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!

This is how my day started. In jail. Hope your day began on a better note...

Mom's playing judge and official photographer for Shanti here. After lots and lots of work, we eventually...

get to play! Finally, Mom and I drive home and then...

Ma dressed me up AGAIN! (And they worry about my manic moodiness - what's up with that?) Well, there you have it - my #1, top-of-the-list resolution. If I'm gonna wish evfurrybuddy a Happy New Year in a jaunty frame of mind...

I gotta be nekkid kids! Au naturel! So now, here in my buffest buff, I send you a resounding Rrrrrowwwwwl and all my bestest wishes to you for a...

Sammie, what a good sport you are to allow your hooman to dress you up, and even hold the pose for the flashy box! I wouldn't have done half as well.
That pic of you and the little 2-legger is just too cute!
That's a tough break on the obedience trial...bet it's very distracting to be in a strange ring with lots of new sights, sounds & smells...I'm sure you'll qualify next time.
Happy 2010 to you & your hoomans and don't overdo the bubbly tonight. I'm gonna have to watch my hooman furry carefully 'cuz she just started on a pina colada and it isn't even dinnertime here yet!
Your pal,

The OP Pack said...

Happy New Year, Sammie, to you, your family, and the warden at the jail. Oh, just kidding of course.

My Mom never puts funny stuff on me except when we all wore T shirts for Phantom. I consider myself lucky.

Here's to another year of friendship and smiles and holding up each other through the trials. Over the past year you have brought us many giggles, some laughter and always a feeling that the world is a better place because you are in it.
