Dashurie's Road Trip

With Ashinator in Arizona visiting her daddy Dashurie's been sulking around.  She definitely missed her mommy, so I decided that I'd take her up the hill with me today.  Unbelievably, Mom and Bill hadn't met Dashurie in real life.  When Ashinator got Dash, it was too cold up at the lodge to take her up there.  But now that it's a million degrees down here, it's only a half a million degrees up the hill and thus warm enough for Dash to take a road trip.

I put her in her new hobo sling carrier from CSN Stores, which she loves.  I was pleasantly surprised when the bag came, because I was worried about the vents not being able to provide enough air flow.  The pictures on the site don't show the vents, but when I saw the bag, I noticed that there are two fairly large vents in each side panel of the bag.  The bag also came with a removable fleece bottom, which I took a picture of, but little Miss Dashurie had - ahem - soiled the fleece.



The bag may be a bit big for her, since it is really a dog carrier, but she's not complaining.  She's got room to move around and arrange things the way she likes (she's very particular) and play with her toys.

Of course, we had to put her up on a saddle and get pics, but she's a quick little critter an only one of them turned out...


She got to spend her day in Scooter's house (Scooter is the lodge turtle who is currently living with Nebalee) and had a grand time.  I haven't seen her so active in a long time.  She spent a good half an hour exploring her new digs and arranging her "blanket" just so before she settled down.  When I saw her try to eat the gravel I ran to get her some cat food instead.  She was just beside herself when she got to eat "good" cat food - Science Diet - instead of whatever is on sale that we buy.


She looks kind of scary in this picture, but she was gobbling up the Science Diet so fast I couldn't get a good picture.

She is so cute! I love her little carrier.

Mama Gayle said...

I agree with GB Girl.... Adorable!! And I am so wanting a little carrier like that, but I would have to get a little pet to go in it, LOL...
Maybe I will WAIT on that...at least until my kids are grown, or old enough to take care of it themselves!!
Dash is awesome:P

Oh! A Hedgehog! He is adorable! I wasn't sure exactly what he was at first. You should have gotten a pic of him and the turtle too :)

Vinomom - Scooter's currently living with my sister, so his cage stands empty. There are some cute pics of Dashurie archived around here somewhere.
