First things first, Kelly and Gibson, Betty and Koda, and Karen and Butterball thank you so much for the wonderful treat reviews! I really hope you enjoyed your snacks. I hope to have the shop up and running within the next week or so.
Now to explain where we disappeared to the past two weeks. We went from Idaho to Utah, to Wyoming, to Nebraska, to Iowa, to Illinois, to Indiana, and Michigan. We then traveled back through Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa, but then we ventured to South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, and arrived back in Idaho. If you counted, that's 10 states in just over 2 weeks! Whew!
Now why would we make a crazy trip like that you ask? One of my best friends from high school got married. You may ask yourself, "Why would they drive over 2000 miles with two dogs?" Well we knew we wanted to spend some time with our families in Michigan and it's just too pricey to board the dogs for that long. Plus Bender IS an adventure dog, and this sure was one long adventure!
We did a bunch of touristy stuff along the way. We stopped by The Henry Ford in Detroit, "The Future Birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk" in Riverside Iowa, The Danish Windmill in Elk Horn Iowa, Wall Drug in South Dakota, The Geographic Center of the Country in South Dakota, The Aladdin Tipple in Wyoming, and Devils Tower in Wyoming! We also stopped by Western Michigan University to walk the dogs around campus.

Casey and the dogs in front of Devils Tower. Casey isn't angry it's just difficult to hold 2 dogs still in low light conditions in a busy parking lot.
Bender did surprisingly well in the car this trip. He only panted the first day, after that he sat like a lead brick on our laps. By the end he was even sleeping in the car! Yes, the only way Bender will sit in the car is if he can sit in the front seat on the passenger's lap. Let me tell you, 4 days in a car with a 35lb corgi on your lap isn't as fun as it may sound.
