The zoo, Photos, Texas Thunderstorm, and gate...

Hi all! We survived the zoo yesterday. Koolio did an awesome job. He was pretty overwhelmed by the scent of the place and his poor nose has to be very tired today. LOL! He did not like the bison(did you know they growl), the giraffes, or the tigers. We didn't get close up to any of the animals. I let Hannah's teacher take her to see the animals and we stayed back some. I just thought for a first zoo visit Koolio needed to see that it would be o.k. Well, I take that back. We did get close to the giraffes. He pulled quite a bit and heeling was a little challenging but I could not believe how awesome he did. I thought for sure he'd pull me way more than he did and even expected to be on the ground at least once. LOL! I had called before we went and asked about him being with us. The lady told me it was fine. No problem, etc. We walked in the zoo and by the time I got to the first exhibit I was pounced on by 4 zoo officials telling me I couldn't have him there. I told them I had called and was told he could be there and then they started asking about his service dog certification, etc. What kind of dog was he. Who is he for. I told them. Showed them his tags and his certificate card and then they just let it be, except I noticed that we were followed by one of the zoo officials through the entire zoo. She tried to be inconspicious but did not do a good job. LOL! Mrs. Skelton(Hannah's reg ed teacher) was ready to aide me should I need her to back me up! She's so awesome! So, I think it went really well overall and we'll definately go again.

After the zoo we went to the park and had a picnic lunch and played on the playground afterward. Everyone was amazed how Koolio just sat there while everyone just ate including myself because at home I'm constantly telling him no. LOL! A man came by about a block from us on a horse and Koolio was scared of it. Growling and barked but he didn't get up or anything. I was really impressed. Hannah had a great time among her regular ed classmates. They all love her and it was so wonderful to see her have such a great time.

When we got home yesterday Koolio was pooped. He lay down and didn't get up for a couple of hours. I felt so bad. Like maybe I overworked him. I hope not. He seems fine this morning.

We did get a baby gate and used it until around 4 a.m. this morning. That is when Koolio experienced his first Texas thunderstorm and he was SPOOKED. He wanted daddy! LOL! I didn't want him to wake up Hannah so I took the gate down and let him sleep in the room next to dad for a little while until it was over.

Time to get this crew to school! Here's a few photos from the zoo!

Hannah's teacher; Mrs. Mobley so graciously took this photo of us when we had finished going through the zoo and was getting ready to load the buses. We were pooped!

The Kool Man at the park while we all ate our picnic lunches. He was so good.

Mr. Koolio at the zoo. We weren't allowed in the Brazos exhibit so he and I chilled while waiting for the others to come out the other side of it. Isn't he a gorgeous fellow!?!?

This is Koolio on his first bus ride. He did great. He sat in the floor there and back.

This is Hannah and Mrs. Mobley(her teacher). She is the bestest teacher ever!

This is Hannah enjoying her picnic lunch. She really had such a great time I think. I was so excited to watch her have fun with her NT peers!

Marcey,
Looks like things are going well and Koolio is doing to great! I love the pictures, and I'm especially impressed that he looks for his girl all the time. That is such a great thing! We are still deeply missing Emma, but keeping in contact with Jeremy. Keep up the blog, I love to stay in contact.

Sally, Margs mom
