Dog Blog: Did They Leave Me?

Dog Blog: Did They Leave Me?

Dear Diary, I had a great couple weeks with Mom and Dad! We went to so many parks that I’ve taken poos in. I haven’t been able to always get out of the car because the bears are scared of me, but I’ve gotten lots of air-sniffing-out-the-window time! Mom also bought a chuck-it, and it’s my job to go get the ball. I’m really good at it and I take my job super seriously. We visited a friend named Luke…

Dog Blog: On The Road Again!

Dog Blog: On The Road Again!

Dear Diary, After a long winter break, we’re finally back in the road again.  It was a little hard to leave Xena… mostly because she wanted to try the long distance thing. But I was like “girl, I gots things to do, and I need to get my scent everywhere, if ya know what I mean.”  Mom and Dad sold the van/my big kennel on wheels! They got a nice red truck (why are they obsessed with red??) though where…

How to Actually Afford Van Life

How to Actually Afford Van Life

“How can you afford this?” is one of the questions we’ve gotten most, after “ew, how do you take showers?” and “how do you not kill each other?” (see this blog for answers on that one!).  When we started thinking about this adventure, I turned to the never ending wisdom of the internet and social media van life accounts. I quickly became frustrated (and quite frankly, continue to be) on how many people, van lifers and others, claim to fund…

Dog Blog: My New Girlfriend

Dog Blog: My New Girlfriend

Dear Diary, OMG I have so much to tell you. It’s been so long since I’ve written but soooo much has been going on and I’ve been busy.  Mom and Dad decided to move to Colorado because the lady I fell in love with is here. Her name is Xena and she lives with these humans named the Eliases. They’re wonderful. They make food and have so many toys and Xena is here! She’s the most beautiful chocolate dog who…

Eco Friendly Christmas

Eco Friendly Christmas

It’s hard not to feel completely overwhelmed by the current environmental reports. It seems like there is no way that we can make a difference, especially with our dumpster fire extremely divided government that seems hell bent on doing nothing but fighting with each other.  via GIPHY However, I am trying my darnedest to remain optimistic and believe that we, the people, can save our mother earth. The holiday season is one of our worst times though and our waste increases…

Dog Blog: I Feel Blue

Dog Blog: I Feel Blue

Dear Diary, It’s been awhile, I know, but I just haven’t felt like writing. To be honest, I’ve felt a little down. We’ve been constantly moving around, but I haven’t felt like I have my own home or space right now.  That’s not to say that I haven’t been having some fun. I have played with some pups (was I that annoying and energetic when I was young??), Lincoln and Rush. I’ve also gotten some butt sniffs and growled at…

True Life: Van Relationships Are Hard

True Life: Van Relationships Are Hard

Meet Mike. He’s my husband of one year, but we’ve been together for about six years. We’ve obviously had our ups and downs, like everyone does, but for the most part… it’s been pretty easy for us as a couple. There has only been one huge screaming fight, about six months in of us dating. But overall, when we disagree or frustrate each other, we tend to make up pretty quickly and easily.  Now, when we decided to do this…

Friend-venture Week

Friend-venture Week

I have quite a few friends in metropolitan cities that I wanted to visit while we are traveling through the East. However, Mike is not quite a fan of big crowds so as you can imagine he was not in love with the idea of going to some of the largest cities the East Coast has to offer. Soooo…. This week was a solo adventure for me! The original plan was to have Mike hike some of the Appalachian Trail…

Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon National Park

After Zion National Park, Mike and I headed to the Grand Canyon! We were meeting our friends there the next day, so we spent the evening at the North Rim to see the canyon from the less viewed side. It was wonderful to relax on the beautiful lodge deck with a delicious Grand Canyon beer.  We also met an amazing Park Ranger that majored in geology that typically works on the South Rim side, but was visiting this side with…

Dog Blog: I’m exhausted

Dog Blog: I’m exhausted

Dear Diary, I am exhausted! The last couple weeks I went HARD AF. Reminded me of when I was a young pup, raging on spring break.  Lots of going to the bathroom in places I shouldn’t, lapping up human alcohol, starting fights, humping, and running around ALL DAY! So, we’re back in this big mansion.  As king of this castle, I went in and found my lair immediately and rested my weary bones for the last 48 hours. As well…
