My sister was just a LITTLE excited and she drove straight through the night!!! I stayed up with her and before we knew it, we were driving through downtown Chicago at 4:30am! We made it to Minnesota by 11am, picked up my new furry nephew and we were back on the road by 1pm! We would have made it home to PA by 1am or 2am but Momma accidentally missed a little turn and we went to Kalamazoo on accident, so we stopped there for dinner. We walked the puppy outside of Arby’s and we ate in the parking lot before continuing our journey.
Little did we know what was happening just 5 miles from us. I don’t know what the purpose of this little detour was because we were unknowingly in incredible danger. The shootings were taking place while we were there and the shooter had to have driven close by the Arby’s at some point that night because it was directly in between two of the shooting locations. We are SO thankful for God’s protection and we’re praying for those poor families who are experiencing such devastation right now.
So we completed our journey home at 4:30am. Shuba sniffed around his new home and then it was crate time. He cried for about 15 minutes and then went to bed!! YAY for amazing puppies!! Bokeh did NOT handle his crate that well when we brought him home!!
Some people have asked “Was that road trip miserable?!” I can see how they would think that. We were gone for 36 hours and NEVER slept in a bed! We just took turns sleeping in the back of the car! It wasn’t the most comfortable experience of my life but we had FUN! I love my momma and my sister!! We did this trip for the memories and the fun of spending time together and it was so worth it!!! Enjoy meeting our newest member of the family!!! This is SHUBA! “Shuba” is Russian for “Furry Coat”….. hey, they didn’t question us when we named our dog after a photography term and so we’re not questioning them!!! haha!
