So long, farewell …

I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye.

All my bags are packed and I’m ready to go.

But not before saying hello and goodbye to Koda – a nine year old cockapoo.

Koda is Benny’s friend who lives in the same building where we stayed.

We’ve come to realise that in the US, the Doodles tend to be Goldendoodles or Labradoodles and then every other doodle. Very few Cockapoos. I don’t think I actually met one till Koda.

He reminded us a lot of Rusty – same hairdo!

It was lovely just meeting him and his grandma –

And then it was one last goodbye to Bennie.

And we’re off.

Are you coming, Mum?

The doorman hailed use taxi and we piled into it with one more bag than when we came with – all of them completely stuffed with gifts from friends we’ve met – and of course something for George. And off we went to the airport … on a long journey home.

May’s comment: We’ve squeezed in every minute our stay to meet so many wonderful pups and seeing old friends and meeting new ones. It has truly been a really lovely trip – in NYC and LA, we were two days too short. But we have George to go home to and lots of things to do. There will always be a next time.
