Today my puppy raiser took me to the Indian Mound Middle School Forest and we had a great time. There were more sticks there than I could shake a stick at and it made it difficult to pick a good one. So, I walked, sniffed and ran as much as I could. My raiser told me that the kids in the school have a tree stump they call the time-out chair and if I didn't behave I would have to sit on it. I sat and was a good girl and I even posed for a picture next to the specific stump. I find that being outside for longer waks is helping me with my constant desire to chew stuff. Right now I am going to take a nap and then have some lunch. I hope you enjoy the pictures. They were taken with my master's cell phone so the quality is not so good. But, I was very good on our walk. After walking we went to the McFarland House Cafe. I met a little girl who liked to pretend she was bringing me water with a plastic cup. My raiser found out that the people who own the Cafe have a nine-week-old Golden Retreiver that I might get to meet some day. I also met two shetland sheepdogs named Barclay and Leon. They were friendly enough and we nosed around each other for a while. Early this morning I also got to sniff my next door neighbor. He is a large yellow lab named Luke. He is over 100 lbs. We meet with the fence between us. I wiggle all over and like big old Luke very much.
I am looking forward to Thursday when I can see some puppies my age again.
By the way, with my name being Abbey, I am planning on possibly putting together an advice column for the local paper. I think "Dear Abbey" might be a good title for it. What do you think?
Here I am at the front of the school.
