Home Again at last

I'm back home at last!  My parents finally got back from Baja.  Both of them are sick and coughing.  My mom's on stuff called antibiotics and she can hardly talk to me without hacking away. My dad sneezed until his back hurt so he's been in bed a lot too.  I have to go outside sometimes just to give my ears a rest from all the coughing at our house.  So much for vacations.  I hope I don't get it!  I had a great time at the ranch!

But here I am on a Navajo rug and I'm where I need to be, with them, my mom and dad.

I did enjoy their vacation because I was at the ranch almost every day playing with Rex and sometimes Charlie and Toby, too.  PB the cat was also there and now he's back home too.  I'm getting used to calling this place in Bend "home" even though my whole life has been at the ranch.  Until now.  But my mom says things change and that's what living looks like. So I see that I need to change too.

Today my mom took me for a walk on BLM land.  Wow!  Lots of new smells there!  Rabbit brush and sage and rim rocks and sage rats and ground squirrels and the wind blew sand and dust and juniper trees creaked.  With only a few steps from the house we were able to see the mountains and then no other houses at all!  It was like we were at the ranch with no neighbors.  She hasn't let me off the leash yet though. I think she's afraid I'll chase the neighbor's mules.  What she doesn't know is that yesterday when I was outside with my dad for just a minute, I did chase the mules!  But they chased me right back so I don't think I'll be going there again any time soon.

Here's a picture of PB and Caesar.  I missed Caesar!  And PB is one happy cat now that he's become an indoor Tabby.  We're all together in one place on Valentine's Day!  I hope you had a happy one!  Woof!  Woof!  Bo.

  1. All three of you look pretty comfy! Home is always a good place to be, and home just has to be wherever our loved ones take us. Right now I'm consoling my canine relative, Java (she's a chocolate Lab), who is staying with us for a week while her family is in Cuba for a holiday. That's a long, long way from western Canada and she couldn't go with them.

    My mistress came home from a Christmas trip sick with what she called a virus... more than a cold, but not really the flu, she said. It took a couple weeks before she was all better again, so she feels badly about your mom and dad and hopes they'll feel better very soon. She liked it when I curled up close to her and kept her warm. You should try that, too, Bo.

    Happy Valentine's Day to you and all your companions, canine, feline and human from me and my family.
