For Thanksgiving we packed up the pups and drove to Orange where my in-laws live. It’s about 300 miles from Austin, right where the Louisiana border and the Gulf coast come together.
It was Joey’s first road trip, and we wondered how he would fare. He loves the car and the drive was fine, but he was nervous when we got to my grandmother-in-law’s house. There were a lot of people who all wanted to meet him, which kind of freaked him out, but he rose to the occasion and showed off with some precision peeing in the front yard before going in to inspect the couches. They met with his approval.
Over the next few days, Joey settled in just fine and expanded his fan base to include the golden triangle.
