A few years ago I got to ride along with Mom when she took a labrador up to a Littletown called Littleton, here in NH. I had a good time, EXCEPT, I made a mistake and hopped out of the car the minute she opened the door. Then, I was panicked and ran RIGHT in front of a car. Fortunately, the person driving the car was the labrador lady, so she saw me hop out of Mom's car and didn't hit me!
I got a BIG lecture from both Julie and Mom (Julie rode along with Mom), and I was pretty sure I would NEVER go to that little town again.
Today, Mom got out of work early and she took ME and we went for a ride. First we stopped at the big town we sometimes go shopping in, and Mom ran in the store and bought a whole bunch of stuff for the kennel. She also bought US a HUGE jar of animal crackers. We LOVE those things!!!
Anyway, when we started driving again, Mom went NORTH instead of back home. We drove and drove and drove and finally stopped at the very, very same restaurant where I hopped out of the car in the Littletown. For being such a little town, there was a TON of traffic going every which way. Since we were early, Mom went over to the Walmart. It was the biggest Walmart I have EVER, EVER seen!!!! And, a million people were visiting it, but Mom was lucky and got a parking place right up close and personal. Good thing cuz she only had 20 minutes to grab a few things. She grabbed, got a Buddy poppy for her and one for me on the way out and we headed back to the restaurant. Just as we pulled in, the lab lady pulled in beside us. Mom got out, BUT I STAYED SITTING IN MY SEAT LIKE THE PERFECT DOG I AM, BOL!!!
I didn't know it, but the lab lady is Lola's new Mom, imagine that!!! Anyway, of course they went inside and took their sweet time eating. Fortunately, Mom brought some tasty leftovers (in a doggy bag), and actually gave them to me. My, how things have changed in just a few short years, BOL!
Anyway, this time we were picking up a labrador. She hopped in the back seat and we drove along home. It had been very hot and humid, but apparently a HUGE thunderstorm came down here while we were gone so when we got back the fog was so thick you couldn't see ANYTHING! Good thing it was only the last few miles cuz it was hurting my eyes trying to see where Mom was going.
Mom said it was hurting HER eyes trying to see all the moose and deer that were deciding they needed to cross the highway in front of us. Fortunately, she saw them all, so we didn't hit any!
Now the labrador has gone back to HER home, and hopefully, in NINE WEEKS, she will have a nice, black lab puppy for ME to raise. I am naming him Quincy!!!!
