The End.

Did you know, since I came in 2008 I has helped mom raise and train about ....um.....9 service dogs/puppies in training? Pompei stayed the longest than all the others ones, so I think they should defiantly put my name down as a "co-raiser" of him. 
Me teachin him da fine arts of runnin at top speed
Me showin him da pool was not so scary...
He made fun of my scarf! What can I say!?
He wouldn't have even been as great if hadn't showed him the ropes. The house is super duper quiet now that he's not around, and I hates ta even say this butt...........


I think I might  miss him.


Me and Bubbles rode in the car with Mom and Pompei, on Saturday so we could go meet the people who was driving him up to New York. Mom was driving super fast, cause she got her times mixed up and didn't realize she had an hour more of traveling than the people meeting her, so she had the pedal to the metal. 


And she also made me ride on the car seat, which was completely not right, cause I can't even get as warm as I could sitting in her lap, but she was not even changing her mind, so I crowded on the seat with Bubbles. 

Let me tell you. That girl hogs up a whole locka space. And she didn't even move over so I could lay nicely. So I went back and slept in the back seat with Pompei. 


Then all of the sudden we was there, and mom was getting Pompei out of the car and walking him over to another lady in a van. I had ta scream for a little bit cause SHE FORGOT I WAS IN THE CAR!?! ...


....but she didn't even come back 'til the lady put Pompei in the car. Then she came and let me and Bubbles go potty, as the vans were leavin, we could see Pompei's head pop into the window, cause I think he was wonderin' why we wasn't comin with him....


That made mom all kinds of sad, so she then she thought I'd make a good cuddle toy.. 


NOT!


Then she did that crying thing, and had to use up the box of tissues the lady gave her. Sigh. Humans. 


After that she got herself some food, and didn't even share ANY with me. Not even a CRUMB. I thought that was highly unfair, and sat in the back of the car and barked at people while they walked by. 


Then FINALLY we drove away back to our home place. 


Anddd its been really borin around here. I tried ta get Bubbles to play wit me and she only plays for like 5 seconds and then she goes to lay down. confused


Mom says I got four weeks until I get another play mate....


I don't know if I can wait dat long....


Anyone wanta play?

Reading this definitely resulted in some tears. Erin, you are the queen of blogs. I've never seen prettier, more entertaining dog blogs. Stay tough. You know Pompei is doing great and having a blast up here in all this snow!

Aww, Texas! Take it a little easy on your mom. It's not easy sending a pup off to do the work he was born for! I'd be happy to play with you, come on up!

Isn't it strange that such a happy occasion can make us cry?

Awwww. Such a happy but sad occasion! Pompei had a great start to his training and now will go off and help someone else!
Texas, Im sure Pompei will miss you just as much as you'll miss him! And I'm sure he wouldn't have learned as much without your help!

We will most definitely miss little Pompeii even if he wasn't so little anymore. We know he will do great in his new life, but our doggy hugs go out to his two co-raiser who we're sure will miss him tons.
