Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora have been living with the changes caused by the Coronavirus. They are doing their part where they can but this “social distancing” thing has them a little confused. Are their “6 feet” calculated in the same way as “dog years”? Does that make a foot enough?

In reality, things have changed mostly for the better with the Red Head crew. They are enjoying even more time with Mom and Dad than usual. The crew never could figure out why they would ever be left alone.

Unfortunately, their Bahamas trip has been canceled. Red Head will be staying in a Key West for now until the situation becomes more clear - if it ever does. For Mom and Dad it’s a very different place as this lively destination turns into a ghost town.

The crew’s schedule is unchanged - up at 6 am, breakfast, short nap, trip to the dog park and a walk, spending the rest of the day guarding against pirates (plus a few more naps), supper, and then cuddle time with a Mom and Dad until bedtime.

No worries, we’re all doing just fine. The Red Head projects list is steadily shrinking. There are lots of new recipes to try - Mom has learned how to make seitan. Dad has been tearing up the guitar. There are books to read, movies to watch, and kids to play with. While it may not be the winter we had planned, we are healthy and have the resources we need. With so many facing so much worse, we feel extremely fortunate. Looking forward to the good times ahead.

The weather is just not looking good for a Bahamas crossing. The Red Head crew hasn’t quite given up yet. Meanwhile, Dylan and Dora cuddle up while the winds howl.

Still aDORAble

It’s been two years since Dora came into our lives. Since that day nothing has been quite the same. But wouldn’t change it for the world. We love you, sweet pea!

Goodbye, Izzy, Until We Meet Again

Sadly, this morning was Dora and Izzy’s final romp here at Key West. Izzy’s parents are heading out tomorrow to visit the west coast of Florida.
The girls have certainly had a great time tearing up the dog park every morning and old man Dylan enjoyed watching them. Dora is gonna miss her BFF. We’ll see you again, Izzy, hopefully real soon. Safe travels.
