Tomorrow, I will drive (according to Mapquest) 963 miles to Houston Texas, taking Martha to her Mama, Megan. That will be a single day record for me. . . I’ve done 600 in a day many times, so this is reach for a PR (personal record).
The things a daddy will do for his daughters.
Megan and her roommates “Fostered” Martha after her mother was killed by a car when she was only 3-4 weeks old. Megan quickly noticed Martha was a special and the rest is, as they say. . . history.
We have “dog-sat” her here in SC for a few months while Megan got settled at medical school and now it is time for them to be reunited. My hope is that Megan is as happy to see me as she is Martha.
I will tell you that there will be lots of sad faces in Aiken tomorrow. I know that everyone thinks their dog is special and the best dog in the world and I get that. Martha however, is the sweetest dog I have ever been around (and I’ve always been around dogs) and I’m going to miss her more than I care to acknowledge. My guess is that our four, black labs will miss her exuberance also, well, maybe.
Tonight, they are having “girls night” here…pizza, movies and a slumber party in a big girl’s bed as her crate is already packed.
Here is Martha’s life in a few pictures and I’ll be back on Friday.
Thanks for endulging me.
