have a great trip, we will miss you!


Have a great trip! If you come to Arizona make sure to say Hi.


Safe travels! I'm sure the boys will be just fine while you're gone. When we travel, most of my stress is about the poopers. Although, before we had them, I found plenty of other things to stress about. I'm confident yours will be happy and won't hardly notice you're gone.

I love all the pics, especially the second-to-last one of the first collage: greyhound swarming!

What is that on your bike handlebars - is it an iPhone holder?! I need one for my BlackBerry!


Safe jouneys.


Oh wow! I don't know if I could leave the girls for a month, but I can imagine that you have a lot of people you want to see when you get back to the States! I'd beg to meet you, but it doesn't sound like you'll be near me at all! Have a great time! I'll sure miss your posts.

Thank you. I usually judge my trips by how many greys I get to hug while Im gone. The last two trips saw no hounds. Im hoping that this one will be houndful.

Arizonas not on this trip, Caron, but we do love the US southwest. Itll be on in the future. Sometime after this trip is paid off. Its 3x as much to fly to the US now than when we go in the fall or spring, but this is his summer vacation time, and its silly to go in Jan (still his time off from school) and miss the holidays.

Terri, that IS an iPhone holder. I like to map my rides. I dont know why. I dont go fast, but I like to see where Ive been and to compare routes and times. When I look at times, I compare the time I leave and how long that takes. Leaving before 5 is much faster. By 5, the tradies are out and on their way to work. That slows me down. Next to it is a cupholder. Its not so good for riding with a full thing of coffee, but I dont drink and ride. I use it for my coffee as I walk from the coffee shop to the platform. 

It also holds those cups of Oreos. Noice.

Houndstooth and girls,

Leaving would be harder if I didnt have a network of sitters. For long trips when were both gone, Camp Coominya or Camp Brooke is ideal. They have a party and dont miss me. If I feel that they dont miss me, then I can go. I travel with my phone and update the critter album so that I have little photos to remind me. Also, Cathy and Brooke send me lots of photos.

When I go solo, I leave them with the manboy. Hes not so good with the photos--hes not the cybernerd that I am, but he emails me stories. I also dont go for that long when Im solo. I dont travel much then either. Solo is strictly family and friends. If they travel, I do, too, but its more about catching up when I dont get to see them. 

When we go away for less than a week, I have a few friends here who, because of rental agreements, cant have dogs or cats, but enjoy mine. 

Ive put my dog (Tamale) in a kennel only once. That was Cathys place before I knew her. For $4.95/day (!!), Tamale stayed in the kennel that is about the width of a master bedroom and the length of an average suburban block. I still tell her that if adding two more gets too much for the house and their pack, the back kennels would be fine. Theyd love it. If I didnt have this network, Id worry. 


Hope you have a great trip. We'll miss reading your posts while you're traveling but I'm sure you'll have lots of interesting things to post when you get home and back to the pooters.

Looks like they'll have a great time!

Have a fabulous trip! It was almost 80 degrees in South Texas yesterday, so hopefully the weather will be nice for you!

Never Say Never Greyhounds

I cannot imagine being gone for an entire month!!! I hope you have a fun time in the states.
