Food distractions are fun

It's me, Julio. Man are food distractions fun. I love it when I can try to grab crumbs off the floor. It's especially fun when I make mom plant her bad foot to keep from doing a nose dive. It's like squeaking a toy... Mom makes the weirdest noises...

Mom says she's really frustrated, and afraid of people thinking she's a bad handler. But I like her lots. My tummy just gets the best of me. And she has a harder time correcting me when she's using her support cane. TeeHee...

We went to Brewberry's today, and there were people who kept saying how cute it was that I wanted crumbs on the floor. I like it when they tell Mom she's wrong.

We're still a good team most of the time. I just get distracted by my labradorable stomach. Mom gets mad, but when we get home, she still plays with me lots. I wiggle and play with my bones. Then when she's trying to do her relaxation exercises, I jump on the bed and land on her stomach. Then I pin her and give her gobs of kisses.

Well, I better go. Mom will get mad if I slobber all over her laptop. I guess it was a lot of money, so I should be nice. Here are some tail wags.

Julio - you are one lucky dog. Our Mom feeds all the birds in the yard. It's not fair that we can't go outside and chase them. Our mom tells us that the hummingbirds are too fast for us anyway - we can see through the front door that they don't have enough meat on their bones. We get into trouble outside when we escape. We are skilled in tearing up the screens so we can jump out the window. If mom doesn't have to try and catch us - we love to prowl around. We get lots of treats if we come back home all by ourselves. A nice long nap is what we need when we've all had a wild adventure in the yard. Keep it real - you're a good companion, Julio, even if you do slobber... We have no problem with that but humans just can't understand. Meow from Rocky, Lukin, Nico, TigerMan and Little Missy

Oh boy! My mom gets so so mad at me! I love the trash! And I'd much rather sniff out the yummy cat boxes then come to her when she's at the door calling me. So what if I have to go pee, right? YOu keep getting those crumbs, and i'll keep getting the kitty stuff and the trash! We'll create a conspiracy!

food!
Hey Julio, its nice to see a message from you. You should create a journal on here like nine. Its ellieguidedog by the way. I love to try to get food. I'll even get food off counters. I've never tryed that in harness though. I get in enough trouble going for crumbs! The thing I do that makes mom madest is pulling away from her. i do it when I'm super excited like when I see that we have arrived at home after a long day. Today I saw that we were at a friends house and I pulled away and went down the bus steps. Mom took me in the house and made me do tons of obedience. i made up for it by having a perfefct route. later in the day. Someone's msning mommy. by

That is so cute. It's nice to know that even highly trained dogs can be food scavengers just like my little furry beggers.

meeow from vancouver
julio, i don't know if we've met. my name is rum, i live with isabella and her family. or, they live with me. they’re ok. usually they’re a little slow opening the door for me, and i’m really not happy that i can’t sleep with them. okay, so it takes me 30 minutes or so of kneading on someone’s chest before i find a comfortable spot, but you wouldn’t expect me to just flop down ANYWHERE? humans are ok, i guess, they’re just really not very quick on the uptake. and so clumsy! they can’t even lick their FEET, for heaven’s sake! but all in all they’re acceptable. considering their limited intelligence, i really gotta be grateful they’ve figured out that i don’t like to have my belly scratched but that i love it when they pet my tail.

and if this was them writing, they'd say something silly now like, "well, enough about me." but it's ALL about me, isn't it?

Have some labby advice from someone who's ol and sometimes not always so wise!
Hi Julio,

This is Holga. We haven't met but if we could/would, it would be so much fun accept for mom getting mad at me because i'm distracted by my canine friends. But, I just can't help it! I know I shouldn't be especially when I'm working but sometimes it's just too much! But I would caution you to stop eating so many crumbs. I used to do that too, and sometimes now and then I do my best to sneak something, but I've learned that sometimes I can get really sick, and that's not fun for me or mom.

Now, keep in mind that I'm a 7-year-old female, but I must say giving kisses is our job so keep that up, and keep being that 99.9% good guide dog boy you are ok?

*labby love*

Holga
