Sunday, The parties over.

We were up before the sun around 04:45AM Donna got the coffee going and we enjoyed a couple of cups at the table in the trailer since the Rally closed last night and there would be no free breakfast today, while we were enjoying each others company we heard snoring and turned around and this is what we found on the couch.


Rigg’s snoring up a storm, sounded like a neighbor running a generator.

He must have been beat from his day of walks and playing because he slept in until after 07:00AM, then it was playtime as usual with ball chasing and pestering for attention, Hear he is watching his Mom do some blogging.


                         Rigg’s and Donna.

It’s 09:00AM and in a little while Sam will go out and hitch up, he doesn’t want to get in a hurry since we don’t have far to go home so he said he will wait until there is no line at the dump station.

About 11:00AM we headed to the dump station it had two lanes and we didn’t have to wait, most people were just dumping the tanks and pulling out, but since Sam has to winterize it as soon as we get home before he leaves for PA. he had to flush the black tank really good so they would both be empty as possible, he also drained the fresh water tank and left the valve open so the sloshing would empty that completely. It really only took about 10 minutes longer and now he can blow everything out and put some antifreeze in the bottom of the tanks and in the P traps and be done.

Rigg’s of course had his nose glued to the window next to the mirror where he could watch his Daddy the whole time and slopper and whine. What a Daddy’s boy.

It was a nice trip home, about 90minutes and we got back at about 1:00PM Sam unhitched and he said he would winterize it tomorrow and defrost the fridge and have it ready to sit until next trip.

Now it is back to the grind for Donna and the Dardenne Prairie routine for about a week before Sam leaves.

Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.


  1. Good Gravy, what a hound you have! A real couch potato! :)

  2. Gypsy used to sleep like that...My favorite thing about that position is that their "dog lips" also flop out...Sounds like you had a great time...Keep trying to talk Donna into Florida....

  3. You had a great time at the Rally, too bad you have to winterize when you get home though! Rigg's sure must have been tired to sleep in!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing your rally experience with us! And that Riggs just totally outdid himself, that is for sure. He will have doggie dreams about his wonderful prizewinning feat, and will swagger down the runway in his sleep.

  5. Riggs cracks me up! Glad you all enjoyed the rally so much and arrived back home safe and sound. Enjoy the week ahead folks!

  6. I have never liked having to do that PITA winterizing stuff & that has always been motivation enough for me to get on the road & out of town before freeze up.

  7. Glad you had a good time at the rally.

    At least Riggs kept it covered up with his tail,better than Max does.

  8. Glad you really enjoyed the rally. We have a Shih Tzu that sleeps the same way. His snoring is not as loud as I bet Riggs' is. It's a cute way for them to sleep.
    Glad you got home safe and all is well.
    Take care and have a good week.
