So tomorrow, for only the second time in their 2.6 years of life, Jon Farleigh and Dewi are going to overnight doggy camp (while we humans take a short, much-needed no-pet vacation).
I'm not one bit nervous, though, because there's a gem-of-a pet boarding facility, tucked away on a farm that borders a Virginia scenic byway, within a few miles of my home.
Truthfully, I fully expect the dogs to have a blast (which should quell any pang of guilt that creeps up while I'm doing the same)! Wheeeeee!
Please accept my apology for not revealing our vacation destination (just yet), but I will tell you this: We will have no shortage of animal interaction (at least part of the time)!
And in light of these upcoming adventures, I thought it would be appropriate to re-publish something I wrote two Thanksgivings ago (on MyCorgi.com, before this blog even existed) after driving Jon Farleigh and Dewi to their first-ever doggy overnight camp experience.

To our doggy vacation-place-in-the-country we go.

See you all next week!
P.S. My blog writing has come a long way since November 2010, don't you think? I mean how could I have just cut off the song parody mid-verse?? How rude! ;-)
