A Black Dog heading North

It’s raining. And I mean it is RAINING. Like all the time. What can I say, I’m just a little dog, but what the hell were mom and dad thinking by heading north and back to Oregon? I mean, it’s raining! And cold. And there is no beach to run on every day. I guess you can tell by my tone a lot has happened since my last update.

Dogs on the Road Interview ~ Taquita of Home on the Highway

Next up in my interview series is another rescue pup, Taquita from Home on the Highway. My mom and dad have followed her parents, James and Lauren, trip down the Pan Am highway for several years now. We were all thrilled to hear that they had decided to rescue a little pup they found abandoned and alone along a remote stretch of Mexican highway. Here are her thoughts on life on the road.

Lake Living

Well I have to say,  we are now in a place that is nearly doggie perfection. Mom and dad keep talking about how beautiful it is. Well, I don’t really know, or care, about that… but I can attest to the fact that the weather is perfect! Sunny and comfortable during the day, a little bit of rain most afternoons, and sleeping weather at night. What more could a dog ask for? Well, a lot more.. but first, let me tell you about the trip here!

Heading to Cooler Climates

Well, I apologize for how long it’s been since I posted. You just can’t imagine how much traveling we’ve done! Mom and dad knew I wasn’t so happy with the heat and humidity down at the beach (neither were they) so we headed to the hills. We have been ALL OVER. We visited quite a few pueblo magico towns, mom just loves those places. I like it because when we go into town I get to wear my necklace that Dave & Anne found for me!

Apartment Life in Puerto Vallarta

Well, my circumstances have changed YET again!

After leaving the United States, mom and dad drove us back into Mexico and I could not have been happier. Mexicans are so much nicer about letting me go everywhere with my family AND I get to go on all the beaches, not just stinky dog beach like in San Diego.

Finding my Way

I have been having a bit of a tough time this two weeks. Porter was my family, my pack, and with him gone we are all sad. Mom and dad don’t cry all the time, anymore, but I know they wish he was still with us.  Being a dog, I don’t fully understand it all, but I do know my little buddy was really sick and now isn’t with us anymore. I’m so glad we got to spend that last day together though, and that mom and dad let me be in the room when he went to sleep so I could touch his nose and tell him goodbye in my own way. Now I am finding my way on my own.
