Here Comes the Rain!

It was another quite day. It has started to rain, and the forecast is for rain all day tomorrow. It will be a hard job, but I will try to keep Uncle Steve's lap warm.

As you can see, Uncle Steve is keeping me in training for catching treats. He switched from the little Milk Bone treats to the little fishes, and it threw me off. I will have to get him to give me more training.

Your trip just sounds neater and neater with every message. Uncle Steve told me with the Mag Lev train they could send me treats faster than any other method that currently exists. Getting me more treats faster sounds like a brilliant invention. We all can't wait to hear more details about your trip.

Dear Speck,

Today we went to the Canton Fair Trade Show for the second time. We've spent two full days there now, and only covered about 20% of the exhibition space. We've been to some big trade shows before, but nothing even close to this. We're finding lots of neat products for Dad to sell to catalogues so he can continue to support your extravagant doggie lifestyle. We found lots of dog toy booths, and are bringing home catalogues for you to help us pick out the best stuff to show the catalogues. So far, my favorites are the doggie lifevests and a dog bed shaped like a fuzzy airplane, or a pink fuzzy convertible.

Tonight, we went to another street market to do some last minute shopping for presents. They have t-shirts that are trying to say things in english, but aren't translated right, so their hilarious! Dad bought his entire spring wardrobe on that one street. Later, we went to dinner at a Cantonese restaurant near our hotel. Gotta admit that we're actually growing tired of Chinese food. They sure do love the deep fryer over here, and I'm breaking out like a 15 year old. Awesome. That said, we had a fabulous meal! We really didn't know what we were ordering until it came, so that was pretty lucky to get all great dishes. We had these little fried breads that were like a cross between cornbread and sweet hawaiian bread, Beef in a teriyaki type sauce with cubed tofu breaded in an oniony breading, shrimp wrapped in batter so they looked like pronto pups with shrimp tails haning out the back and steamed bread dumplings surrounding the same kind of shredded vegetables and pork that eggrolls normally have in them. It was all Hen Hao Chi (very delicious).

Tomorrow, we leave for home, but we don't get there until the next day. We'll leave Guangzhou at 2:00 in the afternoon, fly to Beijing, then to Seoul, where we have a nine hour layover (we booked a room in a hotel that they have inside the international terminal, so we can at least lay down for a little while) then we leave Seoul at 9:00 the next morning and fly for 13 hours, to Dallas, then to home. That even sucked to type! We should get home early afternoon on Tuesday (if we make all of our connections) then we need some serious doggy time!

Thank AK and US for taking such good care of you. We'll take them out to eat (for anything BUT Chinese food) when we get home to thank them in person!

Love, Mom and Dad
