Goodbye Netherlands and Hello Italy

So, it’s happening, I am leaving my beloved Holland for pastures new. I must say, that I am looking forward to my new life in Milan. On the other hand, I can’t help reminiscing about my time in the Netherlands.

I have been so happy here and the humans have been so friendly to me. I have also had the opportunity to experience so many things which were new to me. For example, I have played in the snow; saw booti-ful flowers; frolicked on the beach; took my first train ride and had a million other pleasurable adventures.

On my daily walks I have met many amazing characters. Who could forget Floor, or my good friend Wally, or even my encounter with the Star Wars characters.

I have made such wonderful doggy and human friends here. Most memorable of all have been Henk, Nelie and Amy , who have taken such wonderful care of me when my humans haven’t been around. I ‘woof’ you.

And so it’s time to say:

Tot ziens Nederlands

Ciao Italia!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey (other) Homer,
Just another big adventure for you and the trip will be a lot more interesting than those plane rides; you'll get to see a lot more stuff. When we think of Italy we envision Maggie and Mitch chowing down on gelato, pizza, lasagna, ravioli, spaghetti and meatballs, etc. They'll be knew friends to meet, adventures to take and memories to make. Everything will be fine because you've got the missus there with you.

Sam said...

Wow! I can't wait to see what adventure you have in Italy! Maybe you can visit with Paco, Milo and Maya? I wish we could come and visit with all of you!

Have a good trip, Homer - you really are the most well-travelled pup I know!

Oh - and thank you SO much for taking the time to answer my questions! That is so kind of you when I know it is a busy time for you at the moment. It was really useful and I may have more questions for you closer to the time - so thank you again!

Oh Homer the traveller pup.
I remember I first met you while you about to leave China for Netherlands, same boxes, haha.
I wish you all the best in the next journey, you make it home everywhere you go, Homer!
By the way I'm back to blogging!
Oops, you have not noticed that I have been missing in action lately, have you?
I'm so excited to visit all of my friends again.
Love ya.
