I know this is a little late in being posted but I'm sure you won't be surprised to read that we've been taking our time to enjoy being a pack again (that and the humans were sick...silly humans).
We came back together on February 13th in California. Rainy was very nervous but I always knew she'd come back. My nose's catalog of people is awesome so I don't forget anyone. I checked out our new car, decided the back seat would be just perfect, and was ready to go. We went for a walk first, though...even though I really wanted to go for a ride in the car. Rainy said there would be plenty of that but I couldn't really be ready for just how much.
Rainy had Santiago hold my leash so we could get acquainted. We were fast friends and are becoming very close (but more on that later). We went to a lot of places on that day. Rainy and Santiago were packing up the car with what smelled like Rainy's old stuff and we visited a few old friends. After a good night of sleep it was CAR TIME!
The plan was to go from the San Francisco Bay Area to Colorado with a stop in Vegas to see my friend Honey (and so the humans could see Rainy's aunt). That would mean two rather long days of driving. Even though I was excited, I did a good job settling into my spot in the back seat, popping up only occasionally to look out the front window and nose the humans. That first day gave us a chance to enjoy, and say goodbye to, the California weather.
After a nice long walk with Honey and the Goldies (Chevy and Dually) we settled in for some sleep.
Day 2 in the car was a preview of Colorado weather to come. When we got into the mountains it started snowing and the roads were a little less friendly. On clearer days, though, the view can be lovely.
We arrived home just in time for some late-winter snow.
I love running around in the snow but it really makes me tired!
So I've been spending the last couple weeks settling in, walking (a lot), and developing a relationship with Jericho (which we'll talk about in detail later). We just wanted to make sure to let you know that we are home safe, settling in, and preparing to share a ton of information and our experiences with you all.
