It's 4 am.  I can't sleep. King & Molly & Daddy are all sleeping sound.  King's breathing is slow and methodical. I think he's feeling better. At least he seems to be resting very well. 

There's a skiff of fresh snow covering the already white and frozen ground.  I've checked and rechecked road conditions.  Compact snow and slushy sections. The weather for later in the day is to be cloudy. Some weather sites say there is a chance of flurries.  We have good snow tires and Mark is a good driver.   

Dave and Brian are leaving Naniamo some time early this morning,  We'll meet them in Cache Creek.  They'll phone ahead of time to let us know when they will arrive for us to meet them.   They are bringing our new family member to us.  Duchess!  I hope she's resting well.  She has no idea she is coming to live with us,  For all she knows this is just a wonderful road trip she is taking with her new Daddy Dave.   

King & Molly have no idea we are about to expand our family.  They should be used to dogs coming and going through our home.  I doggy sit so many different dogs.  We have not changed our daily routines. Nothing has been any different than on any other given day.  There has been nothing to indicate we will have a visitor.  

King had a dodgy tummy earlier.  A bout of vomitting and a VERY LOOSE stool yesterday afternoon.  He ate a small portion of rice for dinner and kept it down.  Perhaps it's just a 12 hour thing.  I'm thinking he probably ate too many of the mountain ash berries combined with too much bird seed in the snow.  He finds it in the snow and munches it down like they are cookies.  He is well fed in our care and does not go hungry.  I think he may have learned to eat these things when he was pack leader in Bella Coola.  Old habits die hard.   

I'll give him rice again for breakfast and see how he does.  He can rest during our car ride to pick up Duchess. I'm sure he'll be fine. Better to take him with us than to leave him home to worry on his own. He does NOT like to be left on his own.  He wont be. 

Time to try to read a book and fall back to sleep for awhile.

Will it work? I hope so.


We'll be there to bring you home soon Dutchess :-)
