Hip! Hip!

Arthur passed his training!  It’s not official yet, I have to go to our last class on Saturday to do some paperwork, and then we have to send it in, but he’s passed all of the tests that he needs to pass to be a full-fledged service dog.  The really good news about this is that I was supposed to sew “in training” patches under the “service dog” patches on his vest, but due to my lack of domestic skills and also to procrastination, I never did it, and now I don’t need to worry about it!  Yay for procrastinating!  Also, it means that we no longer have to go to class at 3pm on Saturday afternoons, so I no longer need to start my Saturday at the salon in the middle of the night to get everyone in before I leave early.  Yay for sleeping in!  Yay Arthur!

The other big news of the week is that, well, let me back up.  Five or six weeks ago, I lose track, I put in an offer on a house.  Because it’s a short sale, we’ve been waiting to hear from the seller’s bank about my offer, and we finally heard from them yesterday.  I agreed to their concessions, but they have to sign paperwork so it’s not “official” yet, but should be by this evening, and I should have a closing date.  Yay for a new, permanent place to live!  I’ll post some photos soon.

And boo for packing.  It starts next week.
