One day at our new home by the sea, I could hear M.O.M. calling me throughout the house. But I was very tired and didn't respond to her real fast.
Finally she walked into the living room and smiled when she spotted me in the closet. That was just the day before we headed back on the road to return to our home in the mountains. She told M.O.D. that she was certain that I was just worn out from all the driving, new smells, new dogs and new people, running on the beach and not sleeping in my own bed. Well, she did bring my bed with us but it just isn't the same in a different house.
The next day we headed back on the road to the home in the mountains and we decided somewhere along the way that we were just to tired to go any further. We stopped at a cute little Motel that we have stayed in several times in all our adventures to find a new home.
The Motel parking lot looked like they had no vacancy but M.O.D. went to the office anyway. We were very fortunate that they had just one room available...one with 2 queen beds. We took the room anyway and quickly made ourselves comfortable in the in front of the television to catch up on the world.
M.O.M. and M.O.D. both started laughing when M.O.M. saw me curled up on the 2nd bed making myself at home! Gosh, it felt so good to stretch out and have the bed all to myself.
Ahhh, now that's a dogs life!
We have been lucky with finding Motels that I can stay in. This one welcomes pets and doesnt' charge extra. One in Cle Elum Washington wanted $25 to let me stay in the room..dad said no..that was too much and the desk clerk finally agreed to $12. What a waste of money!
One of M.O.D.'s friends told us recently that a motel in Northern California charged the $125 for a one night stay for their dog.
M.O.M. has said that she and M.O.D. will never leave me alone in the car at night in a strange town...or anywhere else.
Oh I love my M.O.D. and M.O.M.
p.s...M.O.M. actually did make me get down off the bed....she said we needed to respect the Motel owners so they would always let pets stay here with their owners.
