Happy Independence Day to all of my family and friends! Today we are going to brave traffic to go down and visit with my mother in New York, we’re bringing the three dogs so that will be an adventure. Jack has finally gotten used to the city over the years, Lulu has been to my mother’s house twice I think and it was fine, if I remember correctly. Stanley hasn’t been yet, so it will be interesting to say the least, he is protective so we might end up with Stanely barking at every single noise which could mean non stop barking, I hope not. Don’t worry, I’ll keep you apprised of the situation, I’m sure it will make for a fun read, perhaps even funny.
