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!

The Upshot...

Thanks for all your very pawsome comments. If my peeps are so dumb as to leave out goodies for me to avail myself of, then they deserve the problems I develop - hehe. Luckily I am really okay, but it's taken 24 hours for my peeps and the V-E-T to understand what I did! Nobody could believe I might be able to consume a leather glove (dummies) but after a walk this afternoon (on leash again... how I hate leashes!), I got into the car and we had a wild ride home. Upchucky all over the back of the car, then more calls to the V-E-T, who prohibited me from having any FOOD tonight (imagine!). Then I asked to go out and ate more grass - Mom heeled me right back onto the sofa. A few minutes late, I upchuckied again. I think that was it.

Mom donned HER gloves and started sorting through (this is gross!) my various detritus. She found five leather fingers and an assortment of pieces that look like jerky. She says she's going to create a shadow box for the V-E-T with the "pieces" along with the intact Right glove (ha-rooooo!). And hopefully, that's the end of this installment regarding my latest attempt at directing tons of attention towards me, Sammie -- thanks -- for that is what I love more than anything. My mom and dad also thank you for your kind and funny comments. I'm so lucky to be okay.

What do gloves taste like? Beef jerky? I've never tasted glove before and after your experience I'll probably never try it. Those treats look like they're well worth a belly ache though. Yum!

Woos, the OP Pack

I bet the mom and dad have learned their lesson from this episode and will behave better from now on. You poor girl having to endure at least a double upchuck just to make the point to them about leaving stuff out in your way; what's a girl to do. We're glad your okay and your dad's back will feel better now that his wallet is so much lghter. All lesons come at a price. Fortunately we've never had had any lessons taught around here (he-he-he-he). Glad you're all back to normal.

Ha ha, that is like when the sock came out my bum. Boy was momma surprised.

I hope your dad has recovered his glove so that you can get on with things now.
