I Can’t Go For That

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  Let me be the first to welcome you back…again…to this Florida place!


Thanks to you cheering us on, we crossed that state line yesterday.  We could not have done it without every single one of you telling us that we could do it.  We read every comment.  We felt the love.

I, I ‘ll do anything
That you want me to do
And I’ll do almost anything
That you want me to, ooh

But…we are still a ways from our hopefully…final stop in Fernandina Beach. Will we find a house there?  We just don’t know.  But it is worth a try, right?  We just hope that the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV agrees with us.  It doesn’t seem to have a lot of energy lately.  It doesn’t seem to want to move very fast, and it keeps trying to scare us.  Is there such a thing as a hospital for an RV?

Easy, ready, willing, overtime
Where does it stop
Where do you dare me
To draw the line

We kind of understand why the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV is tired.  If not for it, we could not have visited all of the 48 rescues and met so many of you.  But we are not ready to give up on it.  It deserves to make it to Fernandina Beach to rest a bit too.  I won’t accept it quitting.  We aren’t going to leave it behind.  We leave no one behind.

I can go for being twice as nice
I can go for just repeating
The same old lines
Use the body
Now you want my soul
Ooh, forget about it
Now say no go

You see, yesterday, we were more than a bit nervous about driving over so many bridges and breaking down.  But since Sheriff Brickle arrested Louisiana, we decided that we should probably make an exit from the gators before they woke up.


Boy Person may have fixed the Big Blue Treat Wagon for now, but we know that is is hanging on by a thread.  And duct tape.  We feel like we all are, especially Boy Person’s frost bitten nose.  Wow, the last two weeks have been rough.On Boy Person’s face. Bahahaha!

But none of us look any better. Girl Person’s shoes are falling apart, our harnesses need the swamp mud washed off, and we are well..looking pretty pitiful after the past few weeks.  Except Brickle.  He told me to write that. And I’m too tired to argue about it.


And so we are going to take a few more days to get to where we can start looking for a house without wheels.  We have to catch our breaths, run all of us thru a car wash, and make a plan.  We haven’t really told the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV any of this yet, because we don’t want it to be sad. And we don’t want it to quit.

I can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
I can’t go for that

It deserves for us to love it as long as we can.  And who knows.  If we don’t find a house for a bit, we may be loving it for a little while longer.  But we have to make it healthy again. It just needs a few words of encouragement and maybe some work from Boy Person.  I don’t know how much energy any of have left yet.  But we aren’t ones to give up.  No.  We can’t go for that.

You all may not have been with us in this Big Blue Treat Wagon during our journey, because, well, you would have ran out from the dirt and dog hair.  But we felt like you were with us.  And we hope that you aren’t going to go anywhere, because we aren’t.  This is our first stop in this Florida place and we will be here in Pensacola until Friday.  Then we head to Falling Waters State Park in Chipley, Florida for a few days. After that, we will be near Jacksonville (which is next to Fernandina Beach).  If we can make it.  It may not seem like a lot of hours to most people, but for this RV, it seems like we have to go to the moon.  Sometimes, we think that would have been way easier.

Oh, we are still worried that we won’t find a house.  But we have to take it one step at a time, right?  Sometimes, life can be very overwhelming.  Sometimes, when my dinner is five minutes late, I feel like it will never come.  But then, when it does, I realize it was late because Girl Person made it extra good that night.  And that is what we hope is happening to us now.  For each step of this journey, you have been there, and telling us that it would all work out.  And we hope that by dragging our feet and our Big Blue Treat Wagon, that we will make it.  But don’t forget.  This is just the start of a new chapter for 2 Traveling Dogs.  And this blog and Facebook page are not going anywhere.  I can’t go for that.

You’ve got the body
Now you want my soul
Don’t even think about it
Say no go

    Yippee I’m so happy that you made it to that Florida place! I prayed real hard and I’m still praying that you will get where you need to go safely. My Mom always said “everything happens for a reason”. The trip of a lifetime was tough on all of you. I have to tell you that through all of my heartbreak and health issues, you were my guiding light. I saw places that I never would have without you sharing with us. In my heart you are part of my family so I say thank you for all you’ve gone through to share your journey with us. I know you will find your special place and will share with us! So…. rest a little, get your bearings, talk nice to the Big Blur Treat wagon and you will find your special place. I’m sending you love and hugs and blessings. Every morning I look at my fridge and see the lovely postcard that you sent me from Kansas and I smile. Hugs and love and blessings 🐾❤️🐾❤️☘️☘️☘️☘️

    One step at a time. You weren’t sure the Big Blue treat wagon would make it , but it did. You will find a house, maybe not right away, but if you keep looking you will find it.
