After several moments at the Washington Monument, The Pups zigged and zagged and stumbled across The Lincoln Memorial....

And took time to honor the man who held this country together in her darkest hour....

and then the Pups swam across the Potomac and found themselves in Arlington National Cemetery....

where they listened to the mournful sound of Taps paying homage to the many souls buried in those hallowed grounds....

finally, after a few more detours, the Pups arrived and found the Desert Dawg Express ready and waiting to go....

thus ending their Washington D.C. adventure.

hey Desert Pups,

I feel sad your adventure is over but I am very happy Toby was extracted from jail and you all made it back to AZ safely. Sad and happy! Your adventure was just so exciting it is sad to see it end.

Poor Norman must be so pooped from all that digging! Hope his paws are ok! My human sniffled at the Arlington Cemetary photo - she said it is very sad. Nice of you pups to pay your respects.

You dawgs lead quite the life! Can't wait to see what is next! I mean, who knew Gucci's birthday would turn into such a wild adventure!

Whew!! What a long week. I am finally glad to be going home and especially happy that the plane is not flying upside down. (my kibble will stay down)
Hey, Pilot Toby, please tell whoever that is sitting behind me to stop crying. It's getting on my chi-wa nerves. Geez...planes oughta have a separate section for cry babies. Fly safe.
