Mom says we are going to be going to somewhere called Florida

Mom told me this week that we are going to some place called the Mayo Clinic in Florida to see if they can figure out why she is sick. I get to go with Mom and Grandmom! Goo
d thing too, I don't know what Mom would do without me in a new place. She also said we were going to stop at her Grandmom Vogel's house in South Carolina. Vogel might even come with us to Florida.
This week I went to a lot of places with Mom. I always go to therapy with her and they say I am doing really well! Lots of people tell me what a good dog
I am.
I also got to go to Raleigh, where I am from, for Mom's pain doctor. She was very nice and everyone there said I was a Very Good Dog. After that, Gran
d had to pick something up at a building and Mom and I stayed outside. She took some pictures of me that she says are very pretty.

After that, we went to one of Mom's favorite places to eat: Moe's. Mom is a vegetarian and she says they do the best tofu burrito anywhere! I don't know about that since she never gives me any (Mom says I have a sensitive tummy on top of my allergies). She does always make sure to get me a big cup of water with ice in it! I sit under the table and nap while everyone eats.

I also went to the dentist with my mom. We were sitting in this place humans call a waiting room (what kind of silly thing is that? a whole room to teach them to wait?!?) a man was asking questions about me. Then 3 of my favorite kind of human (besides Mom), kids, came in there! They wanted to pet me but Mom told them I couldn't play because I was working. They were very nice and Mom got to tell everyone that I was a rescue dog. The man was very surprised and Mom told him that you can get wonderful, smart dogs from shelters and rescues. Mom says she can't ever pay me back for what I do so she wants to pay it forward to other rescue dogs.
I also got to go out to dinner with Mom, Grandmom, Granddad, Aunt Kay and Laura! Aunt Kay was very proud of all of my progress since she hasn't seen me in a few weeks.

    You sure sound awfully great to know, Dixie! Your Mummy must be absolutely thrilled and proud of you - I know that my Mummy is! It must also be nice to be able to go everywhere with your Mummy.

    I got to go into work with my Mummy again today and it has been quite a while since I was last in. My Nan from South Africa is also here today (she is visiting Mummy for three months).

    Mummy and I pray and hope that your Mummy finds a good doctor to help heal her. You just keep doing what you are doing because you are very special. Mummy greatly admires all working canines.

    Take care and God Bless

  2. Hi Dixie,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I think it is totally pawesome that you help you mom the way you do. It must be pretty neat getting to go to all those places with her, even if you are working.

    Wags & wiggles,

  3. Hi Dixie,

    Thanks for coming over to visit me - I love making new friends! And I'm SO impressed with everything you do for your human - you are wonderful! I'm sorry to hear that your human isn't feeling well - I hope this Mayo Clinic place will find out what's bothering her.
