My trainer is switching to the bigger room, so that means I have to stay down stairs so I won't get in their way while they paint. Since my trainer still can't do much, she is trying to keep me busy. I went upstairs for a "little" peak at the room I have been living in for over 15 months. And you know what! It is completely different than it was a couple days ago!!
I still have to wait to see what the new room is going to look like, (who knows they might not get it finished before I go back!). If you look at the photo under my name you can see what I have been doing all these boring hours!!
I think I am on my 10th toy
(see all the stuffing? My trainer just picked
up some a minute ago!)

I got most of what I asked for, (but the 1 thing I really wanted I still didn't get, for me to stay a couple more months)
I got lots of stuffed toys. (most of them are torn up now)
my stocking was full with lots of cool toys,
a couple bags of yummy little treats,
and 2 big edible bones!!!!
Hope you had a Merry Christmas, and have a Happy New Year!!!

I did go with her to the Doctor, and she did get it off, it was my first time to hear and see a cast taker-offer (saw), (another exposure on the list).
She now has her hot pink cast off and is wearing a special soft cast/walking boot. It will still be three more weeks before the bone is completely healed and she can walk on it.
That is going to be right before I go back to school, I wonder if she will be able to walk me into the school one last time.
We have not gotten any more info on the new dog (if she is getting it).

I have looked under the tree and I have 4-5 presents under there.
But you know whats funny, my trainer's sister has a cat (don't you remember Socks?)
He was bored playing with me so he decided to have a little Christmas! He tore open one of MY gifts and was trying to eat the treats that my trainer put in. (well I didn't get a real good look at what was in there) My trainer got her sister to wrap back up the gift before I saw it under there and got a hold of it.
My trainer is going in to the docter today and might get her cast off! I will do another post on it when we get home (that is, if she lets ME come!)

saw my trainer (and there's Rieko, her
Japanese exchange student)
I am remembering all the good times I had with my trainer. It makes me sad to think I will be leaving in a month. It would be cool to be a guide dog, but... I am going to miss my trainer!!!
Take I look at the photos and see all the good times I had.
Me at Pizza Hut
admiring the buffet
Me at a 4-H fashion show
testing out the runway
Me playing...yeah you're right
Doctor (okay vet)!! Notice the sling in the first photo, and in the next one
I've got a sprained tail too.
Guess I was wagging too much.
I am growing up!
I didn't mean this much!
Me at puppy class
Me at my first wedding
Me at the beach in FL for the
guide dog walk-a-thon
Hope you like them!

Dear Santa (& trainer)
I have been the best dog this year, I do my obedience when my trainer tells me to. I don't have accidents inside (well... most of the time!), I don't beg, (but if she trained me to I would!), I don't get on furniture, and everything else I forgot to say!
Now I will get to the good part.
- A stocking full of stuffed animals with squeakers in them, (and a couple lose treats so I can eat them right away!)
- My trainer to invite the WHOLE guide dog group out ON Christmas!
- The guide dog school to get too many dogs back in Jan and decide to leave me with my trainer for a couple more months.
- My trainer's family dog to suddenly not be able to bark!!!
- If I still end up going back that I will be able to make it through the vet check up, and the training.
- My trainer's sister to let me have her cat to take back to school with me!
- Neat toys and treats for Christmas (if you want the list hear you go!)
A bag of treats I have never had before
A huge edible bone
Some really really neat SQUEAKER toys
New rope toys
Another bone that comes with P.B in it when she buys it
Christmas dog cookies
A PETSMART GIFT CARD!!!
(AKA the best dog ever!)
Did you like it? Did you ever get what you want from Santa and trainer?

trainers to arrive
Princess, my sister, wearing
Maggie 2 wearing a Santa suit
And finely after the people were done eating, we got to eat!! The cup cakes (petit fours) are in the middle with 2 Christmas tree shaped cakes on the outside!
Hoped you enjoyed the photos!
After we did some obedience, we all sat down and Suzette (the trainer's trainer) was giving out prizes to people. My trainer won a trophy for doing presentations and other things to get the word out about... you guessed it, Guide Dogs! And I won a green stuffed animal to.
They had dog cake, and cup cakes (make sure you look at the photos of it!)
I am still sad about knowing when I will be going back, but I am soo glad I got to go to a puppy meeting before I leave, (since I don't know there will be another one before Jan 21).
I didn't get any photos (well I am a dog!) but my trainers friend got some, so don't forget to check the Christmas party photos!!!

I had the time of my life, My trainer got a couple photos so don't forget to look at them!
Me playing with a toy, (that I don't have)
We still are trying to figure out if she is picking up the new puppy when I am dropped off, (and if it is going to be a Goldadore like me!)
I will keep you updated about the new puppy, I hope I get to meet him/her (so stay in touch)
