Travis goes to PetSmart!

Well, night three of Mission: Crateless Travis was a smashing success! Mr. Bruises was home and came to bed last. I woke up a few times in the middle of the night and thought that he must have put Travis in his crate since there wasn't a dog in bed with us. Riley was laying in his bed beside me. Well, at 6, I got licked on the nose! It' was Travis.

He managed to go back to sleep until 7:30. No accidents! WHOO HOOO! He's such a big boy. As a reward, I decided to take him to PetSmart since I wanted to look for a padded, fabric Elizabethan collar for his surgery.

He was so excited when we pulled in. I think he remembered coming to class here. He was so excited to smell everything and he started perusing the toy aisle. We picked out a toy for Riley, then one for Travis. We then went and got another Easy Walk Harness since Travis was wearing Riley's and they would both need them for their trip to Goldstock. We picked up a few other odds and ends.

While shopping, we encountered some customers. Travis jumped on two kids, ignoring my scolding. He tried to do the same on some other people. I worked with him some more and he finally remembered his training that we don't jump!
As we were waiting in line to check out, Travis was sitting and being so good, who came around the corner, but Miss Lisa!!!! I was hoping to run into her so that she could see how much Travis had grown. He of course snagged some treats from her.

We then completed our trip by going through the Starbuck's drive thru and Travis got a Puppy Latte (Whipped cream in a Starbuck's Dixie cup with a dog biscuit in it).

Good job Travis(on being crateless)!
I usually take the girls to Petco but they stay in the car. It's kinda hard trying to hold 2 leashes and push the cart for dog food and toys.
