Mom & Dad went on vacation without me - they are back home now though and was I ever glad to see them!!! I was left alone with the Dweebs and "IT'S Mom" - a fate worse then death in my opinion-- while they were away!
Seems like Dad hasn't seen his brother in 10 years and had a hankering to go see him and meet his niece who he also hasn't seen since she was just a puppy a few months old. She is now an old puppy of 12! Why I couldn't go with them I don't know....I am Dad's puppy and surely his brother would want to meet me too?????
Anyway - they had to drive all the way to some place called TEXAS - to San Antonio. Because Mom can't sit for very long it took them 2 days to drive there. May I point out that I would of been very happy in the car for two days. I hear they had lots of stops and I would surely enjoyed that and all the new smells!
Now Mom had some weird idea that TEXAS would be full of long horn cattle, oil wells and peoples wearing big hats and boots. She can report that she didn't she ANY of that and was somewhat disappointed. She can also report the traffic was TERRIBLE. Basically it was bumper to bumper all the way from Little Rock to San Antanio and it frazzled her nerves and upset her tummy greatly! Now see is she had taken me - her THERAPY dog with her... I would have helped keep her calm but NOOOOOOOOO I got left at home!!!!!
On their way they stopped in Dallas to go have a look around University of Texas - it was all pretty quiet given it was vacation time but Mom was SUPER happy when they stumbled upon an English Pub that served English food. It was called the Dog & Duck Pub and Mom was able to get her beloved Sheperds Pie and Dad got Bangers and Mash. Bangers are an English sausage - not all peppery like the American ones and he loved them.
