Today marks my 100th day as a Tripawd! I know, just a few days ago Mom was bragging about my 3-month ampuversary, so you're probably thinking "Geeze, does every day have to be some kind of freaking holiday??" Well as a matter of fact, YES, when you are a Tripawd EVERY day is precious and you learn to treat every day like a holiday.
No one knows how to enjoy a holiday better than me, the couch potato queen! I am one of those girls who loves "relaxing" holidays. Mom, on the other hand, is more into the "go, go, go, see, see, see, do, do, do" type of holiday.
Soooooo... on that note, Mom told me this morning that she decided that she and I (plus Emmy and my big brother Alex) are going to go on a road trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains in early April. Our "Jerry Road Trip", she called it. I think she has been inspired by Jerry's stories (you know, my Tripawd "spirit" friend whose pawrents sold their home and business to travel all over the United States with Jerry.) I saw her eyes get all wet and sparkly when she was watching Jerry's story on that PBS special Sunday night, so I knew she was up to something.
My longest road trip so far in my life was a 4-hour car ride to Mackinac Island (plus a ferry boat ride). Yes, I know, I am a housecat! So this is going to be the biggest adventure of my lifetime. Mom wants to show me some cool stuff that she loves in the mountains and we are going to go stay at her dog-loving Aunt Margaret's guesthouse. It's right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Mom says it's so beautiful there and there will be lots of opportunities to dish out sloppy Dane kisses and Dane leans to all the people I will meet there and along the way. I can't wait!
So stay tuned in early April. I am sure Mom will take lots of pictures and have lots of stories to tell.
Hey, if you haven't already, you really need to check out Jerry, Jim and Rene on the PBS "Why We Love Cats and Dogs" show last weekend, here's the link: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/why-we-love-cats-and-dogs/interview-rene-agredano-tells-jerrys-full-story/4654/ And Mom says it definitely requires a box of Kleenex, so you might want to grab one first!
