Hound of the Bakersfields

Still chillin’ here in Bakersfield.  Latest word on the leveling jack is that it should arrive at Camping World Friday or Monday.  Still a while before I can run.


Camping World gave me a check for SOA.  I’ve been to all of the motorcycle dealers in town (both of ’em) and followed up on  all the Craigslist adds (one).  I rode a BMW C650GT and a Honda Gold Wing GL1800, both good rides, but the colors (bright red and Mountain Dew yellow, respectively), well I just couldn’t.

At this point I’m still getting around in the Chevy Spark I rented from Enterprise.  It appears to have a top speed of 60 MPH, maybe a safety feature.

CW is still working on the trailer (bent axle, bent wheel chock), and is waiting for the replacement ladder to come in to finish up the  body work on the RV.

Many thanks to those with suggestions for Keira’s separation anxiety, but so far there is no effect.  I’ve tried the Thundershirt, Remedy, Quiet Moments biscuits, benedryl, distracting food toys (e.g. kong).  Keira still goes into full alarm mode within seconds of me stepping outside and keeps it up no matter how long it takes.

Dash surfing. Yes she's overheating, but not because she's locked in a hot RV. A/C is on and it's 72 inside. She's exhausted from running full out, whining and howling for the last 10 minutes.

I’m pretty worried about her.  I don’t know how much stress she can take.  I’m seeing doggie xanax in her future.

  1. Hate to say it, but maybe another beagle and a large cage is the solution. Either that or a doggie helmet and seat on the passenger seat of goldwing or ultra classoc of anarchy 🙂
