|My little Rina girl|
She was such a great dog and I miss her very much.

The morning after graduation I made this:
I chose this song because it is one of my all time favorite songs and I think it really does describe puppy raising, even if it wasn't it's original intention. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :)
|Meade in his Harness! He wasn't very happy because Rob|
had just left...
|Meade's class on the training board!|
We went to sit down and watched the rest of the graduation! There were some pretty good looking dogs in Meade's class.
After graduation one of the GDB employees came up to us and said she looked online and the whole hostage situation was a hoax. :-P How wonderful. Then we took a tour of the campus. It was so cool! After the tour we got Julimae out of the kennel and went to introduce her to Meade. Meade was jealous when he realized she was his "replacement" and didn't like her very much. When we decided to take Rob out to lunch because we didn't get much visiting time before, we put Julimae back in the kennels because we hadn't grabbed her jacket on the way out of the hotel. We went to lunch and discussed stories about Meade and our personal lives. And had a lot of fun. After lunch we went to the hotel room, which was pleasantly void of police, to pack up our car and get Rob and Meade's presents.
We went back to GDB and went to Rob's dorms to give them the presents. We gave Rob his first, we got him a green leather leash with Meade's name stamped on it! He thought it was great! (Thank you, Megan, for making it for us!) Then we gave Meade a couple of ropes and a brand new Goughnut Stick! He thought that the Goughnut was the best thing ever and stopped paying attention to us to chew on it. Right then I remembered that I wanted to try his BZZT thing so I took the Goughnut (he was not happy) and I attempted it. He was confused at first but when he realized he wouldn't get his Goughnut until he howled he howled for us! Rob thought it was really funny and told us he would go home and show his wife. Then, we said our goodbyes and departed...
Want to know the whole story?
It all started when I woke up. I heard my step dad take Julimae out to DYB and he came back in and put her back in the kennel. I fell back asleep and woke up again and took her out myself and fed her. After she got fed my mom took a shower and my dad ate breakfast and I played with her for a while. It was about 8:30 at that time. I took her out again and I came back in and my mom was out of the shower and they were starting to pack up because we weren't going to come back to the hotel room after graduation. My step dad got the first couple things packed and prepared and he went to take them out to the car. When he didn't come back after about ten minutes we started to wonder. Right after our wondering my mom got a call on her phone from a number that she didn't recognize. She answered the phone and it was my step dad, he borrowed someone's cell phone. He told us not to come out of the room and that the hotel was surrounded by police. So I went to look out the window and lo and behold, there were police around our hotel. So we stayed in the room.
A little while later my step dad called again. He had figured out some more stuff. Someone had robbed the hotel and taken the manager hostage and they had a gun. So we stayed in our hotel room some more. I got bored and decided to see if the police had shut down the hotels wifi. They did not, so I posted my depressing blog post and talked to people on Facebook for a while.
Don't you think the police would want to shut down the wifi so that the gunman doesn't have as much access to the outside world? I mean, they could IM some of their goons to go do something or something... I just think it would have been smarter to shut it down. Just in my opinion...
After a little while we got a call straight to our hotel room. I answered and it was the police. They started by asking if my mom and dog were both in the room. I said yes. Then he told me to put a leash on my dog (No, I was just going to let my dog roam free and sic the lunatic with a gun.... :-P) and to come straight out of the room and turn right and they would give us further instruction then.
Me and my mom didn't know if they would want to search our stuff so I stuffed my camera in my pocket and we just left. When we went out of the room and turned right they had a SWAT guy with one of those huge shields and a blinding light. They told us to walk forward and go past them on the right. Behind the shield guy were about twelve police officers with huge guns. Julimae happily trotted by all the men and stopped to sniff the guns. She thought it was a lot of fun. She was even so distracted by the guns she didn't notice the big German Shepard who was very anxious to do some police work.
After walking past the SWAT team we went to the neighboring Wendy's and an officer asked us some questions about if we heard any yelling in the morning, or if we knew anything... etc. We went and met up with my step dad and we told the police that we would rather go to graduation than wait around and do nothing for another two hours. It was about 11:30 at this point, by the way. So he was polite enough and went to get our car for us and we left......

We had a good first part of our trip and Julimae had a lot of fun!

Sorry I haven't posted any Julimae related stuff lately. She is doing well and has gone on several outings (pictures coming). She is doing ok on her training :/ She tries to get out of everything. What I mean by that is whenever we work on down she will either go into her kennel (she knows her kennel is her safe place and will run in to it whenever stuff doesn't go her way) or she will start wagging her tail like crazy and climb on me and lick me. She is a very stubborn girl and VERY opinionated (if you could use that word to describe a dog... Do dogs have opinions?)
Anywho, she will go to school sometime in October I think. She will go with me to Meade's graduation. And now I must go and I will try to get some more posts tomorrow and pictures!

No, I didn't Photoshop them! (I wish my Photoshop skills were that good....... I can barely put David Archuleta's head on someone else and make it look good.) This is what my camera took and it looks like Meade is a genuine Chocolate Lab. If you have any clue why this happened could you please tell me? I'm very confused. Also, how do I submit pictures for GDB's Calendar? Thanks
