Road Trip to see the Duckies

This weekend Jonny Justice and I went on a road trip.
 We went to a beautiful place that smells really good.















The next day, after breakfast and a short hike, we went to the River Ranch Lodge for the Truckee Duckee Derby.   We picked out a good spot where we could see the race.















Jonny and I were the Pets of Honor and a whole lot of people and dogs came to see us.  















After the little rubber duckies had their race, we met the big granddaddy duckee.  He was really big and yellow.













Then we went on stage and all the people clapped their hands and smiled.  I'm not sure why, we didn't do any of our amazing tricks or anything.  Then we autographed two of the magazines with our cousin Sweet Jasmine on the cover.  My paw print is the one at the top, and Jonny's is underneath.  Sorry, I got some ink on your face, Jasmine!

 
We met so many people who were so nice and we worked really hard to say hello to as many people as possible.  My people said we both did a really good job.  We were very very tired after it was all over.  


Thank you to all the nice people who invited us on our trip, Bill Jensen, The Humane Society of Truckee/Tahoe and all the really nice people who work  there, and Alvina and her nice lady German Shepherd at the Holiday House Hotel where we stayed.

There is nothing like seeing these dogs thrive. Their sweet pittie faces are so loveable. I wish I could take them all. Good to know they are doing well!
