Road trip! Wednesday, May 26, we packed up and headed South. We generally do not travel on holiday weekends. We live at a vaca-destination so why fight traffic and crowds on those busy times. But we have been itching to visit a hiking buddy of ours we meet on my 2015 AT thru-hike and his girlfriend. The only weekend we had free was this weekend which is Memorial weekend.

I guess that is a good thing. No tears, no accidents, no destruction in or out of the house. Just more great puppy stuff and improving behavior. Last week we introduced two new members to our household, cats, one kitten and one adult. After a weekend of high stress from everyone,
Monday: What a chillin' day. Not too long ago, we had psycho puppy. Today you wouldn't even know it was the same dog. The day started out making him get out of bed, his crate. He slept through the night from 8:00pm the night before until 7am this morning. Our morning routine was the same; he went out and did his business and breakfast.
