June 6-8

June 14, 2019

We rolled 164 miles from Dickens to Graham with temperatures topping 100° F at times. Before reaching Graham, we stopped for the night in Aspermont and again in Throckmorton. I walked from the sizzling hot sidewalk into a pizza place in Throckmorton, to find that it was even hotter and more humid inside. Their air conditioner was broken. Walking to the pickup counter was like fighting through wet flames — I can’t imagine what kind of hell it must have been like in the kitchen, with its oven blazing. The woman doing the cooking had a grim, determined look on her face. The pizza was delicious! I hope the cook survived.

Here’s the link to our route and progress, but as always you can also find it in the menu above. Also, we have raised over $17,000 for K9s For Warriors! Thank you so much to those kind souls who have contributed… every dollar is helping save both a dog and a human. If you haven’t yet donated but would like to, click on “Save a warrior and a dog” in the menu, or just click here. Thank you!

Jax took a shine to Virginia, who hooked me up with some tasty energy bars at Allsup’s after my dreams were crushed across the street (because Aspermont Donuts is permanently closed). He also met Bryan, Chief Deputy of Stonewall County, who gave us his card and said to call if we needed help along the route.
The town of Graham has a beautiful Veterans Memorial.
“HERO. He will remain here to represent all war dogs past and present that have served to protect our freedom.” I love that they went to the expense to honor canine warriors right alongside the beautiful memorial to our fallen sons and daughters.
