Our Trip to Show Low...
Well you guys can see that the car ride was pretty nice and we did behave for about 10 minutes...
But then the sun started to set and we had to look out at all the cool trees that we don't have in the desert. The house is in a town called Show Low, about 3 hours North East of Phoenix.
When we got there I was pretty shocked to find out it was in the 40's!! OMDOG!
Thank goodness Mom brought me a sweatshirt and Gram had lots of cozy blankets. I know 40 degrees does not seem cold to you guys but it has been in the 100's at our house lately so I have very little fur left.
Tanner thought he'd just warm up with a Heineken. Mom said, No Way buddy!
The next morning the sun was shining so we headed outside...
I had to leave some pee-mail!
A couple of years ago a huge fire devastated this area. Over 100 houses in the neighborhood burned and a ton of trees were burned as well. We were fortunate that our Grandparent's house did not burn, but they lost some trees.
We sniffed them out and hoped that something like that never happened again.
Tanner really liked running in the weeds.
It was really pretty and we were excited to see more green growing as it was totally barren before because of the fire.
There was a cool dump truck behind the house too, but Dad wouldn't let me drive it.
I was very good at climbing, I am quite nimble for my age.
We hung out on the porch a lot, it was fun to smell all the different smells in the air.
Even when we were inside, I was really busy watching for wild animals!
Tanner spent a lot of time with his new corn...
But he helped with guard duty some of the time.
BUT guard duty had to end because the Yankees were on!! You can see that the house in the mountains is definitely not a place where you have to 'rough it'. LOL! I wondered what Dad was doing while I was watching the tv...
I was shocked when we got home and I started to look at the pictures...
I saw this...that is MY DAD giving a treat to a dog that is NOT ME...
GET OUT INTERLOPER!! omdog!!
OMDOG another one! (she kind of looks like my friend Suzy! )
Apparently these are the neighbors dogs and they are 12 years old. Also, they apparently have not been socialized much so we were not allowed to play with them. WTF but they can eat our cookies???? So this is what happens when I take a few hours off of guard duty to watch baseball!
We got a nice walk in before it stormed, look how dark it was getting. Seriously, storms in the mountains are 50 bajillion times louder than they are at my house, it was NOT cool. BUT other than the fact that my Dad was giving out cookies to uncivilized dogs and the thunder was louder than anything in the world, it was a great trip.
Here are a couple of short movies of us in Show Low!
Tanner has some stuff to post about his time up north, of course he didn't behave...but we'll let him talk about that tomorrow...
