This is for Dirk

OK - We decided on getting another dog and have been registering with border collie rescue groups for a while. Shiba, who passed was a border collie / lab mix..

Anyway, we found one in Sacramento named "Flint" who was very sweet.. and of course brought him home... But now we keep on calling him "Fin" by mistake.. we're trying to use "Flynn" as it's easier, but it seems to come out "Fin"..

That darn "Merritt Rally" !!

Re: This is for Dirk

Ok - he's a rescue dog and today was his first full day with us.. we really walked up some hills and at our local marina (SF Bay). I think we kind-of tired him out..

Jeff and Liana:

Congratulations on your new dog! I just had a look at http://www.winnebagoind.com/products...floorplans.php

Have you decided where your new dog will sleep? The Queen Size Bed? Are you planning to come to the Escape Rally in June?

Well hopefully "Fin/Flynn" will sleep under the table in dinette area.. The table itself doesn't have a support leg that hits the floor.. it's more like an "angle support", so we're hoping to put the dog bed there..

As for the Escape Rally, we don't know.. last time we had plans to incorporate the "Rally" into our Alaska trip.. but it was "way too ambitious" with Shiba and it just didn't work.. But now things are different and it may work out well.. Of course we'll have to hide our heads in shame not even owning a trailer now ..

Re: This is for Dirk

We gave up! We kept on calling him "Fin" instead of "Flynn"... so we changed his name to "Sammy
