Day at the Doctor’s…

Today I got to go with Mom on her appointments in the big town while Dott and Mama OC had to stay home. It was a long drive and I had to wear my Service Dog Pack once we got there, but at least I got to go.

When we got there, Mom pushed a button, a couple of doors slid apart, and we went into a little room. Mom pushed another button and the doors slid shut. Then, and you might not believe this, the room felt like it moved and when the doors slid open, we were in a different place! THAT was really weird!

We walked into a place called an office and I sat under Mom’s chair while we waited for the doctor. It was kind of interesting because there were a lot of different people that came and went. There were even a few kids there. A lot of them looked at me and smiled, but I stayed right where I was supposed to and was very quiet, but my nose, eyes and ears were going full speed!

We waited a long time and then went into another little room where I sat under another chair that Mom sat in. There were only a couple of people that came into that room. The lady liked me. She talked to Mom for awhile and then left and the Doctor came in. He filled out the papers Mom needed, then left for a few minutes. When he came back in, I did one little woof, and he was surprised because he hadn’t even known that I was in there. Mom told me to hush and I did, but he had surprised me when he came in suddenly.

I did everything exactly the way I was supposed to, and Mom said that she was really proud of me. This is the first time that I had gone to an office with her. I was able to pick up a few things for her, and she said I did my job just right.

After we went to her old boss’s office and dropped off the papers, we went to visit the strange lady that Dad calls HIS Auntie. She is VERY old and either Dad or Robert go each week to take her food and money, and to be sure that she is ok. Dad takes care of her bills for her. She is what Mom calls “ick send trick.” We had stopped at an Arby’s to get her some sandwiches, and Mom got one for Robert, her and me to share… Yummy!

When we were done with that visit, we started home, and stopped at a Jack in the Box to get a late lunch. They got me a WHOLE burger, plain, and a glass of water. I also got a bite of Mom’s taco meat. I think I LIKE going with Mom to do my job!

Mama OC was NOT happy when we got home. She yelled at Mom for a good 5 minutes, while Mom tried to talk to her and explain. She really wasn’t in the mood to listen very well. She wasn’t real happy to smell hamburger on my breath, either. Mom finally calmed her down with some chicken jerky, and taking us out to run while the horses ate.

Mom came in and made dinner for Dad and then she cooked up some special food for Dott since she is getting quite picky. It had hamburger, a few chicken livers, rice, broccoli and cheese in it, and Dott scarfed every bit that she was given! Robert said it looked so good that he would eat it except for the chicken livers.

Robert took a few pictures of “his baby’s belly” for you to see.

I don’t think Dott was real happy about that!

They are pretty sure, now, that she is going to be a mother in about a week and a half… Friday or Saturday after next is when they think that will happen.

Well, that was our day… Hope you had a nice day, too!

Dott is kind of a grouch lately, huh? Maybe she will feel better in about a week and a half.

You were such a good dog going to the office with your mom. I am sure she is proud of you.

What an exciting day and you were so good. I would have barked a lot more. You got some good yummies also. Please be patient with Dott right now, she is in a delicate condition and might be moody. If there are babies I can't wait to see them.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Good job being a service dog BG!! My mom has some pipedreams of doing that with me, don't see it happening myself! You must be a lot more grown up than me!! So cool that you got to ride in the lifty thing & go to the Dr with your mom!! Tell Dot to hang in there - no wonder she's crabby with all those babies squirming around & poofing up her belly!!
