Today was one of the first days in my travels where I woke up and thought the scent I was giving off was perfect! As I was sitting there itching my ears Papa picked me up and put me in the room where the indoor waterfall happens; not my favorite place but I always get good rubbins after.
Can I come out yet?
Papa seems to enjoy putting me through this… Humiliating…
They put this stuff in my ears that they say “cleans” them. What does that even mean cleans? You mean when you take all the smells away I’ve been working on for what seems to me like forever? I use my smell to introduce myself to other dogs and let them know that I, Guillermo, was there. Either way as soon as my humans are done bathing me, I go to work trying to get my scent back from all the places I’ve stored it around the Magic House.
Yeah get in there.
I’m not sure I how I feel about this “bath” it seems silly and I usually just go to my happy place while in there. Today my happy place was different and I thought of the good times we all had when we started this adventure. There were five of us who started this trip and now we are down to four. Mama’s brother Jarred was with us and we seem to have lost him. For some reason though Mama and Papa don’t seem too worried. I looked for him for days but he never turned up. I can still smell him. I miss him…
Our trip to Pismo Beach, California was a great time and I was able to get out of the truck and get to know my surroundings (I feel better about myself when I get to know areas, it makes me feel more confident to know where I am).
Can I come out?
Where should we go Gary?
Jarred calls me Gary. I decided it was time to start doing some investigating around the area while my humans followed.
Something was here. It went that way!
Eventually I led the way and found a beautiful area and a big flight of stairs down to the sand.
I have to get down there!
Come on Mama! This way!
Jarred somehow beat me down there and I was happy to get to him and play on the beach. We searched around together.
How did you beat me down here?
He got a little crazy and got very close to the water I tried to warn him and even ran back to tell Mama and Papa but no one listened.
Hey! Don’t you know this water tries to attack you? We have to get back!
I’m worried Jarred is being crazy! I’ll go check on him again.
After I was finally able to get him away from the water we found a big rock that was all different shades of grey (I’m color blind you see) that looked like a dragon head to the humans.
This mighty dragon seems to be sleeping.
Jarred began tempting fate and all I could do was watch while he climbed up the beast. It was very exciting!
He jumped on its back!
I think is starting to stir you have to get down!
I think it moved, get out of here!
False alarm, Jarred is OK but we were both very startled!
Did you see that dragon Papa?!
After all the excitement we’d all worked up an appetite and left the Dragon beach to head over to the Splash Cafe for their world famous clam chowder. They didn’t give me any but it smelled amazing in the sourdough bread bowl and they seemed very happy while eating it and ignoring me.
Fair well water. We will do battle again, one day…
With full bellies and far less energy it was time to move on from Pismo Beach.
So here I am sitting in the Magic House “clean.” I was given a new ball and I am very tired now. Stay tuned. Where will Guillermo’s Travels lead us? Only the Magic House knows.
Time for Sleep…
