When the natives get restless

Yesterday and today not much went on here, so our resident 8-month old puppy resorted to causing trouble about the house. So I decided today that Fantine needed a nice long walk. We went up to the shopping center (1.5 miles away) which happens to be where I work, and full of fun stores. I needed to look for graduation presents, anyway. Fantine was a trooper and handled the traffic well. The road we have to go on is one of the main roads through the city, and has no sidewalks, so there were lots of cars zooming past, and we were just on the shoulder of the road. I’ve taken many dogs on it before, and there are alternate paths that go on residential roads, but they take a lot longer. So we walked up the hill to the shopping center and visited Cold Stone, a party store, Safeway, Jamba Juice, and the drugstore. It was great. 😀 Fantine recieved many compliments on looks and behavior, and (Emily, you’ll be glad to hear) out of all the people who petted her, she only got excited once. (YAY!) I’m trying to get pictures up, but the uploader is being funny so I might have to add them later.

Tomorrow we’re skipping church ( 😦 ) and riding the bus to my summer camp choreographer’s meeting. We’ll get to walk through downtown Kirkland, and mayyyyyybe visit the waterfront. But probably not. Afterwards we’ll be riding the bus back to the park-and-ride and then going to Target to see if they have something I’m looking for, and then going home for a nappy (we’ll both probably snooze) and then off to our puppy club meeting!!! I’m so excited! I haven’t been to one since I had P-mo, even though I did get to go to the Fire Station Outing in April. And then we’ll go to Mars Hill Church that night. So we have a fuuuun day tomorrow! No more of this “bored” stuff.

 Oh! And the other  thing Fantine’s REALLY improved on (that I forgot to mention in the list earlier) is checking in. I really encourage dogs to check-in so that I know they’re focused on me. When she came to me, she hardly ever did it, but now she does it tons. That makes me happy. 😀
