MOVING TIME

By Wednesday, September 23, 2015 46 Permalink

Last week, I ran around like a crazy lady. Up with the sun, working like a Keebler Elf #rememberthem? well after midnight. Exhausted but super excited, I’d dance the doodle shuffle past the Boys singing my made up song – “it’s moving time” pretending to be an R&B Artist with a new single.

Jax ran, romped, and jumped over the chaos of boxes, bubble wrap and packing paper all day long. He remained carefree and clueless. #myman

Unfazed about the changes around him, he took on the ambassador role showing Gabriella how much fun she could have in her new backyard…

Harley on the other hand stayed close. Real close! On top of 25 lbs of packing paper close!!

Either he wanted to –

  • make sure I didn’t leave him behind
  • or doodlecott the whole “move” thing

Pawhaps a little siesta on packing paper is really comfy to a doodle 🙂

What do you think?

I am proud to say, we successfully made our “move out” deadline and took I95 southbound before dawn with the cars crammed tight…

    WOW! That car is packed! I bet some dog just didn’t want to be left behind. I cannot imagine a nap on the packing paper being all that comfy.

    Your new backyard looks beautiful, Cathy! Harley looked a little overwhelmed with all the change and wanted to stay close to Mom, but I’m sure he’ll be running around and celebrating your new place in no time!

    Good luck with the move! I’m happy to see a new post and I will never get tired of your hashtags. They always make me smile.

    Kisses.

    Enjoy your new adventure. Nothing like where the “living is easy”. We’re working on our home on the island for our leisure days!

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 25, 2015

      Oooh, a home on an island for leisure sounds divine. We love it here and so we’re still excited about finally calling Charleston home!

    Good luck in your new home. I’m sure both dogs will settle in and enjoy smelling a new area.

      They have been walking around a lot with their heads down lately Sharon – LOL

    Good luck with the move, unpacking and the transition with the doddles! I know moving isn’t on my favorite things to do list! That car is packed! Where will the doodles go?

    • Cathy Bennett

      We will once again have more fun #thisissarcasism next week when we start unpacking. Harley should be happy to see his personal belongings again!

    Oh my gosh, I’ve gotten behind on my reading and I didn’t know you were moving – how exciting! I did remember you’ve been wanting to so I’m very happy for you that it’s all come true.
    I can’t wait to hear how the boys settle in. We’re thinking about selling our current house too and moving to something smaller (in our same area though), and I worry about how the pets are going to take it.
    Safe travels and have fun with unpacking!

      Hi Jan – don’t fret, everything happened so quickly – my neighbors were surprised. We were blessed that the house sold so fast. And all during the week of our daughter’s wedding here in Charleston on the beach! All is well, and I am learning to take everything in stride. Look for more posts about their transition with a new world – groomers, vets, neighbors, four legged friends, etc…. Should be an interesting series! Have a great weekend.

    Best of luck in your new home. Back yard looks awesome, I’m sure Harley will come around once he gets to run around.

    Best of luck in your new place,

      Thanks Suzanne. That is the yard of the home we sold! It was a great yard for the Boys all year round. Fun in the winter stomping up and down the snow covered hill. We will miss it. We will keep everyone posted as we scout out our new Doodleville. Thanks for stopping by…Have a great weekend.

    Moving is soo exciting!! Can’t wait to hear about your new place!

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 25, 2015

      Yes we’re excited (well all of us except Harley) – looking for a temporary home is a challenge when all I’m interested in is a fenced in yard! Doodle Dad and the Realtor can’t seem to figure me out!

  • Pedro & Alessandra

    Best of lucks! Looking forward to the new adventures in the new place! All the best to the entire Family under close supervision of Harley and Jax.

    Awww. It’s so cute that Harley wanted to be involved. Moving is hard for pets. They love so much for things to always be the same and never change. Humans aren’t much better. LOL I’m glad that you are into your new home. 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 24, 2015

      Hey Robin, haven’t moved in yet – still looking. I’m keeping them closer than usual until our belongings arrive. Harley’s fine as long as he’s close enough to see me LOL They’ve been real troopers!

  • Jackie Bouchard

    Oh, sometimes the pups get a little worried when they see us packing, don’t they? Whether for a move or a trip. Hope you had a safe drive and that you get settled in quickly in your new home!

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 24, 2015

      Jackie, Jax was no where near concerned about anything. Harley seems to have done more of the worrying for the both of them 🙂 He’s doing fine. I make sure they are both with us all the time until we are all moved in and they have their “stuff’ around them.

    Hope things are going well your way 🙂

      Hi Ann – Things are moving along well. The Boys are really doing well. I can tell they miss their “stuff” so I’m trying to keep them busy.
