I just returned from my first vacation. I went to Mystic Connecticut with my mom and grandma. We left on Sunday August 5 and returned late today, Tuesday, August 7. I had such a wonderful time. There were all kinds of interesting things to sniff and explore. When we went to Mystic Seaport there was a small beach I wasn't crazy about the sand. It felt funny on my feet, it was all squishy. A lot of the stores had water bowls set up by the door so I could have a drink and many of the shopkeepers gave me yummy treats. I met so many nice people that with my mom's permission petted me and played with me. I think every kid in Mystic petted me. The kids were so cute, they seemed more interested in me than the historical displays at Mystic Seaport.
I got to stay in my first ever motel room. There were two double beds and I found that if I got enough momentum I could jump from bed to bed without touching the floor! That was so cool! I did one bad thing though. My grandma left her hearing aid on the bed and walked away. I found it and it looked like a yummy treat. I bit into it and it started whistling. I didn't like that and barked at it. Then mommy took it away from me. She told me "no" but neither her or grandma yelled at me. Grandma admitted she was wrong for leaving it where I could get it. I love my grandma. She is not a real dog-person like my mommy but she was very tolerant of me and didn't even get mad when I walked across her while she was lying on the bed. She wouldn't let me lick her feet though.
Most of the stores let me go inside either on the leash or with mommy holding me. I even got to go to an outside restaurant with mommy and grandma. The waitress lady brought me a big pan of water with ice it was so good. I was on my best behavior while they ate their dinner, they were having fish which isn't my favorite. Mommy gave me some french fries - I liked them!
It was a long drive from our home in Long Island to Connecticut. Mommy gave me bathroom breaks and I slept the whole way. I have a booster seat which attaches to the car seat and to my collar but allows me enough movement to lie down. I just curled up like a good girl and slept. Mommy and grandma joked that they didn't even know there was a dog in the car. I was glad to get home and see all the familiar things that I am use to. As soon as I walked in the door I started teasing my cat sister, Friday. She had 3 days of peace and I had a lot of teasing to catch up on. Funny she didn't act like she was glad to see me.
I can't wait to go on vacation again. Mommy posted some pictures of me and of Mystic Seaport in my Dogster Plus pages. Check them out. Mommy didn't have Internet access while we were away and when she returned she had 1,000 e-mails mostly from Dogster. There would have been a lot more but that is the maximum her AOL account allows. Mommy has been trying to catch up with our groups and has some pawmail to answer but she wanted to post this for me so our Dogster pals would know what a pawsome time we had.
