My Monthly Diary for September, 2012

Well, this wasn't the most exciting of months.  Mommy and I took a bunch of hikes for the county hiking challenge. If you haven't done so already, you can read about them here, here, here and here.  I had more laser treatments and they have done me a lot of good.  I can now get up on the couch, although I don't do it as much as I used to, and I'm taking Mommy for longer morning walks.  We did a 6 1/2 mile morning walk this month and a few 5 mile walks too.  My treatments are farther apart now.  I'm going every other week and the vet thinks maybe I can cut down to once a month after my next treatment.  Mommy was happy to hear that since they are running up a bit of a bill.

The biggest part of the month was that Mommy and I went up to the house in Wisconsin to help Grandma and Grandpa get things ready for winter.  Mommy's youngest brother came too which was good. Grandma and Grandpa got a new boat!  It is a pontoon boat so the good news is that it is much easier for me to get on and off of, but the bad news is I'm not allowed on the seats, but as you can see from the photos below, I can still see what's happening if I stand up.


 Mommy liked this picture I took of the boat's anchor

Since it is fall the colors were very nice.  Mommy and I both took some pictures of the color.

Mommy, Grandma, Grandpa and Mommy's youngest brother all went to see Beef-A-Rama.  I've gone in the past, but Mommy thought it might be too much for me with the crowds.  She was nervous someone might step on my foot or accidentally knock me over, so I stayed home this year.  This meant that Mommy got to take the shuttle bus in instead of walking in on the bike trail, which was new for her.  I let her use my blog to write a guest post about the event if you want to read it.  That night Mommy's niece and nephew-in-law came for dinner.  They are the reason we went to Minnesota this summer for a wedding.  Mommy's brother, niece and nephew-in-law all played slow motion chase with me, which was a lot of fun. 

I really like the nephew-in-law. I actually handed him Mommy's shoe when he arrived.  Everyone was shocked because I don't give things to ANYBODY.  Then when he knelt on the floor to talk to me I walked around behind him, sat on his leg and did my singularity impersonation, in which I become infinitely dense in both matter and mind, so that he couldn't get up.  Mommy took a picture of him trying to get his leg out from under me.  I think it is a fun game to play with unsuspecting humans.

So, even though it wasn't the most eventful  of Septembers, it was a fun one.

Love riding on boats! Mum and I used to go canoeing before Gracie joined the family, I miss it! Great scenery!
