Busy Monday

As I've stated on my personal blog, life has moved into the left lane, and we are cruising along around 75 MPH!

Yesterday, started the trend......our church has a Vacation Bible School every summer, so we are starting to get stuff ready for that. So the first three hours of my day cutting rectangles. I was going stir crazy after a while, so as soon as I could, I left and went to check on my dogs.

Veda has really matured since I got him a month ago, and I felt comfortable leaving him and the dachshunds loose in the house. The proved themselves good...despite the tissues roll in the floor...untouched though!!

I put the dogs on their lines, to go potty, and all of the sudden, my porch was swarming with kids... :D So I took that time to teach them the basics of grooming a dog.

Now as I've mention, Texas has a tendency to be very territorial, but with a few corrections, he didn't growl/bark at any of the kids...even going as far as letting them walk him!

::Texas climbing on my sisters lap....he knows her, so which is why he's willing to climb in her lap::

After that, the kids wanted to walk the dogs....so....I said why not, and hooked them up and sent them out.

After that, I had to get ready for a training consultation, so they walked them back to the house.
Veda and I then loaded up, and went to pick up this guy.
Meet Eden...he's a 7 month old Goldendoodle, who is training as a Autism Service Dog.

It took Him and Veda a couple minutes to figure out the seating arrangement....but they looked quite comfy in the end.

We were evaluating some things with Mr.Eden that thankfully were'nt as bad as we were thinking. so it was a successful trip.

Looks like you have lots of helpers! Texas looked like he might be having fun, but didn't really want you to notice that. ;)

It's great that those kids had a chance to learn how to properly treat and groom a dog! Good job.

Whoo! Those kids could start a dog grooming business now that they've been taught by a pro!
