My Special Sunday Car Trip

What a lucky pup I was today. I got to go for a ride in Mom's car. Now you might think, what's so special about that? Well, usually I only get to go in the car for two things: either I am going to see "thevet" OR I am going to the groomer for a bath. But this time was diffurent. I usually get to go in the car with my seatbelt on. But this time Mom pulled one of the seats out of the second row of the babymobile (that's her nickname for the minivan). She put my crate in the empty spot.

Hmmmmm, I thought, I am not so sure I like this. I almost NEVER have to go in my crate anymore. Once in a while, if I am really muddy or if I get lucky enough to have a bullystick or a big fat marrow bone, I might spend some time in there. I also like to sleep in there sometimes, but only with the door unlocked.

So then she put me in the crate and locked the door. She did let me have some of my chew bones, my blankie, and of course, my primo pad which I still haven't destroyed. (Are you thinking about my HULA certificate?) Oh sorry, I got offtrack there. So, let's see, oh yes, then we pulled out of the driveway and took the route to the highway. We drove for about a half hour and then she pulled into a big parking lot and parked the babymobile.

I wondered what would happen next. Well, Mom got out and opened my side of the minivan and let me out of the crate, on a leash, of course. We walked around for a few minutes and I got a chance to water one of the trees there. First thing I know, Mom is saying "There she is!" Who, who could it be? Well, I got to meet one of the nicest ladies AND to make it even more special, she is the mummi of efurribodi's favorite MalPal SUMMI!!!!! Yes, I got to meet up close and personal with Ms. Shelly. And here we are!!!

This is the parking lot of a Panera near the KCI airport in north Kansas City. One of the first things I did was to sniff Summi's Mummi all over and I finally found the pupscent on her shoes. I knew then that she was an OK gal.

Here I am resting while Mom and Shelly chatted and enjoyed a pecan danish and beverages. Mom had brought me a chewy bone to gnaw on but Ms. Shelly shared some of her yummi danish with me.

Mom and Summi's Mummi spent a lot of time just talking but every once in a while, I got a nice ear scratching or some snuggle time with my new friend. If you look closely on the right side of the photos, woo can see Mom's RAL bag from the AO4's Mom.

And then before I could get any more huggies, it was time to hit the road. I had such a fun visit with my new friend. I just had to let her know how much I liked her. Here is one of Mom's favorite pics.

So that was my Sunday morning. It was a fantastic adventure.

Woo, Thunder
