I got to be a hick doggy when Mom and Dad took me to Idaho last week!
The 12 drive there was horrible because I was made to lay down the whole time, but we stopped frequently enough and I got to trot it out, then it was back on the road.
When we arrived I met Daphne, a tiny Pomeranian! They were afraid that I would hurt her, so I didn't actually get to play with her until the next day. Then they learned that I was very gentle with her when we played. I ignored her the rest of the time, and she just followed me around trying to get me to play.
I got to run in the back yard of Dad's old house where he grew up, it's huge! It's much bigger than Mom's warehouse at work, and I didn't have to be on a leash. There was this thing called trampoline that I was allowed to get up on, lots of trees, and lots of new smells. I hunted worms, butterflies, and birds too, and I got so rowdy that I finally showed Mom my full speed run! She said I was going so fast that she was afraid I would run into something and break myself in two, but my brakes work just fine. I sure did take my own breath away though, I love running!
They took me for a car ride late one night into the country and I saw horses, cows and sheep, and was so interested in them that I accidentally konked my nose into the window in my excitment, oh well, they were all to busy munching on their grass to notice.
When Mom took me to her Mom's house, I met four new dogs. Roxie was my favorite, but her mom, Chloe, didn't like me playing with her, so I had to be careful. Mom was hoping that I would get to meet her first cat Tutter, but when we got there her Mom told her that he had gone missing after she and the neighbor had had a disagreement. Mom cried into my neck for a little while, but I told her it was okay by licking her eyes. She has me now, and that's all that matters! I'm much better than any old cat!
I'm still catching up on sleep, but I can't wait to go again!
Mom tells me that we might do quite a bit more travelling next year, since Dad's going into the Army. She says that next stop is North Carolina! I hope they have cows there...
