While visiting with Auntie Amanda, Wendell drove off "on caravan" to get a feel for the real estate biz. Real estate agents take a tour, or caravan, to preview newly listed properties and keep tabs on the market. It usually consists of 3-4 agents to a car, with 6-8 cars in a caravan. They spend 5-10 minutes at each house and visit nearly a dozen houses on a tour. Of course, Wendell rode in the DROOLMBL.

As always, it looks like Wendell had a great time with the ladies. You go, boy!

Wendell traveled around with Jennifer. She's dog-friendly but a little embarrassed at starring in Wendell's blog. The final house on the caravan was a beautiful aerie perched on Overlook Mountain, with a view of the Hudson Valley. Wendell and Auntie Amanda drank in the view.

Location, Location, Location

Auntie Amanda invited Wendell to spend a day with her as a realtor. First, Wendell checked out her office. If you walked into a room with 10 desks, could you pick out Amanda’s? Here's a hint -- look for the spot with the most basset crap!

Wendell Pawing in from the Dogskills!

Wendell arrived in the Dogskills on August 8 for an extended stay.

This was actually his second visit. His first was in April, when he traveled while perched atop a mound of BoardWaddle purchases. Wendell and Bobby bonded instantly and were in such deep conversation that they forgot to watch their steps. Bobby fell and cracked his pelvis, ending up in the hospital emergency room.

This second time around, there was a happy reunion between Bobby, now recovered, and Wendell. Brie could only look on in disbelief at the deep bond they’d developed.

There was so much to catch up on. Bobby, who has never been a slow talker, spent much of the evening recounting his hospitalization. Wendell had seen Brie, Janey and Babe at Slobberfest while visiting with Aunties Pat and Carol in July, and he heard all about the recovery. Being the perfect gentleman, he listened with only the slightest hint of a stifled yawn.

Hangin' with Toby & the Gang

I've been so busy, I forgot to introduce you properly to my current foster family. They're terrific. My foster mom & dad and the girls really showed me a great time.

Of course, I had to take some time out to hang with my foster brudder Toby. He's a great guy. We had several long chats. I like Toby!

Wendell Visits DISNEY WORLD!!

Can you believe it? I got to go to the Magic Kingdom!!! I had the BEST time!

At the Polynesian, they gave me my very own lei! I rode the Monorail with Isabella too.

I saw Minnie Mouse -- and had to gaze into her big bahrootiful eyes. And I met a fellow woofer who was being trained as search and rescue dog!

I decided to ride the trolley -- do you think they'll let me drive? Hey, Goofy and I really do see eye to eye!

It was hot in that Florida sun, but my foster mom Candy helped me get a nice cool drink! Candy is the best!

I decided I HAD to ride a horse after all! I was a little nervous, but Sophia kept me company so I wasn't afraid. Then I went on the Magic Carpet Ride.

When I walked off of Peter Pan's Flight, I won a year of a million dreams. They gave me special mouse ears to prove it. I might just wish to stay here forever!

Trip to the Farmers Market = Yum

I've been super busy today. First we ventured out to the local Farmers Market. Naturally, I had to check out the kettle corn! (It was delish!) The fresh bread smelled so good, I had to get a loaf! Then I realized, what's bread without cheese (I LOVE cheese)!

What do they mean "No pets allowed"! Don't they know who I am??!! Harrumph. Hey Mom, I found the BIGGEST water dish ever!

I'm Famous -- I'm in the Senior Houndsabound Debut Newsletter

I MUST be famous -- because I'm mentioned in the FIRST ever Senior Houndsabound newsletter! How kewl is that!

If you didn't get yours, just e-mail my former foster mom Wendie at, and she can add you to the list. You don't want to miss out on all the latest news on the Bounders -- AND Elder Clara herself has her very own column. She's really wise -- so I know I'll be writing to her for advice on all sorts of things.
