"Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages" --- Thomas A Edison

Hi dear friends,

We're back. Well we haven't gone yet. The Mommy says that patience is a virtue.
I don't know about all that.....I just want to go!!! The Mommy said we can't leave until 1 pm & it's only 9 am. She hasn't even packed yet. She still has to go buy some boots at Academy so so if she steps on any snakes she won't get bit. I'm not worried about any old copperheads, because Roxie, Sammy & Andy's Mommy gots a big gun & she knows how to use it.

Well anyway, the Mommy took me to get a haircut yesterday & while I am still squeaky clean, here's the new me. Da ya like it? It is so much cooler.

Not sure if I've told you guys before, BUT, I don't like to ride in cars and if it's raining I HATE IT!!! The Mommy said it's because, they memory of me trying to doge traffic during a thunderstorm when DROH found me is still strong. I was only 6 months old when I was rescued after all. I just know if it's raining I shiver & whimper when I'm in a car. My Simba just did a post about being afraid of sawdust from being at a pet store before he was rescued by his Mommy and Fat Fat Daddy so I know I'm not the only doggie with bad memories. That's why our quote of the day means so much to us. Why can't people leave people and all other creatures alone? We all just want to live in peace, don't we? We better leave this subject alone because I don't want my old Doofuss to start crying....she does whenever she thinks about me wandering the streets and the stupid hateful peoples that dumped me.

Well anyway, meet Mr. Horsie. I always wanted a horsie but I wanted a REAL one so I could ride it. Oh well, beggars can't be choosers. The Mommy bought me Mr Horsie yesterday after she picked me up from Pets Mart. I always get to have a new stuffie after a haircut as my award for being a good girl.

The Mommy said we are gonna take it on our trip to keep me occupied. It won't work.....last time we went to visit my friends.....I kept saying "are we there yet" and after 2 hours we was there. I wish we could just sprout wings and fly there!!
I want to go now!!
Well since we can't now, the Mommy wants me to play with my horsie, I do like Mr Horsie, but I decided to just take a nap until it's time to go. See ya when we gets back Sunday.
Love, Kisses & Huggies to all.....Mona & the Mommy too!!

You look really nice with your new haircut. Sorry to hear about your fear of riding in cars, especially when it's raining. Hopefully in time your bad memories will fade and you'll learn not to fear riding in cars.

Hey Mona, has your Mom ever tried to give you Melatonin when you travel? It helps to calm me down during storms. I HATE storms!!!

You look very spiffy in your new hair-do. Love the horse. I'm sure it's not as smelly as the ones our girl hangs around.

Oh Mona, car and rain bring back bad memory. I'm so glad that DROH found you! The image of a little lonely dog trying to dodge traffic during thunderstorm after being dumped on the street makes me cry.
That bad time is over, you are loved, you and the mommy happy together, that's a happy ending.
Nice haircut, Mona. Enjoy your trip.
