We never made it to Edmonton. On Friday morning after a night of no sleep and the weather turning bad, we decided, for the sake of safety, to return home. the first 2 nights we had got a few hours rest but Thursday was dreadful. Heidi barked all night. When we checked into the motel, we told the staff that we had a hyper dog and needed to be somewhere were it would be quiet. What we got was near the front desk so people were coming in and talking, walking by the door etc. The staff talked until after midnight. Heidi, of course, reacted to every sound.
We got back home Sunday evening, disappointed but glad to be in our own beds. It is going to take a few days to get over the exhaustion.
Despite everything, we did have a good time together. We got to spend some time with Roger's aunt in Dryden, picked up some amathest in Nipigon, saw moose, ducklings and amazing scenery.
We are now trying to figure out how we are going to handle future holidays as it is obvious our little dog does not like motels.
