Okay, I'm back. OmaKitty was updating her website all night and being a pain in my rear-end. I had so much to say earlier but NOooooo... I think Oma actually didn't update her site - she just sat on the computer to keep me off of it.
We had lots of excitement at the house this afternoon. Mom had an exacerbation which is an "episode" of her MS stuff. Before she even knew it, I was calling 911 and getting the emergency people to the house. Mom thanked me for calling them but wished I hadn't until she asked me to. I guess I jumped the gun a bit.
The emergency people came and there was a nice lady and a nice man that came in the house. They thought I was really cool because I have my very own phone AND I know how to use it. Plus, they were very impressed with my beautiful color and personality ... but who isn't??
They left after they checked out Mom. She's fine, she said it was just a small exacerbation. I think she was just about to forgive me for not waiting for her to tell me to get the phone and the doorbell rang. Oh yeah ... I called Mom's friend, Troy after 911. He came busting through the door and said I had called him, tattling on me. He checked Mom too and she told him she was fine and she gave me a mean look.
OmaKitty was happy that Troy came over though because she has known him ever since she came to live with Mom and she says he's the only man she really likes. Troy has a cat and his name is Go-Go and OmaKitty and Go-Go play together when Mom and I go out of town overnight.
Troy left after a while and Mom sat on the couch and gave me a mean look again. I knew I was in trouble because I hadn't waited like I was supposed to. Mom made me sit down on the floor and she put my phone in front of me after she messed with the buttons for a minute. Then she made me practice my phone dialing skills. I dialed 911 like a million times ... but they never came... I don't know why. Mom's cell phone DID start ringing like crazy though.
After that was all over with, we went to the coffee shop and I saw Happy Jack, my biggest fan. He's a nice homeless man that works at the coffee shop to make money. He thinks I am the complete and total shiz-nit!! I gave him kisses all over and Mom talked to him about my knee surgery his dog, Rico. I noticed Rico wasn't there. Mom and Happy Jack talked for a bit about him then Mom got teary eyed and gave Happy Jack a big hug. He was crying, so I licked his face really good. Later, Mom told me that Rico had died because he was old. That makes me really sad because Rico was my friend and Happy Jack loved him very much. Mom said we'd come home and find a picture we have of me and Rico so we could get it framed for Happy Jack.
Anyway, I digress. After we talked to Happy Jack, Mom went to the window and ordered her coffee. Sun was working and Mom has a crush on him so she had to stand there and talk to him FOREVER!! It was weird though; she didn't let me off my leash so I could visit everyone on the patio. I didn't understand. I did later.
After Mom finished schmoozing with Sun, we went to the fountain area. I was ready to run around and have fun but Mom kept my leash on me. It was there that I realized this wasn't a social visit for us - she was making me do my training!! All because I made ONE little mistake!! We did sit, down, stay, wait, come, heel ... the WHOLE time, there were people strolling by that I could have been talking to!! It was horrible. Mom says that I have to study to keep my mind sharp so I won't make mistakes again.
We came home and I climbed in bed. I think I'm safer in there. Later, Mom came over and laid down on the floor with me and told me how much she loves me and how handsome I am. I think she finally forgave me but I'm keeping a low profile, just in case.
