Last But Not Least: Leo

And the last of the pack is Leo.  I won’t go into a full recount of how he came to join our little zoo but if you want to catch up, it’s all in this post: Then Along Came Leo. I knew he was part of the pack the day after I brought him home.  Usually when […]

You Don’t Know Jack

Continuing with my “getting to know the dogs” series, next up is Jack.  My brother got him as a puppy but when he started having children, he found that he didn’t have time for Jack.  I remember we were sitting on his porch and I told my brother I was thinking of ending my relationship. […]

Piper’s Story

I was kicking a few post ideas around in my head.  Some need some real legwork on my part and as I was planning, I realized that I haven’t really shared any stories about the dogs themselves.  I mean I’ve shared their road stories but nothing about their rather unique personalities.  So each dog gets […]

Back into Canada

Day 11 Starting mileage: 7755.8 When I went to the lobby to check out, I was really surprised that the Knight’s Inn had free breakfast.  It was your standard continental breakfast with very little in the fruit department but that didn’t stop me from making mini wafflewiches with jam.  I actually ate a couple of […]

Crossing North Dakota

Day 10 Starting mileage: 6791.1 I barely slept since I could not stop watching The Last Alaskans and didn’t get to sleep until 2:00 am.  Whoops.  And with trucks moving in and out of the lot next door, I kept getting woken up.  The plan had been to leave early but that didn’t happen.  As usual.
