I love having Lucy with me when I'm driving, so yesterday morning, I loaded her into the box truck and she and I set off for Crawford County. We had furniture to pick up, there were 2 stops to make. Rob had told me my first stop was only an hour and a half away, just imagine my surprise when I put the address in the GPS and it told me it was 2 1/2 hours away! I felt like I was going the wrong way.
Travelling with Lucy is easy. She's very good in the car or the truck! She sleeps most of the time, but every once and a while will sit straight up and check everything out. I'm sure that if she could speak, she would have been saying "Are we there yet, Ma?" because I myself kept having the same thought.
Lucy and I stopped off at almost every rest stop that we passed. They all had very nice areas to walk your pet, which I think is fantastic! She enjoyed exploring all of the wonderful smells, and I loved being able to get out of the truck and strectch my legs. And the funny looks that I got crawling out of that truck were pretty entertaining. I don't suppose I look much like a truck driver! And believe me when I say, I'm not used to driving that big truck, so there were some pretty interesting moments yesterday- mostly involving "reverse".
On one of our potty breaks, we met a wonderful woman who fell in love with Lucy. She told us that her daughter had a wonderful 13 year old boxer that she had just lost, and asked if she could take some pictures of Lucy to show to her Grandkids! Of course, Lucy was happy to oblige and as soon as that camera came out, Lucy struck a pose! You should have seen that picture!
By the time we pulled in the driveway at 5:00, both Lucy and I had more than our fill of being on the road! We were both eager to get out of that truck! But we had a very nice day together, and travelling with Lucy is much better than travelling alone!
