Joey has been coughing quite a bit, so I called and the clinic was able to get him in to be checked for Kennel Cough. It is a mild case - no treatment necessary but I need to keep him away from other dogs for now. He has no other issues, so I’m glad I got him in and we can start with a clean slate. Every day he becomes more settled with his new lifestyle.
This journal got its start back in 2005 when we started full-timing in a motorhome and traveling around the country, visiting with family and friends and seeing the sights of America. The focus has changed through the years as we became more stationary and no longer travel by motorhome. Since October of 2018, it is the story of the journey of Tom and I and me flying solo again.

I picked Charlotte up from a sleepover at her friends house on Friday and we got to have a sleepover together. We walked to the Pet Store so I could get Joey a Kong toy to entertain him. After his walk, we headed to the outlet mall to shop for a birthday gift for Charlotte. We put Joey in his crate and he started yapping as soon as the door was closed, so we waited a bit and it stopped after about 5 minutes - a behavior that I will have to work on. Neither of us were very impressed with the mall - it was messy and not much that she was interested in, so I told her I would get her a gift card from Target. She did get some earrings at Claire’s. Jill picked her up yesterday morning, as they were going to the State Fair to see a concert that night. This is how she got herself ready in the morning (not sure if the makeup is parent approved - I have a feeling that it will be redone). I think it’s a bit much for an (almost) 11 year-old. The shirt cracked me up - Ben has held onto it for at least 25 years.
