Fun Outing

Last weekend I took Fullerton out to his first movie and restaurant. We went to see Marley and Me. (Which is a GREAT movie and had me in tears, and I don't cry at movies.) We got there a little late and the theatre was a bit packed (I thought that it had been out long enough so that it wouldn't be as popular . . . I was wrong) Anyway, we had to go all the way to the back of the theatre and we sat on the end. The lady in the row in front of us turned around and told me she used to be a raiser and had raised two pups for GDB. We chatted for a while until the previews started and I let her pet Fullerton (he has had some people greeting issues and he did really well, I was very proud of him, he only broke his "sit" once) Turns out I kinda knew her, well I remembered her last dog but not her. She actually raised in my group, so she asked me about leaders and I went through the list of all the leaders we have had, turns out we have had four leaders in our group since I started raising, hmm . . . anyway, she knew my first leader and I told her what she was up too. It was so fun to talk with her, I haven't ran into a "past raiser" in a long time. Her last dog left a couple weeks after I started going to classes and became a Breeder. Her first was cc'd and he still lives with her. The previews started and she wished me good luck with Fullerton, after telling me how gorgeous and well behaved he was, thank you very much. :D Fullerton was awesome! For those of you that have seen it there is a lot of barking and loud noises and the only time he got up or stirred at all was when the next door neighbor girl screamed, (and that is not even very loud in the movie) but he settled right back down for the rest of the movie. He did great in the crowd of people when we were leaving the theatre too, he didn't try and sniff anyone, just kept his head aimed straight ahead.

After the movie me and my sister decided to go out to eat. I thought that it would be a good chance to introduce Fullerton to restaurants. I have been working on food avoidance with him, so it was time to put that to the test. It was 3:00 in the afternoon so we were there with like three other people, which was also nice because we could avoid the people distraction part. We went to Bajio (if you don't know what it is, it's a Mexican place kinda like Cafe Rio, or Costa Vida) We went through the line and Fullerton was great and stayed right with me as we went. After we had our food and drinks (Fullerton got a little excited when I got ice from the ice machine, I started giving him ice cubes a couple weeks ago and he LOVES them) we went and sat down. I had Fuller do a "down" next to my chair, he was good for a little bit until he noticed some food on the floor, and started to crawl for it, so I gave him a little correction and after that he was perfect until we left. Below is a picture of him in the restaurant, I love the hanging vines and pottery tile they have all over the place. It is really cool.
Then on the way home. My sister broke her sunglasses, so I put them on Fullerton. Too cute not to share. (I hate that you can see my reflection in them though. *sigh*) :D
Happy Weekend everyone!!!!!!!!!!

Ahhh cute picture of Fullerton in the glasses! I'm glad that he was so good at the movies, and it's neat that you ran into a past raiser. :)
