the pup that travels

We visited our youngest son for 5 days last week. This sweet dog, my very own pup  is a travel trooper. Five hours in the car was just peachy. Stops every 90 minutes with a walk about the picnic area, a pee and a slurp of water was easy. The added plus was  the the joy of meeting other dog lovers for a quick greeting made this trip a joy.
He seemed to remember how to move with grace and oh so slowly through the huge revolving door at the hotel. Up to the 20th floor ! and just super in the hotel room. At our sons apartment  he knew how to lay down on his own mat as we watched one of the play off games (hockey, natch) as we cheered for the city we were in.  He ran in huge forest,this time no snow!  sat with us for a late lunch on an outdoor patio next to a lake. There were two other dogs there and all behaved with impeccable social grace. um, better than some humans?  It was great to have the company of a sweet dog.

Oh Hawk, the two of you would have a blast! I will say he is one of those silly black labs that would lick your mouth/face etc (as seen on your blog).Lessons would have to taught :)
Your human mum would adore him, the cuddles would be super sweet.
Today is slow for us, as pups neuter was done yesterday.
He,as was said by the vet tech, "very brave".
I was so proud of his courage. When out and about we often drop into different vet office's-just for a visit and to ask to have him weighed.
His fear is nil and one or two treats later he leaves a very happy boy!
Thanks for dropping by curly coated boy!
