Preparations

Trusty VW all checked up for a long trek.

Trusty VW all checked up for a long trek.

The yoga shala was closed today on account of the moon day. It worked out perfectly for me as I needed to take our car in to the service center for it's health check-up. I wanted it to be given a good and thorough review before I go pick up this beauty:

Willow the Service Dog

Willow the Service Dog

I am so excited to be going to pick up Willow the Service Dog. Yes, I already checked to make sure she'll fit in the trusty little car. I am feeling extremely grateful I have such a fuel efficient car. Anyway, I strongly suggest you check out her Facebook page. I don't know what Willow will be sharing but with eyes that beautiful and wise, I suspect there will be some amazing snippets of wisdom.

During the drive half-way across the country and back, I'll be listening to some audiobooks and university lectures both to learn and to lull Willow to sleep. I hope to grab some great pics as well as I've never been along such a southernly route before. Admittedly, it's a quick dash and back as the priority is to get this service dog to her new home, but there's always something interesting to see (and photograph) on a journey if I just look carefully enough. Willow herself will likely provide many photographic opportunities.
