I wonder where I am ?

Travelling is very tiring

This was Jojo's very first road trip and she took it all in stride. Dubbed the "Dog with a Human Brain " she does everything but talk . She lets us know when she's sick of the car, thirsty , hungry or needs the bathroom. No matter how many times I take her for a walk she always grabs the leash in her mouth and sings out her pleasure.

She's intrigued by the lizards that go dashing across the lanai and loves to chase them. Egrets that come up on the lawn are targets of her hunting instincts as are squirrels.

Being a small dog strangers love to oooh and awe her and extend their hand toward her face to pet her. I try to warn them but most don't listen until they hear her growl. She doesn't " cotton " to strangers. She also doesn't know her size because she'll take on really BIG dogs. I wish I had a picture of the huge Great Dane that took off when she growled at him ! Jojo thinks she's ten feet tall and bullet proof.


  1. Glad she's travelin' so well, Carolyn. She's very cute (even the catchildren approve, saying if she has a human brain she's obviously more highly evolved than most dogs and is on her way to becoming a cat!)

  2. Thanks, Jodi. Do you have a dog as well or only cats? Jojo is the first dog of mine not raised with cats because my favorite Russian Blue passed on at age 21.

  3. I haven't had a dog for twenty years, my self, and my husband hasn't had one for 11 (we've been together about 9 1/2 years). He hasn't gotten past the point where his insane ex (before she was ex) took his dog to the vet and had her put down while he was out lobster fishing. He never had a chance to say goodbye to Scamper, and he still gets very sad about it all these years later. But mostly we don't have one because I'm away so much. Eight cats aren't hard to care for when you're baching it like LSS sometimes has to, but it's just not the right time for a dog. Though I look at JoJo, and man, is it tempting...

  4. Dogs are great but cats are wonderful, too. I miss my cat. I know it's hard on a dog when you're away which is why we took Jojo along with us. She probably wouldn't be speaking to us after being gone a whole month.
