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!
Hey! 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?
And 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!
The 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!
Fort 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!
