Dolly and Franklin's (and Rob's) Trip to Mass.

Taking a break from the road.
I (Rob) went to Massachusetts with Dolly and Franklin,while Tom and Sprite stayed behind. (Tom has no vacation time yet). I visited my mother to help her with some things and was gone 4 days. It took 10 HOURS to drive up, and 10 hours to drive back!  - I was there 2 full days, and also got the chance to help hold signs for my younger brother's local political campaign. - those pictures will be posted tomorrow, with a video! Meanwhile here are some pictures of Dolly and Franklin's adventures.

Yay! Finally getting to NYC!

Dolly enjoyed the entire back seat of the car.

Stopped at Bridgeport, CT City hall where daddies got their marriage license.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
