This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. And West Virginia? You have done rained us outta here! We can definitely see why you are so green and beautiful, but you made my brindle coat wet for the last time, you got gum on my butt, and yep. You. Are. Arrested.
I was trying to take a break in the sunshiney on Saturday. We had been on a long, gorgeous hike and we were tired. So we were taking a break while Boy Person tried to fix the leaking Big Blue Treat Wagon. And so I sat down in your grass. And you guessed it. Gum on my butt.
Boy Person saw it first, Girl Person panicked, thinking of the time a little boy had put gum in her hair in school. Her hair had to be cut off, and she knew she had to tell me. She went inside to get the scissors and I panicked too. My. Fur. !
She took off as little fur as possible, but you can imagine that I have every hair on my brindle coat accounted for. Its not like Digby Pancake’s fur which is always a mess, and he thinks that is a style. Nope. This was affecting my handsome.
So Girl Person had a talk with me. She told me that I would be more than valid in arrest this West Virginia place for the rain and for the gum. But she told me that I should probably think about coming back here one day so that we can see more. And since we are coming back, to go light on the arrests and see if the behavior improves. We got to see a lot of this beautiful state like the forests and the mountains but we really want to see more. Much more. We are sorry we couldn’t do everything that we wanted to.
But when your RV is leaking and rain keeps pouring down, you gotta do what you gotta do as well as get gum out of your butt. West Virginia? I know I am arresting you, but I want to thank you for showing us how beautiful you are, and especially your people and animal rescuers like the good folks we met in Morgantown, Homeward Bound WV.
Thank you West Virginia for a memorable week. We love you, but yep. You. Are. Arrested. On we go today to Berlin Lake, Ohio! Ohio! Here we come!
48 STATES, 48 RESCUES IN ONE YEAR! LET’S KEEP GOING!
