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!

(From Mom here) Hello friends... Here's that picture of Shanti and her mama, Sue, winning their Novice B at Del Valle a few weeks ago. Sue was instrumental in finding Sammie for us through Norcal Golden Retriever Rescue. She lives quite near us and had a terrible infection that required hospitalization last night. (Sammie here now) Guess what? Shanti came over for a playdate!

Sorry that I keep using Roxio, but it is so very useful to present a story! Hope you'll indulge me yet another time!


After all the Yogund and "escape" from the X-pen, Shanti (blue collar) and me got to snuggle with mama.

And Ozzie got to finally have a rest, later realizing that Shanti was just a guest and not a new permanent resident.

I love playdates! Other than my brother and sisters, my favorite pal is Harper - a PBGV. He's really cool. Short, but cool!

We love your Roxio shows - they are so well done. Shanti looks like a really nice pup. Bet you two had a lot of fun. Loved that song too. Poor Ozzie - maybe he needs to have a playdate too.

Woos, the OP Pack

Oooooo, is eFURyone feeling betters? Yesh, kitties can really get upset if they think that they are going to have to manage more dogs. They hate extra work☺
