Road Trip Selfies

Before we get started we need to remind you of this PSA:
A Public Service Note:
As of Jan 1, 2020, petcretary will no longer be making all the Birthday and Gotcha Day cards. She will make Memorial Cards, and maybe a few others. She is spending way too much time on them, (Sometimes up to 8 hours on a card), even though she loves making them...Sorry to have to put an end to those...if you want one and have not had one for your special furend/furbaby...send her a clear image with an unobtrusive background at least 4 weeks ahead, and she will get one out to you. Just leave a comment, with contact info.

Last week, petcretary loaded up the van, with all kinds of doggy and people things. Then she said goodbye to Pipo, Dalton and Pawppy...pawppy is going to be the 'live-in' pet sitter:)

Well, anypaws, she put me, Benji in my car harness and made me fastened into the front passenger seat with the seatbelt fastened to my harness. Oh, MY! Off we drove and Dalton was standing at the fence wondering why he was not in the car with me, I think.

We drove and drove and drove until after 887 miles I was just doing a lot of zzzzz's...

Then we stopped. Hey, this is not home?! It was a gas station...and I woofed at the peeps at the entrance, because I didn't know them. BOL!
I left some p-mails for other pups to know I had been there...
Then we got back in the van and drove for another long time, but this time it was only 87 miles...or so.

Then the van stopped, but we were not getting out...just waiting and waiting and waiting...there was a long lineup of vehicles, and not only one line but several. And big huge trucks too. I grr'd at some of them to tell them to stop blocking my view, Tee-Hee!
Finally we were at the front of that long lineup...and petcretary paid a lady some $$, she opened the gate and we went through. Phew, now we could get onto that big steel thing in front of us, *she* said it was The Blue Water Bridge.
At the other end of that bridge we had to wait again, and again the wait was LONG. And there were five of those long lines, and two for the big trucks. Sheesh we drove all that way to stand in long lines and just crawl? Whatever Petcretary, as long as we are together, its not that bad.

Then *she* opened the window and she started chatting with a young man, and she handed him some papers. He gave them back to her, and said, 'enjoy your visit'.

Then off we went again...for another 887 miles or so...though petcretary said that all of those so called miles of length was about 320 miles in reality...

When it was dark o'clock, we finally stopped at a house I did not ever see before.

Hey! I do know that smell! Its Eddie, my doggy cousin! OMD! We drove all that way and across a border to visit Eddie!

So now we have had some good romps in his yard, I got to visit the neighbor's big dog, and across the street another neighbor invited us there to visit with Gracie. The peeps had some nice wine, but all we got was some doggy treats, BOL!

The next day after  arriving, two other peeps came to stay with us...both my unfurbros! Wow-wee!
That was fun and we had some good 'snuggles, Hmmm...but I was not allowed in their bedroom...

I also had to wait for 887 hours in a pen while my Auntie and petcretary and the unfurbros went on another road trip by themselves to gather with cousins as they have done each November...kind of like a small reunion!

*She* says I have to be in a pen cause I like to chew on too many things, or make holes in pillows and such like. Anyways my pen was comfy with toys, a soft bed and a water bowl...I went to sleep, but when they came back I let them know it was not nice to not let me come along to see all the  rest of the cousins...well, um...nevfurmind...I made her take me out for a long  walk in the rain! That will teach her, BOL!

Well, so here are some selfies made on this trip. No Pipo or Dalton this week...sorry dudes, but we cannot make a selfie of you when you are there and we are here!

In the car, waiting and waiting and waiting...

'Do you think we can figure out how to escape??!

Lets also remember that Nov 11th is Remembrance Day, and Veterans Day, or Armistice day, depending where you live. It recalls the ending of WW11, on the 11th day on the 11th hour in the 11th month...in 1918.
A somber day of remembering and teaching those who were not there to never forget the price of the freedoms we have.

Halloween In November Selfies

Yup, we are having our Halloween selfies here today, the real ones, not flashbacks like the other day. But, well, we are late, because petcretary had to work that day. And on that day, even before she went to work, it was dark, dank and wet...then the snow started, and later the winds roared around here like a ghoulish monster.
But then the sun came out, and so we got to do our Halloween selfies a wee bit late. Pipo was disturbed from a lovely sun puddle...hence his looks of disdain and its like he is meowing, do you have to?
Dalton & Benji were in the sun, too, but it was actually so bright, petcretary had to pull down the shade to get a softer appearance.
Anyways, here we all are...but believe us we are NOT spooky! BOL/MOL!

















And we even got to make some cards for our furends:

We are in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted as always by The Kitties Blue...thanks for doing this each week!

Early Halloween For Shelters ~ A Blog Hop!

We are joining a blog hop to benefit some shelters:

Today we are happy to be pawticipating in the No Tricks, Just Treats for Shelters Blog Hop that is being sponsored by our furiends at LLB in Our Backyard. You can pawticipate too by publishing a Halloween post letting them know some way you plan to/or have helped a shelter or pet in need, and link up to the hop. They will be donating $1 per hop entry AND 50 cents  for each comment they receive on the 30th and 31st  Money raised this year will be split between Legacy Boxer Rescue, Marg's Animals and to our local Cat Rescue, HART(Humboldt Area Rescue Team) in Brian's name.

Pipo, and Dalton are the featured critters (*She* hasn't had time not the right weather to make any pics of Benji for this holiday...), as well as a fun pumpkin that petcretary and a team of co-workers put together a few years ago...some of you may remember it:)
Anypaws, 
We have donated a large cat tree and some other kitty things to the local chapter of the Humane society here. They have a large cage free zone for most of their adoptable kitties. 
We also donated a lot of food there when MJF became an angel, before we got Dalton & Benji. 

We also over the years have donated kitty and doggy things to our vet, he has a shelter for unadoptable kitties, and he works with other rescue groups as well, Dalton came from one of those (Benji came from the Humane society). Once we 'rescued' a large dog house, which was way too big for our dogs so we gave that to the ROAR group from where Dalton came.
They also have received a lot of other things from us as well as food items.

When there is an adoption event at our local pet shop, we try to visit there to support them as well. 





A Cute Kitty Pumpkin!

This is a special blog hop to benefit shelters, as noted at the top of this post.
