Sad face (NOT!)

Well, guess you can tell this isn't me in the picture ..maybe I should have put a sad face of my mom on this post instead!
You see, Mom made me take the Good Canine Citizen test on Thursday and I did SO good with all my commands!!   Mom said she was so proud of me! BUT....I'm not good when my mom goes out of the room.  It's called 'supervised separation!  I don't want to be separated from my mom!
Someone has to hold my lease for 3 minutes while mom walks out of the room or building!  3 minutes!  Do you know how long that is in dog minutes!  A very, very long time!  At least for me it I didn't have to pass all of the"criteria" (that's a big word I kept hearing mom and the 'tester' talk about!) and supervised separation was the last test we had to do.
 If I'm at home, I don't care that mom leaves me.  I usually just go in my crate (mom lets me loose when they leave now - she said it's because I'm so good!).  So, now mom is trying to get me used to her walking out of a building without me when we go other places.
 HA...does she really think this will work!  Must be...she keeps leaving me with other humans and walks out of my sight.  I am getting better but I'm still whining...Mom said I'll get used to it because she wants me to be a therapy dog (like Mandy).  I think it would be fun and nice to have a job of visiting people in the hospital(s) guess I'll keep trying to get used to my mom leaving me...just wish it wasn't as long as 3 minutes!  So does mom!

Happy BD to me!

It's my BD!!!  It's my BD!!!  I'm two years old today!!!  Dad says he can't remember me being this small.
This was me the 1st day I came to live with mom and dad.  I could curl up in dad's arm easily.

Now I have to lay on the arm rest!  Mom says I'm not fat I'm just "big boned".  I love my mom and day!  And I'm so glad they took me home!  I wonder if I'll get more treats today because it's my BD!!!!  I hope!!!
