The Accidental Puppy Raiser

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 next to the Middle School "Time Out" Chair.


Here I am at the front of the school.

Glad to see you "next" to the timeout stump and not on it! : )
