Where is Porthos Now?

Omaha: Somewhere in middle America

Porthos here. So it is my turn at the keys. As many of you know Beagles are excellent writers. Take Snoppy for example. I thought I would tell you a little about are trip thus far. We just arrived in Omaha. I have loved rolling in all of the different grasses across the country. The best was in Idaho. It was nice and long and smelled really good. I then got to meet my Grandparents, Tammy and Russ, and play with
Walter and Jack. They fed me lots of good treats. Well it is time for me to go into my Kennel. More tomorrow.


Jamison here. Well FINALLY we are on our way. We are a day behind which stinks because we won’t get any time in Salt Lake City with my family. With that said I would like to reflect a little on the past 4 days and I what I have learned. For must of you this is common sense, but I guess I just needed to get a cold slap in the face from the cold, unforgiving mistress that is moving. ( Action of Jamison shaking his fist in rage)

  • 1. DON’T BUY A DOG A MONTH BEFORE YOU MOVE. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Porthos. In fact he is one of the best dogs I have ever met. He is cuddly and cute , but still playful and fun. It is just that having a puppy makes it really, really hard to pack when you have to be constantly watching a dog.

  • 2. No matter how much you want to see one of you friends get plastered drunk, don’t attend a bachelor party the night before you move. Especially with a bunch of Irishmen who can party and drink all night long. While it can be fun and you come away with fond memories of a wasted man throwing ice at a BMW, it is not worth the sleep you will loose.

  • 3. Which brings me to my next point, Don’t pull an all nighter the night before you move. It doesn’t work.

  • 4. Finally if you are going to move have a Josh Caldwell and a David Parry near by. They are those all stars that can make anything fit, anywhere. They are also the ones willing to give up their Saturdays and wake up at 7:00am to help you move.
