M.I.A.

Not me, my mom. She's been everywhere but home lately it seems. Last weekend she went to West Virginia to move Leah's stuff into her apartment for next year. Whew, that was alot of work. Mom said she had to give up and hire two college boys to help move the furniture up to the 4th floor! No elevator... Mom says she's too old for that! Along the way she waved to our friend Khyra! And the Peregrine Falcons in Harrisburg! Mom also picked Leah up in Harrisburg at her boyfriend's house.
She waved to our friend Chester!And this sign made us think of Mason Dixie! She has a "Line" named after her. What a famous dawg!
On the way home my mom stopped at a place called Sideling Hill in Maryland. She's been looking at it ever since the first trip she and Leah took to visit WVU. Such interesting geology, especially in light of our coffee table project, demands a visit.It was WINDY crossing the bridge over the highway! During the walk my mom picked up a few rocks for me for the table.
As usual, I was not thrilled to have to pose with the rocks...But I do have to admit they look great in the table. Thanks Mom & Leah for thinking about me on your apartment trip!In other news, my mom and Leah go on their big vacation next Friday. I'll be home with Dad, which means extra treats and table scraps! That really helps to make up for missing Mom and Leah. Mom is a little nervous about the trip because she just found out the canyon she is supposed to hike is closed until June 1st because the tribe is concerned about Swine Flu. Their hike is supposed to begin June 4th. We all hope Havasu will reopen as scheduled on June 1st. Mom doesn't know if she should cancel the hotel by the trail head or not. If they announce on the 1st that they're not reopening it will be too late to cancel and she'll lose her money. She and Leah have talked about different things to do if the hike is cancelled but it will be so disappointing if they don't get to see these beautiful waterfalls again. Will all you dawgs and cats please keep your paws crossed for my mom? Thanks!

Checkers said...

i hope your mom and leah get to go to Havasu - the waterfall is amazing - and TURQUOISE - very cool - crossing paws she gets to see it

Chester's Mom said...

How cool it was to see my sign on your blog!! Yep-I saw you waving. Well, really not 'cuz I live about 2 miles as the crow flies away from that sign and there are trees between me and it BUT I really appreciate that you were thinking of me. And you don't even probably know that I was born very, very near that Mason-Dixon sign. Yep, no kidding! That's why me and Mason D have such a special bond.
Mom and Dad have been to Sideling Hill but not me. They thought it was interesting too.
Paws are crossed for your hiking trip. Be safe and have a great time whatever you get to do!

Woofs and appreciating slobbers,
Chester

The swine flu hysteria seems to be winding down. We bet they will re-open!

Hi Pedro! We hope your mom and Leah can go do all the fun things they want to do on their trip. How cool to see all those signs where our friends live, and of course, Mason Dixie's very own sign. And nice posing with the new rocks - the coffee table looks great!

See ya!

Sam said...

Oh Pedro,

Sorry your mom hasn't been around too much. I'm sure things will slow down soon! And at least she's visiting pretty places, as we can see from the pics on the road!

Hector and Lola said...

Pedro!! Hi!! Thanks so much for checking in! Mom is feeling better now, just tired as can be! We've been wanting to blog so badly, but Mom has been super tired and busy, so we haven't been able to. Just today she decided to help us start blogging again. We've missed you guys! We caught up on your blog posts and your coffee table looks great! -Hector and Lola

Momma says that lifting heavy objects is one of the best uses for the young man peoples. That is why we hired Jarrod to help with the barn.

Those hills are kind of strange. Like monster stairs.

Slobbers,
Mango

Hi Pedro... Our Boss hates moving because he says ha has done it more than 20 times in his life... We can't say the same. We have been living in the same house since we were born...
Your table is wonderful now, we love it.
Greetings.

Hey Pedro buddy, I sure missed you too.

Your rock collection is massive now. Is the coffee table almost full?

Goodluck to your mum on her trip. And Be Safe.

Poppy said...

Wow, I like that squashy hill! I have relatives in Maryland, but Mommy has never taken me there. I got to go to the Grand Canyon recently, although we didn't hike down in, cuz dogs aren't allowed! :( I hope your Mom gets to see those pretty waterfalls!

Poppy

Zeus said...

Wow, Pedro, your mom sure has been busy! Tell your mom there's nothing wrong with asking college boys to move furniture - it's their whole purpose in life! I'm sure Leah is going to have a lot of fun at WVU!

On a sidenote, all of the photos of PA highways made the human pet homesick!

Hope her vacation plans go OK! Glad your dad will be home with you. Our humans stay sooo busy. Grr.

Chef said...

I think it's great that your Mama waved to all our friends. And Mason Dixie has a sign named after her? I am so impressed! Anyway, I hope your Mom and Leah get to go on their hike. It looks like a beautiful spot. I'll cross my paws for them.

Can you believe how long it took for my rocks to get to you? It would have been faster if I'd delivered them in person... sheesh.

Bijou said...

Hi Pedro,

I somehow missed this post til now. I hope your mom and Leah get to hike down the canyon. The pictures of it are amazing so it must be totally pawsome in real life. That hill is very cool.

Wags & wiggles,
Bijou

Charlie said...

I'm sure you missed your mom a lot Pedro. That's why you were not very thrilled to pose with the rocks she got. I know I miss my mom if she is gone even for one day!

Love,
Charlie

Huskee and Hershey said...

Good luck to your mom and Leah for the hike.. hope it pushes through and they'd have a great time...

Sharon said...

It is very cool that your mom got to see the towns of so many dogs- and do you know what? I'm from Hagerstown, Maryland! It's really close to Greencastle PA :) Me and Dobby sometimes visit there.

I hope that your hike works out!
