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!

It has been a long, dry spell since July... while we fired our secretary, we still haven't had any luck finding a replacement, so we hired Momma again to help with this post heheh!

We got an enticingly fragrant box, brought by the brown truck man. Guess what? It was from our fun and very entertaining pal, Chester!

We started pawing at the box and out came some colorfully wrapped pressies and a card!

Wait til you see what was in THIS!!!

And Sammie started right in, working on this pressie, below!

Isn't it cuuuuute? Not to be outdone, Avalon grabbed the other gift and began tearing off chunks of wrapping...

... while Sammie pondered on negotiating the rest of the pretty purple tissue! Looks like a very pawesome newspaper woo hoo!!!

But not for long! Very soon after Sammie got the Loofa Gazette hot doggeh freed from its wrapping, she ate off one ear. Soon after, Avalon snagged it away.

So Sammie picked up the "Daily Fetch" and played with her own special newspaper!

Check out this awesomely fabulous card! Chester, you are too cool! And y'know what? We also love to play "seek toyz"! Momma hides a kong without a rope (empty) somewhere, while we're in a sit/stay. Then she returns and tells one of us to "get it"!!! Hope we get to meet you one day - maybe we could play it together!

We absolutely-tutely adore our pressies and can't thank you enough! Especially for the chicken breast yummies - ohhhhhh, they are so good. We're not surprised you had difficulty restraining yourself! We don't blame you!

Here are some photos of us enjoying your treats to the max! Slurp! Delish! Drool drool!

Here's what is left of poor Loofa Gazette! Score: Both ears, an eyebrow, the tail and a hind leg. Probably not as thorough as you, Chester, but not bad for us.

All that work made us furry, furry sleepy, as you can imagine.

We're dreaming of those super nomzers chicken goodies and hope we get some more when we wake up! Again, a zillion thanks Chester - what a wonderful treasure trove!
