    Dachshund and English bulldog?? Who'd have thought of combining those? Or a do-it-yourself designer dog??

    I once had a dog that looked like a dachshund with Rottweiler coloring. I picked him (Scooter) from the litter and, swear-to-God, the mother was a Brittany spaniel. One of the smartest and most lovable dogs I've ever had. He just couldn't jump up onto the couch without help.

    Our trailer is insulated with 1 1/2" ridged insulation it is sandwiched between fiberglass panels, we keep a thermometer inside to track the temp, and I have not seen it get above 75 , and that's when we stopped for a while in the Badlands when it was 98 outside. When we were in SO-Cal one time and it got to be 106 out side I put a block of ice inside and we opened the windows and let the wind blow thru. Our dog has logged over 20,000 miles in the trailer all over the US. We had a very bad experience leaving a dog at home one time and swore to never do it again. And every time we have left Trina at a dog boarder she has gotten sick or something, so she travels with us.

    No riding here today either. Rain! And cold! 48-53 wet, windy degrees all day; phooey!

    I really loved the dogs we had for 21 years, and they loved me. But now we're pet-free to travel at will, and just really enjoy our friends' and neighbors' dogs.

    Spydie hasn't been exercised now since Jan. 31, as we've been gone for a 10-day cruise and just got back last night. I was really looking forward to some myles in the wind today, but NO! Rain! Not for me... I have to turn a deaf ear to her mewling, whining and sniffling out in the driveway, champing at the bit to go for a spin. I hate denying her pleasure, but I'm really just a sissy about cold ryding.

    Two ways to look at this:
    1. That's just wrong! The British do not like Germans.
    2. That's just sweet! What a great display of setting aside differences.
