I’ve always been excited about going away, getting in the car and driving away. I’ve never been excited about the sight of the suitcases that my parents place on the floors and beds – though the ones sitting up in the attic don’t phase me in the least. But recently my parents started packing suitcases and also carrying my bed to the door. Carrying my bed to the door trumped the depression I feel when I see suitcases out and about. With my bed, I know it’s going to be a good time.

This time my parents made me crazy keeping me waiting. They had my bed at the front door, but we weren’t going into the car. I had to wait and wait and wait until they were ready. They Mom carried my bed into the car, as you can see, but wouldn’t let me sit in the car with the bed. “Come out, Joey,” Dad said.

Was there a point to my having to come out of the car, when my bed was inside the car?

Eventually my parents let me back into the car with my bed.

And that began my overnight(s) adventure at the home of my Labrador Retriever friend Jenny, with her big family.

I’m still a bit confused about the part where my parents walked outside our friends’ home onto their porch and didn’t let me follow; and then stood outside our friends’ front door and  faced me, inside the home, my not understanding why the front door was closing little by little on me, and said “Bye, Joey. We love you. We’ll see you soon” and then the front door closed completely between them and me.  But that’s okay.

And just like my parents do in their home, in the evenings my friends placed my bed at the foot of their bed, and how well I slept.

Occasionally during the day I slept on my friend Jenny’s bed and made her sleep on the sofa. But that’s okay. Those are the rules!

  1. Hi Joey!
    I think about you but haven’t been able to get on the computer! I see by this picture you were on another outing! Boy, you sure get to go on a lot of outings, Joey! Lucky you! I just wanted to check in and say hello (err….ruff, ruff!) and see how life’s going for you. I am up and running again these days! :-) Finally!
    Your Pal,
    DJ

    • Hi DJ!

      Boy, if you were here we could take a nice run, then, couldn’t we! Glad to know you’re back. Are you really running? Like before? Tell me about it! If you saw from the earlier post and picture, I was really really really sick, but i hardly remember that. If my mom hadn’t taken a photo of me and I hadn’t written about it I probably wouldn’t have remembered it at all. I’m a lot better now. But weird things going on now about my food. Maybe I’ll save this for a new post that I am planning about visiting my animal nutritionist. Hmmm… Not lots of outings, just the one you see in the photo. But I did get to spend a few days with my friend, Genny. We also spent the afternoon together a few days ago, but over at my house. She’s a lot younger than I am, if you know what I’m saying.

      Since I got sick and lost a lot of weight and then gained it back, I have done only a little bit of running, though when it was warm out my Mom tried to do a few blocks at a time with me. I’m not sure who gave out first, her or me, but in the end it was always her saying “Come on Joey. You can do it!! Good boy.. Joey’s running!”

      I’ll write more too… Please tell me about your running!!! It’s great to hear from you, buddy! I have lots to tell you!

      Your pal,
      Joey
