Humble Jumble of Stuff...

Guess who got her homework done? That's right...I did!
Now what does that mean for you?
A way overdue update!

Let's see...I left off with the picnic and Betsy's first trip to school.
On August 12 we had a club puppy meeting. I forgot to bring my camera so I don't have any pictures of that. We didn't really find out anything too exciting at the meeting.
On August 14 we went to my grandma's house. My great grandma was there so Betsy got experience around a walker and oxygen tubes. We also practices come on the stairs and she is basically over her fear of stairs. YAY!
On August 15 my club had a car wash fundraiser. We made around $350. Which isn't bad considering it was raining. I had only planned to keep Betsy there for an hour max. But then hardly any of our club puppies showed up! So she ended up staying from 10 to almost 3. She was so sleepy when we got home!
I started school on the 18th so Betsy has been spending a lot more time in her kennel. She has been an excellent little girl in there.
Betsy went for her 4 month shots on the 18th. She weighed in at 28.5lbs. Big Girl! The vet said to just keep watching her eye. But more importantly her 4 month shots means she gets to go everywhere with me!
On the 19th Betsy went to her first soccer practice. She laid on the grass with my mom and watched me practice for 2 hours. She did excellent except I forgot to bring toys so she tried to ea the grass.
The 21st brought her first visit to Starbucks. My mom goes for a couple hours every Friday morning with her friends, so Betsy is going to become a regular attender. She slept the whole time.
On the 22nd we went on a bus ride with our puppy club. Betsy was the youngest puppy in attendance and she did excellent! She actually did better than some of the oldest pups in our club. She is such an angel.
After the bus ride Betsy went home with a puppysitter. She was gone for 3 days and got an excellent report! The puppysitter said she was the best puppy she has ever sat. And she is planning on getting a puppy in September and she said she is even more excited now that she has has a cute younger pup in the house.
When I picked up Betsy on Monday we had to stop by Walmart. I needed a couple of things for school. So we walked in and had to walk to the back of the store. I grabbed the notebooks I needed and when we were walking to check out Betsy laid down and refused to get up. So I had to embarrassingly carry her to the front of the store. Even though her vest was showing, I got a lot of glares from people. One lady even told me not so nicely that if Betsy was a real service dog she would be walking. I calmly explained that she was a puppy in training and that she was tired. Never again will I carry a dog through the store.
On the 28th Betsy was sitting outside Starbucks and she peed sitting down! She never even squated! I didn't know dogs could do that! But she had her vest on :/
On Saturday I watched Anthony. Well my parents did most of the watching. I had a soccer game and so my parents got the honor of watching two 4 month old puppies. They did great though and I won 7-0! I think I found my good luck charms.
And that brings us to today. Me and Betsy spent the day doing homework. School starts again tomorrow so I probably won't have any exciting news for awhile.

Now on to the part you really want...
They are in no particular order...

"Sorry mom I didn't mean to roll in the dirt and then jump in the pool."

First day of school. Sorry for the horrible quality. I don't know what was wrong with my camera.

"If there is a bunny in my food dish can I eat it?"

"I was just trying to help!"
