Road trip, part II

Road Trip Beckett
Tomorrow my mom and I are leaving NJ and heading back to Alabama. I will be sad to leave my cousins but I do love a good road trip. We'll be back to blogging more regularly on Monday!

Tug and Chase

My cousin Carrie is so much fun. We play Tug and Chase all day!

There is a TREE in the living room. As the esteemed Joseph Stains and his slightly less eminent brother Tanner Dorkelson would say, Wirehaired Fox Terrier?!?!?!?!?!

I am doing zoomies like crazy!

We made it!

Even though my mom wouldn't let me drive, we made fast time and arrived in New Jersey yesterday evening. The night before we stayed in a place called a hotel and it was so much fun. I want my mom to put two beds in her room at home so I can jump from one to another.

My dog cousins and I are getting along pretty well. Phoebe has stolen all my toys, but Mom says she'll get them back for me when we leave. Carrie is pretty fun, but every once in a while she has to get in my face and tell me I'm the number three dog in this house. As long as I stay number one dog at home that's fine with me. I think my cat cousin is pretty neat but he doesn't understand the zoomies.

My grandpa who I had never met before is super fun and sneaks me all sorts of tastes of peanut butter and cheese!

Road trip!

Our big road trip starts tomorrow morning, so my mom has been running around like crazy talking about lists and packing and cleaning. I helped her out with the last part by taking my toys out of that basket she must have mistakenly put them in. Anyway, she says we'll be ready to start out bright and early. I am getting excited to see my grandparents, uncle, and dog and cat cousins!

We'll be back on the blog once we reach our destination. In the meantime, be Have and get lots of treats.

What I'm about to tell you may be shocking. Last night, I was arrested. I had my mug shot taken:
mug shot
I was charged with willful destruction of my mom's shirt. The police took 27 8x10 color glossy photos to be used as evidence:
caught in the act
I was framed. Framed, I say!

Mom's little helper

We still have a few more days before we leave on our trip (on Saturday) but Mom has been busy trying to get us all ready. I've been a big help. For example, I helped mom make the bed:
Freshly made bed
She is so lucky to have me.

Getting ready to hit the road

What's up, dog bloggerinis? Not a whole lot of blog-worthy excitement around here. Mom has been pretty busy getting us ready to take a big road trip for Christmas (whatever that is). She just folded up my crate and took it out to make sure it would fit in the Fit (it did, although she had to fold down half the back seat). She's also gotten about elebenty books on CD from the library for the drive. I saw that one of them is about a C-A-T that lived in a library and I'm not sure I'll let her listen to that.

This morning we went to the V-E-T so I could get my parvo shot and lots of hugs and kisses from all the nice people at the V-E-T. I know some doggies don't like to go to the V-E-T but I love to go be admired by them, especially all the cute girls who work there. The last time I had my parvo shot I was in the slammer waiting for my furever home, which made my mom a little leaky to think about.

Life is good.

Getting into the Christmas spirit

I'm not really sure what this Christmas thing is (I was in the slammer last Christmas) but I am spirited at all times. Here I am helping Mom wrap presents:
Beckett gets into the Christmas spirit

My new BFF!

Beckett is serious about his bison bone
OMDOG my mom's friend Mitch went to Colorado and brought back two bison bones just for ME! Mitch is my new best friend forever, well... at least my new best human friend forever.

Me? No, I know nothing about how that happened.

Handsome devil
What? No, I have no idea how the Coke Zero got spilled all over the laptop keyboard. I was, uh... right over here when it happened. You know, you really shouldn't have had your beverage near the computer anyway. Or left the room while the bottle was open. You don't even like Coke Zero!

(Note from Mom: The blame is mine on this one. Do me a favor - if you have a laptop blogging machine, get a cover for the keyboard so this doesn't happen to you. The good news is that the hard drive of the computer is fine so I haven't lost any data, but the guts of the computer will probably need to be repaired. We have a backup blogging machine and though it is old, it turns out to be able to handle the camera just fine, so don't worry, we'll still be around while we figure out what to do about the laptop.)

Sad news

Sad news, my friends. My primary blogging machine had a bit of a mishap, so until Mom gets that sorted out I'm likely to be updating a bit less and without fresh photos. Do you suppose Santa Paws can give her a hand getting up back on the information superhighway?
