The moving adventures of simple dog & helper dog
By Julia Lane, November 2010, Updated June 2021

I have a million friends who love dogs and another million who know I love dogs. This is why my email and Facebook inboxes are constantly jammed with multi-forwarded messages featuring sentimental dog stories, links to THE funniest dog video ever, and multiple memory-sucking photos of costumed canines posed or Photoshopped next to everything from babies to ostrichs complete with silly captions. So my thumb was practically twitching over the delete button when friend after friend kept forwarding and sharing the same blog post, "Dogs Don't Understand Basic Concepts Like Moving." Finally, I gave in and read what is THE funniest dog-related blog post ever thanks to its belly-laugh inducing illustrations. The author-artist and her boyfriend attempt to move from Oregon to Montana without completely stressing out their two dogs. They are not entirely successful. Enjoy.
