NOT Fun Friday

So Lightning has been explaining to me that I am going to have to endure a new experience for the next several days.  Mom and Dad have to go to Texas to watch one of the grands while his parents are out of the country.

Do any of you know what it means to go to camp?  Lightning says we are going in the car tomorrow to a place where we get to stay in a nice air-conditioned area, spend some time in the playroom, and have lots of time outside with our caretakers.  He tells me not to worry because he will take good care of me.  This all sounds mighty strange to me.  What do you think? 

Hey, Mom - after hearing about this "camp", I think Lightning and I have a better idea.  Just tell Dad to buy two more airfares and we can come with you too.

Bummer, Mom says we will be a lot happier at camp than on an airplane:(  Please don't forget us while we are gone.  Mom says she will try to get some extra photos before she leaves so maybe she can do a few posts from Keller.  Meanwhile, can you all send some good thoughts to our Mom and Dad that their flight into the Dallas area goes smoothly.  Mom said something about "Harvey" making things a little challenging.  More confusion for this young pup - who is "Harvey"?

In an effort to console us, Mom said that she will definitely be making all of this confusion up to us in September when we are guaranteed to have a lot more fun at home.  Now what does that mean?  Sigh, life is just too confusing for this youngster.

Woos - Misty (and Lightning)

That Harvey guy is throwing a wrench into a lot of plans! We pray your Mom and Dad will have safe travels, with no added challenges!
We've never been to camp, but I'm sure Lightning will take really good care of you. Just stick with him and everything will be fine.
As per September being a lot more fun ... WOW! I wonder what that means?!?!
Yours sincerely,

WE really hope that Mom and Dad have a safe trip to Texas. Not good weather down there. We will keep our paws crossed for them. We bet you will have a good time at camp. Can't wait to hear about their trip and your camping days. At least Lightning will be there for you Misty. You all take care.

Casey said...

Ohhh, I hope you two have fun! I've never been to camp. I always stay at Grandma & Grandpa's or Auntie's house when Momma is gone, or someone comes to stay with us. But it sounds pretty pawesome.

Did you know Momma lived in Keller as a pup? She went to Keller Middle and High School. :)

Your camp sounds a lot posher than ours. Ours is an outdoor camp. We never really mind going because we're allowed to bark as much as we want! It's always better if you have a brother or sister with you. So just enjoy yourselves.

Barkley LOVED going to camp, and would get so excited to return. I stayed at my dog walkers house with her rescue Lab the one time both Mom and Dad had to be gone. My Mom checked the Pile-It weather source and it looks like just a chance of showers and though there might be a little turbulence on the descent to the airport the winds will be well within a safe limit for landing. Happy travels!

Don't worry, Misty. As long as big bro Lightning is with you, you will be just fine. We are sending lots of good thoughts to your parents for their flight and of course we on't forget you!


FiveSibesMom said...

Safe travels to your Mom and Dad...and no worries, Misty, we are confident Lightning will show you all the ropes around camp! I bet you will have tons of fun stories to share! Can't wait to hear...and hmmm, very curious about September...but it sure sounds promising!

Sending lots of prayers for a safe trip. You will have fun on your vacation and then you will be so happy when you see your mom and dad

LBJ said...

If you want to see early what's happening with flight delays and cancellations in Texas, use this site. It's usually very accurate. Just click on the green symbol by DFW to get all of Texas flight delay information.

It won't tell you if a specific flight is canceled/delayed. For that, you can go to and type in your airline name and flight number. I call that "Flight Stalker" as that's how I track if my husband is going to be home on time after a business trip. :-) LB

Hope your folks have a nice vacation. I'm sure you doggies will be OK. Don't worry, they won't forget to pick you up when they get back.

Millie and Walter said...

We hope you two have fun at camp. At least you will be together. Our paws are crossed that Harvey doesn't do anything bad for your pawrents trip.

Sue said...

We've never been to camp so we'll be waiting to hear about your adventure. This is an awful time to head to Texas. We're hoping Harvey gets tired out and goes to sleep.

Hope to hear that camp was fun - and it'll be good because you'll be together. Just think of all the fun you'll have when your humans come back and make it up to you for being away!!
