Still home getting ready. My human is trying to make up for lost time by running around like a chicken without her head, today.
I think her main ambition in life is to mortify me. It all started in Charleston. Some young guy threw a ball (that wasn't any good any more) WAY out in the lake. I thought it was for me, so I did what comes naturally!
I swam a long way to get the ball, and when I turned around, she was starting to take her shoes off--she was going to save me. Oh, no, I thought, I'm a Lab--humans don't save Labs from the water!!! All the other dogs are watching!!! Well, I told her off when I got back to shore!
I thought she had forgotten, but no such luck. The end result came, today. She decided that she needed a handle on me and I needed a life preserver. GAWD, what Lab wears a life preserver--bright green, no less. At first I objected, but she let me know there was no way out--just like cleaning my ears.
This may be the last time we talk before we leave on April 11. My human is excited, but she's nervous, too. Having lunch with some of her best buds on Saturday and dinner with her daughter on the weekend should help to calm her nerves. Then, off we'll go! She'll probably take some pictures the morning we leave. She doesn't want my sister to be there because she knows they'll cry. Geez...girls. My human told me some good news last night. We can go the scenic route the way we planned. Tennessee, here we come!
