So I finally was able to get SOME pics of our trip to Florida off an old myspace. I'm very upset that I can't get them all back.
Anyway, We left October 3rd 2009 [mine and Tanner's one year anniversary] and came back the 11th.
It was SO much fun. We went with my friend and her dogs.
My friend has a big dog and she didn't want to ship it so we drove the whole way.
We drove from Ohio to South Carolina and stayed a night in a motel.
Then the next day we got to St Augustine, Florida and I think we stayed 2 nights there. The motel was nasty, but not many dog friendly places are available. I loved it there. The houses were cute and had an odd range of colors. The colors reminded me of easter lol. And we were right on the ocean. My friend refused to play in it, but me and Tanner had a blast! He'd run around with me, but as soon as the waves crept up he'd take off lol. He did try to follow me into the water once, but I wouldn't let him.
Then we went to Orlando. Our hotel was SO nice. The whole first night my friend and I ran around the halls acting like cops, and Tanner was our police dog. He was so funny. We'd hide around corners and act like we're lookin' for bad guys. And I'd tell Tanner to lay down and stay while we jumped out into the clear. And he wouldn't listen, but instead take off running down the hall. XD I don't have to use a leash on him because he comes when called. And honestly the hotel staff and other guests loved him lol. Our little game may sound immature to you, but mind you, I'm 17 and I can be a kid still if I want.
I adored Orlando and the city feel. We took a long walk around everything. It was SOOO hot. Even Tanner had to stop every ten minutes for a cool down. And it started raining, yet it was sunny as can be! It was amazing! And a rainbow came out and we got pics of the dogs with it. I wish I still had them.
We got pictures of the dogs with everything we saw, but none of us! Hahaha. While us humans went to Universal Studios and Seaworld, we had to leave the dogs behind and I was so worried! We told them no maid service, but once they ahd to have repairmen fix the tv so they saw the dogs. -.- I was worried sick theyd steal them. But all was good. Tanner made a lot of new friends. A black Chi was staying at the same hotel and Tanner loved her.
It was all so much fun, and we loved Florida. I really wanna go back sometime soon.
So anyhoo, here are a couple pics. ^______^
THE SUNSHINE STATE! I had pics like these of all the states we went through.
Tanner's first time seeing the ocean!
Tanner's a prince in orlando! ^_^
Tanner and Lexus, my friends dog.
Oooooh it was so hot, even in he early morning.
That's all I could scoop up.
Maybe I'll be able to get the others eventually. There were well over 200.
I'm taking Tanner to New Jersey and New York City this Summer.
And then California later on in the year.
We're so excited.
