Arrival Story: That's a long story! Willie Mae is 10 and came from a breeder in Nashville, Tennessee. She and mom moved to Austin, TX. Then came Moses from the East Dallas Humane Society, and finally Abigail from Wee Rescue in Austin, Texas. We are one big happy family!
The paved walkway on Hermosa Beach is called The Strand. A lot of people walk and ride bikes there and it is right next to the beach except for a retaining wall that separates the beach and the walkway.
Today Mom took ALL of us to The Strand. Efurry one is really nice in this community. Some guys commented how fluffy Mosey is and how walking all three of us was like walking ONE BIG DOG! Hehe. (Next time we will take pics).
Well, that is probably the farthest we have ever walked. It was about ten blocks round trip, going down to the beach, walking a block or two, and then coming back home. It was a lot of work but we are walking much more nicely on the leash.
The only hard part is putting on the leash because Abigail wants to keep Willie away from Mom! Our balconies have side windows that open all the way down to the floor so we like to side next to it and look out the balcony at all the sunbathers out there. It sure is hot without AC, but we like it! Today Mom says she is going to get us a FAN!
Well, yesterday was a busy day! We were at the Chateau Marmutt getting bathed, and let's just say, they're no PLUSH PAD! My pompom doesn't look the same.
Then Mom took us for a LONG car ride to an apartment building. We went inside an elevator to get to our place. That was new fur us.
Mom has been taking us ALL on walks to go to the bathroom. That is something REALLY new fur all of us, to be honest, but we like the exercise.
Apawrently, a lot of places in the South Bay, including our apt., do not have air conditioning, and mom was a little worried about that since I am in full coat. Seems every fur leaves their windows open?...
This makes fur a VERY noisy living sitch since there are a LOT of dogs and a LOT of young pawty people living in this building! If ya can't BEAT 'em, JOIN 'em, I always say! We have been barking back and forth wif all of our neighbors and there's a PAWTY going on. Hehe!
To help work off our nervous energy, Mom has been taking us fur LONG walks, which we like. Willie kinda has a hard time with her heart. We love seeing other pups and peeps and when we see them we give them a SHOUT OUT.
Then mom starts SHRIEKING "Calm and Submissive! Calm and Submissive!" We don't know what that means, but it stresses her out!
Well, Wednesday, was positively exhausting. We got up at 3 a.m. to do some last minute cleaning and packing (which is 1 a.m. here) to make a 5 a.m. cab ride to the 7 a.m. flight. With the US and the suitcases, mom had 7 bags.
Thank goodness for the FF upgrade to 1st class! Abigail started whining so Mom snuck her under the blanket and the flight attendant actually BUSTED them. She said, "Is that your dog under the blanket?" HAHA! Abigail spent the rest of the trip in the bag. Wednesday nite I went to West Hollywood to meet Lisa for sushi and then came back to go to BED!
Yesterday Mom woke up early and was in the mood for dim sum and found a place with good reviews. Turns out it was 27 miles away! She drove to Monterey Park with a GPS that got her lost about half a dozen times on an empty tank of gas! One time in the 'hood.
Next on the agenda: Mom went to the Beverly Center to a boutique called DOGto pick up some gifts for us and our friends for a bark~becue on Sunday~very cool.
Then Mom got a mani pedi across the street and the ladies who worked there were all really nice. She also met a very kind girl who looked like Lucy Liu who just graduated from anesthesiology residency and said she could tell we weren't from around here. She gave us her number for a play date with her and her yorkie and tzu.
I dunno why she knew right away we were from out of town? Must've been our southern accent. Mom said yes, it was our first day in town. The girl said she came out here 4 years ago all by herself for residency from Colorado and didn't know anybody and that it was a hard town to get to know people if you weren't in "the business." She didn't know that Abigail now considers herself "in the business."
Then this morning Mom turned on the computer and the WEIRDEST thing happened. The Internet Explorer opened right up to our MLS listing, which we had never seen before! (Is our computer haunted)? How bittersweet that it looks so great now that we're gone. Hey, we wanna live there!
