We made it to Brigham City, Utah today. Another 620 miles clicked off of the road trip. We’ll be home soon. Our trip has been amazing and we both have loved every minute even if we spent it in the car.
Wyoming hasn’t changed since I lived there so many years ago. It’s still windy. I-80 had a ton of road construction, but we were able to jet across the state at 80 mph for most of the time.
The babies were meant to be models. The sunset wasn’t much, but they gave me the best pose they could.
We made it to Ogallala, Nebraska on Wednesday. Gained another hour by the clock but my body is still on central time zone. The Internet is slow as molasses, I think it is owned and operated by the Pony Express.
Miles and mils of corn fields in Iowa.
The puppies are riding really well. They are learning to walk on leash, pee and poop on leash.
And our journey continues with a pair of wild and crazy fluff balls. It was very sad to leave Lois and Mark and I know they will miss Glory and Sage.
The two little travelers were amazing on the road. We made it as far as Dalton, Georgia and they are wired for sound. Although I just watched Sage jump up on the bed and nestle in amongst the pillows. It’s priceless.
Sage found his way up to the pillows all by himself, Karen helped Glory up there.
Before I go any further, I have to do a huge shout out to our most fabulous vet clinic (I love and appreciate them more than words will ever express), our vet, the emergency vet clinic and especially Jenny. Once again, they have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
Slinky is still weak, but she is holding her own.
Today is a play day. We are going to eat, walk and take pictures.
Loving Louisiana. It’s a tad bit humid, but oh so beautiful. We got stuck in Baton Rouge travel but forged on. We’ve planted ourselves just outside the French Quarter in New Orleans and to say the least, we are quite excited about our day of play.
Somedays I have to wonder what we were thinking when we decided to get Timber a surprise. We left Arizona yesterday morning. Drove through New Mexico, which was pretty and then got stuck in some continuos vortex in Texas.
El Paso was huge so we thought we would get breakfast and lunch beyond that. Ummm, nope. Apparently a tornado had wiped out a bunch of power lines and for miles and miles the power was out in towns and rest areas. That also meant no gas for 100s of miles.
Finally stopped in a little town, Ft. Stockton, grabbed some dinner and gas. We also lost two hours with time changes landing us in San Antonio somewhere around midnight.
Our travels today took us into Arizona. Despite the blistering heat, I find the desert enchanting.
We visited with some dear friends in Tucson. We have received some of our bestest greyhounds from them. Slinky and Jillian, Bentley, Flo, Moose, Mickey, Cinderella, Flocko, Minnie and Skirvee. It was an awesome visit and I am so glad we could swing down and say hi.
We did stop in at the greyhound kennel and meet a few new dogs. I fell in love with several and whispered in one sweet girlies ear that perhaps she should think about coming to Oregon when she retired.
A few good thoughts are in order for our little Slinky girl. She got pretty stressed with the heat and the transport up to the boarding kennel.
She is resting comfortably at the e-vet tonight, but it is so hard to be so far away from her.
I can’t even begin to say how appreciative I am of our vet tech that is housesitting and drove out to get her and our vets that rallied to take care of her.
I think she just needs a little power of the paw to get her through the rough patches until we get back home.
