Hello everyone! It’s me, Makena, your favorite dog blogger.
I’m still in Alaska, and my parents have gone back to work for a few weeks. I’m quite happy about this, because I need to make sure they can keep my belly full of food and treats. They work, so I can have a good life!
I’m also a creature of habit, so staying in one place for a few weeks is better for my routine. I love traveling, checking out all the new smells as we move around, but all that time in my crate was getting a bit much for me. At 15, I’m not a spring chicken anymore! I love chicken, by the way…
Before we left Yuma, Arizona to go on this extended vacation, my mom calculated how much dry and canned dog food I would need. I can get 4 meals out of one can, so my mom had Chewy.com deliver enough food to last me through my trip.
Now that we are staying longer, I was concerned about running out. My mom went to order from Chewy for the remainder of our visit, only to discover they do not ship to Alaska. What?! I went into panic mode, thinking they were going to ration out my canned food. But my parents found a Petco store in Fairbanks that has my brand of food, so they stocked up again (at quite a higher price than Chewy). So I’m all good now!
Apparently dogs and cats in Alaska are Seattle Seahawks fans, as they had a large display of apparel in the Petco store.
There is only one team worthy of my affection!
I spent the summer hanging out with my buddy Cody. We said our goodbyes before he headed back to Florida with his parents.
But then that darn boy dog decided to give me a big smooch! Geez, I’m not that kind of girl…
I’m now back with my pals Finn and Duffy. I like to keep my eye on them from a safe distance.
And just so they know not to cross over into my turf, I made sure to mark the boundaries.
I’m looking forward to getting back on the road in a few weeks. I love exploring. I also like warm and sunny weather,\. It’s too chilly for this old gal to be hanging outside. My only complaint here in Skagway is the fact that my parents work until 5:30 pm, so my 5:00 canned food time gets delayed. But they are promising me both warm weather, and prompt dinner in the future, so I’m going to be patient.

I was so happy to hear from Makena! 15 is awesome 👏🏼. My Margot had to say goodbye & cross the rainbow bridge back in February. She was 14 1/2. She loved hearing about Makena’s adventures!!
Cheryl we are all saddened to hear about Margot. So tough to deal with. Blessings
