February 13, 2018 – A new way of flying

Image
We got up early and my humans went to Tim Horton’s to have some breakfast. They offered me some food the day before but I did not want to eat and today they did not offer me anything. My mistress told me I couldn’t have anything as I have to go on the airplane again. NOT AGAIN!!!! I don’t like being in this box in the belly of this big metal bird, all by myself. But wait a minute; they did not bring my box. How am I supposed to fly with them without my box? Will they leave me behind and go without me? No, that can’t be true. My mistress told me she would take me with her to Ken’s house.
She gave me a little bite of a cake with my pills in it. I only get these pills when they put me on an airplane. Something is strange.
After breakfast my humans drove to the airport. My master and I waited for my mistress to come back to us as she returned the rental car. It only took a couple of minutes and she joined us. My humans went to the Check In. I don’t know what they are doing there but th…

February 12, 2018 – On the road to Toronto

Today my humans left early to pick up a rental car. Thank you Ozzy for your help!
After noon they came back home and packed everything in the car. I was scared they might leave me behind but my mistress put my blanket in the trunk so I knew she would take me.
Luckily they packed the day before so it did not take long to get ready. My mistress took me for a very short walk and I was so happy to be able to go with them that I started rolling in the snow. My mistress didn’t like that; she told me she does not want to have a wet dog in the car.

After saying Goodbye to Tim we left and drove towards Toronto. It was a very long drive. We only stopped for short breaks in New Liskeard, North Bay and somewhere in Toronto.
It was dark and late when we arrived in Toronto. My humans looked for a Motel 6 at our last stop and we went to the Motel right away, as they did not have many rooms left.

I was very tired but very excited. Long rides in the car aren’t bad as long as I can look out of the w…

February 5, 2018 – We are traveling again?

Image
My mistress told me we are going back to the desert again, back to Pahrump, Nevada. She said we would stay there until the beginning of April and than go back to Connaught, Canada.
She just booked the flights but we have to find a ride from here (Connaught) to Toronto. I am a service dog but I got my paper from the US and so the rules in Canada are different and I can't go on a flight here. Hopefully they will find a ride to Toronto.
As much as I love to play in the snow I love to go back into the desert. But this means the temperate will be about 50°C warmer than here. I have to loose my fur very quick to not be hot.

I am looking forward to meet everybody again at Ken’s house.
My humans want to discuss some ideas about the balloon software they are working on with Ken and they want to go to World Balloon Convention in San Diego. I am not allowed to go there and I don’t want to and they only stay for 1 day.

We will be back here in April they say, as the True North Brigade wil…

January 30, 2018 - That time of the year again

Image
It’s a long time since I updated my post. Not much happened though. We still have a lot of snow and I enjoy the snow very much, although it was very cold for a couple of days. My humans told me it was below -40°C sometimes. To me this number does not mean anything but it was cold, my paws were very cold.

What I really want to talk about today is, these two girls, Silver and Sally I living with in the house are in heat again. Remember last summer they were waiting for me outside the camper. Now we stay in the same house. I am in the basement with my humans and Tim and the girls are upstairs. No as they are in heat I have to stay in the basement all day long and I am not allowed to go outside with them. Tim does not want to have any puppies he says.

The girls try to come to me and keep looking for me. When I come upstairs the come to me and want me to sniff. This is a hard time. My mind is completely empty and all I can think of is the girls. I can’t eat, as I am not hungry.
Hope thi…
