White Dog and I spent the day organizing things for our weekend road trip. Saturday we are going to Phoenix with Gregg, Candace and Dragon to meet in person and hug Casper, Nikki, and Buddy's mom from Saskatchewan who is visiting her snowbird parents. White Dog's bff, Prinnie and her brother Digby and their moms are driving in from California to do the same and to deliver a very special package. Comet and his Girl will also join us on Sunday for a Love the Dogs Celebration get-together and feast!
So we planned the Sunday meal and made up a shopping list. At White Dog's suggestion (and with Prinnie's yap of approval) we will be having grilled steaks, salad, multicolored pasta with asparagus and artichokes, garlic bread and carrot cake (White Dog's favorite)! There will be chicken jerky for those dogs who do not want salad with their steak (I guess, White Dog says, any humans as well)!
White Dog looked over my shoulder as I laid out her things that go in her travel bag. She brought over a few things she needed but thought I forgot. She chose welcome toys to share with our guests.We put together the packing lists for the humans.
The day looms so close but is taking forever to arrive, White Dog whined as she sat on the leash chair, ready to go. Soon, my love, I said, I am excited too! This will be such a great chance to be with our California heart family and to meet fellow bloggers who we already know so well through our words and pictures...and we will have a very special reason to celebrate!
By the way, mom is starting to show the ravages of her psychedelic youth...The Mighty Quinn is by Manfred Mann, NOT the Beach Boys...sssshheeesh!
