Adventures and TAILS from Bath County

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! It is Friday afternoon and Chloe and I just finished a tasty lunch! It was dee-lish! Fridays are spent catching up from the busy week, playing outside, and taking cat naps! We love naps - especially Chloe! We both needed a nap today! We had one of the most exciting and eventful weeks! I will start at the beginning.

We left our doghouse in Shepherdsville on Monday afternoon to drive to Bath County. We were scheduled to be at Bethel Elementary on Tuesday and Tuesday evening, and then at Salt Lick on Thursday and Thursday evening. We were traveling along, singing our favorite travel songs like The Wheels on the Bus, How Much Is That Doggie in the Window, and B-I-N-G-O when Dad said the Woody Bus was acting funny. Rut-row (as Scooby would say)!!! We made it as far as Lexington before we had to pull over. Dad did manage to get the Woody Bus to the Kentucky Horse Park. Mom stayed with us while Dad took a cab to the airport to rent a car. Try putting an entire house into a car!!! Anyway, we spent the night in the Woody Bus and then drove the rental car to Bethel. We were crowded to say the least, but the great part was that we made it to Bethel without any problem.

Spending the day at Bethel was so fun. Mrs. Vivian Setters (the librarian at both Bethel and Salt Lick) made our visit so smooth! The students and teachers were so friendly. We made so many new friends! Bethel was celebrating their high test scores. They had really cool bright shirts. You can see from the first two photos!

On Wednesday, we spent the day getting the Woody Bus worked on. It was a minor problem and the mechanics had it running as good as new! We were so thankful to get back in the old trusty Woody Bus. Mom says it is our home-away-from-home, but we spend so much time in it, it really feels like home!!!

Thursday found us at Salt Lick Elementary. Like Bethel, Salt Lick is another small school in Bath County. The great part about small schools is that we feel like we know all the students by the time we leave. Everyone at Salt Lick was so nice to our family. We received so many rubs and hugs!

A great big thanks to everyone at Bethel and Salt Lick for making us feel at home - especially Mrs. Setters. Mrs. Setters gave the entire Dog Pound a gift at both schools! We received Beggin' Strips, dog bones, a frisbee, and cat nip. (The cat nip was for Dolly and Little Bit and the frisbee was for Rio and Cheyenne.) I told Mom that Mrs. Setters was like Santa Claus! It really felt like Christmas!

I was so afraid that since we were in Bath County that Mom would make us take a bath every day. Thankfully, we didn't have to take one every day, but we still had to brush our teeth!

I better run! The sun is shining and Chloe wants to play hide-and-go seek. She is hiding and I am seeking. She always hides in the best places!!!

Have a great weekend! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
