Keeping Me Company

This evening I needed to drive to the New Orleans airport to pick up my sister-in-law. My friend was going to go with me, but she was too tired. So to keep me from falling asleep on the drive, Delilah opted to come along. She really loves car rides and is a great traveler. She prefers riding in the front seat, but willingly allowed my SIL to sit there on the way home.

Before we started our trip, we went to Starbucks for a raspberry mocha frappucino (no, it's not South Beach friendly and shame on you for even bringing that up). The barrista just had a fit over Delilah sitting up in the front seat like a lady. Delilah is so proper. That's why my stepmom ALWAYS calls her "Miss Delilah."

Delilah is such a love. I really adore her. She was my first Standard Poodle and won my heart in an instant. There's never been a better buddy than my 'Lila. I always tell her she's my heart.

Glad you had some company! TOO CUTE! I won't say anything about the beverage!

Okay, not related to this post of yours but reminded me . . . We (meaning my family) remembered at length your cat in the hotel story when we were staying at a nearby hotel for five days with our two cats. We couldn't find one of them anywhere . . . but I think she hid inside the dresser, going in from the back. I was definitely worried she'd find her way inside the underneath part of the bed.
