My Mom took my sister and I to a little grassy spot by the beach this morning 🌾🌾 There were big bushes with sticky leaves and we had the best time!! Not a lot of opportunities to enjoy nature where we live, especially with dogs involved, but we made the best of our little excursion 🌿🌱 We worked on harness conditioning tonight—also I’m officially 6 months old! 😁✨

Here’s a little #throwbackthursday from the night Mom picked me up! I was very tiny and she was so happy to hold me 💚 In other news, Mom started PT today. I stayed home, although she did say it “kicked her ass”, whatever that means 🤔 I heard she was in a pool though and water is fun so how bad could it have been?

Obligatory #TargetDog pic with my new best friend! He didn’t say much but we exchanged numbers 😎 Also!! Ya boi got a tail upgrade ✨✨ Now I’m truly living my cotton candy aesthetic—and continuing to confuse people with my gender 🍬

“Everyone wait!” Don’t worry, Mom moved the bowls farther apart after she took the picture 😉 I went to Walmart this morning for the first time in awhile and did great! Tonight I successfully gave Mom three clear alerts to rising heart rate, the last one was followed by an icky sleepy spell. It’s cause she was cleaning the room up. She said I was a good boy and gave me big pets 💜

Mom gave me a kiss! We went with her family to Epcot tonight, I rocked it 😉 We practiced all sorts of stuff, and we had a bit of a crisis at the end but I handled everything so well so Mom could focus on what was happening. We also met @my.little.shadow and I think we’re related!! Haha just kidding, but they were so awesome and Yuki and I loved each other 💖

We actually did stuff today!! I was so good, I got this stuffed lion 🦁 We went to the grocery store and as we walked in an employee tried a couple of times to get my attention before Mom gave him a look 😶 “don’t do that, he’s working—thanks” Ooooo he was very offended. (Don’t try to pet/call to dogs that you don’t know without asking the owner: a concept) We did lots of drills working on stuff, Mom was so so proud of me! We even went to dinner with her family to practice my table manners, big big day ✨✨

We went to go visit my big sister, Felicity today!! I hung around with the horses and a cow and it was awesome—farm life is defiantly for me (as long as Mom lets me eat the horse poop 🐴💩)

“People with real disabilities deserve handicap spots, not you!” Someone decided after watching us leave my car that I did not look disabled—they left this note on the passenger side window for me to return to. Not all disabilities are visible. Ableism exists and this goes to show that you can be both disabled, and ableist. I don’t have a placard because I thought it would be a fun addition to my mirror, it’s because I need it. I don’t want to be using it. I can’t think of a non-Munchie that wants their body to need the help that a placard provides. Your disability is not more “special” than mine. Don’t be an asshole, you have no idea what a random person is going through. Not every disabled person looks the same, and that does not change the validity of their disability.

I live the ruffest life, but someone has to 🙄 I don’t get a comfy place to sleep, so I am banished to the cold tile... That’s not true, I’m just overly dramatic. Mom says that’s apart of my charm ✨

I was such a good boy tonight at our town’s fest. Big noises and lots of people didn’t phase me at all! A dog came up and sniffed me while I was in this position but I didn’t budge. It happened again a few minutes later and the guy said “oh it’s okay, she’s a service dog too”...sigh 🙄 Mom had to tell him I was working and redirected me. I had lots of fun though, Mom was so proud of me 💙

Happy Halloweeeeeen!!! 🎃 I had my first normal outing in awhile today, and I did such a good job. We went to the grocery store, Mom AND Dad said I was a good boy! We heard a dog fight while we were there, but luckily we were on the other side of the store and I didn’t really care. Sighhhhh...anyway!!!

Today I made Mom very proud. Firstly, I gave her another clear alert to a sleepy/weak spell a few minutes before it hit. Besides that, what was so great is that our town held a Halloween fest 🎃 tonight, and Mom was really hesitant about taking me. She decided to do it, we biked (!!!) over, and I absolutely blew her away! I really enjoyed myself, nothing spooked me, she had lots of people pet me (especially those with weird costumes). There was loud music, kids running around, but I totally kept my cool 😎 Mom let me watch everything and gave me several breaks. I met some fire men, and was not bothered by a smaller dog that lunged and barked at me. I redirected really easily 👍 At the end, Mom sat down for me to practice DPT and a kid ran right by us, but I kept my “down”! Oh also, a really loud skateboard went by us today, I watched it calmly but continued to do stuff cause I was busy 😁

Successful day! Mom started teaching my sister about bike riding! 🚲 Sadly, I was not the one riding the bike. It went really well, and I had lots of fun. During the process, lots of loud sounds from the street were going off but I didn’t even mind 😁 Earlier, Mom was sitting at her computer and I came up to her and started licking obsessively. But her heart rate was fine, she was wondering where the alert was coming from. Moments later, she got hit with one of her very tired and weak spells. She was so proud of me, now we have to work on shaping the alert 👍

Lots of puppy pushups and retrieval practice for me tonight ☺️ I’ve started learning “back” to make walking a little easier when I’m not quite in position. It was a chill day, I gave Mom snuggles as a consolation prize for her not feeling super 👍

Today was a day of practicing “stay”s ✋️ and puppy pushups 💪 It was fun, I even began learning how to backup better! We went to the vet this morning so Dahlia could get her last set of shots, and I looooved the vet tech—we also went to work with Mom but we just slept there 😴 I’m also 5 months old today!!

Went to Walmart today! I was doing a really really good job, lots of retrievals and directional cues ☺️ Unfortunately I did have an “oops” moment when I barked at a moving wheelchair 😞 I recovered really quickly and the people were very nice, Mom had them pet me and she gave me treats the whole time so I would have more of a positive association 👍 Someone wheeled a tall cart full of chicken 🍗 by me after that but I handled it really well!

Big day, I went to the mall with Mom so we could go to the Halloween store 🎃 The big interactive display spooked me, but we worked through it and I walked super calmly with Mom over the rickety bridge. We also went to a bookstore for a few minutes—Mom says I have to learn to love them because she loves going to bookstores 💖 Later on, after we left work (I was not working 😉) I barked at some people skateboarding and Mom had to very very firmly work with me so that I could get calm. Once I lay down and she told me I was safe, I felt a lot more relaxed and we walked up closer and watched the skateboarders 👍 I got so many treats and the skateboards at one point got kinda close but I kept my cool 😎
