Wish You Were Here

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Today is it. Today is the last day for us in this Grand Canyon place. You know that I am happy about that. If I never have to look over into that black hole again, it will be a day too soon. I don’t care if Sheriff Brickle changed my name to Fred this week in order to protect my identity, and therefore arrest me since I arrested the Grand Canyon.

That is behind me now. And I will leave the ohs and ahhhs and appreciation to the persons. They can love this place as much as they want to.

But we are on our way to a Nevada place, the #42 state on our Adventure Of A Lifetime today. At least we are going to start heading that way. We will get half way today and then start driving again on Monday. It is going to take awhile to get there. But every mile brings me further and further away from this scary place. Goodbye Grand Canyon. It was real. Real scary. And there are no pancakes in that big hole, just a big ol’ plate of terror.

At each and every place that we have went to on this trip, the persons remark that they wish some of their family or friends could experience it too. They often think about how their grandparents would have liked certain things about it. They often think about how some of their past furkids would have liked the places that they were exploring. Or even how some of our fans would like to be there too. It is true that half the fun of seeing a new place is telling others about it. I know I feel like that when I have an excellent plate of pancakes that was better than the last. I want to tell others about it so that I can get more.

It is true that even small things in our day are worth telling people we love about them. Because tomorrow, you may not be able to tell them. Girl Person misses her Granny Person every day. She often goes to call her and realizes that she cannot anymore. She misses how she would have worried about us being at the Grand Canyon. She misses how much she would have liked that elk that we saw at the campground.

She also misses her even when she does the laundry. So although it doesn’t take a special place like the Grand Canyon to miss her, it makes her miss her more.

So if you have someone that you love telling your day’s adventures or lack of adventures to, don’t take it for granted. It is certainly as special as the Grand Canyon to have a someone you can talk to.

And so for everyone who wishes that they could have been with us this week at this place considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world, we hope you will still want to be with us when we visit an unknown forest. Or a random trail. Because every day is special when you can share it with the ones you love. And when you tell them about your day, make sure you tell them that they are special too. And for those fans that we love, make sure you look below this blog today. We have a special gift for three fans. We love you all.

If You Really Love Me, Won’t You Tell Me?

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. I am feeling wacky today! Probably because we are headed to somewhere called Waco in that Texas place. Wacky in Waco. Someone has probably used that job before. Well, good for them, I am the first pancake loving dog to use it. The joke is on them just like maple syrup is on my breath. Plus, Sheriff Brickle just told me my joke is bad. He had to get in one more arrest before we left Oklahoma today.

It is a strange feeling the day that we leave each state on the Adventure Of A Lifetime. Girl Person tends to overthink and I guess that is why her and Sheriff Brickle are so alike. On the day we leave, she has to say goodbye to everything she loved in the state and tell the state that in case we don’t ever see it again, we love it.

Life is short. For people and dogs. We never really know if we will see something or someone again. I feel that way every time I drive by a pancake restaurant or have a stack of pancakes, or smell pancakes. Or think about pancakes. I can’t bear to think I will never gaze upon them again, so I have to tell them how much I love them. Do you do that with things or people you love in your life too?

For this Oklahoma place, we are saying our goodbyes. Goodbye to the fresh air which tended to almost blow us away, but made us laugh at the same time. We say goodbye to the wonderful smelling wood we burned on the campfire. We thank the trees where that wood came from. And we thank the campground in Sulphur for giving us a peaceful place to just be. Just “being” is sure underrated. We also thank Oklahoma for their beautiful springs and introducing us to the Native American ways and food. And we also have to thank the animal rescuers we visited at Paws N Ada in Ada, Oklahoma. We had a wonderful week. (Catch the full video HERE)

We hope those that live in this Oklahoma place thank it every day. You have much to be proud except there could be more pancake places in my opinion. But that would go for every state so far. At least you have fry bread.  Ok, Oklahoma.  Fry bread is really pancakes in disguise for me.  I love you.  I’m telling you.  I really love you.

 

We don’t know if we will ever be back in this Oklahoma place. We don’t know if our travels will ever lead us here again. So in case this is the last time we see you Oklahoma, we thank you and tell you that we love you. Thank you for being here. I do not thank you for that man driving around in a surrey though that sings everything. If he decides to leave, call me. Sheriff Brickle does not like him either. They both think everyone is in love with them.  They pretty much don’t need anyone to tell them so.

 

We have a very long drive today. Very long. Texas is as big of a state as Brickle’s attitude, and we are splitting our time up in between Waco and Texas Hill Country and the wine region. The persons have also informed me that we will be taking a few days off to get us back on schedule and recoup a bit. So here we come, Texas! We have a visit planned with the Humane Society Of Central Texas and we can’t wait to meet them and their adoptables like Gingerbread here. share3.jpg

So here we go to Texas! I hear that the stars at night are big and bright.

I have a hat. I have some boots. And I am ready to go. Let’s do this!

You are saying baby
It’s time to go
First the feeling’s alright
Then it’s gone from sight
So I’m taking out this time to say
Oh if you really love me won’t you tell me
Oh if you really love me won’t you tell me
And if you really love me won’t you tell me

We love you, Oklahoma.
