What a weekend!


What a weekend! Ollie and I had a great, but exhausting weekend. On Friday, Mom and Dad took off and we went to Pennsylvania to Bedford, where my mommies grandmother is from to do some Antiquing and stuff. We got to take my grandma and grandpa too. Ollie rode in the way back of the van and I sat on mom’s lap almost all the way. I got to see all kinds of things like horses and cows and lots of big trucks and some earth moving equipment on trailers. (I hate earth moving equipment!) From there, we went to Altoona and saw some huge trucks moving right behind each other on rails. Dad said those things were called trains. I didn’t like them very much since they were so loud and moved funny. After that we made the trip home. It was about 5 hours each way and I sat on mom’s lap the whole time. Mom said I gave her a headache since I’m not a very good traveler. I take offense to that! Just since I whine a lot and pace a lot and cry bloody murder if they put me in my seatbelt doesn’t mean that I’m a bad traveler. Sheezz!

Then on Saturday, Mom and Dad took us for a nice walk in town and there were lots of people around. Mom said it was because there was a festival there called the Waterfowl Festival. I don’t know what Waterfowl are or why they are celebrating them, but I thought they had a pretty day to do it! It was warm! Mom and Dad stayed home with us most of the day working in the garage so I got to chase plenty of squirrels and stay outside a lot which I love.

Then on Sunday we got back in the car and went to see my other grandma and grandpa on the farm. I love it there, but there are a lot of smells that scare me. Anyway, when I got there my Uncle LJ and Aunt Amy were there too and guess who? The baby! I love babies! I wanted to get a good peek at him, but my Uncle LJ said “no”. He somehow thinks I would hurt the baby! I would never do that, but that’s okay. He is the daddy, so it’s his job to protect him. We got to romp outside and run a bit before getting back in the car to head home.

Wow! What a weekend! I’m totally exhausted so I stayed home today instead of going to grandma and grandpa’s with Ollie and Dad this morning. Just give me my bed and my new toys and I’ll dream of next Monday when my birthday comes and I’m bound to get all the new toys I want! Hehehehehe!

I am an excellent traveler. I bark at motorcycles and trucks - they make too much noise!

Just got back from PA last week (not too far from Bedford!) and now must go AGAIN next week. *SIGH* Mom says I'm a very good traveler because I wear my seatbelt and just sleep the whole time. She says she doesn't even know I'm there! I hate to tell her it's because I get carsick and it's all I can do to maintain my dignity and not barf all over the back of her seat. I'm not looking forward to the lonnnnnnng car ride, but I do love being the only dog (my sisters stay home with the dog sitter!!!) at Grandma and Grandpa's! The whole squirrel-ridden yard is mine and mine alone! Woohoo!!!!

I would have gotten you something, but my Mom has been keeping me locked away in jail (some pet resort--Geesh!).
