Mandana is a very talented. Not only does she have a natural heart rate alert, but she also alerts me when my period is about to start. She comes over and stares at me intently until I get up and do something about it (like take extra strength Tylenol). She only does it at the beginning and for someone who is irregular it鈥檚 really helpful. She will even wake me up to alert me at night which is really appreciated.

I鈥檓 so glad Mandana doesn鈥檛 scream like a banshee every time she see鈥檚 a person or dog anymore. To whomever needs to hear this, puppyhood is wild but it does get better. 馃槶

Mandana has this new thing she鈥檚 doing. She lays on my bed like normal but then uses her front legs to drag her body over mine. This stretches her back and pushes her back legs into a sploot position across my lap.
She must find it super comfortable because she immediately falls asleep. It鈥檚 hard to get a good picture of it, but it鈥檚 something like this:

Since she was injured, Mandana got to open her birthday presents over the course of a few days. She received a Tuffy Shark, Playology Squeaky Stick, PetQwerks Cheddar Bone, West Paw frisbee, Outward Hound Alligator and rubber lick mats. As a special treat, Hubbins made her a little strawberry & cream cheese tart with peanut butter and melon on top.

Thank you to everyone who has followed along with us over the past year. I can鈥檛 believe nearly 200 people are invested in her journey to become a service dog. We are so proud of her progress and look forward to many more years together.

Nap Time

Sweet girl can鈥檛 catch a break. She just got over her GI emergency and now she鈥檚 limping from her torn paw pad. I figured this might happen because I use boots all the time so her pads are soft. No regrets. I鈥檝e dug thorns and glass out of her boot treads multiple times. Guess I will need to get some Tuf Foot (tincture of Benzoin) to prevent similar issues in the future.
It wasn鈥檛 serious. It didn鈥檛 go deep and I鈥檓 not worried about infection. Unfortunately, she鈥檚 limping today so we had to reschedule her surprise trip for next week. Her birthday isn鈥檛 until Sunday but she got to open her chew toys early so she has something interesting to do while on bed rest.

Mandana had a great time at the dog run with Loki, Sophie, Marzi and her new BFF Poppy (hound mix). I would love to see Mandana, Emily & Poppy play together 馃槅

Unfortunately, she ripped her paw pad a little. It鈥檚 not bleeding, just tender. I gave her a bath, neosporin and a puppy sock. She should be fine by tomorrow.

By accident, I classically conditioned Mandana to jump out of bed in excitement whenever I put my glasses on. I feel like I have a hysterically useless superpower 馃

We banned the smaller 鈥渂abble鈥 ball because Mandana ran into a wall while chasing it and hurt her wrist. We thought we were safe with the larger 鈥渨obble鈥 ball because it鈥檚 bigger. She likes to wrestle with it more than chase it but today she shoved it so far in her mouth that it got stuck.
Hubbins had to hold her while I twisted the ball and gently pried her mouth open. It took a couple minutes but we finally got it out safely. I was going to give her a mild sedative to relax the muscles if I couldn鈥檛 get it out and if that didn鈥檛 work we headed to the vet. So yeah, no more hard plastic balls that make noise 馃槵

I don鈥檛 take pictures of Mandana when she is hurting & needs my help. Here鈥檚 what the toy looks like. I鈥檓 sure lots of dogs can play safely with them but not our girl.
