Home: where everything and nothing changes

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before – we’re on the road. For the third time in as many months the pups and I are cruising east on Route 80 towards New Jersey. The drive’s not much fun, but the reward is some great quality time with family and friends. For me, visits home remind me how much has changed in all our lives. But at the same time I’m reminded nothing’s changed when we come together to celebrate life. Seems the pups would agree.23.1

This is how Penny and Eko spent their first meeting at my mom’s house. Despite numerous changes, every subsequent meeting on the foyer is just about the same

23.2

Home used to be a place where a couple of small mammals play-stalked each other

23.3

And now it’s a place where a herd of large mammals bite each other in the head. Ah, no place like home!

23.4

Some things change, but the location of the fireplace never does

Family, friends, food and fire await! Keep heart fellow holiday travelers, we’ll get there…eventually.

Travel safe everyone, catch you tomorrow from NJ.

    Safe journey to all of you!

  4. You are a trooper! I can’t imagine driving so far and so often – however, I get why you do it instead of flying. Puppies are family too!

    There is no place like home as they say! It is always a safe place to be filled with memories.

  6. Smiling! Safe travels and happy holidays.

  7. Cathy & Banjo says:

    Safe and happy trails (and tails) to you and your pups! Any trip with dogs is a good one!

  8. Hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family. Drive safely!

    I still can’t get enough of the pics of Penny when she was so small, and always had that “what the heck is going on” look on her face, concerning all these much larger dogs.
    I guess she really wasn’t ready for such a large family, but all the dogs made it happen. They welcomed her and helped guide her. I’m sure she’ll still be looking around for her old friend, Dutch. But, Eko will help her get through it. Have a wonderful Christmas filled with memories and love.

  11. I love when everything changes while everything stays the same…. Change is good. Same is good, too.

    Love and licks and Merry Christmas,
    Cupcake

  12. Merry Christmas and have a safe trip there and back.

  13. Have a safe trip and a great time with your furmily. I always love to read about your mom’s pup. Have a wonderful Christmas all!

    Happy travels my friends. Be safe and have a flight time. XOXO – Bacon

  15. Have the very safest of trips to you and your fur-buds. Have a furry and bright howliday! 🙂
