Hi Every Buddy, It's me Star, and guess what? Me and Riley went to beautiful Colorado!

It all started like this: Every year daddy takes mommy to Colorado for her birthday and we always have to stay home! Well it was my birthday too, so no fair! I found myself in deep depression.

Then the most intelligent brother in the whole wide world said, not to worry Star, I got it all figured out! I"ll hide in mommy's suitcase and you hide in her backpack. She'll never notice, she's a blond you know?"

Now wasn't that smart of him? Put your tongue back in Riley, I just got through saying you were smart!

We zipped everything up and the next thing we knew, we were at the air port. At Security the man said "What are those two little white, furry things?" Mommy said, Gee, I don't remember packing my ear muffs???

In no time at all, we were in our rental car and off to the mountains!

Whoa! No buddy told us about altitude sickness! Mommy is holding on to us real tight so we won't fall off the mountain. Isn't it beautiful up here?

The first thing we wanted to do was go mining for Amethyst and get rich!

So we went into a beautiful deep purple cave. See how it sparkles? Butt it sure was spooky down there and I saw a bat! It scared the living pee-pee out of me! Then Riley said that's okay, the bats do it all the time and watch out Star, you almost stepped in their poop! I said, that's it! I'm out of here!

After that, we were starving for Mexican food. When all of a sudden, a lady came over to our table and yelled at our pawrents! "You can't bring your dogs into our restaurant and PLEASE get them off the table!" Then they all started laughing like Idiots and we still don't know what was so funny? Butt the food was sure good!

On the way to Ridgeway, we heard there was a fire! We jumped in this old fire truck and rushed over to see if we could help.

I got so nervous, I pee-peed all over the fire and put it out! The Fire Chief said I did such a good job, he made me the Official Mascot of his old Fire Truck! Mommy and daddy were so proud butt Riley just said, "What-Ever???" I think it's pretty cool myself.

Then we arrived in Silverton. The owner of this pretty pink truck let us ride on the hood if we promised not to scratch it. When he said that I got so nervous I pee-peed all over it, butt don't tell him!

He also owned a wonderful Bar-B-Q place called: "THEE PITTS AGAIN" Be sure and visit it if you are ever in Silverton, Colorado. It's grrreat!

This is their pet, Bear Man Pig. He was really friendly and in fact, he squeezed us so tight that WE BOTH...... yep, you guessed it, --- ---- ALL OVER HIM! Butt don't tell his mommy, she just changed his shirt!

After eating all that good Bar-B-Q, we were ready to go kayaking. Here we are getting all strapped in and ready to hit the rocks! I mean water! It's a good thing we are experienced Kayakers!

Then we drove to Telluride to visit Tom Cruise and then Oprah. When we arrived at their homes, both of their butt-lers told us to hit the road! Butt before we did, I pee-peed on their door mats! That will teach those Snooty-Pattooties! I bet Betty White wouldn't treat us that way!

So then we stopped by Schaussi's Alpen Schatz (try saying that ten times real fast) to buy a book. The nice lady there let us play with all her stuffies and we even rode a donkey. Now that's ruff'n it!

On our last day in Colorado, we went to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison for a little hike. Only this time mommy let us sit all by ourselves in her backpack overlooking the canyon as you can see in the first photo.

The canyon is a zillion thousand feet deep and I was so terrified, guess what I did in mommy's backpack? Nope!....WORSE! Well I"m sorry, butt it was scary up there!

Next year Riley wants to go bungy jumping at the Royal George. I DON'T THINK SO!!!

On the way out of the canyon we pretended to be chipmunks and we almost got run over! Some people just don't know how to read!

We're home now and all tuckered out from our fun and very exciting trip to Colorado.

Mommy said we were so well behaved except for a few incidents here and there, that we can go with them on their next trip to North Carolina in the Fall and I can't wait!

I luved Colorado, butt there's no place like home and on mommy's and daddy's bed. I only wish Riley would quit singing "MOUNTAIN HIGH IN COLORADO". He's driving me crazy!

Dear Riley and Star
I felt like I was right there with you as you told the wonderful story.
I felt my tummy drop too when you looked over the scary edge to the canyon below.
I felt that water splash in my face as you went down the rapids.
The canyons and amethyst were so beautiful.
I think it was so smart of you both to hide in those bags, so you could go on this trip,
Thank you for sharing this awsome journey with us.

i think its a really good idea to leave your babies at home or in the car and just use the cutouts for anything outside. your lives can and will change in an instant if you dont watch them like a hawk. i have a maltipoo and he goes everywhere with me but i know i have to be super vigilante or else he might just be a sad memory.
