Back across Phoenix

Today was a medical day, as I had to re drive out to Western Phoenix, to the town of Goodyear!  The procedure didn't take too long, and we returned.

The day was mostly overcast, and remained in the upper 60's.   We are approaching a cooler period in the mid winter, and today is the solstice or shortest day of the year, so from here on out, we can expect that longer days will make for better weather.  Well that's a plan anyway.

We didn't do much else after we returned home, other than go after some lunch, and hang around the RV.  A down day for sure, but it is almost 50 miles to where we went, and it makes for quite a commute.

On Biscuits day, she managed to get her mouth on the harness between her legs.  And in the process, she hooked her sharp baby teeth into the harness strap.  She couldn't get free, and began to scream, in the loudest yelp we have ever heard.  Loyce took the harness off for a while, but before we left, we put it back on her.

She went with us of course, but was forced to stay in the car while we were inside.   And naturally she was all tangled up in the stuff in the back seat when we returned.  It wasn't dangerous to her, but she was pretty much unable to get free of one of Loyce's bags that was back there.

As is always the case, we have to watch her almost all the time, because she gets into trouble so quickly.  Perhaps we will have to take the crate with us in the future, but it is bigger than the back seat of the car.  Always another problem!

Tomorrow and Wednesday, we are to have more rain again, so that may cramp our style on more motor scooter riding!

Retired Rod


  1. Biscuit sounds like a little pack of dynamite! I know what that's like!!

    I'm with you on the soltice, already looking forward to a little bit more daylight in the next few days!

  2. Sounds like we are going through a lot of the same things. Rusty wants to go constantly. He has already been fixed, that didn't help, so guess it is something we will have to put up with till he gets older. Take care.

  3. Maybe you can pick up a smaller 'traveling crate' at that swap meet, for when you have to leave her in the car.
    And/Or, have her on a seat belt harness so she cannot get to the other side of the seat. Dogs have been known to smother, or hang themselves, if they get their heads in plastic bags.

    Anyway, for her, and your safety, she shouldn't be riding with out one or the other.
