Something MAJOR happened. I went on something waaaaaaay bigger than an adventure. I went on a JOURNEY!
It all started on Saturday. Mom grabbed the luggage out of the closet and started putting clothes and stuffs in it. I was getting really nervous thinking she and Dad were leaving me. BUT THEN! She grabbed the small, rolling suitcase and guess what she did? She put MY stuff in it! Lots of things ran through my head: Was I being kicked out? Where are my things going? Am I going with Mom and Dad somewhere?
Sunday morning came and Mom and Dad started loading the car. My kennel! My kennel was in the car!
MOM: “Get your harness on, Noodle. We’re going for a HUGE adventure!”
We had to go down to South FL where my Grandma (Mom’s mom) lives.
I was SO excited to get into the car:
Little did I know, Mom drugged me! I fought it, though. I didn’t really fall asleep until 3 hours into our 4 1/2 hour drive. Because of that, we had to stop at EVERY rest stop along the way. That’ll teach her to drug me!
When we finally got there, I was SO SO SO SO SO happy to see my grandma!
She’s the bestest!
I couldn’t stop running when we first arrived:
Mom and Dad took me for lots of walks while we were there. I read SO much pee-mail!
I saw a canal for the first time:
I was introduced to coconuts:
Dad almost fell in the water trying to get that for me! The pink “mass” you see on the side is actually a clump of snail eggs.
Hmmm, but what is a snail?
I found out later that evening:
That guy was on the sidewalk when I went outside and I nearly jumped out of my skin when I realized he was alive!
The next morning was Grandma’s procedure. She and Mom left the house at 6:30. Dad stayed with me until about 10 when he locked me in my kennel where I slept like a good boy for 4 hours. It was my first time ever being locked in my kennel.
When they got home, Mom took me for a real fun walk around the back of the building where there was pretty
We also saw some Muscovy Ducks. A mama and her 3 babies:
Later that evening, Dad’s youngest daughter came over to see me. Ok, fine. She came to see everyone. We played like crazy:
The next morning, it was time to head back.
Would you believe I got drugged AGAIN?! Mom tricked me with American Cheese and she did it a couple hours before we left. This time, I slept right away.
We did make a couple pit stops. One was in the Everglades. There a LOT of smells there!
The last hour of the ride was a bit rough for me. I was very relieved when we got home. After running around the yard making sure no other dogs came and pooped in it while I was gone, I slept for hours.
I hope I get to go on more journeys…just not anytime soon.
What was your longest trip?
