I’m Goin’ on a Trip!

That’s right, you read correctly. I’m going on a trip!

Mum brought me over to my ‘Master Chair’ and sat me down. She said I needed to be seated for what I was about to hear. She also made sure to stuff a ball in my yapper. Then when she told me she was going to take me on a vacation, I was absolutely ecstatic! (but didn’t drop the ball).


It’s not all good news though. Mum also told me she was going on another trip without me at the end of April. It doesn’t help that she’s going to an awesome place, too (St. Lucia, Caribbean). She’s staying at Oasis Marigot Hotel & Villa Rentals if anyone wants to check them out, and I’m sure she’s going to have some cool pictures to show me after. I’ll make her bring my picture frame and ball again. Here’s a little peep at where she’ll be staying:

Can you believe I’m not going there? Anyway, I’ll try not to dwell on it..

But at least she made me feel like I was there with this picture she later took.


So this will be the second time she is leaving me alone with Dad (first time was when she went to Cayman Islands), and I guess this time she felt bad – thank goodness! But at least I’ll be going on a trip with her and Dad near the end of June! It’s going to be a road-trip though, so unfortunately no international first class flights for me this time! But it’s a vacation nonetheless!

Whoop, whoop, whoop!

She said she doesn’t know where we’re going yet so looks like it’s still up in the air, but can be anywhere within a day’s driving distance from Ottawa. Plus, she said it’s up to me to decide!

So let’s see, I could explore the untamed wilderness of northern Canada, or maybe I could party it up on the beach, celebrity-style in Miami..

I could hike the mountains of Vermont, frolic in the waters of Niagara Falls, do some lobster fishing (I love fishing) on the East Coast, see New York City, or many more possibilities.

Personally, I like somewhere warm, but I’m going to ask my fans – where do you want to see me travel to?

I’m so excited that I’ve already started preparing. I will need my full wardrobe – you never know what circumstances might call for a specific outfit. Rain gear is definitely helpful, and I hope I don’t even need to bring a winter jacket! I’ll need lots and lots of toys though.

I’ll definitely need a bathing suit, some sunglasses, a pair of binoculars and my hat…


Oh, and a whistle so I can whistle out the babes.

I’m sure Mum will make me pack a life jacket, too..

Yet, there’s no point packing too much until I know where I’m going! Mum always says I’m too impulsive and that I need to think out my decisions first, so that’s why I’m consulting my fans! Unfortunately, Oakley won’t be here to go with me on this trip, but I will be going with my ol’ friend, Laffie. It’ll be nice to spend some time with her again.

So where do you think I should go??

Keep trippin’,

Edit [June 2013]: I ended up going to Maine after this post!

  1. I suggest Yellowstone Nat’l Park in the good ole U.S. of A! There are lots of great places to stay in either West Yellowstone (right outside the park) or in Jackson Hole. If you stay in Jackson Hole, you get to see the Grant Tetons too! Lots of trails to hike, strange animals to see, wonderous sights to marvel at
    , and people from all over the world to admire you!

  2. One day’s journey from Ottawa. Hmmm, how fast does the car go? LOL Some of those answers seem a little far away. I’d say try going west or north seeings as you already go to Quebec alot. As long as you’re with your mom and dad eh?

  3. Please come to the NH coast area. You can get here in one day and if you can stand the traffic you’ll love it! (and perhaps we can meet you)

  4. We would love to have you come to Missouri….but I couldn’t blame you if you made the trip to Alabama to Gulf Shores its Beautiful!
