wren You'll not see nothing like the mighty wren!
I have to brag a bit about Becca & Elbee, the awesome adventure dogs! We just took them on a three-week cross-country road trip, and Mr. Wren & I came back from the trip even more in love with them then before. There were such excellent dogs!
They happily got in the car every time, and happily got out for their walks. While in the car, they worked out the cutest bunk bed situation. Mr. Wren put a blanket on the floor of the back seat. That ended up being Elbee’s spot, and the bench seat was Becca’s. They rode quietly and nicely all the time, even on long driving days and even though they didn’t always get as much exercise as they are used to.
They behaved nicely in the motel rooms. When we stayed overnight near Vail, the motel was barely occupied, so I let them off their leashes when we got off the elevator, and Becca ran down the hall and danced outside the door to our room. Pretty smart dog!
I was especially worried about how Becca would deal with visiting our friends who have a newly-rescued Weimaraner. Becca has been working on her fear aggression issues, and this was a big test. That Weim was huge and obnoxious. He wanted to play all the time, and his play is much rougher than border collie play. He even tried Elbee’s patience, which was a first. But Becca did really well. She gave a few Elvis Presley sneers right away to let it be known that she was boss dog, and that was that. Respect was given, order was created, and all the dogs got along. Becca & Elbee really enjoyed that visit, and so did I.
Of course, they were wonderful hiking buddies, as always, even though they mostly had to be leashed. They were happy the whole trip. It was joy traveling with them.
