Our Pets

My family has traveled with Chihuahuas for nearly as long as I can remember. I currently travel with two who think that they own my coach as can be seen below:

Precious Princess is on the left, and is nearly two years old in this picture; Little Bear is on the right and is her half-brother who is 9-months old in this photo. These two are the most gregarious yet quiet Chihuahuahs that have accompanied me on my travels.

Jacques the Douge de Bordeaux goes wherever we go. (see picture) We used to take my mother's poodle, Dju-Dju, but he lives with my brother-in-law now.

Thumbs up Mr.Ernest P. Turbo

Mr. Ernest P. Turbo ALWAYS goes with. He's our 80# Yellow lab and is now getting on in years. Last week I had put the trailer hitch on the truck, prior to pulling the trailer out of the shelter for some washing and waxing. I went into the house for some cleaning items before I connected the trailer and I happened to look out of the house window. Mr. Turbo had taken up a position right in front of the trailer tongue. It would be a no go without him. FWIW we are seriously considering travling to Maine, Mass,etc this summer and I was suprised to see, that some campgrounds up there apparently do not allow pets. Anyone know what's,what's?

Miss Lily and I are looking forward to a "girl's weekend out" next month, only five girls and their boys. She really bonded with "Maxwell" in our 70 nights out last summer!

WE have two Kerry Blues named Mulligan & Callahan. They go everywhere
with us and are very well trained thanks to John. Terriers have a mind of
their own and it is usually on their terms but these guys are great. They
are brothers and five years old. The nice thing about them is that they
don't shed or smell (well sometimes smell) Ha! We do use a lot of towels
in the Bambi, on the floor and we cover the seats. It sure gets you off
your duff to walk them morning, noon and night. Happy Trails John & Betty

This is Penny(shep mix) and Charlie (terrier mix). Both were adopted from one of the local shelters. Charlie is about 2 1/2 and Penny is about 14 1/2.

Penny has gone with us on nearly every trip in both the Bambi and the Safari.

This is Charlie's first camping trip next weekend. He's been getting adjusted to the Safari these past few months.

Penny although she's slightly territorial when other dogs or animals go by, she's pretty laid back. Looks at Charlie and thinks he's nuts. Charlie's shelter name was "Stud", which we found out why when we got him home. He dislike males. Growls, barks, etc. He tolorates me in his house. Put a female in front of him and not a wimper or peep. Follows Brandi everywhere, until she goes, then for some reason I'm fairly useful to hang with. Every neighbor in the neigborhood same thing. Husband, bark growl, etc, wife, happy as a clam.

....and yes, that's Penny in Grandma's SOB, looking at a chipmunk that is taunting her at a State Forest campground in Picture Rock National Lakeshore in the U.P.

Airstream Animals

Meet Maggie the Doberman-Pit-Weiler and Dora the Poodle Something; both dogs of dubious origins, but wonderful Airstream canines none the less.

We take our cats, Delmar (or "D" as we call him) and Laurel, if we're going to be gone longer than 4-5 days. Took them with us to Las Vegas last year, and they did great! We lowered the back seat in the truck, put up some plastic mesh between the front and rear seats, and they had the whole back area to wander around it.

We travel w/our 2 Eskies Yogi & Booboo. Yogi's the larger of the 2; she "likes the picnic basket too much. We also have our rescued Samoyed, Snow, who thinks an open truck door means it is time to go camping.
Sometimes we take our 2 Maine Coon cats, Ralph & Alice on longer trips, but for weekends they prefer to stay home

Spoiled Boston Terrier

We travel with our Boston Terrier (so far every trip we've taken). She travels well in our TV. But when we hit the CG, all eyes are out for squirrels! Of course, with all this energetic hunting experience, once evening falls, she's all tuckered out in our bed taking up the choice spot thinking she's a human! She rules the roost!
