We dodged a lot of terrible weather as we rode from Hereford to Dickens, Texas! It was windy, but could have been way worse. On a lonely stretch of road between Dimmitt and Littlefield, we met Case, a dairyman who moved to the U.S. from the Netherlands in 1986 and has a thriving business on the Llano with his son Jelmer. Lubbock, home of the Texas Tech Red Raiders, was a nice town, but we kept moving and only stayed one night. Good thing, because shortly after we left, the town was engulfed by a massive “Haboob,” a type of dust storm that I am very happy we did not get to experience. Thank you to all who have donated to K9s For Warriors — we have crossed the $15,000 mark! If you haven’t contributed yet and have some money to spare, please consider making a donation… save a warrior and a dog!

So glad we left when we did!

Had a great conversation with Jelmer and Case, which gave my legs a much-needed rest! Case said Cotton is king out here, but that he makes a nice living in the dairy business and loves the wide open spaces.
