Certifiably Insane?????

Well, we're getting ready for our road trip -- Christmas gifts have been shipped to St. Louis, early Chanukah gifts have been exchanged, human and dogs cards have been written and mailed, our travel stuff is laying out on the bed in the guest room, we have been newly furminated, the pet- friendly stops have been reserved, and Dogdad has a list of Sonic drive-ins along the way... BUT, folks, we want to know, are our Mom and Dogdad certifiably insane to want to leave our lows in the 60s highs in the mid-seventies weather to travel to what you see on the map below???

Does any one know of a good lawyer -- Scruffy, are you there???

Anyway, despite the promise of shivery pit stops, we are very excited at our adventure, which will start on Wednesday, and we'll be blogging whenever we can.

Before we go, however, we want to thank everyone for the fun, creative, wonderful Christmas cards. So far the tally, as expected, is Mom's business - 5, Mom and Dogdad's personal cards - 3, dogs - 47. Are they pathetic (and, as we mentioned, certifiably insane) or what???????

Lots of holiday love!!! Stay tuned!!!

Jake and Just Harry

You don't have to publish this comment since it won't relate to dog topics. I just wanted to thank you for the compliments on my genealogy blog. I've been working like a mad dog on it to "give" the site to family for Christmas.

Uh, Mom says yep. Definitely certifiable!! Have fun and bundle up. Happy Chanukah to y'all!!
Drive ever so carefully.

The Thundering Herd said...

We think it is perfectly logical to leave that sweltering weather for the comfortable temperatures of winter, but that might have something to do with who we are.


We love the cold weather. Then of course Collies came from the England - Scotland area.

Stanley said...

Hey, buds!

I suggest you sleep with your sweaters on and yourselves arranged booty-to-booty to keep the nether regions nice and toasty!

Personally, I can't wait to see what you think of cold weather and possibly SNOW! Oh, MAN! I LOVE the stuff, and I hope you do too.

Thanks for your card! My girl is still working on our Christmas/Chanukah cards, so it should be waiting for you when you get back from celebrating!

Goober love & traveling smooches,

You don't know insane! I live in a nuthouse! If it weren't for all the cool snow out there and the good food, I swear I would escape this place. At least when i jump the fence and go see the old man behind our place, I get a chunk of ham or something.

Homer said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch,

Joe Stains said...

Omdog dudes, I am worried for ya! I can't take this cold weather!

Sophie Brador said...

Be careful on the road boys, and be prepared to take over driving when the going gets tough.


William Tell said...

Enjoy your trip, and if you pass close to that "16" on the map in Oklahoma, stop by and visit! Brrr!!!

Happy Tails,

Katherine and Pippa said...

Hope you are having a great and not too cold holiday.

Yes, I think they are definitely certifiable.


Behr Behr said...

Yikes! Are they trying to freeze you?
Ok, here's what you do: every chance you can, shiver and cry and act like you are totally dying out in the cold. Then they will feel sorry for you and maybe give you warm blankies, a place by a fireplace, and extra cuddles and snacks. Works for me!

Have fun on your trip anyhow

Behr Behr :)
