Day 3 - Key LargoMom, dad and I went on a sunrise walkie. We walked all the way across the island to see the ocean! During the morning, I napped while mom and dad went swimming. Dad overcame his fear of water and learned that he is part fish! He learned to use a mask and saw a bunch of fishies and a starfish!

Then during lunch at the Blue Cow Cafe, I made a new friend named Buoy, and Buoy's dad gave me a treat! Then I made friends with Bentley who works in the boutique nearby.

For dinner, we all went to the Conch House, and the very nice lady there gave me BACON! After dinner, we stopped by Divers Direct and a guy in the store said I could come inside too. I'd never been in a dive shop before.
That night I had very active dreams -- I dreamed I was hunting bacon on the plains of Africa.
Day 4 - Key LargoWe started the day with another sunrise walk across the island to the ocean.
After lunch at the Blue Cow Cafe, we went into the dog-friendly UPS Store because in the window they had a sign that piqued our curiosity -- it said "we send coconut postcards". The very nice lady in the UPS Store gave me treats and explained that a "coconut postcard" is when you put an address on a coconut and ship it to someone. This is why I love the Keys! Every place is dog friendly and everywhere I go, they give me treats! And they do crazy things like ship coconuts to people instead of a postcard! We wanted to get a coconut postcard for Grandma Joyce, but the only ones they had said "Happy Birthday" and it won't be her birthday again until next July. But I got treats, and that's all that mattered.

|Excellent service at the UPS Store|
I was very proud of Daddy-Dog because he was learning basic swimming and was rapidly gaining confidence in the water. Mommy-Dog tried SUP (stand-up paddleboarding) for the first time ever and paddled a couple miles down the shore and back. She "totally rocked it" according to the 18-year old SUP dude. Momma was quite proud of herself at receiving such high praise. And her newly-mended-with-a-titanium-plate-and-8-screws arm didn't bother her AT ALL, which is really amazing, considering she broke it into a bunch of pieces only a little over two months ago.
Day 5 - Key LargoWe had an early morning walkie, then went to the Blue Cow Cafe for breakfast, where we saw my new friend Bentley. Everyone who walked by admired me and petted me.
Dad continued to amaze us by trying stand-up paddle-boarding. He didn't fall off and was actually able to keep up with Momma.
During lunch at the Blue Cow Cafe, we saw my new friend Buoy. The UPS Store lady brought me treats so I did some tricks for her. Then Buoy had to show us HIS tricks. Then we met Uncle Randy & Aunt Cara at Snook's for drinks. It was great to see them!
|The Blue Cow Cafe is VERY dog-friendly (and people-friendly!)|

knows dogs are welcome
|Buoy has the best eyebrows EVER|
We went back to Snook's later for the MarrVelous Pet Rescue Yappy Hour. You wouldn't believe the number of dogs there! You can see some photos at Yappy Hour at Snooks. I REALLY missed seeing my buddy Southernmost Moose though. Hopefully we will see him next year -- if not before.
