Grab your tea cup, or coffee mug...I have oodles and oodles to woof about!
Better get comfy...

Well, me and growlmy left on a road trip, last Thursday.
It was a cold and blustery day, we saw snow showers, rain and even the sun tried to come through...and that made a rainbow!
So beautiful when one of those is glowing in the sky!

The traffic was unpleasant, and heavy, and the construction did not help!

Then the dude at the border asked growlmy if she had the right papers for me. In all the times we have gone 'international' no one has ever asked to verify my eligibility to travel...I look so full of vim and vigor, and they can see my dangling, jingling, legal pendants hanging from my collar. Whatevfur! (Of course growlmy did have them...)

We made a stop in a pet shop...and That was an amazing place...i could sniff and smell all sorts of things...except growlmy had to keep a very close watch on me, cause I was about to ...well you know! BOL! So she didn't linger there very long, a pity, cause I would have enjoyed more explorations of that place...

Murphy was so glad to see me, that he snarled at me when I came through his door! OMD! Not a good start to being in another doggy's den!
But he did let me come in the living room...and we shared chew sticks together, but he walked off from his, so I finished it off for him...waste not...want not! BOL!

Then I heard growlmy on that thing that dings a lot, but it stops when someone takes it apart and talks to it...she said my name a few times, too. Now who on earth could she be talking to about me. I don't have a vet or groomer in Canada!
I shall just have to wait/see what that was all about...because growlmy did not discuss it with me when she put that thing back on the wall.

The next day, growlmy left me with my Auntie and Murphy, to do errands with her aunt.
And then my auntie left, too! :(
Two sad and lonely pups!
When growlmy came back, she took me for a nice walk...but it was still so cold that she made me wear my coat! GRR! Murphy just giggles at me...I do not think he even has one at all, his own furs are so thick and warm. When I got back, it was time for Murphy and me to do the Zoomies! I ran up the stairs, around the bedroom, down the stairs, around the coffee table and back again...over and over! I jumped over stuff,and over Murphy, too. And we both were having a hoot making a barking concert!
Finally we calmed down, and I tried to make off with Murphy's Krabby way! He growled and I had to give it I went to find his squirrel dude...score! It was under the coffee table! Then He wanted that one too...he doesn't like to share...but I guess I am not much different! BOL!

Then once again, growlmy and Auntie left us alone...for hours. (I heard them say they had to go to their aunt's 91st birthday party.)
So Murphy and I had some fun!
We went table dancing...on auntie's coffee table! When I stand on that I can see out the living room window so much easier! Murphy will not allow me to stand on his private viewing chair.
And the window sill which could easily accommodate me is chock full of plants in pots, so I can't get on it.
The table is the only way.
So when my auntie went in the living room, she could see the tablecloth all shoved to one end, and the evidence clearly visible in the form of scratches from my not so dainty feet!
OMD! She was not happy!
And I was in the dog house!
I did not repeat that game anymore during my stay...

On my walk that day I found a half bagel in the piles of leaves. Too bad growlmy saw it just as I was about to snag it! Shucks! I am always getting busted!

A bit further along, something else got my attention. I pretended to be casual...and growlmy thought she was seeing a little black and white shoe...(OMD! BOL!)Good grief! It was far better than that!
Suddenly when I was about to take a good sniff, or perhaps a lovely roll in the delicacy before me, growlmy realized that it was a dead groundhog! UGH! Road the leaves and tall grass...busted again!

Yesterday, Growlmy's aunt came along to visit.
I have to try and be nice and quiet and careful with her. She being a teacher would not tolerate naughty or raucous behavior!
She had her 91st birthday! Wow!
After they had a meal together, my auntie took Great-aunt back to her apartment.

And growlmy had to corral me to get my car harness on...Good grief, why! We aren't going home yet, I did not see any bags being packed.
Well, we drove around in her van for a bit, and then I could see we were at a place where there were lots of dogs. LOTS of dogs! It was a dog park! Oh, I was excited!
And then this quite large brown and white dog came over to us, with his boss-man.
It was another Dogster dog!
It was my pal, Riley, with his dad, and they had come just to see us and have a play date in the doggy park.
How cool is that?!
So I got into the park with all the other dogs. I just charged in there! To have fun...but it wasn't fun...for me...too many big dogs wanted to make their acquaintances of me...and I did not like all their sniffing of my...ahem...and so many of them. Hey! Give a dude some space...I would like to meet you one at a time!
So I found a pair of human legs to hide in, and started to bark and grump at them all. Suddenly growlmy was there, and she put on my leash and helped me out of another part of that same park, where Riley and I were able to play privately. It was nice of the park people to make that extra area for doggies like Riley and I who were not interested to romp with such a large crowd.

Him and I had fun together. We sniffed, romped and barked. At other dogs coming into the park or leaving it. We ran around and did some of our own chasing and doggy games. We shared some water together, too...but Riley found my doggy portable water bottle too small for him! But he did get his tongue wet! At least it was not hot, or bad weather!
Growlmy and Riley's dad tried to take pictures of us...hah-hah! We just were not about sitting still/posing...after all this was a play date, not a photo shoot!
Finally, as it was getting late, Riley and his dad went back to his man-cave car, and I went into the van to go home again. We both enjoyed meeting a fellow dogster, and hope to do it again, sometime in the future!

I think that was one of the highlights of my trip!

Today, we came back to my own den. This trip went much smoother, and the customs dude was very furendly. He did not ask for my papers!
He asked what my breed was, and if I was furendly! Duh! Don't they see my widemouthed doggy grins?
And my lolling tongue, ready to be Sir Lick A lot?!


PS Will post pics soon...

Sounds mighty exciting, dude.

Glad you're back!

I checked out Riley's page, and I
gotta admit it looked kinda weird
seeing you on someone else's page!
I kept saying, *Is that you on there
MJF? What are you doing on the wrong

We think it's pretty cool that you
met a fellow dogster in person!
