Still Photoless

I met some really cool people today. It doesn’t hurt that they live full-time in an RV with 3 dogs and feel the same way about the normal rat race as I do.  Essentially, they are what I wanted to be when I started out on this nomadic quest. Also, their last name is Snow. That’s cool.

They made me remember how I originally wanted to blog about all the cool places I visit and that I really haven’t been doing much of that.

Gunnar and Beasley have been taking turns having ear infections since August. That’s $150 bucks every time they need to go to the vet. It looks like it is a food allergy. Lucky me, both my heaviest eaters develop a food allergy at the same time. It couldn’t have been Lola who hardly eats a thing. I’m on the hunt for special hypo-allergenic dog food.  I want to try Taste Of The Wild first, but I have to order from Amazon and I don’t know how easy that will be.  Beasley has gotten to the point where he lays in my bed (which is not allowed) and whines almost constantly until I clean out his ears.  He also whines while I’m cleaning out said ears and won’t come to me if I have the cleanser in my hands.  He pretty much just lays in the bed staring forlornly while whining his misery. Unless there is a dog outside, then it’s go time.

I did, in fact, learn what an alternator looks like yesterday. The best part of this RV life is all the people I meet. The day before, I met a gentleman with a very adorable dog. It turns out, my neighbor Randy mentioned my alternator troubles to said gentleman and he can fix it right here. I don’t think my luck has ever been this good. So, boom. The downside is I don’t have an alternator so I can’t take Beasley to the vet.

This is the vet that essentially forced me to buy a gentle leader collar for Gunnar and they let cats roam the office willy-nilly. I’m not a fan. But one must do what one must do for one’s canine companions.

I took Gunnar with me to the grocery store. I put a backpack on him, add some weights and off we go. He barks the entire time I’m in the store so I run like mad to get everything. Then I fill the backpack with the groceries and it is back home.  It’s really nice. I highly recommend everyone getting a dog backpack and making their wild beast earn its keep.
