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!

Winner! Pressies! Such Goodies - Oh My!

First, gotta say that I believe mama got carried away with the big, bold red Post announcement yesterday. It still looks like a major emergency happened all over my page hehee! But most of all, however, I send humongously loud woofs to thank so many of you for commenting and/or e-barking and even Facebooking me yesterday. After scratching my head a bit and woofing with ma, we would probably do this differently if we had something like this again. As we mentioned to the twenty-two of those who emailed, we wish we only had 4th email places in our box hehee, but we don't. We want to congratulate the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Sedona (http://tollertales.blogspot.com/) for being the 4th e-barker to paw my address yesterday! You'll get your goodies plus the Happy Hearts cookies very soon!!!

A true Awwwwwww pic of you, Sedona!

And in breaking news...

Ding dong! (Lots of Wuffa greetings...) This smells outrageously delicious!!! I can only tell that the package is from Ohio - hmmmmm - it's not my barkday... hmmmmm.

I wrestle with the box, but am not nearly as dextrous as my pal, Mason Dixie, who is a pawsome Houdini at getting goodies out of packages!

Oh my dogness! Look at these goodies! A huge bag of Salmon treats from Zuke's (I LOVE these!) and some more treats that are blueberry and pumpkin flavored - they smell so good that mom is going to figure out how to use these ingredients for a people recipe!

There is the cutest squeaky stuffie (I'll try not to demolish it, promise!) and BuBBLES - for humans to entertain me! Mom loves making bubbles for me!

And we finally figure out who to thank for these fabulous pressies! Gus and Waldo pawed these to me in friendship - how sweet is that? Thank you so much, sweet Gus and Waldo and mom, Allison. What a generous spirit - I just love these gifts and foodables; a zillion woofs! Please drop by to sniff around Gus' and Waldo's place at http://reflectionsofadogmom.blogspot.com/ for some fun!

Look at my state of bliss as Dad feeds me the blueberry and pumpkin treats! YUMZERS!!!
