The trip home was relatively uneventful. We had a couple of challenges along the way home – namely the motor for the wipers finally died and we had to pull over during a sudden downpour right on the boarder of Pennsylvania and Ohio – but otherwise, the only annoying thing is that it was a long trip. The dogs held up well and napped most of the way home.
We had such a wonderful trip in both Portsmouth and Washington D.C. The dogs received lots of compliments on their behavior because they stayed when we set them up for photos in Washington or at various scenic stops along the way. They loved every moment of the attention and lapped it up in typical pit bull fashion.
Work calls to start back up tomorrow. While I’m not looking forward to it, it will be good to get back to being industrious. Between work and planning our wedding reception (July 21st), we’ll be very busy these next few weeks and the vacation gave us a respite from the normal hustle and bustle of our day to day lives.
I’m hoping the weather cools off here soon as the temperatures in the high 90s and 100s are not conducive to training the dogs and they are sorely missing the structure and mental stimulation we get from training. It’s been rather annoying dealing with four very high drive dogs and no actual direction for them to go because of the sheer heat and concern for their safety. Ah, well…we’ll get back into the groove again.
Here are a few pictures from our trip. You can enjoy the rest here.
