The Bunny Runway

Mom felt really bad that it was so hard to play bunny on our slick new floors. When I slid and scrambled around chasing the bunny, it hurt my legs and I'd start to limp. So she bought me some carpet runners to stretch from our t.v. room, where we spend a lot of time, out into the kitchen. Now she can throw the bunny down the "runway" and I can chase it without sprawling all over the floor like Thumper on the ice. It's my favorite thing to do, even more than going for a walk, so I'm really happy to play bunny again.

In three weeks we leave for Paris. Today Mom spent a lot of time deciding what to bring along. I've been practicing staying in my airplane carrier and I do pretty well - I don't complain or scratch or try to get out, but I can't really relax in there. I just keep waiting for the time when Mom unzips the door. I really think the airlines are unreasonable to make us dogs sit under the seat the whole way, when they allow babies and little kids to wail and scream and annoy everyone. If I could sit beside my mom I'd be a really well-behaved, quiet gentleman, and I wouldn't kick the back of the seat in front of me, either.

I have my doggie passport ready to go with my health certificate, and my new microchip (European approved) has been implanted. Now that I have two - American-style and French, I can be identified on two continents. I also have a new id tag with my Paris address and phone number on it, but I don't plan on getting lost. I'm a velcro dog - I stick pretty close to my mom and never let her out of my sight.

I think my book is going to be too long to put in my Dogster diary, so I'll probably do it as a blog and put a link to it on my Dogster page for anyone who's interested. Soon as I get over jet lag.

Wow Patch what a life you have! You have your own passport, get to go on an airplane and visit Paris!! We looked at your blog page and can't wait to read all about your experiences. Mom was in Paris in her "fun days" and says it is a very exciting city and they treat us 4-legged guys very well. I can see you now sitting at a cafe with your mom eating croissantes and people watching while cute french pups stroll by. Have a great trip! Teddy and Casey
