What a beautiful day the sun is shining and we are up. We did our morning ritual and then I decided to hit the Pilates Machine and then our sweet friend Jeanine said she would watch Hayliegh, so I could hike up cowl’s mountain. I haven’t hiked it in a while due to Hayliegh’s condition. This was areal treat for me.
On my hike I saw some old friends like Larry he hikes the mountain twice a day and his wonderful wife Wanda sits at the bottom waiting for him w/ their black pug who snorts and grunts, cute little thing. I met Dexter the little terrier who melted the mountain worriers hearts. The whole time I missed my Hayliegh and kept saying this is what it will be like when she leaves this earth. I practices saying “I love you Hayliegh” when I thought of her.
I went to pick up Hayliegh at Jeanine and ended up making a homemade apple pie for her. I love cooking and she loved having my culinary skills in her kitchen.
I had to run to the store for a few things and while in the store the checker said I cannot have Hayliegh in the grocery cart which I completely understand the reasons, yet i couldn’t understand why i see so many people doing that wi smaller service dogs. I then asked her what about the other dogs I see in the basket will you be asking them to take their dog out? She replied they have a little blanket on the seat and I said great I will do the same. She then said the other dogs are smaller and I said my dog will fine on the cart. She said your dog isn’t as tiny and I “she fits just fine on the seat of the cart and she will be on a blanket.” I went up to her quietly in the line and shared that if my dog can’t and others can it equals = discrimination. In the past the same store has come to me on occasion about service dog laws. Thought to ponder? PS I have made a note to check on service dogs and grocery carts post tomorrow.
Sweet Jeanine had me buy some sharp Cheddar cheese to go w/ that apple pie and some hot tea. It was a nice treat as I don’t eat dessert, so I splurged and had three bits and those three bits were scrmptious and the company equal. Hayliegh enjoyed her treats and now home she is having yellow squash as her dessert time lasts for hours.
