Finally, after lots of
dedicated attempts snoozing, here a recount of the last couple of weeks just after Irma’s visit. We had barely gotten organized when Ms. Zulu and I were dropped off at a doggie resort. We had both been there many times before. The resort has a pool and we can play lots with other dogs. Even Ms. Zulu who normally doesn’t play anymore with other dogs played some. Still, we were very happy when we were picked up after fur-ever two weeks. Once home, Ms. Zulu and I slept and slept and slept for several days. At long last, we are now back on some sort of a regular schedule.
The humans showed us the photos of their trip to Europe. It was said to be a work/ visit family & friends/ holiday kind of trip. It beats me why we couldn’t go. M said something about a long uncomfortable flight but I am not completely convinced. Anyhowls, the humans seem to have had fun. On their list was a visit to CERN in Geneva. That’s where the antimatter factory is located. What that is? Beat’s me, I thought antimatter didn’t matter, so not sure why we need a factory for the stuff. BTW, I like their view of the Mont Blanc.
CERN: Some serious matter
Look at their view!

I noticed that CERN has a Big Box just like the one I have been in a couple of times; you know the one that takes you to alternate realities. It’s amazing the humans made it back in one piece without my Dogtor skills. There was lots of stuff to get your tail tangled up in too. And do you know that CERN has its own mice shelter? It was guarded by a big pussycat.

Stuff that you don’t want to get your tail tangled up in
The Mice Shelter is well guarded
The photos show that Geneva’s libraries are guarded by a dog who seems to have gotten her outfit at the same store as Ms. Zulu. The library job must be a boring one; the dog looks a bit sad. Ms. Zulu sure could have cheered up the place with her happy face. I would have been happy to help my big sis with the reading part too. After all, I’m a certified R.E.A.D. dog.

Ms. Zulu looks a lot happier
In Rome, the humans went to the Vatican and the Colosseum. They also visited Pompeii which is located further south in Italy. Pompeii’s streets seem a bit empty. I’m sure Ms. Zulu would have been happy to herd some customers there.
Streets in Pompeii
There were no empty streets in the Vatican. It is said that 30.000 – 45.000 people visit the Vatican each day! The Vatican was guarded by two wolfs. Two doesn’t seem enough for such a large crowd. Ms. Zulu and I could have easily helped with crowd control. Ms. Zulu would have licked the people to death and I could have done my reversed Reiki on the remainder of the crowd.
I can do crowd control
The Vatican apparently has some beautiful paintings. Raphael, one of the painters, was a real visionary. Don’t you agree? Michelangelo is another famous painter who painted lots of walls and ceilings in the Vatican. As you can see below, Ms. Zulu and I even received a postcard from the Vatican with a photo of one of Michelangelo’s famous paintings located in the Sistine Chapel. It was a bit disappointing that the card was not signed by the pope himself, but hey who knows what happens in the future or in an alternate reality. I can always take another trip in the Big Box.

We got mail from the Vatican!

Raphael’s painting, hey that’s me!
Lots of doors to old buildings in Rome remained closed to the humans. If I would have been there with my special Dogtor gear I could have opened them for sure. I bet next time they will think twice before the humans decide not to take us!
A Closed Door
Yep, you need a real Dogtor here
Happy tails, keep dreaming big,
