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!

I Get Exhausted After Working Too!

I know how hards Mama and Dad's work is, but I put my two cents' worth in too. Don't have the pictures of today's workout, but I'm so tired after obedience training that even Ma's flashie beast doesn't faze me in the least. Pawesome treats, but dinner was sparse, cause my teacher called me "fat" again tonight. Arrrgghhhhh.

Mango said...

Yuh. I think the people do not appreciate how much work we do especially guarding the estate when they are not home to do it. Rest up.


The Thundering Herd said...

Just more of you to love, right?

SGR said...

Woof! Sammie What??? Fat!!! That's not nice to say. You are just a full figured golden. Just walk it off for a mile or 2 a day. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

You would think a dog teacher would know the difference between fat and fluffy - you look perfect to us.

NCmountainwoman said...

Poor Sammie looks tired and a little depressed. And very sweet.

Chester said...

I'm sure you are tired Sammie! Mental work can be just as tiring as physical.

FAT??? Makes me wonder just how great of shape your teacher is in.

Keep up the hard work but make sure you get paid well for it!

Chester ;0=)

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Next time you should tell your teacher that you are NOT FAT, you are just BIG BONE! You are not fat Sammie.

Martha and Bailey said...

Sammie, you are a hard worker and you deserve your snooze.
Now we have to tell you that our vet has mentioned that F word!
What is it with these humans. They are so obsesses with weight themselves they are now transferring this on to us dogs.
When did you last see a basset with a waistline?
Exactly - we rest our case!
love you Sammie
Martha & bailey xxxx

Dory and the Mama said...

You are SO not FAT!!!

That would make me like....HUGE!!


Tanuki Maxx said...

Huh..them humans! they cant tell the difference between fat and furrily fleshy!


bbes tribe said...

We think your teacher made you depressed by calling you fat. Maybe it's just hair/fur. That can add the look of weight.....
We enjoyed our visit. Hope you don't mind if we follow & visit you from time to time.
Glad to meet ya..
Ernie & Sasha

Ben said...

It is called pleasently plump and it just means more to love. But if you are really worried you could be like us fellas and eat carrots rather than treats...we love 'em.


Life With Dogs said...

Don't pay any heed to that nonsense! :) You are lovely!

Dog By Nature said...

What?!!! You are not fat Sammie...not even "big boned! Don't make us drive up there to sneak you some treats:)

big hugs,

M, S & Kona
