Homeward Bound: Welcome to the Golden State!
HOMEWARD BOUND: THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY OF SAM AND LILLY
The travelers are in California now! They have crossed the desert and are on their way north through the central valley.
Mary, the lucky one who spent all last week with Sam and Lilly, reports that the day got off to a great start:
"The first hand-off went well this morning, and I was able to hold back the tears until the drive home alone. My, oh my, how these two will endear themselves to you! They woke me up this morning with kisses and licks. Aside from hot coffee, I can't imagine a better greeting! LOL!
"Sam has become a clown once he allowed himself to relax! There's much more to him than that macho, stoic facade he projects initially.
"Safe travels to all the folks driving this mission. It's been an honor to be a part of it."
At the moment, our transport is a bit behind schedule after the dogs stopped for an impromptu meet and greet in the Riverside area. David and Richard, who drove them from Blythe to Riverside to Glendale, wanted to make sure their families got to meet the big dogs in person! Everyone involved with the trip is in great good humor as the dogs motor along.
