears completely. The Doc also gave me flea and tick protection. I’m happy about that because fleas really bug me. No puppy wants those. I also took my heat worm cookies today. After the Vet we stopped to turn off the extra lights on Mom’s dashboard. The car Vet said that they forgot to make sure the car shoes had the right amount of air  in them. I don’t understand that. There is air all around us, how putting it in car shoes matters is funny. Mom will be safe and that’s all that really matters to me.

When Dad and I got home Mom was done with her chores. We decided that we should go to lunch and a movie. We had lunch at an outdoor mall and it was a nice day for a walk. I took them to a store that had all dog items; it was really great. Dad bought me a chew stick, that was nice but the best part was that I also got to meet some other dogs. One was an adopted dog named Chewy. He was definitely part bull dog and maybe boxer or pittie too. He was bridle like either of them and not as round and smooshy as a bull dog. Mom and Dad thought he was really cute. I barked at him because I was super excited to meet but we both calmed down and made friends. Then another dog came in and she was a really pretty blond. I thought about barking but she was so pretty that I kinda got nervous for a second. Dad reminded me to just be cool so I held back and it worked really well. As I walked Dad and Mom back to the truck we met two other smaller dogs. I tried the laid back approach again and it worked! I can’t promise I’ll remember this, but I will try. We had some extra time after our walk so we relaxed at home for awhile.

I don’t think I’ve ever been to the movies so I was excited to check it out. There were a lot of amazing smells and a bunch of human puppies and their parents. I made sure Dad made it to our seats safely. I laid down between Mom and Dad on a towel that Mom brought me and practiced my down-stay. It was a good choice in seats because there were two kids in front of us with really good smelling food. I was good, though. I didn’t try to take any, I just enjoyed the smells and being out.  After the movie I really felt that I needed to get Dad and Mom out quickly so I walked a little fast but Dad kept up.

After the movie, Mom had more chores at her old kennel space. I’m really happy we all live together now. Tomorrow I think we get to go back to the SDP farm to see Carlene, Earlene, Megan, Maria and all my family. I hope to see you there!

Moving the Furr-nature

Hi Friends –

It’s been an interesting few days since my last post. I’ve been going to Dad’s work as usual and I’m used to the day to day path there. For me it’s more naps than anything but I do get out several times a day. We make a point to walk around the indoors too. I think it’s good for both of us because when Dad sits too long he moves differently than when we walk and it makes me worried. (My new move for helping with that is to cross my shoulder in front of his hip and slow down, or stop. I think he’s catching on.) I like it because we get to see so many people and I get so many “handsome boy” comments and pets when we can allow it. There aren’t many times when someone touches me without asking, when they do, Dad barks pretty loud. I’m not sure who taught him that but it makes a Dane proud.

Yesterday, after the office we helped move a lot of boxes. After that I took a special trip with Mom and the girls; it helped make room in the truck for the second load so I didn’t mind really. We went to the building where the humans talk to the Great Spirit because Mom had to practice singing to the angels. I was so happy to see everyone there that after awhile I got lost in the spirit. I couldn’t help but run all around and try and play with everyone. Most people were ok with it, but after I leaped over the 4 stairs from the stage area and then ran up and down the aisle all super-dog fast, Mom got upset and made me down-stay. She was already a little mad because they all were lying on the floor practicing breathing (I don’t get it, breathing is easy) and I got worried and pawed her face. I guess it was a little hard because it left a mark. I left early though ’cause Dad was done with his chores and came to pick me up, along with the little human puppy.

Dad took the day off work, and I know he’s not feeling well, so I let him sleep in. He still got up early but not like an office day. I “did my business” then had breakfast while Dad fed the monsters. I really hope we can play soon. I just get so excited to see them because they are small, fast and furry. That gives me an idea for a new animal show, “The Fast & the Furriest”.  Maybe not.

Anyway, we went to move more weird shaped things that humans seem to need, they called it “furr-nature” I don’t know, there wasn’t a new couch for me, I’m not interested. Anyway, Dad’s pack of friends are really nice helping us all to live in the same kennel. I like knowing that my new pack gets to stay in one place instead of two now.

I need to keep an eye on Dad and make sure he gets some rest so I’m going to save more stories of my adventures for another time.
