The car wash results are in...

Thank you so much to the Explorers Search and Rescue for donating their time today washing cars, and raising a total of $900!!! There were at least 15 people there (13 of whom had never met me) to wash cars! I hung out with them for a couple of hours in Granite Falls, and although I wasn't much help, Cameron and Madison were, and Mom was able to talk with some of the people who were donating to my cause. I've got some pictures that show our fun day! So between the car wash and other donations over the past two weeks, our new grand total is $4,120! We are so close--only $880 left to go! Mom is going to talk to Denise this week to see when I can go up again to see the doggies. I'll keep you posted!

Carolyn is helping me wash cars--I thought it was more fun to watch the soap squeeze out of the sponge!

Cameron and Madison (my brother and sister for those of you who don't know) are bringing the people in with their great sign holding abilities.

A good line of cars going on!

That's how you get it done!

Playing in the bubbles instead of working!

They had the Search and Rescue truck out there with the lights flashing!

Here I am sitting inside the Search and Rescue truck. Hopefully this will be the only time I'm inside this thing!!!

Car wash on Sunday

For those of you who live in Washington, there is going to be a car wash fundraiser this Sunday (June 22nd) at Oso Lumber in Granite Falls from 9:00-3:00 or 4:00. The Explorers Search and Rescue are putting this on to raise money for my dog. If you want to help you can come and wash OR stop by and get your car washed! I'll be there around 12:00 and will stay as long as I can make it without melting down. I hope to see you there!

I'm on a roll!

The weather is nicer, and that's when I do my best escaping. I've got three consecutive days, I'm going for four! My adventure for today was to wait until my sister left the front door open. (I love human error). Mom was in the back room, and of course, it got quiet. She came out to find the front door wide open, and the search ensued. I was hanging out in the car. AAAHHH! Now I couldn't let Mom and Dad off that easy, so I decided to sneak a can of shaving cream outside when they weren't looking. Mom snapped a few pictures of my fun before hosing me down. Enjoy the pictures. I think the next thing we're going to do is raise money for hair coloring to cover the gray hair Mom now has!

A mother's worst nightmare

Here's a new story for Mom's book. I was up at 3:00 this morning playing on the computer and mom heard me, so she put me back to bed and locked my door. When she came into my room at 8:00 to wake me up, I was gone. My window was open, so she ran to the backyard to find me fast asleep on the trampoline. She checked to make sure I was breathing, (and then I'm sure she wanted to kill me) and then just collapsed. Apparently it's not a good way for a mom to wake up. I on the other hand, woke up, dropped my drawers, walked to the edge of the trampoline, relieved myself, and then started jumping away. It's been a long, emotional day, and mom is going to bed (but not before she sets a window alarm). We can't wait until a dog can come home, and hopefully Mom won't have to deal with this again.

Went a wandering today

Today my Grum took me to the State Park to visit my Uncle Stan and Auntie Noel while they were camping, and guess what??? I wandered off! Uncle Stan and Pa panicked--Grum found me in her car. Mom is very glad she wasn't there, and can't wait until I get my dog!

Some days are better than others

For those of you who are wondering about the update on my visit to Brigadoon last Wednesday, it could be summed up in one word: DISASTER! I was cranky cranky cranky. Mom promised Denise (the owner of Brigadoon) that I'm rarely that nasty, but for whatever reason (I'm not going to disclose that to my mom because I can't talk--besides, its more fun to keep her guessing) I was in rare form. I pulled out all the stops: trying to step on the dogs' tails, hitting them, throwing a pillow on the ground, throwing myself on the ground, refusing to give the dogs a treat. I even pulled out my favorite "angry" saying which is "noooo body bakes my buddies" from Veggie Tales. To clarify, I don't have functional language, but I can pull out this phrases from a movie when I'm mad. So after bringing out Bond for a couple of minutes, and Gypsy for even less time, we left Brigadoon after 25 minutes. (It takes an hour to drive there). Mom was disappointed because Nana was here from Texas and I wouldn't cooperate. She did bring her camera and was able to snap a couple of shots before things went really south. Here they are--notice they are all BEFORE the dogs came out! Mom hopes next time it'll be better.

I thought I'd post the note that came home in my communication book last Thursday. I'd try to explain the story, but the note just sums it up!

"Oops! Aaron finally reached far enough to pull the fire alarm! An assistant was holding his hand but the other arm stretched! We all got a nice shower! :)"

By shower she means we had to stand outside in the rain (not the overhead sprinklers went off). Nothing like adding a little excitement to the end of the school year!

I'm heading to Brigadoon again tomorrow, so I'll have Mom post some pictures. :)

Week 12 Update & Story

As of June 1, we have been fundraising for 12 weeks--you have donated a total of $3,075! Way to go!

Now for my naughty story....on Monday my mom went out to dinner with some girls to celebrate a birthday, which left Dad at the helm for the evening. After Mom left I went to my room and played on the computer, and that's where Dad thought I was. But it was too quiet, so he went to check on me and I wasn't there (shocker). What he found when he opened up the bathroom door was an empty can of shaving cream (that had been opened that morning), and a bathroom floor under a half-inch of water! It even leaked into the garage! Needless to say the bathroom floor is clean (you're welcome Dad) and I had a few minutes of fun. Mom is just glad it wasn't on her watch so she didn't have to clean it! Maybe I don't want a service dog, he might take all of my trouble fun away....
