Zack and Mack have their bags packed and they are they are definitely ready to go. How do we know? Because when it gets time to leave for the season, they slow down their eating. Of course, the cold weather and rain doesn’t have anything to do with that.
The boys know when its getting time to go. Same with Temple Dog when he was alive. He being a Lhaso Apso. He always knew when it was getting time to go. When we finally took his dish out to be packed, he would follow, go sit in the vehicle and wait until it was time to drive.
Zack and Mack are a little different. They watch us go in and out, with more items going out, than in. They get the clue that something is up. Usually, the night before, I take them out to their tank in the R.V. They have a special tank that is out of plastic, instead of glass. It has a built in “land” area that they like to call home.
I put the boys in there this afternoon and continued on with the business of packing. They would just sit in the same spot. Finally, they turned themselves around in a circle to the spot they were just in. Funny little guys.
Anyway, their bags are packed and they are ready to go. They know the difference between where we live and say, Tucson, or Southern Nevada, or even the Pacific Northwest. It’s the water. They know the difference between the well water at home and the city water we have to treat and use along the road. Of course, they do not stay in the tank while driving. No, we have a special little driving tank for them while travelling. Actually, it’s a plastic box with flap lids . I keep the boys next to me while driving. They settle down pretty quick and nap while I drive.
Ahh, the life of a two-headed turtle.
