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!

Beautiful Sunday Awards


It’s been a while since I’ve posted and Mom finally promised she’d get going again this beautiful Sunday morning. So much has happened that I don’t know where to begin. I got my stitches out on Friday and went to my favorite park yesterday – leashless (hoo-roooo!) – and frolicked in the creek which felt so good! We don’t have pix but you can believe that I had a big smile on my face as I chased my beloved kong once again! I get to go again today and then to the spa, cause I’m pretty dirtied up from all the “events” of the last two weeks ahem. In the interim, I am pawsomely grateful to have received two awards!

Snoop, Alfie, Rosie and Gabbi of the Dughallmor Beagles (http://dughallmorbeagles.blogspot.com/) and Chase (http://chasethepuggle.blogspot.com/) tagged me with a Life Is Grand award. Thanks so, so much!

Here are five things that definitely make my life grand:
1. Mom and Dad adore me no matter what I do or get into (hehe) – every moment that I get to do something (or nothing) WITH them is grand!
2. I get yummalicious food twice a day – lately some organic soft food has been added to it and man, is that pawsomely delicious!
3. I have comfy beds in the rooms where my peeps spend most of their time so I can rack out and catch up on my Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzs with sweet, uninterrupted dreams!
4. My tumtum feels so much better now and my outlook on the world is back to normal or even better than it was before and I know my recovery was hugely due to the outpouring of love, encouragement and support from my blog pals! Thank you all again so much.
5. The weather is fine, the flowers, cut grass, trees (gophers and squirrels) all smell so good that I’m very receptive to “LOVE” that’s in the air (or on the doggie internet (blush, wink wink).

And Checkers (http://checkersthepeekapoo.blogspot.com/) bestowed me with the most lovely bouquet of pink roses. Thank you so much! I adore these, Checkers and I’d like to pass them on to some of you – These pink roses are given to friends, bringing them a sweet and fruitful day. Those who receive these roses as a gift need to pass it on to ten friends to show them you care. And to those who received the roses, it's to show you are never forgotten.

I'd like pass along this bouquet to:

Huffle (sending vicariously on the part of Ozzie) (http://hufflemawson.blogspot.com )

Gus, Louie and Callie (http://gustheblueheeler.blogspot.com/)

Have a superb Sunday pals!

Hugs and Licks xo, Sammie

Heya Sammie,
It's great to have you back with us, we missed you. Soon your coat will grow back over the patch and you'll look as good as new. We bet it was a lot of fun getting back to the park and kong chasing. Don't overdo it girl. And like most girls, you need to watch wahat you eat. Congratulations on your well deserved awards.
