Terminally Cute

This. Behind this terminally cute face lies the calculating mind of diabolical megalomaniac; she appears to have brought the wardens and the rest of the inmates under her spell, but I, Charlie Bravo, MD, PH D, QOTC, refuse to be convinced that she doesn't have her own designs on global conquest. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree; does no one else remember that her very conception was not exactly immaculate? Or the lengths…

We’re all in this together

And now back we go to "normalcy", dad back to work, and me to hanging out making my plans for world domination; I have to admit that I feel some of the twinges of dread that I don't seem to experience when out on the road. In moments of self doubt, I have to wonder; is all this talk of leaving my crate just so much hypocrisy? Although I'm the same dog in the Ozarks…

Life Has A Purpose

Find a purpose in life and live it; sometimes it is only after you have lived that you realize that your life had a purpose and one that likely you never had in mind - Khaled Hosseini We first met Kathleen and Barb in Raton NM on the dash for Dash (now Takoda) a few months ago when they graciously agreed to keep him in custody (if you follow Takoda's progress, you know what a…

As usual, we made one last stop to pay homage to the sleeping Lady Capulin; we've been here so many times that you would think that they would have a parking spot waiting. One of our driving forces has always been special needs kids, and how to use Charlie's story as a…

The Last Day in Moab

On our last day in Moab before bending the road back east, dad just HAD to cram one more hike in, this one in to the Fisher Towers area. There are pros and cons to every situation; when it comes to hiking on Utah's "slickrock", there is unlimited traction, as it's akin to walking on sandpaper. The negative is that it's also very abrasive, and this, coupled with the heat and lack of humidity, has…
