We got some sad news confirmed at her appointment just before we left so I guess I'll forgive her. This time. Miss Ginger must have her paws full with not one but two tiny angels. The sad news is why we left for the vacation early so I guess there is a silver lining to this whole ordeal. I'm glad we can all heal together at one of our favorite places - THE BEACH!
Meanwhile, I present to you, yesterday's post... today!! Tada!!!
Greetings from the road!!
Yes, I sit like this for hours in the car. And, yes, it is comfortable! Well... it's comfy for me. Not as much for Cali who gets a lot less seat than I do.
Phoenix sits in her princess bed in the front by mom's feet. She sometimes gets carsick so she has a bunch of hospital chux under her bed. She might not need them anymore though! It's been awhile since she's been sick or needed "the pill." Mom even shares her special car blanket with her since the front gets so cold. (Such diva treatment!)
Sometimes she drives - must be a doxie thing.
See that teeny tiny driver in the front seat?After awhile we stopped to stretch our legs.
The smells were so interesting! There was lots of pee mail to read.
Too soon we were back on the road. Just after we crossed the border...
... we got to see this stunt plane practicing.
Now we're about an hour away from our home for the next week and a half! Cali's tail has been wagging for the last half hour. She LOVES the sea air!
After we arrived and got set up, we walked down to the beach. It was dark already and there were small groups of people up and down the beach with doggies and camp fires. We were so happy to finally be here! We checked the temperature of the water and sat down to just relax for awhile.
Until... on my least favorite things list... fireworks. Egad! As everyone but me will tell you, they were very quiet; maybe as loud as a car horn Cali says. But that was a scary car horn.
I concede it only happened three times and about 15 minutes apart but boy did that put a damper on my evening. I felt better after climbing onto papa's lap. A sixty pound Shepherd-mix in her papa's lap at the beach is not that weird if you ask me! But, even so, I hope Sarge doesn't read this.
We just finished breakfast and are about to go for a stroll! Our Airstream friends will arrive Friday so I'm anxious to check everything out so I can show them all the great smelly places! More to follow...
Oh yeah... hope you're all having fun at the pawty at my house! Puddles is housesitting and Wally & Stella told me that cases of beer have started to arrive. Save me one?
