A Monumental Time

Hey Everypawdy!

So, we are staying at Wyatt Ray’s house now and mom has a minute to post for me. Yay! We are having so much fun!

This has been a Monumental trip!

Red Rock PassHey! Hey! I have crossed the continental divide about a gazillion times now—have you? Ever? Its pretty cool! Here’s papa, Smokey and me on top of the world and Red Rock Pass, MT! Smokey is in Idaho and I am in Montana. How cool is that?

CR and Shep_2And OMG, we stayed in Ft. Benton, MT where there are three awesome memorials to dawgs! Two are for a dog named Shep. He held vigil for his dead human for years at the train station until he was so old and deaf he didn’t hear the train coming one day. The local Boy Scouts were his pall bearers and they buried him on a knoll above the train station.  Here I am with Shep up on the knoll!

CR and Shep3The town loved Shep so much they made another memorial to him down by the river. I had to hang out with him there too, and soak up all his good qualities. It is fancier and all but I have to admit I liked the original one up on the knoll better. I hope that someday somebody will remember me for one of my great qualities decades after I die. I wanna be just like Shep!

War dog CRFort  Benton also has a memorial to the Vietnam war dawgs. OMD, I was so moved by this and, like, totally honored to have my picture taken at the memorial. Here in this little tiny town on the Missouri River in the middle of nowhere Montana. This is one dawg lovin’ town! Woohoo, I love Fort Benton!

Wish you were here everybody!

  1. Yo! Codie Rae! Girl, you are AWESOME! Your pics are great, and your stories are cool. Can’t wait to hear more!

  2. Codie Rae! You are having too much fun. It looks to me like Smokey wants to be in Montana with you! “grass is always greener…”
    I’m in awe of those memorials. Very cool. I’m not sure what kind of memorial you could hope for, though. Shep got his because he stayed in one place for a long time. You, Codie Rae, are based on movement. You would need like an airplane or helicopter memorial.
    I bet the sights were better up on the knoll. I like your pictures. You photogenic dog. Hey, speaking of photogenic-I just saw you on the front of Fetch! Cool! (yeah, we are a little behind the times).
