Its been said that the only constant is change. Change comes in all forms. Some change is minor and barely detectable and other change is drastic, earth shattering and life altering. Change is everything in between. I have been faced with a series of monumental changes that has resulted in uprooting my life, leaving Ohio and moving to Arizona. I packed up the new Subaru Dogmobile and the two saints and I made the long journey cross country to start a new life in Arizona. My two remaining labradors stayed in Ohio with the other half of my family. Life will never be the same here at Its the Dogs Life, but we are going to move onward and upward and start a new chapter of our story.
Its not easy to uproot senior dogs and change everything they know. But Brutus and Rufus have been real champs and made the journey in true road warrior fashion. The 2 ½ day drive was long and boring but they made the best of going for the ride and watching the scenery go by. They took turns in the co-pilots spot and propped themselves up on their dog bed for a leisurely birds eye view of the road.
And sometimes they just slept to pass the time. They slept alot.
We drove for what seemed an eternity and finally arrived at our new home.
The boys have a nice big backyard to roam around in and explore. The dry heat has been so good for their old bones too. They have been friskier than they have in quite some time and were actually wrestling. Not bad for 2 almost 10 year old Saints. We will have lots more adventures to come, so stay tuned as we adjust to our new lives.
