Dear Dave,


Dixie Car
Dixie Enjoyng the Drive.

Hello from the middle of nowhere!!!


We're currently on Interstate 5, somewhere between Eugene Oregon and Sacramento California, on our way down to our place in Palm Springs for a bit of a break. We decided to drive so that Dixie can come with us; like any good Canadian, she absolutely loves the sun and heat of the desert.


I have to say that she is a great little traveller, she has a comfy bed in the backseat and she spends most of her time napping but every once in a while she pokes her head up to see where we are. We make lots of pee stops and she is just happy to be hanging out with her peeps. She's enjoying the scenery, that is, for as long as she can keep her eyes open.


I don't think I've mentioned Dixie in the newsletter for a couple of months. She's doing well and is as cute as ever, but we did have a bit of a health scare a few weeks ago. We've known for about a year now that she has a heart-murmur and the vet said to just keep an eye on her and don't let her exert herself too much. Well, one day last month she collapsed when we were out for our morning walk, which of course was very scary. The vet put her on 2 new meds and she is doing much better now. Phew!!!


We can really tell that Dixie's starting to get up there in age now. She's got a lot of grey hair around her face (as you can see in the picture), and we've also noticed that her hearing and eyesight isn't what it used to be. It was actually quite funny, a couple of weeks ago we were out for a walk and a woman wearing black furry boots walked past us and Dixie thought they were 2 small dogs and starting barking at her boots. The woman was wondering what was wrong with our dog!! HAHA
