The Summer of Sandy


Admittedly, we didn’t do a very good job of keeping up with our blog this summer.  There is a reason…. we had to say goodbye to our girl Sandy. Much of our time and attention was focused on taking care of her.  While we know we made decisions that were in her best interest  - that didn’t make it any easier.

Sandy loved to travel with us in the RV. She was an amazing companion and JoAnne and I have 13 years worth of wonderful memories of our life with her.

As I write this post, we are planning our next RV adventure. We will be heading down to Galveston Island State Park and will be volunteer camp hosts for the month of November. We camped there last November and liked it so much we wanted to return. We decided to apply to be camp hosts and were accepted. This is a wonderful park and we feel fortunate to have this opportunity.

We want to acknowledge and thank San Juan Veterinary Clinic for their care and compassion.


  1. I just want to say I'm sorry for your lost. Several years ago we had a hines 57 that was almost 16 years old when we had to put her down. We swore we would not get another pet and go through the pain again. We now have a Minaiture Pincher that will soon be 4 years old and has been with us since she was 8 wks old. She is our spoil little baby!
    anyways just also want to say we too, travel in a 2008 26 ft Winnebago Aspect! We are currently in Coffeyville KS-yeah it's a bit chilly, but I'm working for and lovin' it! Would like to keep in touch and who knows-our paths might meet someday!

  2. Thanks for your comments. Ha. We are at Cheny State Park -Kansas. Heading toward TX.
