Good Behavior

Working our way back to Colorado

sunny 100 °F

As we pulled out of San Rafael, CA I kept wondering about Rob and Leah's cat, I never saw it. There were dishes on the floor with cat food and water plus some toys with catnip, but I never saw the cat. I'm still not sure what is a cat, but eventually I'll find out. I sat on Kryss's lap for the first hour or so of freeway driving, but it became so boring I jumped into my bed on the back seat a slept.

We spent the night in Los Angeles, CA and had dinner with friends, Luke and Britta. They're dog lovers so my evening was great. The peeps had a fantastic Italian meal. I had my training vest on and was on my best behavior. I was very quiet, laying at my peeps feet while they had dinner and discussed the state of the world with their friends.

The next morning we headed to Lake Havasu, AZ. In the local Native American Indian language Havasu means "Blue Water". IMG_7840e_1_2_tonemapped.jpgThey were right about that, the Colorado River and Lake Havasu had blue water. We stayed in a hotel right at the water's edge, the boats, wake boarders, paddle boarders and kayakers were floating right past our room. From our room we could also see the London Bridge, it connected the town to the island at Lake Havasu. The bridge was bought by a wealthy businessman from the city of London, England and piece by piece transported and rebuilt in Lake Havasu.IMG_7824e_5_6_tonemapped.jpg The peeps looked at a few homes in Lake Havasu but decided that it wasn't for them. Great spot for a vacation but not to live. We took a sunset cruise around the lake and on the Colorado River. My first boat trip, I stood on the bow and let the wind blow my ears back and ruffle my curls, it was a blast!IMG_7880e_edited-1.jpg

We left Lake Havasu after three days and headed to the metro Phoenix area. Made a stop in Surprise for Kryss's birthday, she got a blank check (whatever that means) to her favorite clothing store and Bob visited the Antigua outlet store. They both were very happy with the results. We left Surprise and went to Cave Creek, AZ to visit Mark and Cindy, old friends. I had met them when I was only six months old, they were really surprised at how much I'd grown. They liked me soooo much that by the time we were leaving they were talking about adopting one of my brothers or sisters.

We drove back to Grand Junction, CO for a few appointments and meetings that the peeps had then off to Carbondale, CO for the 4th of July. I'm going to walk in a parade and strut my independence. Enjoy the Fourth of July and happy tales to you.
