BHRR's Atlas was suppose to have had his third CWW session yesterday @ 11 AM yet when I arrived to their place, the door was locked and the sign on the door said they were not open until Noon.

I knew someone was there for one of their lovely doggies was looking at us through the door and I saw laundry being done, yet no one saw me. I tried calling and also emailed from my phone and ended up leaving a message saying I guess we would have to reschedule.

It turns out that the lovely ladies had scheduled me for next Wednesday at 11 AM and were going to make an exception to open early that day to fit us in. HOW kind and sweet was that!!! Somehow, the date was put in for next week, not yesterday and these things happen! I was so touched yet mentioned that truly was not necessary to schedule a session during a time they were not even open. HAVE I mentioned lately; just how special these two women are!!! Exceptional!!!

So, BHRR's Atlas is scheduled for his next session, #3 next Thursday! 🙂

YET, it was not a wasted trip! He was so much more comfortable leaving the house, almost trotting to the car, climbed right up into the car to snuggle on top of Mason 😀 and had a great drop-off at the kids school, did his now 'usual' run through McDonald's for his hashbrown and then to Timmie's for his BLTI(sans tomatoes!) and had a great drive into CWW!

We walked around the small strip mall there, he was fawned over so lovingly by one woman(thought she might try to steal him from me, she wuved him so much!!!) and then we headed back home(NO hesitation getting into the car).

It was a really good experience day for him again and that is what I want for him! Sigh…..he is so precious and you know, I am going to say it…. 😀 Have I said recently, how much he makes my heart throb?

The only sad part to our day is knowing that his back is becoming more affected over time due to those bad hips of his. 🙁 He remains on Deramaxx and the CWW sessions are really helping him and I might see if I can bring him twice a week; yet; at least once a week.

I worry for him…..I just want him to have as much quality time as possible and to experience and see how wonderful life and love can be!!!
