He had a yearning look in his eyes and thought he was going to ask to come with us, I wouldn’t be astonished if he ended up in our carriage tomorrow.
A first chapter of my new book:
WOOF! WOOF!!! “Jackie Lee run!” Casey was urging me to follow her, I was trying to get a look at the guy chasing us.
Good grief, couldn’t we just ever have fun and not be chased? It didn’t look that way. The next thing I felt was an arrow bounce off my armor. I barked at Casey.
She looked down at me, “Are you ok boy?” Before I could muster a bark, Casey was hit in the back with an arrow and fell. I turned around and tried to fight off the interlopers. They sprayed me with pepper spray and I passed out, but not before I saw them carry Casey off. When I came too, Peter was trying to get me up.
“What happened boy? Where’s Casey?” I opened my eyes slowly and tried to get up. I couldn’t look at Peter everything was bleary. I was a bit wobbly too, but I joined T.J. In sniffing Casey’s trail. Peter walked behind us…..we ended up by a cave in the mountains of the Pyrenees, we were in France, staying in the Mid-Pyrenees. The name of the cave was Pech Merle, it was said you could travel to the center of the earth through this cave. We weren’t in the part where it cost $175 dollars to enter, we were in the free part. In the other part, there were prehistoric paintings on the walls. I hoped Casey wasn’t in the center of the earth! We were here to talk to a dealer of carnival horses, I had a bad feeling this was related with our last mystery, not the horses in our basement; I certainly hoped I was wrong.
Peter said he was going to investigate the cave, then looked at us, “Boys, stay here, I’m going in. I’ll call if I need you, guard the opening.” Then Peter bent over, because the opening wasn’t very tall, and disappeared.
T.J. Looked at me, what happened?
I’m back home again. I arrived a week ago, I had a wonderful vacation in France and Catalonia. I swam with the fish in Costa Brava in the Mediterranean. I sure could use some fresh Mediterranean water to get rid of my allergies being back home on the farm. Haying, flowers blooming. Anyway, I took 2,600 photos for my new books coming out. I will be posting photos and if you check out my Instagram posts, there are many photos posted already.
“Wow! There it is on the hill! It is gorgeous! Too bad it had to get destroyed.” Casey looked sad. “Hmm, too bad we can’t change history.”
“Haha, that would be awful Casey! You know we can’t tamper with history, only God can do that. Come on, let’s enjoy our stay.”
A great road trip to an old old city built of stone. The US soldiers came here and were hidden in WW 2 and you can just imagine what was going on in the town.
I will be back in September with new ideas, photos and stories. I’ll be working on my two new works while I’m away. I can be contacted on Instagram. Have a great summer.
