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!

My Second Blogaversary - Pet Hop Edition

Mom here: just about the first word on Sammie's opening blog post was, "Woof." I had had a blog for about three months, but was not satisfied with it, so decided to try writing about our adventures with Samantha. However, being as computer challenged as I am, I had trouble with Blogger in transferring info from my old blog to Sam's new blog. Hence all the fussy writing about the issues! We have never looked back from day 1, however. We've met so many pals, seen so much happen for the good in all your blogs - in two short years - and... enlarged our little doggeh family! Thanks for being our pals! Here's a little look at the past.

Mom has been doin' a bit of bloggie takeover lately... I hope that won't become a habit. Well above, I am with Grandpeep C., who I love with all my heart and soul and mouthyness. This pitchur was taken the first week I came to my pawrents house, when I was nine months old. It was in late May 2007 and I've just never looked back. I love my peeps and my home. Even Avalon is okay. Rescue rules! Really.

The above pitchur is taken from my first blog post which you can find here. Mom and Dad took me for a hike in some of the Open Space here, and I was hot. There was a trough out for the cows and I just jumped in! And below is a photo of me in the fall of 2008, practicing some tracking with my pal, Moritz. I'd like to do more of that... lotsa treats heheh! I'm scenting my way to the white glove at the flag. I'm a total rookie at this, but it's fun.

And Mom is so grateful for your help in trying to get the Linky thingy up, but she's still a total dweeb at figuring it out. She's gonna work on it! Mom also wants to thank so many of you who wished Avalon a speedy recovery. She's doing better than great! Happy Hopping!

Happy Blogaversary!!!

You brought back memories for me... My dogs used to do the same thing in the Bay Area - jumping in the cow/horse troughs. Some of those troughs were so big that they'd doggy paddle around in circles. That memory brings a smile to my face!

Mr. Pip said...

Hi friends!

I just read your question about how we filmed my Rocky video. It was quite a production. My mama rode in my little human sister's wagon and filmed me walking (that's why the camera is at my level). She was also holding my leash so I was walking behind the wagon. My papa had the fun job of pulling the wagon. I think our neighbors thought we were crazy, but oh well ...

Your pal, Pip


Your momma sure likes to talk about herself. Geez. I think she does just fine posting your fotos. I remember when you jumped into the trough.
PS- LOVEd your holiday card.
