You heard right, folks. We went on our first family vee-cation last week! It was fantastic! I decided the best way to tell you about the trip was to create a photo journal. So here you have it...

We arrived in Sunriver to snowfall. When we awoke on the morn of daddy's birthday, this was the scene. Oh, and mommy and daddy made me walk in this cold white stuff. They're crazy!

I learned the beauty of vee-cationing is that you get to just lie around...much like my normal daily routine, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Daddy enjoyed the reclining chairs for reading. I enjoyed his lap for napping.

There's my mommy. Isn't she purdy?

I had thought that I would narrowly escape bathing while on this so-called vee-cation. But apparently I was stinky from all that walking around, shopping, driving and sleeping. Bah!

During the first few days of our trip, I enjoyed the heavenly bliss that is "table scraps" -- a pleasure I am not often afforded at home. Unfortunately, this little piece of heaven upset my digestive tract. After vomiting three times in four days and not going poo for two days, my daddy and mommy decided it was best to take me to the area vet for a little check to ensure I didn't have a blockage. The good news is, I didn't. The bad news is, that nice vet lady stuck her finger up my bum and took out one of the golden nuggets of poo I was saving for later. Sheesh lady! Didn't anyone tell her how rude that is? She also gave me subcutaneous fluids, causing me to look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame for the evening. On the plus side, these next photos show of my fantastic harness daddy bought me at Downtown Doggie in Bend. It was a great little shop, and daddy even bought me a Spiderman shirt! I'll showcase that in a later post.

WARNING! The following photos contain graphic enlargement of the author's back. These photos are not for the faint of heart or overly sensitive.

Can we go home now? This isn't nearly as good as my bed at home that Nana bought me.

Hype, hype!!! We're home!! Why do I have to keep posing for these cheesey photos! I need to go to the gym build more muscle so I can evade daddy's strong biceps!

Look, ma! I taught daddy a new trick!

Ah, home sweet home!
