"Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't have acted so happy and healthy..."

If you'd told me two weeks ago that I'd feel comfortable leaving Petey to go on vacation, I'd have told you that was impossible.

And yet here I am, debating how many sweaters one really does need to pack for a trip to Dublin/England/Paris.

Before you start thinking of me as a cold-hearted, unfeeling wench, let me assure you that Petey is 100% better. He's playing with his toys, gobbling down his meals, knocking down shop assistants to get treats, and snoring blissfully through the night. My friend Dina is coming to stay with him and I've already warned her that there are several locations where he will stop in his tracks until he can go in and get a cookie. There's a freezer full of Frosty Paws and marrow bones.

He'll probably growl when I get back.

In the meantime, I get to reunite with Clive and Co. in Dublin and have the honor of meeting Eric Square Dog and Otis on their home turf. No doubt I will return with enough quantities of dog hair on my collection of black sweaters that Petey will feel I brought Clive and Eric home with me.

Will fill you in on all the juicy details when I return.

I was hoping you'd say you were also going to meet Angus and "the Font".

I wish I could meet Angus, "the font" and Wilf himself but I won't be in France long enough to travel down to "France profounde" and I don't think they're planning a trip to Paris!

Have a wonderful time. Don't forget to call and talk to Petey. That is our favorite part when the muzzer is out of town.

Oh Uncle Petey that's too bad. But I'm sure you'll be just hunky dory and Gail says she's looking forward to reading about the trip to Europe, even though it seems that Scotland has been left out.
Toodle pip!

What a beautiful dog. I am sure that you will miss him terribly but enjoy your trip in England. Feel free to check out my dog blog, as I share the same love for my rescued pit. Enjoy.

PETEY...I am a bit disturbed at your flat self. Did you really HAVE to announce to every dog in Paris that it wasn't a solar eclispe that day we toured the Eifel Tower? That it was my (Flacie's) bum???? So not funny....I can't help if Dr. Square Mom stuffed me a tad full back there....

Kisses to you, dear boy....

In my point of view You sure did put a new twist on something that Ive heard so much about. And How did you manage to make a blog that as smart as it is sleek?
