Road Trip - Day 5

After sleeping in late, we packed up the lair and headed out.

Mom had to get a last snap.

I got to get my last smell in as we were leaving Monte-Ray.

We stopped to take one last look and say good-bye.
  
Mom had us stop so I could look at and smell these big, awfully smelly things! They didn't really impress me.

Then I settled in to the long drive home. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz............

Road Trip - Day 4

Mom & Dad went to a place called "brunch." Doggies were not allowed, so I rested in the Monte Mobile. When they came to get me, they were pretty happy, but tired at the same time. So we went back to the new lair and rested for awhile. This was the first time I was allowed on the hooman bed with my pawrents. They spoiled me. 

 Then we went for another walk. Mom got a cool snap of my paw print.

There were no other doggies to play with, so Dad and I ran on the beach together. He couldn't keep up with me.

When it got dark outside, we went to watch a bright parade. There were no other furries for me to play with, so I got bored quickly. I let out a few complaints, so dad had to take me for short walks away from the crowds to settle me down. 

Meanwhile, back home...
Cinder kitty was being spoiled by mom's friend.

Road Trip - Day 3

After eating yummies in our new lair... We all went for a walk. Mom was excited to see how I would like this thing called "Sand" and "Ocean". She did not know if I had ever played in it. She said the day could not have been more boo-T-full! 

Dad and I checked out the surroundings. I liked all the new smells.

Finally I got to run loose. I loved how the sand felt between my toes, and wanted to just run and run. I didn't like the wet sand as much.

 Some hoomans told Mom and Dad to take me to another beach in Kar-Mel. They said at sunset a lot of other doggies come to play. So we headed to the other place and it was just like they said. Lots and lots of doggies. I just ran from dog to dog looking for a friend who would run with me. 

I met this handsome guy. We checked each other out...

Then the play was on. We ran, chased, jumped. He kept up with me and all of our hoomans were amazed at our play techniques.

After a full day of play, I snoozed in front of the warm box with my bone.

Road Trip - Part 2

When I woke the next morning, I was a bit confused on where I was and why my bed was so big. As soon as I saw mom & dad I was ok. Mom said we were going to a place called Monte-ray. Wow, named after ME! She explained that her and dad go there every year right after the big food day. And if I was a good doggie on this trip, I would be able to keep going with them. This sounds like fun!

We got into the Monte Mobile again and soon I was sniffing all kinds of new smells.

After a long nap, we got to where we were going. Mom and dad let me out to do my business and I got to meet a new little pup friend. She was unsure of the big doggie, but quickly was ready to play. I was more interested in all the new smells, including my new friend. 

When we got to the lair that we were going to stay in, I found a treat left for me and my hoomans. Mom & dad stay here all the time. They really like how the workers take care of the lair, and all their hooman guests. They said my late-sissy, Sasha, stayed here a couple times with them. They highly reccomend the Best Western Victorian Inn to stay at in Monterey. Mom said we all had to wait until later to partake and enjoy.

We went for a long walk. Mom kept disappearing into different rooms, while dad stayed behind to greet my fans. I was too busy watching for mom to greet everyone.

Mom and dad wanted to stand in front of a shiny tree, but I was more interested in all the interesting sights and smells. 

Then a really funny smell got my attention. Another animal... I had to investigate!
When what to my wondering eyes should appear, 
but a really big reindeer!

After a long day and busy night, I was ready to rest on my own bed and look oh so handsome in front of the fire while mom and dad watched the big moving box.

Rest in Peace Sweet Kasha

We are interrupting our Road Trip posts to share the sad news of the passing of Kasha the Dane. Mom met Kasha's mom through the blog world and they walked through the end of my late-sissy, Sasha's life together. Miss Kasha was about a year behind Sasha in age and they had a lot of the same issues. Mom's eyes have been leaking since she heard about Miss Kasha going to Rainbow Bridge today. 

Good Bye Miss Kasha - We will see you on the other side of the bridge.

Crazy Doggy Day

Mom is behind on her Monte updates. A couple weeks ago, we all woke up together and took a long walk. I got to play with another new friend for awhile. Then mom explained that she had a very busy day planned, so she had arranged for me to take a special trip in my own Limo to Redlands Rover Ranch.

When I got there, I was so excited to see so many friends to play with.I spent five hours with all my friends and played the entire time. Mom's friend Sue, tried to get me to take a nap, but NO WAY! I wanted to take advantage of this special time.

The limo took me home and I got to meet some more of mom's family, then I fell asleep for a little while. After the family left, Mom and Dad woke me up and said we were going on another trip, for a few days this time. So I climbed into the Monte Mobile and fell right to sleep. 

When I woke up, Mom said we were at a dog-friendly hotel, in a place called Ven-choo-ra. I didn't know where that was, but I was rather excited to get my own bed to sleep in. I didn't move all night.
I'm liking this adventure so far!
