Graduation Day!

Graduation Day!
February 16, 2014 Stryder's Mom

I know, I’m a week behind, but at least I’m finally writing about it 🙂  Things have been so crazy busy with going to school (see tomorrows post on our first week at school) and with Dr appointments and more. I have never been so tired in my life. AND I still have some design work to catch up on. Who knew getting a service dog would take up so much time and energy???!?!!!?  But it is so worth it!!!!!!!!

On Friday, February 7th, Keebler and I went to the mall for our final test and he did so well. The joke was that security had to be called on him several times- anyone that has already met Keebler knows, he is so laid back, especially in public. He was also one of only a few dogs that didn’t make it to the Poop Club — Most of the other dogs went to the bathroom in the mall, either on the test day (which is an auto fail) or during the public access training. I was so nervous the entire time about it, but Keebler did great!

Keebler got a bath prior to graduation. He looks like a greyhound all wet LOL

The plane ride was so long and delayed. Keebler fit right under the seats and did fine. I was worried about him going to the bathroom, but he didn’t. We didn’t have a layover and just barely made one connection and then another LONG flight.

Once we got to Portland, we were told our flight to Redmond was cancelled and they couldn’t get us on to another one until Tuesday (this was Saturday when we arrived). Stryder was so sad but my husband and step-dad made the long trek over the mountain. It usually takes 3-4 hours but it took them close to 7.

The pass wasn’t too bad, not any worse than it is when we travel to Shriners. We stayed at a hotel and left the next morning. It did take many hours though.

Once we got home, Keebler played in the backyard with a ball and love the deep snow. It was so much fun to watch him bury his face and jump around all over.
