How my dogs are awesome, and other things…

Monday, May 23rd, 2011 | Dogs, Indigo, Ozzy

Yes, we are on vacation. And yes, I am posting. I am weird that way. Have computer, have wireless, might as well post!

First things first…Friday was the Long Drive Day. It was supposed to be about 15 hours long, but ended up at 16.5 due to an overturned diesel tanker (and subsequent closed road/traffic jam). This made me realize two things. First, when your Navigon GPS with add-on traffic pack doohickey tries to redirect you, listen to her. (Or maybe your GPS is a him?) They are right. Second, my dogs are freaking awesome. The two of them were so good in the car, I almost forgot they were there. Seriously, I had to check back a couple of times to see if they were breathing. I figured they would be good for at least 6 hours, but over 16? Crazy, crazy good.

OK, so now that I’ve explained to you how awesome they are, I’ll move on to the other things. Yes, they are enjoying the house here on St. George Island. And they are being pretty darn good in the house. We take them for walks, let them play on the beach, etc. Today was day 3 at the beach, and we were initially thinking that today might be the day Indy would go all the way in the water since the surf is calm. After some coaxing, it didn’t seem as if that would happen. So instead, we got the two of them rampaging up and down the beach (extremely good off leash, btw), to wear them out. Then Dan threw a clam at me. Or something like a clam. It still had someone living in it, so I tossed it back in the Gulf. And Indy followed it. All the way in. (It’s not at all deep here, but she could at shoulder height in about 5 feet.) Then I went in and she followed. She actually swam!

Before you ask, no I do not have pictures at this time. Yes, I will be taking pictures. But I do not have a waterproof camera, so I have to be a bit careful.

Check back later! We’ll be here in paradise.

Sounds like you guys are having a blast!

Indy sounds just like Juli with the water. It took us forever to get her in past her ankles, but now she’ll happily go in about chest deep – still no swimming though. Maybe Indy could give her some lessons?
