First of all, yes we made it to the beach. For those of you asking, we are at Huntington Beach State Park (South Carolina) in the S-RV and will be making excursions in the Jeep to Myrtle Beach and Charleston for sure (and maybe even Savannah). Unfortunately, the drive from our house to the beach is six hours, so we got here just as the sun was setting. No pictures from the beach today (and a little challenged anyway since our Verizon Wireless laptop card is showing a whole one bar of coverage – pretty hard to do anything fast on the internet).
But we want to take a moment to talk about our poor cousin, Ruby. Now look at this face and ask yourself if she could possibly cause any trouble:
Apparently, the answer is yes. Notice the connected leash. While indoors. This has nothing to do with her counter surfing skills – which are quite extraordinary. No, our hu-nephew – who is just over a year old – was at our hu-grandparents house. Notice the walker just off to Ruby’s side. Ruby is still working on that “don’t jump on people to say hello” rule, and with a bi-ped puppy, that can be a real problem. Even though she has never, never, never done anything like that to our hu-nephew, to prevent anything happening, Ruby was tethered to our hu-dad while she was in the house.
Just like prison
I promise to work on my greeting skills.
