When Neighborhood Dogs Meet And Road Kids Hit The Road

 October 29, 2022

   On our morning walk yesterday, Uno wanted so bad to go after a coyote. Fortunately he was on a leash and I kept him at bay. Later—off the leash—he encountered this.

Friend or foe?

   Actually, it's Bev's dog Fluffy from up the road. And they do this dance every single time they meet.

Okay, let's touch noses first. . .

   Then, they do that attractive smelling of the rear deal about seven times. It must be some dog protocol thing.

   Speaking of road rituals. . .

   We are taking our grandkids on a road trip next spring and the first thing I do is to remind everyone where we've been.

   Yes, I like to remind everyone of the history of road trips in our family.

   One of the extra benefits of road trips is finding good postcards that capture the flavor of the locale you are going to visit.

   There's many more rules, but we'll cover those tomorrow.
