It has been awhile since I had last updated my blog. Well about ten months to be exact. You have to remember I am a dog (a Kooikerhondje to be exact) and I am busy doing dog things.
What? You are right. The above is not really a good excuse. Like when your dog eats your slippers, digs in your garden, and once a year poops on your extremely expensive carpet… it really is not a good excuse.
Quite a lot!
First, in April/May we drove cross the entire US.
We saw Mount Rushmore, roamed the high plains of the West, participated in a wedding, and enjoyed lying on our huge bed in the car. For me it was my second round-trip cross-country, for Toni it was his first.
Being his first road trip meant that Toni was bound to get into trouble. Lots of trouble. Just to give you an idea… Toni discovered the joys of rolling in deer dung. The owners had eight hours left in the car trip with a stinky dog. You think they had it rough. I had to sleep next to it. GROSS!
This summer we went to our first meeting of the Kooikerhondje Club of the United States. Come to find out, they think I am the oldest Kooiker in the US. If I am, that makes me a very cool dog indeed. If I am not, well I am still cool!
Toni met his potential girlfriend while at the club meeting.
We have made other trips and hikes all across New England as we introduce Toni to the rest of the United States. Toni went on his first camping trip to Mt. Mansfield in Vermont. He had such a ball!
We both had a great time visiting Erin and her wonderful family outside of Boston. They wanted to meet us to see if a Kooikerhondje would be a great fit for them and their family. No surprise as they were definitely happy with the both of us! We cannot wait until they get their puppy!
So what’s next?
Hopefully more fun, adventure, and food!
