Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of three fun-filled trips.
I've been on the road again this summer and now I'm home to share my escapades
first trip was to Chocolate Town U.S.A., aka Hershey, Pennsylvania. What a stupid
place to take a dog! Hellooo....chocolate is like poison for dogs! Although
I suspect that to be yet another conspiracy against us. So I stayed in the hotel
room while my family toured the chocolate factory and got all hyped-up on free
samples. They did bring me a souvenir bandana and a giant Hershey's Kiss, which
to my dismay when I ripped it open was filled with stuffing, not with chocolate.
Oh well, at least I had free HBO.
For Independence Day we spent the weekend in Atlantic City. I
had been there once before, but only for an afternoon on the boardwalk. This
time we stayed over. Don't tell Donald Trump, I don't think he would appreciate
that my mother smuggled me up to our room on the 17th floor of Trump Tower.
I didn't really appreciate being zipped up in a bag like we used to do in our
apartment in Hawaii. But man, what a view! It was a pretty exciting weekend,
my friend that was visiting us from Hawaii won a lot of money and some of it
even went into my piggy bank. Thanks, Wayne!
in August my greatest dream came true. My family took me to our neighboring
country, and I don't mean Mexico. I mean The Great White North, the land of
milk and hockey, I went to Canada! I was so excited
when we were crossing the border that I'm surprised we didn't get held up at
customs. But they didn't even ask to see my shot record. First we visited one
of the natural wonders of the world, Niagara Falls.
The falls were impressive I guess, but what amazed me was seeing a groundhog.
How did he get all the way there from my backyard? Maybe he held onto the bottom
of the car like in the movie Cape Fear. You know how devious they can be. The
next day we went on to Toronto, the beautiful city on Lake Ontario. Toronto
is home of the Hockey Hall of Fame, which for my family
and I was like visiting a sacred church or cathedral. We must not be the only
fanatics who feel that way because it even looks like a church. Unfortunately,
this church did not allow dogs inside.
What a travesty! I had hoped Canadians were more open-minded than that. They
did let me visit the souvenir shop where I got a new NJ
Devils jersey, at quite a nice exchange rate I must say. Then we went to
McDonald's for dinner. Now if you've read my Drive-Thru
Reviews you know that McDonald's is my favorite. Well, in Canada it's even
better - they have McPizza! Yum! (To see my Canadian vacation

I had such a great time that when we crossed the border on the way home, I
was like a different dog. The Canadian experience had changed me. I was exhausted!
I was so good on the way home, my family is thinking of sending me back once
a month. That sounds pretty good to me.
Now that Summer is over, I'm back home and ready for a long-winter's nap. Just wake me up for Christmas!
