Where I have been and what I have done:

Some of you might have been wondering, why I have not posted anything for a while. Well, globetrotting beagles like me once in a while have to go on road trips with the rest of the pack (mom and dad, of course) to broaden their horizon.

Me in my tour gear.
 So a few weeks ago, mommy stuffed pretty much the entire house and a whole supermarket into her car, packed some coolers with food for me and daddy (hard boiled eggs, my friends!) and off we went to visit grandma in California.

It's a bit like "Where is Waldo?"
 First we drove from New York to New Jersey to Pennsylvania to Ohia to Indiana and we saw a whole lot of, well, nothing. I mean, there were just corn fields and potato fields and more corn fields and more potato fields. You have no idea. 

There is really NOTHING!
Then from Indiana, to Illinois to Nebraska. We stayed at a really nice hotel there in Lincoln, they even allowed dogs on the bed there - I think.....

Me in Nebraska!

And then....more driving....BORING.....

Bored to death in NOWHERE!

We also saw this hound howling at the sun in the middle of the day....

What is he howling at in middle of the day?
 After driving through Nebraska FOREVER we ended up in Wyoming. But, man, I gotta tell you, they have spooky stuff in there hotels.
I saw this dude in Evanston in the lobby of the Best Western and even though I barked at him like crazy, he would not go away. Instead, mommy pulled me out of the lobby - she was probably afraid that I would scare the hell out of the bear!

Scared the hell out of him! He didn't even move - that's how scared he was!

 Thank came, you guessed it, more nothing....

More nothing in Utah.
...and then we ended up at this strange lake that was made all out of salt. Mommy yelled at daddy for letting me walk on it and I had to have my paws cleaned with water afterwards. They called it the Salt Flats and daddy got all excited and wanted to drive the car over it!

Me and daddy on the weird looking lake.

After Utah came Nevada and if I thought before that there was a whole lot of nothing out there. Nevada had even more nothing - and rattlesnakes on top of it!
Mommy said I had to hold my pee until there were no more snakes and I totally got it.

No pee for me!

After four days in the car, three hotels, lots of treats, pee stops in every state along the way, we made it to the Pacific Coast.
And I will tell you all about it in my next blog.
So stay tuned and wait, there are more adventures to come. Like the one time when I almost......
OK, gotta go. It's my birthday today. See you next week.
Love, Ellie
