Bless the power of Allah and modern medicine as Dillie the Westie recovered so quickly and in a few days he is back with us and good enough to attend our weekly tea with Mr. Gordon Lightfoot. He is a bit slow and has stitches on his head but our animal doctor, Doctor Murray, says he will soon be fit as a fiddle.
Our friend Joe…ooops, President Biden, has invited us to Camp David for a week where a navy veterinarian will give Dillie powerful restorative medicinal cocktails and we are going camping?
We fly into Dulles Airport in Washington and the Presidential helicopter takes us to Camp David in Maryland. But it is no campground but a luxury retreat. We are walked to a suite once occupied by Anwar Sadat, an assassinated President of Egypt!
We are told there will be a special dinner with an award given to Dillie and I for the fight against international terrorism and crime.
Bob and Fay gussy up and the Navy staff give Dillie the Westie and I a bath. We are smelling so good. A golf cart comes and picks us up and we go to the main lodge to have dinner with President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. Kamala sounds Egyptian! But no she is an American. President Bidden is in the room and his German Shepherds try and assert their power over me but my Rat Pack growl sends them cringing. NEVER MESS WITH AN EYGYTIAN STREET DOG!
Joe picks me up and gives me a hug and says to me where was I when Trump tried to overrun the Capitol Building! Then Vice President Kamala Harris asks me to jump up on her lap where I stay while the adults have some Schramsberg California bubbly wine.
We dogs have a dinner of Maryland organic chicken with mashed potatoes from the garden of the wife of President Biden called Jill. The humans have oysters, filet of sole and some dessert called Baked Alaska. There is coffee and Bob and Joe have a cigar with a glass of Pappy van Winkle American Bourbon.
Then we are all assembled for a presentation where I will receive a canine Presidential Medal of Honour for Bravery and International Furtherance. Dillie receives a medal of honour for bravery. We have great pictures of the presentation which sit on our fireplace mantle in our Toronto home.
We are all invited to visit Kamala tomorrow to visit her two stepchildren Cole and Emma. Such nice children and we watch “Reggie the Egyptian Rescue Dog” while Dillie and I sit on the laps of Cole and Emma and doze off.
We have a barbeque after and more rice and crumbled burgers and green beans for us. We are all taken home. The Canadian newspapers say Dillie the Westie and Reggie have done so much for Canadian American relations?
The rest of the week flies by and we go for long walks with Joe and Jill and eat like kings. We are all so good friends with President Biden and Vice-President Harris.
Joe says he will be visiting Prime Minister Trudeau in October in Ottawa and after that would like to stay with us for a couple of days. This is unprecedented with an American President staying with a Canadian citizen. We look forward to a visit and Bob says this will be Canadian Thanksgiving. He has plans that will make Joe and Jill Happy.
We fly back to Toronto and the media mobs us. Dillie the Westie and Reggie have suddenly become international diplomats.
Bob says to us when we return home that we all need to press the stop button and relax for two months. This sounds good to us dogs! I look forward to daily long walks and lots of cold water and chicken kibble. However we have received an invitation to a show hosted by Dr. Phil that Disney insists we attend. Bob says yes but after that we relax and wait for the visit by President Biden and his wife Jill.
