Inbox: New Fan Mail!

Before leaving Sunny California I checked my email and came across this interesting proposition from a fan named Reilly. How nice! As in, Ted Lasso nice.

I haven’t met Reilly, but his profile pic screams confidence and he clearly takes good care of his fur. I also respect that he warned me of dangers ahead, yet tempted me with food and companionship. Bravo, Reilly. Well done.

It’s such a refreshing change from the mountain of marriage proposals, time-share pitches, and Nigerian princes asking for banking help. It’s a dog-eat-dog world, my dudes: Be careful out there.

Reilly, I hope we hang out at a dog park one day and wag tails together.! You seem cool and I’m flattered that you’re planning a parade when I cross the border!

“Finnegan, Be careful, you’re going north and I have to say, its getting cooler. Also, there are raccoons in Oregon. Lots of ‘em. Oh, wow. When I think of it, BEARS too. If you want to quit and come join me on my little pillow here in Ontario, I’ll make room. We have greenies. Not sure if they are vegan. I am enjoying reading about your journey though. What an adventure. Is Ian an OK traveller or does he make you check out how many people are in every spot you go, and make sure you know where the bathrooms and exits are? Hope he’s not being too demanding. Its worth it though right? I know when you make that entrance to Canada there will be cheers and maybe a parade.”

Safe travels, Reilly
‘Sup, Reilly!

I enjoy hearing from my fans! Email me along with your profile pic! I usually swipe right, so you never know!

Mendocino, CA!

A few hours north of the People’s Republic of San Francisco, I made a quick stop to Mendocino because I totally forgot this is where I buried my Emmy for my award-winning cameos on the hit TV show “Alf” back in the 80’s!

So, of course I had to check if it was still around:

Back then, I was a stand-in for Alf in several episodes! The studio audience couldn’t tell the difference, and the producers loved me!

Sniff, we were so young back then!

Sadly, I think my Emmy is lost at sea – I can’t find it anywhere.

If you see a shiny Emmy floating around, let me know. It would be nice to get it back.

Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA!

My dudes, I’ve been so inspired by the glitzy showbiz vibe all across this State, I’m seriously considering becoming a social media influencer! Here’s my debut look that will hopefully bring in Kardashian-level fame and fortune!

But first, I’m wondering if I need to make an important life decision: Let me know what you think:

Truth be told, I could go either way. It can be a bit annoying after I go for a swim.

Maybe I run for Mayor of this scenic town and build name recognition instead. After all, it worked for Clint Eastwood. Lots to think about. I’ll sleep on it.

Santa Barbara, CA!

Finally hit the West Coast and … TRIFECTA ACHIEVED! I dipped my paws from coast-to-coast!

Please take a moment to celebrate:

Let’s also take a moment to celebrate these stunning California sunsets, and how this place inspires so much American pop culture: Neil Young sang about it; The Beach Boys surfed about it; Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg took it to another level.

This sunset was in Carmel-by-the-Sea

Everyone is so nice and trusting here. In fact, a skipper wearing a bright blue shirt asked me to guard his spare nautical wheel until he returns from a 3 hour tour with some friends. He even introduced me to them: A clumsy guy in a red shirt, a millionaire, his wife, a movie star, a professor and a pleasant young woman who looks like she lives on a farm.

UPDATE: It’s been well over 3 hours and the tour still hasn’t returned. I’m not sure if I should be worried, but my sense is the crew is quite resourceful and will be ok.

So, I’m going for another swim.
