all in all the vacation went pretty well. I cried for a good portion of it though, it was our first trip up there without Iria and I miss her sooooo much. Then when we got there the water pump wasn't working (no great suprise) so Dh spent most of Friday playing with that, and then giving up on the thing bc it was getting dark so he hooked up the old small water pump so we'd have running water. Then I discovered all my Cabela's rain gear was missing (I leave it up at the cabin). Turns out my MIL did some cleaning last time they were there over July 4th and threw it out. Claimed she didn't know whose it was. Yeah, she only saw me wear it for 2 freakin' years!!! and I mean they THREW IT OUT! My FIL said there were some garbage bags in his garage and he was tired of them being there so without looking to see what was in them he took them to the landfill. So, gone is all my rain gear and my cute pink & white hat. $80 worth of quality stuff, and that was only bc it was on sale!!! They didn't even apologize or offer to pay for replacement stuff. oh Dh & I are just livid over that!!!!!

anyway . . . here's some pics - This is copied from a PDF I am making to send to RPaWs (Rescued Pets are Wonderful, where we got Honey).

Honey's First Vacation

Boy, did I have an exciting time! My humans took me & Carl all the way to Canada. We lived on an island for 10 days and there was lots of fun stuff to do.

My humans tried to teach me how to swim. They even got me a water retrieval toy! I wasn't very good at it at first, but I got the hang of it eventually.

Then my human worked on cutting back the cattails and I really wanted to help.

I thought the rotting cattails were pretty tasty but my humans didn't agree!

Then Carl & I found a big log to play with. I tried to pick it up and carry it around but it was heavy! So I chewed up one end instead.

I also discovered I love really fresh fish! They were fun to watch in the water.

I especially liked helping my human carry them to the livebox!

I don't think I was really supposed to be up on the couch but I didn't care. I had so much fun I was really tired out!

Hope you enjoyed my vacation pictures!
Love, Honey

Oh yeah, and I then ate an entire pound of butter when we got home. My humans tried to hide it from me by putting it way up on the counter top, but I managed to find it anyway. Boy that was tasty!

I'm so glad Honey had a great vacation, you know how hard they work, so I'm glad Honey was able to enjoy and relax the vacation. It look like she had a great time. By the way, she's so cuteeeeeeeeee, i love the last picture of her. I hope you guys also enjoyed your vacation. It does sound like it was a blash (at least from Honey's perspective)

So glad to hear the trip went great besides a few set backs. Honey is so pretty and I love the story you put with each picture. That last picture of her is way to cute

So glad you had a great time. Can't believe they just tossed out expensive outerwear like that and not offer to pay or help out on replacement.

Honey is so cute, love the pic of her helping to carry the fish and laying on the sofa and especially the last one, so adorable.

Happy to see you back!

The pics are wonderful. I'm glad you had a good time, except for the rain gear. I'd be mad too.
