The Horror that is a Road Trip

Before Dory barges in and tells you all what a WONDERFUL time we had last Saturday on our family outing, I would like to share it with you from MY perspective!

On Saturday Mama and Daddy did the unthinkable, the horrible, the unbelievable!!! They KIDNAPPED ME and MADE ME go on a road trip with them. This was not just the ROTE that they take Dory on either...this was a THREE HOUR (that is like 3 weeks in doggie time) drive ONE WAY!!!! We went all the way to Fort Worth, Texas!!!

Mama actually contaminated our beds by putting them in Daddy's bye bye machine!!

I gave my Mama my bestest "Don't make me go" look....for some reason it didn't work this time.Probably 'cause I have dried pumpkin on my face and she was giggling at that and NOT paying attention!

There was a bunch of boring scenery out the window...

Are we there yet????

All that way just to go for a walkie here??? Sheeeesh....humans. Daddy came all the way here to get a watch and Mama took Dory and I for a long walk down the street.

Kilroy Bilbo is here....

I found a sunbeam to lay in on the drive home.

and FINALLY I was home on the couch in my very own bed

Here is a video of the journey.....

Hi Bilbo,

The was a fun roadtrip... but I must say you didn't look too excited compared to Dory in the bye bye machine. Dory looked ravishing with the scarf.

Licks, hero

Frankie Furter said...

Bilbo you did a very much grrrreat job of making sure mama and dad knew that... YOU WERE NOT AMUSED!!
I've gotta study your facial expressions and give em a try on MY mom.
Thanks buddy!!

Honeygo Beasley said...


You do NOT look happy.

I hope you're happier now that you're back home.

Samantha said...

Oh no! What were they thinking kidnapping you for a road trip?! Dory seemed ok with it, she must not have realized what was going on. Glad you survived the trip though Bilbo!

Draco and his Mom said...

Poor Bilbo...you certainly gave the mama a cold shoulder while miss pretty was all waggy waggy...perhaps Dory was in on the trick. At least you are back home now safe in your domain.

But you look soo cute in the bed! And your video was very good:)

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Bilbo, we're sorry that you were dognapped!! Some of us like ridies and some of us don't.

Woofs and Kisses!

mayziegal said...

Oh, Bilbo, I am Most Sorry that you were tricked into such a terrible thing. But it was prolly still pretty nice to be with your pawrents, huh?

Wiggles & Wags,

Fred said...

Next time you are in Fort Worth, come see me!!! I totally know where that jewel-er-ee store is. It's just down the street from our church (which doesn't let me in...boo) and near a bunch of places with yummy foodstuffs!

The Army of Four said...

Oh, Blibo! That is a VERY long car trip! But then... 5 minutes is too long for me! I don't care for car rides, even when we go to fun places!!
You DO look cute with pumpkin on your face!

Schwang said...

I like the bed and harness set-up. It looks like you were traveling first-class.

Ludo van Doggy said...

You sure did look grumpy Bilbo. I loves road trips, did you not like even the walk, not just a little bit?
~lickies, Ludo

Twinkietinydog said...

You guys were rocking in the car! That pumpkin face Bilbo? I couldn't take you seriously either my furiend.

Joycee said...

I am so loving your blog! Our cocker Ben blogs for me often and he gets many more readers than I ever do! Come over to GrannyMountain for a visit!

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Bilbo
You would get on well with Bailey - she is not so happy in the car and hates long journeys.
We liked your video and especially loved seeing you and Dory when you were out having your walk.
We are glad you got back home after that big long trip.
Martha & Bailey xx

Kari in WeHo said...

that is a very long drive. Must be a special watch!

Tucker said...

I totally just sleep on long trips. The further you go the more new smells there are!

woof- Tucker

JackDaddy said...

Next time make sure they roll down the window so you can get all the smells!

houndstooth said...

Oh Bilbo! I can't believe that a sweet innocent pup like yourself was duped by his parents and tortured like that!


The OP Pack said...

So would it be safe to assume that you don't like road trips, Bilbo? It looked like it wasn't that bad, sure beats staying home alone - or were you planning a big pawty when they all left - BOL.

ScrapsofMe said...

We like car rides, they usually end at the dog park, the beach, or the donut shop. Sometimes they end at the groomers...yuck...or the vettie...double yuckie, but mostly somewhere nice or nummy. We don't have a comfy setup like youse guys....she just tosses our butts in a crate in the back. If she's feeling charitible, she'll put in a towel for comfort. If it's a short trip and just me, I get to ride shotgun in the front seat. Woohoo!


Benny and Lily said...

Oh my dawg are you guys adorable...punkin head! BOL....you are home safe and sound

Lorenza said...

Hi, Bilbo!
Your Dad's watch must be very special!
Sure you were not happy on that 3 hour road trip!
But I can see you and Dory had a happy walkie there!
Kisses and hugs

Cole said...

Poor Bilbo! You do not look happy at all. Dory, on the other hand looks like she smiled the entire time.

Cole said...

Dory, I completely forgot to mention it in my last comment.... You and your momma won one of my giveaways!

Teddy Bear said...

I'm sorry that you had to go on a road trip, Bilbo. It looks like a lot of fun. Atleast your pawrents brought along your beds for the long ride.:)

Tanuki Maxx said...

Hi Bilbo!
sorry to hear about your horror!
Now that you're home, bet you feel loads better!
Great video!!


Life With Dogs said...

Your version is fun - it has a little kick! :)


I don't mind long trips. Did you go to any drive thrus? They usually involve nice snacks! I'd be more mad if they left me home... I'm just saying

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Ha ha, look at the outrage on Bilbos little face. He really doesn't like doing anything but napping does he.
Hope you both enjoyed it more than you let on.
Wags, Dip Bridge and Elliot xx

ocmist said...

Believe me, Bilbo, I understand TOTALLY about LONG Road Trips! You definitely TOLD them you were NOT a happy camper though, by the expression on your face. Dory, like my brother, Gimli, really seems to enjoy herself. Each to his own I guess. Pippin
