Postcard from Poppy and a package...

 If you recall from yesterday's post I told you my poppy was leaving me for a short time. 
 Poppy packed his 2 large suitcases and headed down the road. 

You see, Poppy is headed  to his new job. With today's technology he sent us this postcard.
This is from somewhere in New Mexico.  He is going to visit my grandpeeps before putting the car on the "car cruise ship" in California.
On the road in New Mexico

Now I'm going to change things up just a bit, but believe me it will make sense in the end
Schatzie and I received this package a few days ago from our friends at Go Pet .In the package we found this really cool calendar featuring Ty and Buster. They are famous for all their travels and have this awesome website helping peeps traveling with pets. This is going to be very helpful when we make our move in July. The website will help you determine the best places to stay, visit and routes to take when traveling with you special four legged friends. It also lists great places for TREATS--I love treats!
(So go check out this website...your pet will love you for it.)

 Look here's a photo of Ty and Buster...

 So how did we win this wonderful calendar??? Some of you know our friend SUGAR. She used to live on Maui and Go Pet Friendly had a contest. The contest wanted us to identify the place where SUGAR was hanging loose.We knew it was a beach near Black Rock on the west end of Maui---and we won!!

Now back to our move....

Have you guessed where we're going to move??

Here's a hint....

 Yes, we're  moving back to Hawaii....Mom's been working on all the necessary paperwork and vet visits. Schatzie and I are now half way through our 120 day at home quarantine. Last time we went to Hawaii we flew from Denver and it took FOREVER.  Mom and Poppy decided instead of us all flying from the middle of the country, we are going to drive to the coast and get on the big flying machine there. By doing that we won't have such a long time in our traveling kennels--plus we'll get to see more of the country  and you can bet we're going to be using the GO Pet website.

 Guess what island we're going to be living on????
Schatzie and I are thinking of becoming  island tour guides like SUGAR was for MAUI!!
hmmm....there's another hint (it's NOT Maui)

Do you think we'd make good tour guides??

***Special Note***
I'm guessing our friend Ron at Shutterbugs capturing the world just fell on the floor.
 Yes Ron, you're welcome to visit and don't forget your camera :)


  1. What day do your arrive? I will be there the very next day!!!! LOL

    Now I am very envious and jealous!! We just can't seem to make that commitment to go and stay, mainly because of the grand kids.

    If I don't see you before, we will be back on Maui in January, arriving on the 10th and staying for two weeks. Save me some banana bread! (and I ALWAYS have my camera!)

  2. Woof! Woof! WOW! Val and family its exciting. Hope you guys are doing well in your home state quarantine. Did your get help from the clinic we suggested? it's easy once you land on the island. But definitely a road trip first will be soooo much fun. If you are flying from LA they are pet friendly. I hope your choice of airline is good, it is a 4 hour ride. I was very fortunate to ride in the plane so make sure you guys are well hydrated. Wish you all the best on your move. Looking forward on our tours. I do miss the beach and swimming in the ocean ... Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  3. WOW!!! Really!?!? What made you decide?!? Is it the whole "snow in May" thing?
    Safe, safe, safe travels to ALL of you!!!
    Play bows,

  4. Wow - I can't wait to see all your pictures!!!

  5. well, if i could, i'd be tempted to take over your property in nebraska! :) i know your people are excited that you're going back to hawaii.

  6. That is so cool! I can't wait for pictures. Mom and I are already planning our trip to Boston, NH, ME and the rest of MA next year.

  7. Very exciting! My hubs dreams of moving to Maui! (I mean, San Diego is not bad... but he wants to swim in the ocean everyday and he's a cold water wimp! It's too cold for him here.)

    Very smart to drive to the coast and then fly. It's so worrisome to do a long flight with a pup!

  8. I know, I know!!!8-) I know that when we come there next April, you can show me sites I haven't seen before. I know the time will fly by; still praying for the perfect place to live-for you all.
    Hugs, Noreen

  9. Holy cow - you're moving to Hawaii! That is so cool - congratulations. It will be so much fun. Let me know if there's anything we can do to help with the road trip part of the travels, and I'm really glad you're enjoying the calendar.

  10. Ok.. you are moving back about the same time that I am headed out! :( Glad you are moving back to the islands. Hope to talk with you soon!

  11. WOW!! Congratulations on the big decision! What an exciting time. And good luck to your Pops too at his new job!

  12. OMD I am sooooo jealous!!! Heck, I'm even jealous of the road trip!! I found that traveling from Houston to St. Louis was a cake walk with Max! He's an excellent road tripper but the hotels are all soooo much better about pups! How exciting!!! Congrats!!!

  13. WOW! Congrats. And heck yea jealous. No more SNOW lucky. I will be waiting for pictures. And thanks for website. Safe travels.

  14. Oh wow! I envy you! I hope the move goes smoothly and you're there before you know it!

  15. WOWZERS!! Your moving! I bet your mom is looking forward to it. Great idea in driving to the coast the getting on the big metal bird. I will be looking forward to seeing your adventure in getting there and of course being there. Best wishes.

  16. Wow! I'm very happy for you and your babies! How exciting! The girlz will probably be so happy with the warm weather. :)

  17. Wow, I am jealous of you because you will have those beaches! That will be fun and no worries about flying, we did an almost 9 hr flight from Europe and we came out just fine :)
