My Mom surprised me last Saturday when she said we were going on VACA! I wasn't sure what she meant and I kinds knew something was up when Mom was getting things in order. Then Saturday morning, Mom said I should get ready. OK, I knew what that meant, I put my leash, collar and vest together for the car. We packed the car pretty full and we were off! Stopped at Mickey D's for something and off we went! We drove quite a long way - at least it felt like that and we stopped so I could pee. People were either happy to see me or they were afraid. We drove through Georgia and stopped in South Carolina for the night. We went to Ruby Tuesday for dinner, it was very good. Going out is always yummy. We went back to the place we stayed the night.
When we woke the next morning, we went to a place called Waffle House. This was another good place. When we were close to our destination, there was a sign on the road, it didn't say watch for Lions, Tigers but BEARS! OH MY!!:) We drove for a few more hours and arrived at our destination - New Bern, North Carolina. We took it easy the rest of the day and looked out at the pond. There are a lot of ducks and geese. The next morning, we saw all the squirrels. It was a good thing we had gotten some bread the night before for them and there was also a really good thing in the store - there were Raspberry Oreos! These are good - not to mention our favorite being back in stores on Friday. The official date was Monday, but you can't keep a good thing down! HOSTESS We got a box of each and a bag of each. powdered sugar Donettes, chocolate Donettes, cupcakes and the most missed, Twinkies! My Mom really missed those powdered sugar Donnettes. We can't wait for the Ho Ho's!
The week was a good week, nice and quiet, just the sound of the geese honking, the squirrels clicking and the ducks with their babies. The time ended too quickly and we needed to leave - it was only one (1) week, but it was a good one! On the way home, we got some Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
I am a tired Red Dog. I missed Rose and she G R E W almost didn't recognize her! There was NO WiFi. Mom was told this place would have it but I guess it wouldn't have been a true vacation with the Internet.
Hope Summer is going well for all our furiends!
I'd have fun barking at those ducks and squirrels!
