Stumpy has left the Northeast coast in search of warmer weather. She's now riding in a 1997 Ford E150 conversion van; soon to be a customized camper van.
I'm not sure she approves
In Buffalo, NY we stayed with friends who had a young, rescued terrier that was having some trouble adjusting to life in the city. Stumpy spent a couple of days helping him with his manners and confidence.
At last report he was doing well and enjoying his new life.
We're really proud of Joe. But, we're especially proud of Ellen and Bill, the people that love Joe. They have gone the extra mile to make sure that Joe can lead a fearless, happy and fulfilling life. Stumpy and I are looking forward to another visit with them.
In Indiana, we met up with Ivy, a young, high energy malinois girl.
Ivy and Stumpy enjoyed each others company from Indiana to New Mexico

. She full-times in a vintage trailer with Cricket, a poodle, and their chauffeur, Diane.
We took about 3 and a half weeks to travel cross country. Now, we're here in Nevada with Kuzzin Fenway
And there's a new trouble maker in town.
Teddy Ballgame came to live with Fenway about a month ago. Best guess: he's year old Catahoula mix. He was found, skinny and starving, on the streets in Arizona. Stumpy's favorite boy brought him home and now Stumpy and I are Kuzzin-sitting.
As cute and sweet as Teddy is, Stumpy doesn't seem very happy with the new addition to the family. Teddy doesn't seem to understand that he is supposed to defer to the Queen of Everything's wants and desires.
Here's the motley crew. Teddy's pretending he's a good boy
They have a few more days to get to know each other. then Stumpy and I are movin' on down the road.
