After The Rain.

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  Well, Sheriff Brickle was supposed to give the weekly update today.  But he is too busy worrying about our friends and family in that Florida place.


I don’t really know how to worry, so I will give you the update today about what has been going on this week for us, our house search, our plans and other stuff.  When I say other stuff, it pretty much means pancakes.

First off, as you may know, I haven’t been feeling that well lately.


The vet person last year said we had to keep watching my symptoms to make sure I didn’t have something called Cushings.  I don’t know what that is, but I know I don’t like the vet person, no matter where the vet person is. So when they said they couldn’t see me till next Wednesday, I was ok with that.  The persons?  They keep worrying, but I don’t worry. When we go, I will just throw myself on the floor like I always do at the vet, try to bite them, and cry like a baby. We will let you know when I go next week. I am not in any hurry to do so.

Then, the search for where we wanted to live continued.  And continued some more.  We drove around and around looking at places that the persons said they couldn’t afford here in this Sonoma County, California place.  These homes have either fallen to the ground, are growing into the ground, or need to be torn down.  And we still can’t afford them.  They complained so much about it, that they started looking at living in other countries again.  Like France.  Let’s see.  I am not a dog, but for the same price…here are our choices…

You know, when you are in the middle of a storm, all you can see is the rain.  You can’t do much about it, you just have to wait.

And I guess, in a way, our family feels like we are just coming out of a storm.  The last year was hard for us traveling and going to all the 48 rescues and 48 states.  It was hard for us to look past the trip and plan anything, because just getting thru the days were hard.  Now, we find ourselves in a bit of a predicament.  All the persons want for us is a simpler yet better way of life.  We want to all be together and we want to keep helping animals in the world that need us, and who don’t have a voice.  So the persons feel like this is a very important decision.  They don’t want to spend so much money that we can’t afford something, or have to work 24 hours a day.  Then we can’t enjoy anything anyway.  So.  Yeah.  Now it is after the rain.  And we have to make some decisions here.  And not wait long to do it.  Because we are ready to start this new chapter in our life.  Just where is this chapter??  And why can’t we figure this out?


So, this next week, we will keep looking here at our options.  Plus, after it is safe for her to do so, Girl Person is going to be going to that Florida place and looking at houses there again.  Yes, me and the Sheriff will be staying with Boy Person.  I won’t keep talking about that so that Girl Person starts to panic….she does not do well leaving us…have I mentioned this before?

So I guess this report is not giving you much information.  But one last thing.  Ahead of everything right now, we still have one more video and one more article on our #48 rescue visit, Soft Paws Rescue in Santa Rosa, California.  We have to concentrate on that, even above finding a home. That will be airing on our Facebook page and website on SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 24TH.

So, that is that.  That was our week, and it was a good one despite not much being settled.  Why?  With all of the bad weather and bad things happening this week, we see that we have each other.  And at the end of the day, isn’t that the most important thing?  We know it is.  Because right now, we are plain worried about our Florida place.  Our friends and our families live there and they are in harms way.  We think about all of those in other countries and on islands that were affected too.  Every life matters, no matter where you live or what country you live in.  We are thinking of everyone.

So Florida place?  Our home where we started from?  We love you and we know we can’t do much over here in this California place.  If we could drive this Big Blue Treat Wagon RV over there and use it as an ark, we would.  But for now, we will hope that everything is gong to be ok after the rain.

    Deputy Digby, we always love hearing from you and hope you are feeling better. I had this thought, you have all given so much the past year visiting 48 states, going to rescues, writing to us, making us happy and sharing your life. Could you ask girl and boy person if they have ever thought about doing a Go Fund me page as I would sure give towards it. Girl person could write a book or recipe book, share more details of the rescues or think of another project. Please ask girl and boy person to consider it, you have such a great story to tell. Thank you so much, we love you all….xoxoox

    You can buy nice houses in the UP of Michigan for $20,000 or less. You could be in the country so you could stretch your legs. Job are crummy no matter where you go but cost of living is much cheaper. Boy person could be a PTF to start, at the post office. You would have time to write books and save animals. You could have a garden. Plant fruit tries. You can’t “go back.”. You found that out in California. Start new. Make a search, find an acceptable place and be your own trail blazer. Remember, in Europe, visitors are welcome but not as residents unless you bring a truch load of money. You can do this. Start fresh.
