I did destruction last week with toilet paper. Mom said I need more exercise she is right but she will only run with me one time every day she said she is old and cannot run 20 miles like me. I am strong. Thursday Mom and Dad took me to play with a lot of dogs all at once I was sort of scared. We got in Dad’s truck we drove to Dog House Doggie Daycare. There was a man named Kevin he was nice he thought I was a Border Collie everyone does. I don’t know why. I am an English Shepherd I am big. People always ask “Is he a BC?” At first Mom did not know what they were talking about we did not know BC means Border Collie.
When we went in to Dog House Doggie Daycare, Mom and Dad had to fill out some paperwork about me and prove I had all my vaccinations. They had a folder I don’t know what vaccination is but they said I have all of them plus flea and tick protection. I had a tick last week my first tick Mom said GROSS and pulled it off of me. The man Kevin turned on a TV monitor and told Mom and Dad to watch while he took me to meet the big dogs. I was scared. We went out a door I wanted Mom and Dad to come, but I liked being on TV. I am very attractive I should be on TV.
The Kevin man took me down a hallway and opened a door to a room with a lot of dogs that were big like me. They ran up they barked I was scared. They all sniffed me all over even my butt I was nervous they barked loud. There was a door to outside I ran out into a fenced yard the dogs came after me sniff sniff bark bark. They made a circle I was in it I did not like that I ran. I went behind the door, they came too. The Kevin man left after a few minutes he said he might put me with smaller dogs it might be better. Mom and Dad did not come they left me there I thought they left me forever I was scared. The Kevin man came and got me after a while and put me in another room with smaller dogs that was better but they never did shut up they barked a lot. I was not afraid with the little dogs we played but I was nervous. Mom and Dad did come back though three hours later they came back I was so glad I was scared. Mom hugged me I was so happy I wanted a hug from Mom she gave me a lot of them. Dad took pictures he said I am always blurry I don’t think it is me I think the camera moves, I am handsome. We got in the car Mom said I was subdued I was not I was just tired. When we got home I drank a LOT of water then I took a nap for 3 hours hours Mom said that daycare had the desired result I was so tired, even the next day I was tired. They said they will take me back I want to go play and I know they will come back now so I don’t mind. Dog House Doggie Daycare is my school I go to school now I am a BIG BOY Takoda.
