The Trip Back Home

Every Buddy

Our two weeks on da road jus' went by too fast.
Me wants to share a few more of my Michigan va-k-shun moments and den da long trip back home again.


I hads a chance to spend some time wit a REAL police dog.  His name is CHASE and he's da K-9 partner to my Uncle Jeff (jus' like I is a K-9 partner to Mom).
We gots to see one of Chase's training sessions.

 Chase even has his very own poo-lice car wit his name on it and everyting!
 Me tinks Chase is so handsome!

Here is Mom giving Chase a back rub.  Afters a while he was even tryin' to climb on hers lap.


We gots to go on a lot of walkies while we was on va-k-shun.  Dat was da best pawt cause dere was so much pee mail out dere for us to read.

Da house where we stayed made us feel so welcomed.  Dey even had a spot just for us so dat every buddy nose we was GUESTS and dey had to tweet us good.

After our long walkies, I always hads to go back in and rest my teenie weenie legs.  Dis sofa was jus' for me.  It matched my furs so well.

Den one mornin' Dad was loading da Hot Dog Taxi again and we was back on da road....jus' like da furst day of our va-k-shun.

We was on our ways back to Florida....and home!

Is we dere yet?

We went home a different way.  I was tinkin' for a while dat we was lost.

 Oh nose......we is gonna hit dat big mountin...HELP!!!!

It be so scary in dis hole in da mountin!

Hellooooooo's Virginia
(Hi Holly and all my Virginia furends)

What da heck!!!!!  Why would da truck be runnin' away?

Helloooooo North Carolina!
(Hi Madi and all my North Carolina Blogville buddies)

 Winston-Salem, here we comes!

Should be lots of good pee mail for us in Winston-Salem.
Looks like a purrty big place!

Oh.....Oh....Oh....dere is our sleepin' place for da night.

Feels so good to get out of our car seaties!

Holee-Molee.......Dis place even has dere very own Poopy Pouches.  Sweet!!!

Time to gets a good sleep now.
Good Nights!

Back of da road again!
Hellooooooooo Puddles
(and all my Blogville buddies in South Carolina)

UhOh....Looks like da Puddles has been here's wit her Pinto!

Hellooooo to all my Georgie Budds!

Finally backs in my home State of

Crossin' da big bridge goin' through Jacksonville Florida---Four more hours and 200 more miles to go and den we be back home again.  Whew!

Two weekies of bein' on va-k-shun and seeing all da stuffs I hasn't seen befores was so much fun, BUTT...................it be so nice to sleep in my own bed again.

News Flashy!
All da peeps we went to see AND da dogs we went to see in Michigan are all gettin' ready to go on dere va-k-shun now.............TO MY HOUSE.  Dey all be gettin' here dis week.  I has a feelin dey is gonna have my puter all tied up all da time soooooo if's ya'll don't hears from me for da next 3 weeks, comes and rescues me.......pleeze.  I needs my puter.  I do haves anudder postee for dis week, but it's a sadder postee so me will wait a couple days before posting da postee.

Looks like you had a very nice vacation. Was it much colder up in MI than Florida? It's either cold or very hot here in Iowa. I've never been on a big trip yet. Only small ones. I do like riding in the car. Have fun with your visitors.
