Our OKC Adventure

Arik and I had a rough time getting to OKC. Originally our plan was to stay overnight in Salina or Wichita KS, but low and behold, some baseball tournament was going on IN OKC, and caused every single hotel within a 400 mile radius to be booked -_-.  We ended up having to drive straight to OKC, arriving by around 5am, and attempting to sleep in the car in a Bass Pro shop parking lot until 11am.  The volunteer ended up running late by about 90 minutes, which admittedly did give us a chance to walk around the downtown OKC area with the dogs. They seemed to enjoy this and had a nice time:

And then, finally, at around 1:30, we got to meet Ahri!  She greeted us by running up and sitting, and then flopping over for a belly rub. Within a few minutes of having her meet Winry briefly before being lifted into the back with her, we were off again, back to Colorado.  We made stops every few hours, and eventually made it back by just about midnight.

Needless to say, we are TIRED, and it should take a few days to fully recover from the adventure.  The whole ride, we kept saying, "Poor dog...we'll have really high expectations of her after going through all this trouble...she better be worth it!" Fortunately, as will be discussed in the next post, she really has been above and beyond our expectations!

And while OKC was nicer than I thought it would be, I'll have to keep these photos for memory, since I doubt we'll be going back maybe ever again!

I'm sure that journey will be forgotten about as you get to know Ahri and realise she's meant to be in your family.

Hope you have a lovely day. Sue, Polly & Honey
