I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Hurry up, already!

Stumpy's packed and ready to go...

We're FINALLY leaving dirtville in the dust, this afternoon!

Stumpy is doing her best to make sure I don't leave her behind. I've promised her a swim the minute we arrive in Apple Town.

She's feeling a little anxious, as evidenced by her ears.

She won't look at me, in case I decide she can't come with and I send her to her kennel, instead.

Could you east coasters do somethng about the humidty before we get there? PLEEEEEEZE????

Hi Stumpy! Thanks so much for your NAMI Walks donation!

I wish we could do something about the humidity...it drives us nuts! We hope you have a great trip and that Stumpy enjoys herself.

Sandra said...

Hurrah! I look forward to the updates.

I tried to respond on your blog several times yesterday and nothing was clickable. I'm glad to see it's working for me today.

Stella said...

Safe and happy travels to you! Stella and I find its best when we get bored to sing to each other and that might be fun for your trip!

Can't wait to hear you have "arrived".

Cheers and hugs,

Jo and Stella

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Khyra, did you send your phone number? I'll check before we leave.

Norwood,we have the swimming hole all lined up and hope to check in there saturday morning!

Elyse, I wish it could have been more... Stumpy and I are both going to love being back home with family, lakes, beaches, oceans and trees!

Sandra, hopefully I will be able to find some ingternet access. It didn't happen last year.

Stella and Jo, Stumpy has requested that I don't sing, under any circumstances!

Sallie, I won't be bringing cool weather from dirtville! maybe I can pick some up on the way!

Thanks, MM! Hopefully we'll have plenty of adventures that we will want to share!

Tula, the treats are packed! You have about 4 days to get that humidity under control!

Mayzie, the funny thing is she about never gets left behind!

Pat, It's not all fun, but it sure will be good to see my family!

Heelers, 55 sounds awesome! ARGH! This blog! Some people can read it some people can't. Some people can comment some people can't. I'm extremely irked!

OP Pack, we're so late leaving that we are driving straight through to Mass. the way back to dirtville will be more liesurely. DOG knows we won't be in any hurry to get back here, so Hopefully we can give you a shout, then!

Wyatt said...

Are you THERE yet????
The humidity here has gotten better, not solved yet, over the past few days. We are down to reasonable summer temps. Even wore long pants for a bit. Still hate wearing shoes.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Wyatt, we are headed to the land of Norwood, Tula, Miss Kylie and ummmm... oh Mango and Dexter, to name a few.

Thundering herd, are you sure you can't? This Kansas weather/humidity is brutal!

Sanne, I wish you could! We'd love the company!

Dogsmom, we're driving, not flying. should arrive this weekend.
