Three sleeps ago, mommy and daddy both got up early. They started taking things out of the house and putting them into the car. Then mommy gave us our brushing early, right after breakfast! The last time this happened, we all got in the car and got out in a whole different place. Sure enough, it happened again. I woke up a couple of times, and we'd be in a new place. So I peed and poohed and sniffed around, and then we'd get back in the car again. Finally we stopped fur real. Mommy and daddy took my bed and other stuff inside, so I knew this was our new home. I sniffed doggie biscuits! Mommy saw them furst, and put them up high out of my reach, but that didn't stop me from trying! I climbed right up on the bed, then on a table with my paws on the wall! But the biscuits were up on a high window sill, and mommy said Down! So loud, even I could hear her! I didn't try that again. We went fur another ride and came back. Then mommy and daddy sat outside and had some treats, and Hersey and I got to have our treats, too. YUM!! Then it was night-night time. I decided to sleep on the big bed instead of my little one.

The next morning we went fur another car ride, and after mommy and daddy ate their breakfast we met a lot of other people and a couple of other doggies, and we climbed some big stairs into a funny long room with two rows of big soft seats. Mommy called it a "train." We chose our seats, and pretty soon the whole room started moving! So I stretched out on my seat and took a snooze.

When I woke up we got off the train and we were in a forest and someone was burning MEATZ™! It all smelled furrific, but we didn't get any. We walked around and sniffed and peed and pooped, and then we got back on the train. This time there was no roof, and I had to sleep on a hard floor. When I woke up again, we were back where we started. So we walked around letting mommy shop fur awhile. Then mommy and daddy had dinner at a place that smelled like fishies. Hershey and I didn't get our din-din until we got back to our bed-place. And then we went night-night again. This time I slept in my own bed.

The next morning I saw two big doggies through our back door! (The door was made of glass, you could see right through it!) Mommy said they were deer, not doggies, and I could NOT go say Woof! Hershey nevfur even saw them, BOL!!

We got brushed and mommy and daddy packed up the car again. Then we went into town. Mommy and daddy had breakfast, then mommy went shopping some more. Mommy LOVES to shop. This was a nice town, they let doggies go into the shops! So there were lots of new smells to discover.

Around lunchtime we all got back in the car. When I woke up again we were at a winery, and there were one, two, three, four, FIVE other doggies and lots of furry nice hoomans who kept giving me kissies. (Hoomans always want to give me kissies on my nosie!) Then we got back in the car again, and when I woke up we were home!

Today we all got up early again! Hershey and I got early brushings, and then we all got back in the car. But this time we only went as fur as the Wag Hotel. Hershey and I spent the whole day there, playing. Here's our Report Card:

"Hershey and Winkie had a great time in All Day Play! They stuck together most of the day, but made their own pals, too. Hershey really liked to share toys with Oscar the Havanese, while Winkie liked to wrestle with Sophie the poodle. They both enjoyed lounging about with Murphy and getting lots of TLC from staff!"

I wonder what tomorrow will bring!
