Every year I have to decide whether I want to drive the 8 hour (sometimes 9, 10, or 11 hour) drive to McAllen for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year, I chose to drive because of the dogs. It was important to me that Wilson experience a true Thanksgiving. Although I don’t know much about his history, it is pretty obvious to me that he has never had a family before.
And there is no way on earth I would ever leave Lizzie for a holiday, so driving was the only option.
