Doubledingo well worth the effort to go to a reunion or homecoming checked where you live I thought you must be Australian with that call sign you have
A little background. I moved to my current location in Dec. 1999. Wasn't doing so well here, and in Feb. 2002 I got a Queensland Heeler puppy. At about 5 months old she changed, she stopped looking like a Queensland and more like a Dingo. A year later her parents had another litter and I ended up with her sister, who also looked like a Dingo. So I got a new license plate for my Jeep DBLDNGO. Those that knew my dogs were my dingo dogs got it, but others didn't make the connection. Those girls are gone now, lost Sneakers in May 2013 to diabetic coma, and Sybil to natural causes in October 2018. She almost made it to 17.
We will have to save up both time off and money for a trek across the western US. If we go that far east, we'll have to go south too, because her family is in Texas. So it'd be a 5-7k mile trip easily. We put on 4,200 miles over Christmas 2018.
