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!

Part II - Spurned! And... a Lovely Award

Well, I tried. Evfurrything I could. Playbows, "Sammie-invitational-groans" that I can find from deep within when I'm so inspired and... Nothing, Nada, Zero... she's such a snooze...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. And... she very non-chalantly spurned my attempts - and on World Cat Day, no less - to offer her my bouncy, gallumphing company with ever such a slight upturn of her jaw. I wish she weren't so standoffish. The nerve!

Yeah... I sorta hurt, but quickly found another pal to play with. Goodhearted soul that I am, I'll keep trying!

And on another front, I was so very honored to receive this magnificent award from Nigel, Sola and Truffles at Life with Dogs (http://feeds2.feedburner.com/NigelSolaCo). A zillion licks and woofs for this thrilling and pawesome golden hydrant! If you haven't yet checked out Life With Dogs, go and sniff around their blog now!

Hugs xo,
Sammie

Hmm... too bad about the cat. I'll ask Zim if he has any pointers for you - that little brother of mine has won over every cat in the neighborhood!

Ya can't win 'em all, Samantha. Sometimes those kitty-cattys can be really snotty. We live with four of them. Three love us and one thinks that her kitty litter doesn't stink, if you know what we mean☺

Sam said...

Congrats on the award, Sammie! What an honor it must be to be picked as one of five from hundreds and hundreds of Nigel's followers!

Nice award! I saw on Sploring Wolfies that your pretty paws smell like 'popcorn'. We know our dogs' feet smellies too. We say 'cornbread' cause we're from the south.

We have 6 dogs...one is a golden.
