Roswell museum and Research Center

We were happy to learn that the museum is dog friendly! It was pretty hot here today and the air conditioning was so nice. The nice lady at the museum gave me this new little alien to play with. We’re having fun on our trip but I miss the squirrels in my backyard.

T-shirt time

I kept scratching my side so much they had to put a t-shirt on to make me stop. Seems to be working. It’s like a calming effect. Haven’t scratched since putting it on. I didn’t mind them putting it on but I’m not sure about it. They say I’m brooding but it’s ok as long as I’m not scratching. Dad thinks he got it started because he combed me too aggressively. Sort of like priming the itching pump and once flowing it’s too hard for me to stop.

Bath time

They took me to this place and gave me a bath today. Guess all this traveling makes me smell funny and itch too much. Feel much better now.

Ptarmigan Lake

We went hiking up to Ptarmigan Lake today up on Cottonwood Pass. Whew it was hard. More than 6 miles round trip according to their mileage meters. It’s ok. I just stuck right with them and we made it back fine.

Snow feels so good on my face

There was some snow that didn’t melt yet on our walk. Oh it was so clean and wet and cold. I just couldn’t get enough of it. This kind of snow doesn’t really stick to my hair because it seems to be wetter.

Dad cut my bangs off

I’m not sure how I feel about this yet. Well I can look up much easier now. The sun might get in my eyes now too. They said they had to cut it because it was all messed up and they might as well give short a try. They say it’ll grow back. [end]

Just done getting a bath

It was a chore but we both endured a nice clean shower. After our gourmet lunch of grilled fresh trout that we helped catch at Franz Lake today they decided to try and get more of the skunk smell out of Henry. Mom says we had a spa day for dogs, recreational fishing and swimming, nicely grilled fish, and then a relaxing shower with bubbles and cream rinse then a awesome towel rub down. Now it’s nap time.
Henry has been here 12 days so far. I think they wanted to get the smell off of him for the ride home in the truck tomorrow.
