When the days start to get warmer and shorter, mommy and daddy load up the car and we go on a two-sleep road trip. I know the drill now--or I thought I did. We drive and drive with the ocean on daddy's side of the car, and we stop here and there fur eating and pooping and walking around. Late in the day we stop at a place where mommy and daddy UNload the car, but it isn't our house. It's the place with a big meadow and strange birds, and inside there's a BIG doggie biscuit waiting fur me!

Usually we go hiking around by the ocean befure bed time. Then the next day we go look at a lot of flowers and then hike around by the ocean in a different place. But this time as soon as the car was empty the furst evening, we all got back in and drove some more. We got out at a train station, but there was no one there. We just sniffed around some and then went back to the sleeping place that isn't our house.

The next day we got up furry early and went back to the train station. This time there were lots of people there, and a couple of doggies, too! Mommy and daddy got breakfast and then we all went into a shop where daddy bought a new hat, and then we got on the train! This was a different kind of train than I've ever ridden. We sat inside, on big soft seats! A lady came by and took our picture. A man came by and sang to us! We rode fur a LONG time, through a forest and ovfur bridges. Lots of people gave me chin scritchies and played with my ears. (Hoomans always like to play with my ears fur some reason.) Winkie pretty much slept through the whole thing. Put Winkie inside a moving vehicle, he's gonna curl up and sleep, BOL!!!

Then the train stopped and we got off and I could smell MEATZ™ burning, but we didn't get any. We just walked around a little and pooped and said Woof to the other doggies and then we got back on again. Only this time instead of riding inside on the comfy seats, we rode in an open car where we all had to stand up. (Well, Winkie curled up and slept on the floor, but the rest of us stood up!) It was warm and you could smell the trees and something mommy called "steam." The man sang to us some more and one of the other doggies rode with us, too. When the train stopped again, we were back where we had started. I thought that was LOTS of fun! Mommy will be posting some pictures on my page soon!

The next day we took mommy shopping, and then we started fur home. We went a different way, not by the ocean. It doesn't take as long. We were all tired when we got home, though.

Today we got up all early again, and mommy gave us a quick brushing, and then we went to spend the day at the Wag Hotel! We played and made new furiends and had a great time! Mommy and daddy were furry tired when they FINALLY picked us up, so we're all going to bed early!

Thanks, pals! They were burning hamburgers and tri-tip and turkey! They had ice cream, too and lots of other good stuff. All we got was ice water. But mommy and daddy didn't eat either, so it wasn't THAT bad.

Mommy's THIS CLOSE to getting some photos up, I promise.

Zaidie, I don't even know what to say. VEGAN?????!!!!!
