I’ve come a long way since the streets of Miami, and I’m pumped to share my stories with you. Mom and Dad took me on my first big adventure a few months ago when they decided to move across the country to the land of Portland. They said Florida was sweaty, smelly, and boring, but I thought we had a lot of great times there. I really miss my best friend Sushi, a Boston terrier I lived with for a while before the big move. He smelled like salty salmon, and he loved to clean my teeth with his kisses. I wonder if he’s eating salmon treats without me right now.
When we were road-tripping out of Florida, we visited Uncle Steve in Dunellon who taught me all about life on the Rainbow River. I thought the sparkly river looked particularly terrifying, and I pretended to be brave when we first got in the boat. The boat shook like crazy when we first got on! I kept standing up to make sure Dad was okay, but he told me to just stay calm and he sang songs about me until I decided to “go lie down.” Mom was in her own little boat, laughing and taking pictures of us the whole time, and I made sure to woof if she got too far away from us. Overall, I give the Rainbow River two paws up!
We visited my best pups in Georgia, then drove through a million other states. It literally took us forever to get to Portland. We stopped at so many parks along the way that by the time we got to Portland, I didn’t even feel like going to the doggie park. The doggie park is my favorite place in the whole world because I love to roll in the mud. I smell amazing after the park then mom ruins it with the bath. She makes me smell like freakin’ oatmeal and lavender, and all my friends laugh at me until I roll in the mud again. Mud is the bestest.
