DAY TWO IN GEORGIA

Well this is the last of our stay down south and we are getting ready to gather our belongings to head home.   This morning I fed Bella and she didn’t quite finish her morning meal.  But I left it down on the floor so she could finish it at a later time.  Russ’s sister has 3 cats.   After awhile,  I looked down and their black cat, Salem, was at  Bella’s bowl eating her leftovers.   We all agreed that apparently, this was in retaliation for Bella eating his cat food when we first arrived here. LOL.   After breakfast, we went to the Mall of Georgia to visit a very special young lady and her new family.

We spent the afternoon with someone very special to me.  Many years go, I met  I met Megan.   She quickly became my #2 daughter and we have been very close since .  She married a wonderful man, who I had never met, and 4 months ago gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.  We met them at the Mall Of Georgia and had brunch. Megan’s husband Ed is wonderful and the baby was beautiful. The Mall was huge and absolutely stunning   Te landscaping was like i never saw before.   I suddenly realized that I had forgotten Bella’s service jacket back the house.   I have never done that before and I was sure that we would not be able to get into a restaurant without it.   Then I remembered that I had her ID on my purse as a backup.    The staff was wonderful.    All I had to do was show them her identification as a Service Dog,  and we went in.   It was wonderful to see Meg again, and meet her family for the first time.   It was a special time.

After the Mall, we want back to Russ’s sister’s house and visited some more.    We  had a wonderful prime rib dinner with Russ’s family and had a great time visiting.

Bella is well again. And she now is ready, willing, and able, to do her “business” anywhere outside of her own back yard.  So my concerns in this area were not valid.   But as you know by now, some of my assumptions prior to the trip,  were wrong!

Look forward to my final blog on Wednesday from home, summarizing what I learned,  first hand, on the subject of traveling with your pup,  evaluation of products that were used, and final outcomes.
