We have had Duchess Isabella in our home for two days now and have had our first, adventure!
My daughter and I rounded up our furkids and packed their bag to go to Petco. It appears that I misjudged Bella's size the day before on her harness and a sweater, so we were going to get ones that fit her. Going there also exercises the little ones indoors, out of the inclimate weather. I also try to take Socrates there pretty frequently to help him be a more social little guy.
Well, anyway, we get ready to go home and everything seems fine. The furkids are in the back laying down and I'm about to leave Salem for the highway that takes me back home. I just get on the bridge out of Salem and my CAR STOPS DEAD in traffic.
That's right, I didn't know what I was going to do! I had the two little guys in my lap and my daughter and i were getting ready to try to bail out of the car with our little ones and their blankies (That's why I pack for them everytime I go somewhere.) when an officer comes up behind me. Thank God, I didn't have to get my daughter, who is generally useless in a crisis--she panics, the babies and myself out in traffic and try to walk back down to a phone.
The officer radioed for a tow truck for me and sat behind my car with his lights on until the town truck came so no one would run into the back of us.
Then we all got to ride in a tow truck the rest of the way home which was about 12 miles.
We were all very happy to be back home and the kids promptly found their favorite places and snoozed the rest of the day away, recovering from their adventure.
Oh, we also discovered on one of our walks outside today, that Bella is a
chaser. Yep, she sees kitty cats and delights in making them run
More will be coming later
