It's Been a Whirlwind

It has been a wild time since leaving Panama City Beach. Mom caught the flu from Grandma so we are a bit behind on the pics. There have been Dora firsts and, of course, more dog parks.


A dog park was found not too far from Grandma's house. On the first visit, they were the only ones there. They still managed to have a good time.


After that, we found lots of dog friends.


Dylan showed Dora how to chew a stick.


Dora proved to be a fast learner.


Dee Dee had so much fun she came home with grass stains.


Despite all the fun, the crew finally had to leave for Red Head. But not before we learned there would be a delay getting Red Head back in the water... sigh. Fortunately, we were able to snag another great Airbnb stay.


But first, a stop at another dog park along the way and...


...a night at the La Quinta.


Dora made her first visit to the boat. It's still in the shed and in quite a mess. She didn't seem very impressed but we'll give her some time.


Everyone is settled into what will be our new home for the next couple of weeks. It's pretty cold but this crew can adapt to just about anything.

Goodbye, Panama City Beach

 

Dylan and Dee Dee arrived in Panama City Beach a little over five months ago and discovered the dog park. 11:15 am quickly became an important time of the day.


The Red Head crew leaves PCB with an extra crew member. Now that's one heck of a souvenir.

The crew has finally departed Panama City Beach, on its way to Grandma’s house and then on to Red Head. It was a long 9+ hour drive not including stops. Probably the longest car ride Dora has ever had. No big deal for Dylan and Dee Dee though.


The backseat was a little tight but the crew settled in pretty well.


 A stop was made at a dog park about half way there.


The crew enjoyed romping with the other dogs. Mom and Dad enjoyed a quiet backseat for the remainder of the trip.


Of course, it couldn't compare with the PCB dog park. The crew said their final good-byes on Monday. It was a little sad for both dogs and people. Cindy is mom to the two German Shepherds.

Wendy tried to arrange a group picture. She's the Golden's mom.

And tried.

And, well, figured that's good enough. It's our time at the dog park that everyone will miss the most. Love you guys!


After an exhausting drive, the crew finally made it to Grandma's house. Dora is learning a whole new set of "No's" but, with the help of Dylan and Dee Dee, she is settling in pretty well. It should be an exciting week with lots of new adventures for the littlest crew member, culminating with Dora arriving at her forever home. Here's hoping she likes the water...
