Bad Internet. Down.

Big Aire lovin' to everyone who has written to me sending good vibes for my trip and move to Portland! I made it!!!

Mom and dad are crazy. We drove here in one day from Los Angeles. That's 15 hours in the car. Yes, it's completely insane. But honestly, the kitties were pretty miserable in their carriers and hey, since I wasn't the one driving, it was fine with me. Lots of walkie breaks and yummy rest stops so I wasn't really complaining.

So these are the first - and albeit, crappy - photos of me in my new backyard. Well actually, they're photos of me waiting outside the back door to get back inside to see what all of the fuss is about. Lots of boxes have been opened, stuff is flying around, and ohmydog is there space to run! The kitties are busily finding places to hide, and I'm busy "helping" dad assemble things.

You guys all told me how much fun a backyard is and I really couldn't appreciate it until I had my own. I've got grass, a shed, some concrete, and the all-important mudhole in which to practice my digging. This is HEAVEN!

Mom thinks she's funny teasing me with my surfer-dude stuffie. See how I feign no interest? That's for her own good...


Ok mama, stop playin'... GIMME THAT STUFFIE

More photos to come - we still do not have internet at our house, hopefully the oh-great-bringer-of-internet will be arriving sometime today.


To Aire is Divine

Smooches all around, especially to the kitties and the drivers! Stinkin' glad you all made it and that you're romping in a yard of your own. (I'm still waiting for your new address so I can send my pee sample to christen the grass.)

Looks like you're busy overseeing the settling in and all, but I'm SO excited for you guys!

Goober love & smooches,

Yeah, you've got a backyard Bogie, I'm soooo jealous. Are you loving it? You'll have to tell me all about it, so I can dream of the day when I get my own yard. I'm so happy you made it through the 15 hour car rid. You are a trooper! Can't wait to hear all about your new digs and your new town. I'm so glad you are safe and happy!

Your pal,
