On the way to Merryland ... Day 9 ....

Hi friends....

It has been a long car ride but Mona, Hana and I are almost to

Meeska's house in Merryland. Meeska is a huskie, loves the snow and cold air vents, and has lots of huskie friends. She is also going to be queen someday. Mona, Hana and I are driving to her house in Hana's red convertable to ask her how to drive a dog sled so that we can go to the North Pole and rescue my best buddy Hershey. He is like a brother to me and I miss him so much. I can't wait to see him.

Our trip has been exciting and emotional. The minute we drove across the state line into Kansas, Mona remembered some movie about there being no place like home. I don't know what she is talking about because I am a dog, do not watch TV, and I cannot get into the movies. My Mom and Dad never go to the movies because my Dad won't go and I can't drive so I can never go to the movies. But Mona remembered this movie about a dog named Toto and so she started to miss her Mom and her Mona Lisa. So I showed her this picture

that my Mom took in Paris and it made her feel better. I am really glad Mona came with me. She is sweet and she brought sweaters and socks and quarters for Hana's car.

Hana is a good driver which is good because neither Mona or I can drive. We have used 5 more quarters or $1.25 and we are almost there. We could have gotten away with 4 quarters but we had to stop and go tinkle a lot today. Stopping to tinkle has cut down on our milage. Hana wishes we had some pee pee pads but I told her that I don't know how to tinkle on them. I just tear them up.

Hana used one of Mona's quarters and called home and found out that her cat friend JB wants to go with us. So Hana made arrangements for her to meet us as Meeska's house. She does not look very brave in this picture but I know from chasing Herhey's brother cat Nixon, that cats can run fast. They are also very sharp, which may come in handy with the polar bears. Mona showed me this picture of a polar bear and now I am even more scared. See how they lay on the ice and wait for little black dachshunds? Yikes!

P.S. I also used a quarter and called home and Mom told me she bought me a new dog bed today. She says it is made of velvet and fake fur and is really really soft and luxurious. She says I will like it. She says she got a great deal on it at Tuesday Morning. She misses me. I miss her too, but I have to continue on my journey. Hershey, wait for me man. I am coming.

I just told Hana that I had pee pads in my suitcase for us girls and that my brudders never liked to use them but they never tore them up because I liked to pee inside but not on the floor. I'll be out of quarters soon if we keep having to stop for potty bvreaks so much. I could teach ya how to use the pee pads if you want.

I can't wait to met the girls. Do you think that Meeska will come with us on the rest of our trip. Maybe we could recruit some of my Huskee friends to come along but then we"d have to rent a bus.

Thank's so much for showing me the real Mona Lisa's picture but I think my Mona Lisa is prettier.

see ya in the morning...I gotta go dream about my Simba...I wish he would come with us.

Hi, Copper!
9 days??? This has been a long trip. I know, Hershey deserves it!
That bear looks friendly! Maybe he can tell you about Hershey!
A new bed?? That is great! BTW are you sleeping in comfy places?
Kisses and hugs

Copper, thanks for pointing out that I am a good driver. Being a driver is an important task.

I think JB will be able to help us out a lot. She is friends with lots of different animals. That will come in handy with the polar bears.

I forgot to bring my doggles with me. Maybe we can pick up some for all of us during our next pee break.

Lorenza, I am sleeping in my little red convertible. I have to sleep in my car because if I leave my car for a real bed, then another dog is gonna take my car and then us rescuers will be stuck in Merryland with no transportation. That wouldn't be good.

Hi Copper,
I am on my way! Hana said I can help too. I have a whole bunch of quarters that mom gave me, so we can use those too. I am friends with all sorts of animals, so I am sure polar bears would my friends too! AND, I can run really really fast. Sometimes i get scared, but if we are all together i should be ok!

Hana said...

Hey Copper, my Mom is so silly. It didn't hit her until just now that this trip is kinda like that story about the girl (in this case a boy) and the tornado (road trip) and how she meets a lot of animals and new friends on the way. Are you sure we're not in a movie?

I think that Copper should travel through Texas on his journey to find Hershey. We have snow here too!

Copper, are you going to go through Texas again, to pick up your nieces? Maybe they would like to get to know JB!

We are glad you are going by Meeska's house. She knows so much and is very brave. If she decides to go with you, she can boss the polar bears because she will be queen of everything and everyone.
