Hey guys, it's me Toby!

Last Tuesday around 6pm the weather alarm went off, we ignored the part about "Tornado warning/watch". Because we get them all the time and they never happen.
Well as soon as my trainer & her mother got home we had 5 minutes before it "came" and it all was over with in 5 minutes but boy did it have weeks worth of damage. The power was out for 24 hours.
Our house was okay, we mostly had trees everywhere, some of our other neighbors were less fortunate.

Sorry I haven't been posting in awhile, my trainer has been quite busy and wouldn't let me on the computer.
I will be doing another post about guide dog class last Saturday, and I have some guide dog classes this Friday and Saturday.

Toby visits the YMCA & a park!

Hey guys, it's me Toby!

This is my first time blogging so I really don't know much about it:)
Liberty was trying to talk me through it but all I really got from her was that she is mad that I took over the blog!

My trainer took me to the YMCA Friday morning. I was quite bored while we were in there, but at least they had a cold floor!
I was then taken over to play in the park. My trainer took me down a slide, over bridges, and even on a swing!

Enjoy the pictures (my trainer will do a separate post with the movies), and sorry there are no words on them this time, my trainer is in a hurry, and the blog posts them really oddly (the format she chose I guess!)

BTW, I heard that this Friday is scheduled to be my "getting shots at the vet day".

Toby wasn't feeling really good Wednesday night (well 3am Thursday morning), and he had diarrhea really bad...in his crate:)

We thought it might just pass, and it did, later that day he was fine again, till 10pm that night... in his crate.
Then every couple hours after that... in his crate:)

Which of course I had to wash out every time.
He wasn't acting different or not eating his food so we didn't know what was wrong.

We took him to the vet Sunday and he got a shot, and many different pills to help. This morning he was doing a lot better and so far no diarrhea!!

I hope to get some more pictures of him , and I will be posting them soon.

But for now enjoy the couple I have!
