Today was a somewhat big day for the little guy. We went to the mall, where we went to US Cellular (get Alex's number on a different phone and pay our bill), Master Cuts and Rite Aid. After that we went to Neverland Comics so Alex could buy a new disc.
When we first got to the mall one of the security guards wannabe's/maintenance guys was opening the door for the customers and he looked at Eclipse and said "sorry, no dogs allowed" all I said was "he's a service dog" and he said ok and opened the door for us. I didn't even get the "in training" part out but whatever. That's the first time someone has EVEN thought about denying us access, a place where we quite regularly had GDB meetings held. Whatever, all's well!
Also at the mall... I'll copy & paste an e-mail I sent to a couple lists I'm on;
Sounds like a bad story coming up, doesn't it? It's actually the exact opposite!
Hug your dogs a little extra for me tonight!

Yes, that little girl who was so polite is younger than Emily! They have a Golden Retriever at home that just had puppies 10 days ago, so she was very good with Eclipse. Sorry, no shamelessly cute pictures of the little girl and Eclipse. I was too focused on keeping it controlled!
Then at Neverland Comics the guy saw him and said he had to go find the cat that was there since she's not used to other animals coming on her turf, even though she's de-clawed he didn't want her to have a bad reaction towards Eclipse that could be detrimental to either of them. It was a very nice gesture and he was relieved to find out she was back in the office out of the way.
It's so nice to know that even though these aren't the traditional green GDB jackets that the area is used to they're still, for the most part, very accepting and we have few issues. Wal-Mart.... we'll update you on. *wink*
Enough yacking, I suppose. Enjoy the pictures!
