I’m a Travelling Dog!

Mommy said we did not have internet for a long time so I couldn’t send out my blog!  I wrote it anyway so I will get caught up very soon! 

Mommy says I can’t call the New House, the New House anymore.  She says it is just Our House.  I’m going to call it the House-that-comes-with-us-in-the-Car, because that is what it does!  It is really weird to have your house come with you in your car but sometimes it’s good.  My bed and my dish are right there with me!  I can lay right in my bed, in my House-that-comes-with-us-in-the-Car, and look at my Mommy.  I like that.  Auntie Debbie says that now I am a Travelling Dog!  She rubs my head when she says that so I guess it’s a good thing!

This is me in my little bed! I like to take naps when we are travelling

Yesterday, we went to Little Rock, Arkansas.  Mommy said that a President used to live here!  I did not think that was interesting.  My friend, Haley’s, mom came here once though, so I guess that is interesting.  I did find a little rock and I did pee on it so I have left my mark on Arkansas!  We did not meet anyone interesting or any other dogs at that stopping place.  This morning we drove and drove and drove.  I decided to take a nap because it was boring to be a Travelling Dog, even if I get my ears rubbed!  Then Mommy stopped at a New Place!  It had so many trees!  I sniffed and sniffed all of the trees.  I found a big stick and I carried it all around with me.  It was so much fun!   Auntie Debbie took lots of pictures of me with my stick but she couldn’t get them from her Camera to Mommy’s Computer!

 

After we went to Arkansas, we went to Oklahoma!  We drove and drove and drove! The roads are kind of bumpy in Oklahoma.  Even bumpier than they are in Arkansas!  Then we drove on the bumpiest road ever!  Everything in the House-that-comes-with-us-in-the-Car was shaking really hard, even me!  I thought that Our House would shake apart!  Mommy did not like driving on that road.  But then we stopped at a really nice place!  There was a dog there, named Cocoa!  He played with me.  I did not bite him because he was so gentle and nice.  His eyes were different colors.  Mommy said he might be from Australia, too!  After I played with Cocoa, I was tired so I went into the House-that-comes-with-us-in-the-Car and I went to sleep.

This is Mommy’s bed in the House that comes with us in the car! It’s very comfortable.

I Met A Big Dog!

Today’s Adventure was very Interesting.  I was in Nashville and Mommy’s friend, Stephanie came to where the New House was parked and we got to go ride in her car!  We went to her house and there was a Giant Dog there!  His name is Walter and he is the Biggest Dog I have ever seen!

Mommy said it was best to have a door between me and Walter!

Mommy made me wear my muzzle because she thought I would bite Walter.  I thought Walter was a cow because he was so Big so I tried to herd him around.  He is a puppy still and he could not stop trying to play with me.  I told him “No” and he did not listen so I tried to bite him.  Mommy said it’s a good thing I had my muzzle on because if Walter had bitten back it would have been a Bad Day!  After a little bit, Walter and I ran around and chased and played.  I was very tired when we got back in Stephanie’s car and went back to the New House.

Walter is Huge! I gave him What For!

Mommy let me stay in my crate (she bought me a special new crate for the New House) and she and Stephanie and Auntie Debbie went someplace called the Grand Ole Opry.  Mommy said that Country Music Stars go there to sing.  I don’t know why Mommy went there.  She can’t sing!

Mommy and Auntie Debbie went here but I stayed in my crate like a Good Dog!

I met a Nice Man at the New House place.  He is from Australia!  When Mommy told him that I am an Australian Cattle Dog, he gave me lots and lots of Cuddles!  He even gave me a little Koala to clip to my collar!  I love my little Koala but Mommy won’t let me chew on it!  Every time he walked past, the Nice Man would say “Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie” and give me cuddles!  I liked that!

This is me and my Koala that the Nice Man gave me!

Tonight, Mommy and Auntie Debbie did something Surprising!  They built a Fire, on PURPOSE!  I did not like that at all.  Fires are dangerous!  Mommy said that “it’s okay” but I did not believe her!  I stayed far away from the fire.  Mommy said that was being a Good Dog so I think I am right about the fire!

Tomorrow, we are going to drive and drive again!  We are going to a place called Little Rock.  I will find that little rock and I will pee on it!

My New House Moves!

Today, the Adventure started. I climbed up my stairs and got in my new little bed with my Blankie and Mommy put on my Harness.  I hate my Harness.  It hugs me and makes me Calm Down.  I don’t like to Calm Down!  But Mommy said I Have To Wear It because the New House is like going in a car.  Going in a car is fun because I get to go to School and I get to go the see my friend, Dr. Watson.  But Mommy did not tell the Truth!  The New House is not like going in a car!  I sit in a little bed and the Whole House goes with us in the car!  I Do Not Like It!  Today, I sat in my little bed, right behind Mommy while she was driving.  Auntie Debbie is coming with us in the New House that is not like a car.  She would pet my head when I told her I didn’t like it.  She told me I was being a Very Good Boy!  I did not feel like a Very Good Boy!  I felt like a Sad Dog!

I told Auntie Debbie that I did not like the New House!

I decided to take a Nap and maybe I would like the New House better.  When I woke up from my Nap, Mommy opened the door of the New House and we weren’t at Home!  There were all kinds of things to sniff and smell!  I sniffed where Other Dogs had been.  They left some messages and some of them have New Houses that move too!  I didn’t know that Other Dogs had Adventures! 

We got in the New House again and I got in my little bed and Auntie Debbie drove the New House for a little while.  I was unhappy so I held paws with Mommy for a while and then I felt better.

Holding paws with Mommy makes me feel better!

 Mommy has a New Bed in the New House.  It is softer than our old bed so I like it.  I snuggled with Mommy and slept all night long!  Since the New Bed is in the New House, maybe I will like it better now.  We got up Really Early in the morning, which made Auntie Debbie kind of mad!  She doesn’t like to get up early like me and Mommy do!

I am guarding the New House!

We are going to travel some more today and then we will stop someplace called Nashville for two days.  Mommy says we will visit her friend, Stephanie.  I met Stephanie before and I like her.  She has a little dog the same size as me.  I wonder if we will be friends.  I’m not always friendly to Other Dogs but Mommy says I have to Learn to Get Along.  I don’t know what that means but I guess I will figure it out!

The Adventure Begins!

This is Snickers again!  Mommy has been having a hard time and has been very busy so she is going to let me write the blog for the next Month!  It’s going to be a lot of work but I Can Do It!  So, here goes!

I had to think about what I was going to write!

Mommy came home the other day and said that the Adventure is starting!  Then she started to take all of the Stuff out of My House!

The other day, Mommy put me in my favorite crate and went away for a Very Long Time!  Then, she Finally came home!  She came inside and said, “Snickers, the Adventure is about to start.  I finally got our new house.  You wanna go see it?”  When Mommy says, “You wanna go?”  I always do!  So I jumped up and said “Yes, Yes, Yes!”.  Then she put my leash on and we went Outside and she took me to this Giant Box and it was Interesting!  It smelled like Other People and a little bit like Other Dogs.  It has a bed in it and it has a chair and a table and a door.  It is like a House, but it is Smaller than My House and it has wheels like a car.  Mommy was very excited but I didn’t think it was that exciting.  I wanted to go for a Walk!

This is the box that Mommy brought home!

A few days later, Mommy put me in my crate and Started Taking My Stuff out of My House!  She took out the big box that stands beside my Dish that she kept her dishes in.  She took out the Table that sits on the other side of my Dish!  She took a lot of boxes that I liked and I wanted to stay in My House!  She did not take My Dish.  I yelled really loud while she did this!  I Barked and Barked and Barked!  She worked All Day and took so many things out of My House!  Then, on another day, she had Strangers come and take more stuff out of My House!  I was Really Mad!  Every day, Mommy would let me sit in her lap and tell her how mad I was.  She would cuddle me and tell me that Everything Will Be Okay.  She kept saying that we will have an Adventure and that we will have fun Together in our New House.

I was not happy that Mommy took stuff out of the house!

Every day we would go to our New House and some of our Stuff would be there!  It was starting to smell like My House!  It even had some of my Treats in it!  Mommy let me carry one of my Toys over there and leave it there and I can play with it when I go to the New House.

I still have my favorite toy, Bluey, so I am going to be Okay!

Now, almost everything is gone from My House!  Lots of things are in the New House and it smells almost right!  I have a Bed that Mommy says is Just For Me!  My Dish and My Crate and My Blankie are still in My House but Mommy says that they are going to the New House in three days and then the Adventure will start! 

I don’t know what an Adventure is but I am Interested!
