Today is your day,
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!

This is Mom
and her first dog, Misty
on the porch of the house
where we live now.
Mom feels like she has come full circle
and is living out her childhood dreams.

Carrleigh traveled to our house
from Kentucky.
Mom and Dad drove out to get her
and brought her back the next day.
It was about 500 miles from our home.

Piper traveled to our house
from Northwestern Ohio.
Mom and Dad took Lilly
up to get him.
He too had a day long drive to get to his forever home.
Java traveled the longest distance
to get to Rocky Creek Farm.
Mom and Dad had him when they
lived in California.
He traveled 2500 miles to make it
to his home
Rocky Creek Farm.

Mom and Dad
traveled to Kentucky to get Lilly too.
She is a wonderful traveler
and likes to stay in hotels.

Our sister, Kat,
loves to travel.
Mom is always trying to get her to write a book
about the travels of her and her friend, Erin.
They usually come to visit us, every year
during the last week of July.
This year they can't come
and we miss them.
This is a Christmas pict
of Kat and Lilly on Lilly's first Christmas.

We wish you all
"happpy trails and waggin' tails"
There's no place like home.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Sister Kat is stunning... now don't get jealous all you doggies. You are all stunning too, but I'm blown away by Kat's hair color. Do you think I could pull that off?

P.S. I just reread what I wrote and it sounds like Kat is a Nun which I'm fairly certain she is not. BOL

Love the picture of you and your first dog and now full circle back home. A lovely nice thought. Home is where my heart is too. I like the thoughts of being places, but also another quote from one of my favorite movies, "There's no place like home". I'm thinking alot about that movie today for some reason.

I adore your daughter's hair color. The pictures are great!

What lovely photos - you are where you want to be. Home is the best place in the world. Those are very well traveled pooches. D doesn't know where I traveled from - but Paddy went from London to Norfolk and back to London again! So not very far by comparison.

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

How cool that your mom lives in the house where she lived as a child! Piper - I came for northwest Ohio too: Waseon (near Toldeo)? Maybe we were puppy neighbors??

P.S. : I got the "spa" staff to warm up my food for me since I wasn't eating much of it. Pretty smart, eh?

TwoSpecialWires said...

Awww...there is one of those old-timey pictures that Moma likes... the one of your mama as a little girl. There's no place like home. And you are all home. Right where you belong.

That makes us happy.

Your mom's cocker looks just like the one I had growing up in the 50's. Rusty was a sweetheart. Your sister is beautiful. I hope you don't have to wait too long to see her again.

Sue said...

It's so cool that you all came from different places and now you are a family.

Lellyb said...

I have never seen a Wheaten Scottie yet in the UK but they do exist....somewhere ....
