Bailey's Tails From The Bark Side

The Saga of the Suitcase Dogs!

Two weeks ago, my mom brought suitcases down from the attic. I know what that means! It means that her and dad are leaving on vacation and I would be going to stay at my furless sister's house. I enjoy being there with her and her dog Bonnie but this time I decided I wanted to go on vacation too!

I formed a plan! I would sneak into Mom and Dad's suitcase and then end up in their vacation spot with them. I did not want to go alone so I posted a sign up sheet at PDPC and 9 other dogs signed up to go on this adventure with me! We did not know where we were going but judging by the clothes in the suitcase, it was going to be someplace warm!

So into the suitcase we went! Charlie, Buttercup, Star, Walker, Roscoe, George, Amazing Grace, Hershey, Riley and I were very quiet and even though there were some comments about how heavy this suitcase was, nobody caught on!

When Mom opened the suitcase she was so surprised!


We were suprprised too! We were in St. Thomas, USVI!

We all had a great time in St. Thomas! We went to the pool and the beach and on the tram ride at Paradise Point. We went on sailboats, took the ferry to St. John and did some snorkeling! It was a fun trip!

Met new friends

When the two weeks were up we jumped back into the suitcase to go home. We were supposed to fly from St. Thomas to Miami to Chicago and then end up in Bloomington, Illinois. Unfortunately the luggage was not loaded on the last plane and we were left overnight in O'Hare Airport! Lucky for us there are lots of good places to eat at O'Hare!

We ate at Rick Bayless's Tortas Frontera, Wolfgang Puck's, Macaroni Grill, Pizzeria Uno. Berghoff Cafe and Wicker Park Sushi Bar. We bought snacks at Nuts On Clark and Garrett's Popcorn! We shopped for souvenirs and did some sightseeing.

The next day we were put on the plane for Bloomington and delivered to my house and all the dogs were sent safely home! What a fun trip we had! We will have to do this again! I hear the pawrents are going away again in July! Hmmmmm.........

Note from the typist! This story is fictional and no dogs were harmed, lost or mistreated!

Note from Bailey! It is so true and we are going to do it again! I already have some pals signed up for July!
