In My House

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Another week has gone by and it went by too fast.  I have noticed that the older I get, the faster the days go.  Do you ever feel like this?  And around here, the faster time goes, it seems we get less and less done.


But when the Depression Monster tries to knock on the door, it seems that time stands still, because Girl Person doesn’t seem to move around very much.  It has been nice to be able to rest now that our big trip is complete.  But Girl Person knows that when she doesn’t keep super busy, the Depression Monster is more apt to find her.  And he was knocking, knocking, knocking yesterday.  But you know what I told that monster? This was my house.  And no Depression Monster is welcome in my house.

So when you need some lovin tenderness
And it’s me baby that you miss
Here’s the key to unlock the door
To my house (to my house)
Wo-oo-oo-oo- in my house

You see, that Depression Monster keeps yelling to Girl Person that she hasn’t found a house for us yet in this California place, or even the Florida place.  The persons decided that the fixer upper here in Bodega Bay with the stairs was probably too much for them to redo and to handle right now.  It would have taken all of our time and what is more important than time…especially now that the days are flying by?  But we are going to be honest as we always are. It is going to hurt real bad if we have to leave here.


The Florida place area that Girl Person looked at with Gandma is still on the table with my pancakes. The only thing that we could do there would to be to buy a little land and build a small house.


But again, the persons don’t know if they want that undertaking.  If they could make it simple enough…maybe.  And it is on the water.  So they called and talked to the realtor person, but they would have to buy two pieces of land to make it work. And they don’t know about that.  But again…it is on the table.  What else is on the table is still finding a house here in Sonoma County…a real fixer upper, but it wouldn’t be on the water.  Or, we could just decide to sell all of our stuff and go to Europe where things are cheaper.  Or we could just keep moving this Big Blue Treat Wagon RV around wherever we wanted to.  So. What is more important to us?  The persons are really trying to think about it.  This is an important decision, and the Depression Monster is trying to tell them all of the negative things about this time in our life.  Like why is it taking so long to decide?  Why can’t they figure it out?  And it may just be getting to them.  But this Big Blue Treat Wagon RV is still our house for now.  And in my house?  There is love.  There is happy.  There are pancakes.  There is Brickle.  And me.  In my house.

And when you feel sad and blue
You just come and see me anytime
I’ll be waitin’ for you dear
And your fears you can leave behind
So when you need a little peace of mind

It seems that we all are pretty tired from the last year of traveling.  And we can’t seem to find out where we belong again.  But in my house, I know that there is no rush.  No one is pressuring us but ourselves.  The persons want me and the Sheriff to enjoy all our days. And they worry about us and what we want most of all.  So I wish I had more of a house update this week.  We tried, we really did.  But most of all, we locked that Depression Monster out.  And that was the biggest accomplishment the whole week.  Next week?  We are in Bodega Bay at this RV park until next Friday.  And then? We have no idea.  I do know that we will be leaving the Depression Monster behind wherever we go.  I have nothing but love in my house.  And happy.  And my job as Deputy is to remind everyone in my house, including the Sheriff that we don’t have it that bad.  This is the most exciting time.  Ever.

I’ll be your sugar in the morning
And the sweet stuff you need at night

We request that you complete a survey today!

When you leave your house or your RV, do you trust that the temperature inside will remain safe and that your pet will be as comfy as Digby here? What if the air or the heat breaks? Yeah. I know. It is scary! And we worry about it all of the time when we have to run errands. So our good friends at Pup Alert need our help to get a product out there that will solve this issue. Plus, YOU have a chance to get involved and get to pick your favorite rescues that we visited on this Adventure Of A Lifetime to get a Pup Alert sent to them if their Kickstarter campaign is successful.
Ok. How does this work?

First, take the survey at to pick your top 3 rescues in each region of the United States the we visited.
Head to  and see this amazing product for yourself. One of the options is a “Gets one, Gives one”. Love Pup Alert and want to share with a sponsored local animal shelter? For every one Pup Alert you support, you also can give one to a locally sponsored animal shelter by $80 for the Get, $60 for the give.
Let’s support this company and their goal of not only pet safety, but giving back!

    Oh my precious boys, you did it!! 😀 I knew that you could!! KEEP FIGHTING THAT MONSTER!! Well done, SOOOO many pancakes and peanut butter cookies for the two of you!!! Another pawsome blog! Out of the options, I’m just saying, the Florida one sounds best, only because it sounds more affordable and you’d be closer to family. But I know how much you all love Sonoma. Also, the Europe thing, (GULP) I don’t think should even be an option while you and Brickle are still, I can’t even finish that sentence. And I also know how tired you all are of moving here and there, so….stability and security!!! I love you all so much, so many times in my life, (TOO many to mention!!) the answers just “happen” and things fall into place. And worrying never helps anything, I know, easier said than done, but when I’m losing it mentally I try to breathe and remember that. Enjoy the time you have left, you know you can keep traveling if need be, but it might just all fall into place. Much love, enjoy your weekend, and Digby (tell your brother too!!) to keep gnashing and gnarling at the monster!!! You’re all the best!!! xoxoxo ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

    Do what you need to do right now. Don’t let Depression Monster tell you where to go or what to do. It’s y’alls life not it’s! Do what makes the pups and persons happy and what makes sense. And what’s best for your family. We will be here for you and support your devision regardless. Love you All! 💖💙💙💙🐕🐕💑🏖🏠

    A house with a lot of stairs would probably be too hard for the pups. Take time to think and make your decision. That Depression Monster is vicious, but you can KNOCK him out; just hug a pup; doesn’t even matter which one. Love and kick Depression Monster’s butt.

    Hi guys, I’ve been reading your posts as usual for years. I was wondering if you considered buying land in Florida or California and purchasing a “tiny house”. It’s just a thought but in you watch HGTV or go on line there are some tiny houses that might work. If you go stationary you can get more sq ft
    Just a thought. Hugs and love ❤️🐾
