Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Momma went to work this morning after we spent an evening preparing a package for a certain Italian duo of pals who either have or had birthdays. It was our first foray into the world of blogging buddies birthday greetings, but I think I got off on the wrong paw. My mom and I found some goodies that we (I) love and on Sunday, we packed them up. Mom was going to mail the package on Monday, but she was running late and left the unopened package behind when she went to work. She forgot that I have an awesome tracking shnoz for all things edible and squeakable. By the time she returned from wherever it is that she goes, I'd consumed my Italian friends' goodies. Mom seemed panicked. I wasn't feeling too good. And, I'd played with my buddies' toys as well! You can imagine the terror I felt when Mom came home! OMD!

Mom loaded me in the car, cause my belly was so swollen, and hauled me off to the V-E-T, who I happen to like a lot, cause he gives me the awesome treats after we're done. Not THIS time! I got something called x-rays, cause Mom told him that I ate Dad's glove as well as everything else, and then got a "SHOT" to "calm" my tummy. Yuck! It seemed like days before Mom came back to get me, so I jumped up on her and the V-E-T said I needed to stop doing that. I've had a good nap now, and Dad just came home and ON LEASH, we walked around the block, as the good V-E-T said we must. No offleash partying for me today and worse, no dinner - ARGGHHHHHHH!!! Be back with you all soon.

Loves and Licks,

xo Sammie

I will be OKay, but feeling a bit under the weather. Love you all.

That sounds like something my brother would do! Which is why everything (even non-edibles) is kept in food safe.

Hehe, must be something about those Golden Boys....Alfie demolished my first attempt at their birthday package and Mum had to redo it!
Also, last night Mum took Alfie to a match at our club for which she had cakes and raffle prizes....she left him for two minutes to go and pay for fuel and when she came back he had demolished the lot....paper everywhere, chewed packaging....and no sign of the 16 snowball cakes! Worse of all, Mum had made all the big fancy rosettes for the match, and when she came back Alfie had removed them all from their protective packaging and was sitting on top of them! How can he be the best behaved and still be so naughty sometimes?

Gee, we're sorry you don't feel well but that middle photo is very provocative; published that in Playdog Magazine. We must say however, that's was very careless behavior. And an additional vet bill on top of everything else. Shame, shame, shame. Your mom should know better. We bet she got a spanking from your dad.

GoldenSamantha said...

I agree with you totally. Mom should know better, even though she had it on top of the dining room table and I never thought of trying to snag anything from up there. But now she knows to put things on top of her closet, cause I can jump fairly high. She also brought in a large plastic box with a plastic lid this morning. I think she means to keep extra goodies away from any place I can reach them forevermore, sniff. Mom got harsh words from Dad, but Dad got in trouble with Mom too, cause don't forget, I also stole a leather glove that they still haven't found hehe. That glove is the reason for the xray. Mom thought I ate it, silly Ma. When I have access to so many cookies?

Hope those treats were worth all the trouble. And we surely hope you are feeling better. We bet Mom won't forget the package the next time.
