My human, Mia, has been working so hard. She is so inspired by my plan. My plan is to go all over the United States meeting new and wonderful people, to share their stories, and to find the connection between all people. Mia is so wonderful, and I want to meet more wonderful humans like her.

Savannah, GA - I don't feel so well -Nov 1st

 Since we're headed south I need a hair cut before heading into warmer weather. So this morning Mia took me to the groomer.  While the lovely lady was buzzing my hair down my skin split open.

It turns out I was dehydrated and when I'm dehydrated my skin gets very thin.  It didn't hurt.

Luckily Mia had brought me to a groomer's office in a Veterinary Clinic. So the groomer immediately took me to the veterinarian. The vet sealed the sore with surgical glue.

I asked the groomer to call Mia to tell her about what happened to me.  When the groomer called Mia she was almost to Savannah about an hour away from where I was. Mia turned right back around and came to see me & to talk to the Vet.

The Vet and Mia talked about how I got dehydrated and what Mia needed to do to get me better.

Then the Vet put fluids in my back for me to absorb.  I did feel better once I got it all absorbed.

I got dehydrated because I stopped drinking water a couple of weeks ago.  I didn't like how the water tasted.  Mia said the water all over the USA tastes different, so I was hoping the water would get better real soon.

Mia and the Vet decided I'd be happier if we traveled with bottled water for me the rest of the trip.  I agreed, so I'm now traveling with Distilled water.


  1. If you really arent feeling water one day Taco, have Mia pick you up some children pedialite. It contains a lot of vitamins, electrolites, and has a sweet taste so I doubt you will turn it down. They have it at most grocery stores.

  2. Oh Thank you for the suggestion.

    Mia has tried to give me Pedialite before and I don't like it.

    But the Vet did tell Mia to buy Low Sodium Chicken broth and to put that in my water. Mia hasn't tried it yet, but I bet I'll like it when she does.

    Hopefully I get that special treat for a New Year's Surprise!!! :)
