My apologies for disappearing lately. We have had a few changes that have not allowed us to spend much time on my blog. I promise I will try to get back to it soon. It might not happen right away but when things get settled a little, we should be able to post more regularly.
Who knows why these things happen? I have found it better not to try to figure it out. The bottom line is, we moved across the country. We went from the quiet serenity of Englewood, Florida to the raucous chaos of Southern California. Needless to say it’s a bit of a culture shock, even to a relatively young dog like me.
The people and the pace of everything seems to be crazy here but Dad assures me that it’s normal. I like to think I can roll with the punches but I was surprised by the different things I ran into. For the most part, the dogs on the west coast are the same as the dogs in other parts of the country so that’s nice. The people, on the other hand, are quite a bit different.
We didn’t take the most direct route from Florida to California. We could have gone in the straightest line possible and cut out quite a few states, but we wanted to see some people along the way. I’m glad we went the way we did. The longer trip was well worth it.
I’m going to write about our cross country experiences in a few posts. I’ll try to get you caught up on me and what I’ve been doing. I’ve been hanging out with my buddy Mac, which is pretty cool since he’s about the best friend I’ve had. We’ve been staying in San Diego with Heidi in her new apartment.
We hope she gets a good job soon because we’ll probably move to Orange County. Dad has been commuting there sometimes for the new job he started last week. He says the drive isn’t as bad as he thought it would be. He’s going to be traveling most of the time when he gets up to speed so it’s not real critical where we live.
Right now it’s convenient to stay with Mac and Heidi because I don’t have to hold it all day while Dad is gone. Plus it’s nice that I have a play friend. Dad takes Mac and I running with him almost every day. He’s trying to get skinny again but we recently got a care package from Grandma and that’s going to make it hard!
It’s hard to believe Christmas is only 11 days away. That means only 10 days until Mac and I can talk at midnight on Christmas eve! It’s going to be exciting because this will be Mac’s first Christmas and I’ve never heard him talk before. I get to hear him bark plenty but that’s different than talking, which we’ll be able to do soon. I can’t wait!
