Happy: My First Road Trip!

Hi!… I'm Happy!… I'm always happy!... That's why they call me Happy!

While my friends and former pack mates at SP Kennel were running -- and very nearly winning! -- the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race last week, I went on a journey of my own: My first road trip!

Macgellan's young friend Jake came out to the Pacific Northwest for his spring break from school (whatever that is) and we took a road trip around the Olympic Peninsula. Our first stops were at beaches, where I got to see the ocean for the first time, take nice long walks and pose demurely.

After driving around each day, we spent the nights in different dog houses. Since this was my rookie road trip, the guys did a lot of goofing around with me, including adjusting my new scarf so that they said I looked like a "Babushka Dog"! That didn't bother me at all, though, partly because I'm such a good sport, but also because I got lots of really great lap time!

Jake is learning to drive, so Macgellan let him have plenty of time to practice. I really enjoyed the drives, including when I couldn't keep my eyes open. Road trips are really exhausting!

So, now you can add "Road Trip Veteran" to my rapidly growing list of credentials. Macgellan said I was perfect on the road and that I will have lots more road trips in my future… Stay tuned!
