Happy Halloween

Charlie isnt thrilled with his new Christmas outfit. We all think it looks better than his Santa outfit.








Mommy and Mama Brandy had date night tonight. They took me to see Beverly Hills Chihuahua :) It was good! Mom caught me intently watching the end! lol. Everyone at the theater loved my Superman costume, even thought I didnt wear the cape. Mama B took me out for a break and put her kitty ears on me before we went back in to get a laugh out of Mommy :) We were going to see the Haunting of Molly Hartley but Mom wasnt sure if I would like the screaming or not. All in all we were glad we picked Chloe :)




One of mommys professors had a friend pass away this morning, and my costume really cheered him up. I almost peed on my cape durring break. Ooops!


After we came home Mama B took down the Halloween decorations, but left up the stuff that will pass for Thanksgiving, like the pretty ceramic pumpkins, the scarecrows and stuff like that. She left up the lights too because she is going to wrap them into Christmas lights next month. She also left up "Aunt Hilda" the crashed witch, because we dont have anywhere to put her yet...


We went to Target between dinner and the movie. While Mommy had to go do something else Mama Brandy and I went to the pet department. She got Charlie a stocking of toys for Christmas and a cute elf costume lol. He looks silly in it! She got me a big stocking full of Christmas toys, but I pretended to not notice :) I will act suprised. :) Her and Mommy had to throw out my BIG bobo because he had some holes in him, and a couple of other little things. That is okay. I have lots of toys. They were talking about sharing some with Lucky, Uncle Allen's dog, because he doesnt have much of his own. I have a FULL basket of toys, and some new stuff on the way :) I dont mind sharing :) I know I wouldnt like not having toys of my own. We are comming into the season for sharing :)

New Pictures

Mama Brandy wanted some fall pictures of me for my blog. She wanted some of me in the leafs, but it is too windy today!

This is me on the rocks out front :)

Under the tree






Outside the front door

Love the shovel in the background. I would thing that with photographer training she would know better than that!




















In the car! We went to Walmart. Again....








Me in my uniform!


Training

Mama Brandy Groomed Me! She cleaned out my ears, gave me a good brush down and put on my Halloween Shirt. Then she got me up to take some pix :)


TUMMY TIME WITH MOMMY!!!!!!!

I am such a happy boy. I may be a service dog, but I am just like any other dog too! I get plenty of free time and play time!













My oh my, I am up with Mama Brandy early today! I have already had breakfast and everything.


Mama and Mama B want to start really working on refining my training. I have been known to cheat on Mama, and walk away from her while we are at home. That just is not acceptable so we are all going to work on that.

I just got certified in June, and I bet 18 months goes by quickly.


Mama B said "use it or loose it". Whatever that means lol.


I am still VERY GOOD at the door commands, and take it.

We want to work on hold, Go Get Help (I am very keen, so I know when she really needs me to go get help or when we are practicing), and me not walking away.

They both say I am a very good boy, and we all just need to work on those things.

Mama B noticed I did VERY WELL when Mama told me to stay while she was unloading the car after our WalMart (OH NO WALMART AGAIN!) trip Saturday, I think I should have helped though.

Mama B has also noticed that when she says "wait" when she feeds me I am doing very good! So many good things, and just a couple of things to work on.

Charlie got rid of his bloggy.


Mama B is trying to figure out which of my videos are which, there are some scrapped ones that accidently got on the computer and she cant figure out which is which! Forgive us if the wrong one comes up! These are videos of me doing good things! Later on Mama B might post the "out takes" lol once when I was doing door close, I closed the door, but I got left on the outside!


I really like squeekies!


Door Commands
Door Open!


Door Close

Other Tasks

Phone, Take It

Retriving 3 Items

I am such a good boy :) I am tuckered out, in bed. Mama B gets to write this while I go back to sleep. Gotta be fresh to help Mommy!

KAthy & Nelson

This, Is NELSON:


Kathy, Nelsons Mommy, posted this and I thought it was so funny I thought I would share. The picture on here, is Nelson at Wheelchair Daze!!




The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.


The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.


I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible.I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.


For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years -- canine or feline attendance is not required.


The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!


To pacify you, my dear I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets


1.They live here. You don't.


2.If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it 'fur'niture.)


3.I like my pets a lot better than I like most people. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly


.Yours truly,Your Pet Parents


Obsesed



Mama Brandy, is obsessed with my teeth!

Resurection Mommy

Mama Sara gave me a stuffy at Wheelchair Daze. Well, I chewed the nose off so it had to be thrown away. I was sad. But then Mama Brandy won a prize in her groups social work class and brought it home for me. It was THE EXACT SAME STUFFY! WEEEEEE~!!
