The spoils of conquest!

I have discovered the meaning of Master and Princess' recent actions and the disappearance of their large belongings. They have conquered a new fortress! It is a large fortress with two levels. At first I was unsure about the passage between the levels. They offered no traction and I was worried that I would injure myself during my decent. However, Master and Princess have once again shown their regard for me by laying down a material that allows me to walk easily. I was still very dubious at first but they were patient and showed me that there was no danger.

This new fortress also has a large surrounding area, however I have been kept restrained while in it. Unlike our last fortress the space between the front and the back of the fortress is not blocked off. I believe that Master and Princess are worried I may become over zealous in my guarding our new fortress. I hope this is remedied soon though because I am looking forward to playing on the new grounds.

It seems that Master and Princess still have some things to transfer because they return every night with more belongings. They also seem very tired in the evenings. I have been encouraging them to play and they have joined me when I ask, but much of the time they are resting or moving belongings around the fortress.

Well, for now, I must make my rounds and ensure that all is safe. I shall keep you updated on the progress of our new fortress.

Extended travels

There has been much traveling over the past several days. Several days ago Patriarch and Matron came to visit us with their young pup (and Rascal, though I did not encounter him). Baron (the name I have given the older male human who seems to be like Patriarch and Matron, an older member of an extended clan) also came. They and Master took many of the large belongings out of the fortress and placed them on 2 large rides. They then left me at the fortress to guard it. It was wise of them to leave me because there was much noise that night.  Humans in the surrounding fortresses seemed to be exploding objects near by.

The next day, Master, Princess and I got in the ride and went to return the visit to Baron and his mate, Baroness. We have visited there before and I greatly enjoy it. Where our fortress is only surrounded by a small space and many nearby fortresses their fortress has only one nearby fortress and a lot of room to run. It seemed to be some kind of important clan gathering. We were there many days longer then we normally stay and there were several humans that stayed with us as well many that came to visit.  Master and Princess came and went often but with no regular pattern as they normally do.

We have since left there and took Princess' ride and left it at an odd place with many other rides. When we arrived Princess got me out and talked with a few other humans. We then left and got into another ride that was driven by a different human. This ride did not have the space that Princess' ride does for me. I was made to ride in the very back without the luxury that Princess' ride affords. Fortunately it was a short trip. Master and Princess and I are now outside waiting. I am not sure what we are waiting for, but they seem to be enjoying some morning refreshments and have provided me water. There are also some small human pups here that have come over to meet me and are now playing nearby. I believe the other human shall return and escort us back to our ride soon.

We will be returning back to the fortress today as my humans have repacked their travel items, though I must admit I am still unsure of that situation. The bed for Master and Princess was taken as well as their large amorphous throne. I shall work on uncovering the meaning of this disappearance once we return.
