Lights, Camera, Action!

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  Well, today is the day that we have to be on TV I hear.  First of all, I have no idea what TV is, but if I am to be on it, well, it must be pretty special.  I am not one for the spotlight, but I am. Seriously though, is this a face meant to be on TV, or what?

Baby, look at me
And tell me what you see
You ain’t seen the best of me yet
Give me time
I’ll make you forget the rest

IMG_4770.JPG

Yesterday, getting ready for this TV thing was not fun whatsoever.  Baths with 4-Legger of course, new collars for us, and new pants for the persons.  Once again, I think pants are overrated.  Who wants to wear pants? But after being on the road for over a year, the persons have had no time to buy clothes, and the clothes they started out with have pretty much either fallen off of them because they have lost weight, or they have been battered by the campground washing machines.  Has it really been over a year?!

It is time they pull themselves together. I have a reputation to uphold.

I got more in me
And you can set it free
I can catch the moon in my hand
Don’t you know who I am

IMG_4352.JPG

So what is happening at this TV place today?  I have no idea.  Apparently, as I am told, the persons will sit around and talk, Digby will try to use the bathroom on everything, or get anyone to scratch his back.  He will also pretend to be the good dog, while I am the irritable one.  Oh, this is like any day I suppose.  Except a million gazillion people will be watching it.  And this is making the persons very nervous to say the least.  Hmmm.  A million gazillion people?  Does this mean I will be famous?

I feel it comin’ together
People will see me and cry, fame
I’m gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame, fame
I’m gonna live forever
Baby, remember my name

Why are the persons nervous? First off, I refuse to walk on shiny floors, and Digby will not either.  Will the new station have shiny floors? Will we panic for the million gazillion people to see?  Second, will they ask Digby and I questions that we do not know the answers to?  Like what is the meaning of life and the shortage in this world of pancakes and peanut butter cookies? We just do not know.

But after we spent all day yesterday getting ready for the TV thing, the persons came to a few conclusions, which I in fact could have helped them figure out in the first place.  First, we are rescue dogs.  We are dogs.  We are not people.  We will not act on camera like you want us to.

Just another peaceful walk. #wellbehaved #imnotatrainer #notforhire #sorry #2travelingdogs

A post shared by 2TravelingDogs (@2travelingdogs) on

Digby will probably pee on something or eat something or step on something he should not.  I will probably get irritated at the cameras, at the noise, at the people who are in that TV thing.  The persons will not know the answers to all of the questions.  And well, it will probably be a disaster.

IMG_4270.jpg

But…like with every part of the past year for us, we have made it through storms, we have made it through tunnels, over bridges, broken down on the side of the road, and too many other things to mention.  Did we give up then, and will we give up now?  NO.  Because it is and always has been about helping the animals in our country who need help.  It is about the people across the country doing all they can to help them.  And it is not about US.

Well, it is about my handsome, but only about 25%.  How can this somewhat NOT be about my handsome?

We are on state #48.  48!!!  We still have more to do to complete our Adventure Of A Lifetime.  And we still have one more rescue to visit in California! So…if the TV thing is not perfect today, so be it.  How am I so confident about that?  Seriously.  I already mentioned I have the face for TV, but this is us.  This is our family.  This is who we are.

We aren’t perfect.  The persons will more than likely have dog hair all over them, Digby’s breath will stink, and I will growl at someone.  But this is our family.  This is who we are. And who we are is a family who has given up a year of our lives for animals and people.  And we have been happy to do it.

Now.  Let’s tell the world how THEY can help us help more animals today.  Let’s do this!

Baby, hold me tight
‘Cause you can make it right
You can shoot me straight to the top
Give me love and take all I got to give

Even if you aren’t in the Sacramento, California area, you can still watch live today by clicking here! We will be on between 9-10 a.m. Pacific Time.

Total Eclipse Of The Bark

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  The day is here.  The day we have all been waiting for.  What are we waiting for?

There’s nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

IMG_4899.JPGGirl Person says that today, the moon will cover the sun and make it dark.  So she told us that when that happens, Sheriff Brickle and I will be going inside.

IMG_4850

And if you’ll only hold me tight
We’ll be holding on forever
And we’ll only be making it right
‘Cause we’ll never be wrong together

I thought about what the persons are so excited about seeing.  So they have to buy special glasses to look at the sun or something, but if it supposed to get dark, what do you need glasses for?

IMG_4879.JPGI have no reason, nor do I want to look at a dark sun.  Now.  If you told me that the sun was going to turn into a pancake, that would be more exciting.  It is kinda like when you make pancakes, and you pour maple syrup on them, well, they get dark.  And that is the only eclipse that I would be interested in watching.

IMG_4844.JPGAnd I will tell you, that if that miracle happened, a once in a lifetime event of a dark pancake sun, I would be barking in excitement.  A total eclipse of the bark.

We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time

But, if that is not truly going to happen today, I will be staying inside and crying over the loss of pancakes that could have been.

Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there’s only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

Sheriff Brickle says that he could care less about the eclipse.

IMG_4864.JPGHe said that the real attraction today, and every day is looking at him.  Do you need special glasses for that, Brickle?

So, my suggestion for today is this.  Make yourself and your dog some pancakes with maple syrup, preferably the dark grade.  Then, let your dog sleep off the pancake coma, you go outside, put on your glasses which make no sense, and enjoy the eclipse.  Then, write a letter to Sheriff Brickle that he is still the most enjoyable thing to look at and post some pictures on our Facebook page of the eclipse where you live.

Have a good day everyone, and be safe.  Enjoy this special day and forget about all of the bad things happening in the world.  The earth, the planets and nature were put here for us to enjoy.  And those things are what really matters. And pancakes.  With syrup. A total eclipse of the bark!

IMG_4846.JPG

Now.  We have had a change in plans today. We were supposed to leave for Bodega Bay, California today….but….then we got an invitation to appear live on the Good Day Sacramento TV show Tuesday morning! So we will be staying here in Sacramento one more day than planned.  We are a little nervous…but we can do it!

What Floats Your Boat?

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  When it’s as hot as it is in Sacramento, California, you question everything.  Do I have to go outside today?  It is possible to have all of my peanut butter cookies delivered?  Is it good that I am here adding to the hotness of this place?

IMG_1018.JPG

Parts of California are as different as me and Deputy Digby.  At the beginning of the week, I was freezing my cute butt off in Ft. Bragg.  Then, at the end of the week, I was contemplating whether I should move to Alaska.

IMG_4656.JPG

You see, I have come to the conclusion, that no matter where we go, someone wants to live there.  Someone loves it there.  Someone built roots there, but not as dark as Girl Person’s.  And liking different things is what makes us all interesting! Whatever floats your boat!  Mine would prefer to be floating on peanut butter.

IMG_4634.JPGIf you have been along with us on this trip, you know that we have all been more than excited to get back to Sonoma County, California.

We thought at this point in the trip, we would know where we were going to be more permanently.  But since that is not the case, the persons decided that what would float their boats would be to enjoy wherever we are on whatever day that may be.  We are staying in Sacramento till Monday as the persons have some work here.  But then on Monday…we are excited to tell you that we are headed back to our place of happy.  The place we left over five years ago to go back to Florida.  A place that Girl Person thought she would never, ever see again.  And our first stop in Sonoma County?  Bodega Bay.

As we have got closer and closer to especially Girl Person’s place of happy, she has been crying a lot.  It makes no sense to me that persons cry when they are sad, they cry when they are happy and if you are Girl Person, you cry when you don’t like the wine you bought.

IMG_3426.JPG

She told me part of the reason she was crying is that sometimes, you may think something is impossible.  When we left Sonoma years ago, it was because we could not sell our home in Florida, Girl Person had lost her job, and Granny Person was getting older, and we were missing family.  Girl Person started the dog treat business and she promised to herself to work as hard as she could to somehow get enough money to move back to California.  She did work as hard as she could, and yet, things didn’t work out as planned.  Girl Person says she has heard if you work hard enough, anything is possible.  Well, sometimes, it ain’t and you have to regroup.  We aren’t getting back to California in the perfect scenario.  We still don’t have anywhere to live and Granny Person isn’t here to tell her about it. But you know what?  We are back, Sonoma County.  And we plan to enjoy it here again for as long as we can.  No matter what imperfections are there.  I mean, I have no imperfections, but you know what I mean. I pretty much float everyone’s boat.

IMG_4650.JPG

Are we uncertain about where our adventure is ultimately going to take us? We really are.  It is hard not to worry.  But to let our worry overshadow our joy is not something I will allow.  It is like getting a little burnt edge on a peanut butter cookie.  You ignore it and eat it. And that is what we plan to do this week.  We may not be arriving back in Sonoma County with everything in order.  But we have each other, our Big Blue Treat Wagon and we plan to float our boats!  Are you with us?

One last item on the agenda, Monday is some solar eclipse thing.  And we want everyone to be safe and have fun!

So get prepared, but have a good weekend, and follow us on our Facebook page all weekend!  Then, Sonoma County? Get ready….cause here we come!

Speed Bumps, Green Beans and Scrambled Eggs

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Have you ever had a day when you just…can’t? You can’t make yourself be in a good mood for anything or anyone. I mean, I haven’t had one of those days. But Sheriff Brickle pushed me to my limit, and I almost got there. Almost. All because of a bearded man, speed bumps, and green beans, in the worst campground on our Adventure Of A Lifetime.

It may come as a shock to you that even me and the Sheriff get a bit, well, irritable sometimes. We seem to pick up on the moods of the persons. If they are having a good day, generally, we are too. But when it is a bad day? Sometimes, even a home cooked dinner can’t make it all better. Not even sardines and green beans.

IMG_4379.JPG

So on day five of our campground stay, as we were having dinner and wondering how many more days we had here, I was trying to focus. Dinner is always something you should focus on. And for me, dinner goes by way too fast. And Sheriff Brickle eats way too slow. Truth be told, he won’t even start eating until I am done so that he can taunt me with his. And after being with bad mood persons for a few days, I was a little tired of it. That is when a bearded man, which scared me, decided to walk by our campsite and I howled and jumped, and Sheriff Brickle thought that I was trying to steal his precious green beans. He jumped on me picking a fight, and although the last big brotherly fight we had was a year ago, I meant to make up for loss time. I did not want his green beans, I told him so, and we fought with the bearded man running away. Girl Person could not get us apart, and about this time, Boy Person ran outside and broke us up. We were all bark, and we were ok, but as another man walked by and asked Girl Person if she was having a good time at camp, all she could do was bend down to pick up the wasted green beans and call it a day.

You see, sometimes, things make no sense. And because they make no sense, you have to step back and appreciate that. At least, that is what I try to do. So the next morning as we were camping on a downward hill with a door that wouldn’t come open, and as Girl Person was outside washing dishes in the dirt, she took a moment to look around. Sheriff Brickle and I were content to sit outside and look as well, because there was plenty to look at.

IMG_4269.JPG

We had forgotten about our fight long along. And you see, it doesn’t bother us much where we camp as long as we have a picnic table to sit by, and a comfy rug or grass. For the persons, I suspect they would like a little more. But at this point in the trip, we were here and we were happy to have somewhere to park. Well, not really. Because after six days of roughing it here, Girl Person had had it. She was trying to wash dishes with a faucet spewing water at her from all directions and getting muddy feet, while trying to keep the dishes clean. That is when she heard it. The sound of music blaring…so she looked up from her dirty pot of leftover chili beans.

There he was. A man in a chair with wheels on it. It looked as though he had probably been in a this chair with wheels on it for awhile, and he sure was making it a good day. I thought he must not know he was in the worst campground ever, according to the persons. As he was blaring his favorite song, Girl Person saw it. Clearly, this man in the chair with wheels was not about to see the speed bumps he was about to hit at a very high rate of speed, while he was blasting his music. Girl Person had no idea what to do as she dropped her pot in the dirt. There he went. Faster. And faster. I could not even bark in time, and Sheriff Brickle was occupied with arrests reports a mile long. There. He. Went. He hit it.

Girl Person held her breath and his music changed radio stations at the force of the hit.

Girl Person started running towards him, but as he hit the speed bumps, he jolted forward with the gracefulness of an Olympic gymnast and seamlessly propelled himself over those speed bumps, all while singing the songs of his radio. He had done this before. He liked it here. He liked the worst campground, according to the persons.

Girl Person knew it was probably a once in a lifetime experience to see such a feat. She thought about the events here at camp in the past week. Green bean fights, meeting people living in tents, showers with dirty drain water and scorpions…and the man in the chair with wheels. And she told me and Brickle that every single place, every single experience from this past year had taught us something, and often times, we were taught when we needed to hear it the most.

IMG_4604.JPG

Girl Person said enough with the pity party. That we were getting on the road to Sacramento. In just over a week, we are going to be on our way to Sonoma…a place we have waited to come back to for over five years. So, as we always do when we are about to hit the road, Girl Person made us our road trip breakfast, scrambled eggs. We forgot about the fight, the green beans and ate our breakfast with joy. As much joy as blasting old rock music in a chair with wheels on it over a speed bump. We said goodbye to the worst campground on our trip, but thanked it too. Because now, more than ever, when so many things seem bad in our world, there are lessons to be learned. There are people to learn from when things seem at their worst.

Bring Me Flowers

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  If you haven’t stopped and smelled the roses lately, I have to ask you.  Why not?  I would prefer to stop and smell the peanut butter cookies, but I haven’t found a garden that grows those yet.  So, I decided to compromise and visit a dog friendly garden here where we are in Ft. Bragg, California yesterday.

Because we have some of the best fans ever, a lady person told us she had a treat for us  and bought Girl Person and Boy Person tickets and even me and Deputy Digby got to come along!

IMG_4341.JPG

Guess they didn’t know about his reputation for peeing on everything.

We had not planned on visiting the gardens because it seems like we always have so much to do.

IMG_4349

Everyone always has so much to do.  And no matter what you don’t get done today, there will be more that you don’t get done tomorrow.  So, even though I am all about being on duty all the time, even I realize that you have to stop sometimes and appreciate what is around you, and who is around you.  When was the last time you brought someone flowers?  It doesn’t have to be actual flowers..but have you showed appreciation for those you love?


It is easy to take those we love for granted.  How often have you just passed by beautiful flowers because you have an errand to run or a place to go?  How often have you forgotten how much those around you mean to you, and how you would miss them if they were gone?

IMG_4354.JPG

Life has a way of getting us caught up in..well, life.  There is a lot wrong in our world, but there is a lot that is right too.  Don’t let life make you forget to bring those you love flowers, whether those flowers be a kind word, an unexpected peanut butter cookie, or even a pancake for Digby.  Putting everything together that is right around us makes for a beautiful day.  Let the ones that you love know today that they are as pretty as a garden full of flowers…but not as pretty as me.

Thank you to the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens in Ft. Bragg, California for welcoming us on our Adventure Of A Lifetime!

Today, we are leaving Ft. Bragg and headed to Sacramento, California!  Keep updated on our Facebook page today.

Who Is Duffy? Or Diffie?

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  Oh, what a tangled web I weave.  I have no idea what that means.  I also have no idea who Duffy is, but I know what thrown up cat poop is.  I know it quite well.  Let me introduce you.  Perhaps, you need no introductions.  Boy Person sure wishes he would not have meet the cat poop. Or Duffy.

Sometimes, Girl Person has to go to the store to get us food and presents.  She always explains this quite nicely, but truth be told, we don’t like it.  Sheriff Brickle doesn’t like staring out the RV window for an hour.  I don’t like waiting for my new treats.  And Boy Person? Well, he pretends he doesn’t miss her.  She doesn’t go often, but when she does, she says it is her short time away, and we don’t like that either.  So before she left for the store, she took us for a walk, and I found all kinds of stuff.  I thought that since she was going to be gone an hour, that I should probably eat enough to hold me over.IMG_4268.jpg

So as we were walking, I found treasures, all kinds of treasures!  Dead bugs, old chicken bones and yep.  Cat poop.  Before she knew what was happening, I gulped down a big ol’ chunk of it, about half the size of my big ol’ chunky butt.  Did it taste good? I have no idea.  Because I just swallowed it whole.  I hear a lot of people like to dive for abalone around here.  I dive for cat poop.  The biggest cat poop.

They say that bears store food for the winter.  It is not winter here, but it sure feels like it.

IMG_4251.JPG

And I don’t know why, but cold weather makes me hungry.  As does hot weather.  But the cold even hungrier.  So I thought about how hungry I was, and I found some more cat poop.  And Sheriff Brickle?  He said I was about to be arrested, but then I smelled his breath.  Sheriff?  Cat poop?

So as Girl Person was telling us we were gross, she told  us that she needed to get out for awhile.  She brushed our teeth, grabbed that purse thing she has, her jacket full of dog bags hanging out and off she went.  Well, she was gone for about 15 minutes and all of a sudden, I felt it.  You know, that pang of guilt when you eat cat poop? No, not that.  I was sick, and it hit me like a ton of cat poop in an inappropriate way.IMG_4276.JPGBoy Person can sure move fast when he wants to, I will tell you that.  He grabbed a towel and tried to catch the cat poop, but I did not feel like throwing up on the towel, so I tried to get away.  Then, all of a sudden, if you have never seen flying cat poop, you are missing a show.  It flew across the room in whole form as I swallowed it, along with many other treasures from the morning walk.  Sheriff Brickle tried to scramble up to the driver’s seat of the RV, hoping he could take off, but nope, no one was going anywhere.  And…where was Girl Person?

As Boy Person started gagging, he stood there in silence.  What was he to do with this situation?  That is when Girl Person got the text at the store.

IMG_4242

Duffy?  Who is this character I wondered that threw up nasty?  Girl Person didn’t know either.  As she drove home, very slowly with many bottles of cleaners, she wondered if she should in fact even go home to this situation.  As she walked in, she saw everyone’s faces.  Boy Person stood there shaking his head but then everyone started laughing.  Girl Person told him to stop blaming Digby for something Duffy did.  Or Diffie.  Exactly!

When I meet this Duffy or Diffie character, I am going to give him a piece of my mind.  Some persons I heard can’t hold their liquor.  Well, Duffy can’t hold his cat poop.  And he is ruining my chances of diving on future walks.

In other news, Girl Person says that it might be awhile before she can trust it to leave us all again.  Maybe if she talks to Duffy, she clear it with him first. Or get a ride home from the store from Joe Diffie. I will handle the introductions.

It’s A Wild World

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. I seem to be pretty popular around here lately. When I say “around here”, I mean the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV. Actually, the RV is running pretty low on treats since we are on state #48. All of those boxes full of treats and presents for the rescues we visited is about gone. Can you believe it? We only have one more rescue visit to go in California, and as this trip is coming to a close, we have learned so much.  Did you catch our Oregon rescue video yesterday?  That was #47…only one more to go.

I am pretty popular “around here”, because this past weekend at camp, the persons were kind of sad. And whenever anyone is sad “around here”, I am the go to machine for hugs and kisses and Digby love as Girl Person says. They needed my love.

Oh baby baby it’s a wild world
It’s hard to get by just upon a smile

And I was ok with that, although I didn’t really understand why. Everything seemed good to me. I mean at camp, the smell of breakfast at all hours and campfires is good. But I suppose I don’t really see or understand as much as the persons do what is behind that campfire. The persons say it’s a wild world out there.

 

It might come as a surprise to you that not every day on the road is filled with everything good.

You know I’ve seen a lot of what the world can do
And it’s breaking my heart in two

As we arrived at this campground, which is the only one we could find, we knew it wasn’t fancy. Electricity is overrated sometimes, and we wished we would have stayed in a dirty river or something. It would have been better than this.

IMG_4202.JPG

We thought we could make it through as usual. I don’t even need much. Give me my bed, a stack of pancakes, a nice dinner, presents, frozen yogurt snacks and more treats and that is good. But I guess the persons like showers without dirty drain water and scorpions trying to bite their feet. I guess the persons like for volleyballs and baseballs not to hit our RV and car every ten minutes. I guess the persons don’t like to pay $8 to swim in a dirty pool. I also guess the persons don’t mind a bonfire two feet away from our RV about ready to put an end to this trip any minute. I guess I know why my Digby love has been needed so much “around here”.

But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there’s a lot of bad and beware
Beware

But all of this, the persons said, could have been laughed away if not for the other things going on here around them. And many persons, who are busy with their lives in this country and elsewhere don’t see it either. For us, this was yet another eye opening experience on this trip. People living full time in tents. People with no homes who have little persons and furkids with them who live their day outside, or moving from place to place. Yes, persons. With no home, not even a Big Blue Treat Wagon RV.IMG_3931.JPGIt has been easy for us lately to feel sorry for ourselves, not knowing what is after this trip and feeling overwhelmed.  But we know our lives are pretty good.

The persons realized that our problems were small in comparison to such a big problem of homelessness in our world, not just for animals, but people too.  And it simply makes us sad to see this.

Now that I’ve lost everything to you
You say you want to start something new
And it’s breaking my heart you’re leaving
Baby, I’m grieving

But it also makes us appreciate what we do have.  Our house may be on wheels right now.  But we have a house, and we have each other.  And that’s ok by us.

It is easy not to watch the news or listen when we hear of problems in our world.  In fact, we don’t even have one of those TV things. But when you see something like this right in front of your eyes, you can’t look away.  So we are going to find out today if we can help.  We can’t give one of these families a house…but can we give their dog food, or get them a bigger tent?  This is wild world we live in, and it is not getting better on it’s own.  But what can you do today, in your busy day to be nice, to make someone else’s day a little easier, a little happier?  Can you give out some Digby love?

-Deputy Digby Pancake

In a perfect world, we could take our pets with us everywhere! But, shocking as it is, there are still places that don’t allow our furkids.

IMG_4234.JPG

Leaving them at home when there is a chance that the air conditioning could malfunction makes us worry. Some may think that it is safer to take them along in the car, but then our furkids are put in another unsafe situation with possible escalating temperatures in a short amount of time. Although well intentioned, this is just not safe! Wouldn’t they be more comfy at home taking a nap while we shop or go to the doctor? So what can we do for peace of mind when we have to run errands and do responsible person things? How can we be sure that our furkids are chilling at home in comfortable temperatures?

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  I will not elongate my intro today. Let me get right down to it. My patience is gone at this point.  Can you tell?

Are you ready
Are you ready for this
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat

Have you ever been embarrassed to be seen with someone?  You know, maybe it was when your mom dropped you off at school, or picked you up.  Maybe it was your little brother you didn’t want to be seen with at the mall or something.  Or maybe it was a Big Blue Treat Wagon RV that was demolishing everything in its path with dust, and making people run for their lives.

Dust. Dust. Dust. Everywhere. Dust. #california #2travelingdogs #48states48rescues

You know, I am not one to be overdramatic, but I am on Fridays.  And for the last few weeks, this RV has decided that it is going to blow everyone and everything to smithereens.  Apparently, a fan has decided that it will run at all times, and in the process, it is creating a dust storm here in California.  If you watch the weather, I am sure there are warnings.

Hey, I’m gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

Many places on this Adventure Of A Lifetime that we have camped at have had, well, less than pristine conditions.  And when you are moving every few days, you have to make due.  And as we pulled into the campground today, we knew it was coming.  We knew that yet another campground was going to be covered.  In dust.

But, after about the third campground in the last week, me and Deputy Digby and especially Girl Person were over it.

And another one gone, and another one gone

Mario Mouse apparently doesn’t care as he is still along for the ride.  As we went to find our site, Girl Person decided that we would follow behind so as not to be seen with the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV.

That is when she saw the commotion in the distance.  Campers scrambling to shut their windows and doors.  Dogs running for cover under picnic tables.  Persons simply covering their heads and eyes with jackets and asking where the dust was coming from.  We shook our heads.  We don’t know.  Huh?  We are just fellow campers…what Big Blue Treat Wagon?

As Boy Person stepped outside of the RV to try and make it level on a downward hill with stray cats running everywhere and a sign for foraged mushrooms for sale, he looked around.  Huh.  The dust cloud seemed to make quite a commotion.  But we were here, and that is what counted after driving along yet another treacherous road.  We were safe, although, yeah, dusty.  Yeah, yet another campground who would remember 2 Traveling Dogs for sure.

Ft. Bragg, California?  We are happy to be here…the only campsite we could find for the next 6 days.  We plan to make the most of your beautiful beaches and sand.  We also like the fact that there is a lot of fog so as to hide the dust.  We know one day we will probably look back at this and laugh.  If we can breathe.  Our lungs are filled with dust currently.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page this weekend to see what adventures we get into.  And don’t forget, Sunday morning, we will be posting the latest episode of Stop Hounding Me with the folks at the South Coast Humane Society in Brookings, Oregon!  Bigfoot may make an appearance.  Although the campground owner told us we need to watch for mountain lions, bears and foxes here.  Not sure how we are going to see them thru the dust though.

Where’s The Lighthouse?

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Today is not Friday, but today is a great day, just like every day can be a great day.

Every day can be great day! #2travelingdogs #48states48rescues #california #beachdogs

But what if you are on the wrong path, because you aren’t following the lighthouse?  Where’s the lighthouse?  We wondered that too yesterday as we were trying to find it thru the California fog

One of the most beautiful lighthouses was nowhere to be seen, but we knew it was there.

We saw a light flicker here and there.  We knew that there must be sunny days around here at some point, but it wasn’t today. Or the day before.  Or the day before that. Yet, that seemed to be ok for all of us, because the beauty was still there…we could feel it.  Kind of like when you know there are pancakes at a restaurant you drive by.  You know they are there. And it is quite comforting.

But some days, does it feel like you can’t find your path? We felt that way yesterday, because first, we couldn’t even find where to walk.  We ended up in patches of sand spurs and weeds.

And we wondered if the foggy view was even worth it.  Girl Person says that is how she has felt lately.  She knows that we are near the end of this trip, but we have no idea where our path is going to lead us.

I’m a lonely lighthouse, not a ship out in the night. I’m watching the sea.
She’s come halfway round the world to see the light and to stay away from me.
There is a shipwreck lying at my feet, some weary refugee from the rolling deep.
Ah, could you lose it all and fall for me?

Our view seems foggy and it has been hard for her to see the good things around us, even though she knows they are there.  Life can be hard for persons, I see that.  And for our persons, I will tell you the truth as a Deputy always does, they are worried.  They can feel the beauty around us, but they are foggy. And so, Sheriff Brickle and I are being their lighthouse right now.

They need us to show them that life is more than worrying.  It is seeing the good things, even if you are foggy, even if you path is hard to follow.  What is lighting your path?  Where is your lighthouse?

Couldn’t we shine? Rolling all my golden moments into one.
Like to shine like the sun for one more summer day.
Like to shine like a lighthouse for one last summer night,
flashing on, flashing, fading away.

Persons have more things to do than us dogs, but that allows us to see the things that you don’t.  Yesterday, even with the fog, we saw the cows, we saw the lighthouse in the distance finally, we saw the birds flying along their windy paths.  We all have different paths to happy.  But knowing where you are trying to go is the first step.

Well if you feel lost and lonely and don’t know where to go
and you hear this song on the radio,
or even if you’re feeling healthy and strong, you might like to sing along.

Did we ever reach the lighthouse yesterday? No, we didn’t. The fog was too heavy and the cliffs were too steep.  Some days may be like that too, and you have to regroup and start again tomorrow.  Our tomorrow starts today…foggy or not.  So. Where’s the nearest IHop?  That is where my path is leading me.

Have you ever wondered how much time you have left with your furkid? Have you ever wondered if you really know your furkid? Are you giving them the best life possible? Do you hear them? They are talking. Are you listening?

The Endless Path book by Laurie Duperier changed the way we viewed Brickle and Digby. I realized I was not letting them live up to their full potential, and I wasn’t sincerely listening to their voices.
If this book can help one other pet parent see their furkid as a true individual, one with hopes and dreams, we will be so happy. If you would like a copy, the author and Gunny are giving ONLY our fans an opportunity at a signed and dedicated copy for only $15.
This price is way below retail, but Laurie and Gunny are determined to get their message out, and we want to help them do that. They have supported our Adventure Of A Lifetime, and although this particular path and trip may be coming to a close for us, our lives together will be an endless path. We have so much more to do and accomplish.
Get your copy ONLY at https://squareup.com/store/gunnys-rainbow-llc. We hope that this book helps you to hear your furkid’s voice. It is an important one.
