…literally. Teddy tooted all the way across New Mexico and half of Texas, which not only made for a rather unpleasant journey, but also a lot of–as it turns out–unnecessary stops at rest areas and truck plazas where we’d pile out of the car and I’d lead him around pleading, “Go potty, Teddy!” in as sweet a voice as I could muster. All to no avail. The goofy dog didn’t do anything until we got checked into the hotel…except fart. If he toots in his sleep tonight, he’s sleeping in the car!
Oh, and if anyone ever asks if you want to go to El Paso, Texas, run the other way as fast as you possibly can. That’s all I’m saying.

All I will say is that I am a very lucky guy/dad to have a daughter like Mary and be treated like the “King of the World”. My family/friends are my source of strength to say nothing about my freezer full of good things for the tummy – Thanks again Mary – and now it is the adjustment back to only one in the condo. My daughter is much like her Mother and her being with me was like Jan was back in my life. Suck it up dad it is time to move on.
I have become very attached to Teddy and we seemed to get along quite well. I didn’t mind stepping over him while he was sleeping in the hall.
Thank you for a fabulous–and very relaxing–few days. I hope we can do it all again very soon. Love you!
