Look what I got!! Meet Big Earl!!

Hi everybody, Brutus here!  

Mom is letting me do the post today since I was so excited about my new toy.  She feels bad that some of you were worried after reading her post yesterday, but I can assure you that all is well. 

Sure, I got stranded in my crate more than I'd like lately (no, Mango - it's not a shoebox!!  You make us laugh, you big silly guy!) and mom & dad kept going away for the day to "look at something."  They kept saying that when this project was done I woundn't have to stay home every time they went away. I was mystified, and to be honest, a little worried myself...  Mason couldn't figure it out either, he said he'd never seen them talk about something like this before.

Mom brought home some pictures one day and started showing everybody something.  For a little bit I thought I might be getting a little brother or sister, especially when they said they had named it "Big Earl".   But then I saw this picture that mom took:

What the heck is that?!?  Some kind of alien symbol?  

Mom kept saying, just wait your are going to like what we bought you - but what was I to think?  Then this Monday, they disappeared again.  A few hours later I heard strange sounds outside in the driveway.  Mason & I thought for sure an alien spacecraft had indeed landed.  

To our relief mom & dad appeared, and when they took outside to see what they'd bought us we couldn't believe our eyes!  Just like Fiona, we got our very own Whellie House!!  No more "spas' (kennels, whatever - we weren't fooled...), now Mason & I get to come with when our humans go on vacation!  Bir Earl turned out to be a motorcoach!!
Look out USA - here we come!!

Come on in, let me give you a tour!!

Wow, check out the view from up here!!

Look, it's got a comfy bed for me..

And a bathroom for the humans:

There's even a place where mom & dad can get clean (hope they don't try to get me in there...)

Here's Dad in his main role as chief navigator:

And later trying to make some sense of the satellite TV...  Mason got bored & took a nap.

And when we get wherever we are going, mom can cook foodables in here, and then curl up on the couch with me afterwards!  Big Earl ROCKS!

So I think Mason & I are pretty lucky dogs!  We are very excited that we can come along with mom and dad when they travel from now on, either to tailgate at a football game or travel cross-country to see a new National Park.  Maybe we can even visit some of our DWB buddies someday!!  Coming soon to a town near you - Big Earl!!

Honk if you see us :)

My mom has wanted a Big Earl for a looong time!

You are one lucky dude, Brutus!

Hi Brutus,

Well that sure will be better than being stuck in doggy jail! Very nice!! Mom loves the color, it matches her truck.

Oh wow! A house on wheels! Big Earl is great. We know you and Mason are going to love traipsing about with your Mom and Dad!

Chihuahua kisses,

Maxmom said...

Hey there, Brutus and Mason
...and very glad to make your acquaintance!
Eish!...that is a hotel on wheels! We could run trenches in that vehicle (shshshsh they didn't hear that - because we want to come with you on vacation!)
BUT the big question is:
"DOES THAT THING HAVE INTERNET CONNECTION?" Afterall, what use is it if you go off on holiday and we can't see what ya doing?!

Also, and by the way - The chief navigator should be YOU! (or Mason, since we like labradoods!)
Hope we can be friends!
Lots of licks

Jan Mader said...

Oh how wonderful. We have a very old and small version that we'll call "Ancient Earl", but I still get to go on adventures with my people in it!
