Liz: We took the family on a trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
Maggie: I thought I was going for a ride in the car and I ended up at the Vet!
Liz: We decided to wing it and go without knowing where we were going to stay. We ended up at the Riu Bambu. It was a very nice resort! Here is a picture of the lobby, which, as you look through it, can see clear down to the beach and the ocean:
Maggie: I could not believe they dropped me off and left. I was so upset!
Liz: I was very worried about leaving Maggie at the Vet, but I knew they would make sure she at least was drinking. The last time we boarded her, as you may remember, she did not drink any water and ended up at the Vet with a severe case of dehydration, and we came close to losing her. Speaking of water…
We flew 4 hours to Punta Cana, and packed our swimsuits in our carry-on. Which, I must say, was a great idea. We got to the resort in time for lunch and then a quick change, and into the pool we went!
Maggie: I had no idea when they would be back. I decided to make the best of it, but on my own terms. I had a nice-sized kennel, and Mom had packed my soft blanket and a fat chew toy bone. Much to my surprise, the Vet Techs were very nice to me and paid me a lot of attention. I also got one one one play time at least twice a day, plus walks.
Liz: We got to the beach and Jamie and Erik went nuts in the waves. Wow, the water was so warm! I loved the white sugar sand and the palm trees.
Here is a picture of Erik and Liz at the beach:
Maggie: I got a little frisky and I broke a nail. One of the nice staffers trimmed it down for me. I decided not to sleep until my family came to get me. I wondered where they were? My nail hurt and at night I was lonely.
Part 2 – coming up!
Woof! Love, Maggie
