*The following is a special pup report from our very own BeBe, who just got back from her first long road trip, across TX, LA, MS, AL, GA, to SC. She would like to share her recently gained knowledge and tips with all today.*
Rules of the road:
EVERY time you see dad (who didn't want you to go), make sure you put on your best smile and wag that tail!!! Kissing up is not a bad thing.
Do not eat the stuffing out of the car.
When mom says, stay in my lap, she means it. She WILL pull over and put you in the carrier. Being put in the carrier is not so much fun.
Do not eat through the wires to dad's DVD player.
Learn to drink your water when the people stop.
Take at least ONE chewy. Something durable.
Remind mom she when needs new camera batteries;).
Do not bark in the middle of the night in the motel.
If mom puts you back in the car, in the middle of the night, because you wouldn't stop barking, make sure you burro deep in the blankets to be all toasty.
Make the most of your 'cuteness'. Say hello to strangers, the way THEY like, with a flash of a smile and a wag of the tail. Not the doggy way, with BIG barking.
Don't 'bury' your treats in the car, the people don't respect this and will throw your stash away.
When other dog's say hi, try not to return the greeting with your BIG bark.
When you stop for bathroom breaks, pee first, sniff around later. You don't want them loading you up, and you still need to pee.
Take some time to smell the...well...everything!!!
When you get home, share your experience with the webfriends and homepups.
When you get home, make sure you let the other dogs sniff you all over so they too can share the joy.
AND when mom and dad, feeling guilty, treat the OTHER dogs, who didn't go with you, make sure you are right there to get your share too:)
This has been Frank Ann Berry, or better know as BeBe, reporting on my recent road trip with the peeps. Peeing my way across the country, proving the phrase
"It's good to be the baby."
