Ohboy!Ohboy!Ohboy! Mom is packing helmet bags, and getting bags of foodables together. This can only mean One Thing: ROADTRIP!!!! House With Wheels time again!
Okay. I just asked. And Mom says, yes, we are going to another car race. This time we are going to Pocatello, Idaho. It’s a two day event, so we’ll be gone for a few days – so multiple days in the house with wheels!!! I’ll make sure Mom takes the camera so we get lots of pictures! I can hardly wait!!!
So, I’ll have to make this a short post, because I need to snoopervise the packing, to make sure that she get The Right Toys and The Right Treats.
Oh, and one other thing. Mom says that I’d better start paying better attention to the dog trainer, and that she is going to have to spend more time “working” with me, because (and I quote) “there is a very good chance that you might be an older sister, and if you are an older sister, you’ll have to be A Good Example”.
I wonder what she means by that.
Note from Fi’s Mom: After watching Fi play with Molly in the park yesterday, I began thinking that Fiona would really benefit from having another dog that she could play with. If TaiChi were 10 years younger, there would be no issue, but TaiChi is too old to be a good playmate. On a whim, I contacted the breeder from whom we got Fiona, and much to my surprise, they are hoping that they will have a litter around Christmas time (assuming that the female goes into heat when expected, and everything goes as planned). As much as it pains me to admit it, TaiChi isn’t going to live forever, and even if she does, I think Fi (and TaiChi!) would be happier if she had someone that is going to be around her size, and robust enough to do some serious playing. So, yes, if Fi’s parents (it would be her actual mother and father – this is a very small, family breeder – not a large operation) have another litter, I think we will get another goldendoodle.
And while I know that in the grand scheme of things it would be better to rescue a dog, this isn’t the time/circumstances for us to do that right now. We’ll just keep supporting the shelters and rescue organizations.
