Celebrating a BIG Anniversary

By Aspen ~

Last weekend, Porter and I were SO lucky because we got to spend an extra long weekend with mom & dad at camp. The destination, Timothy Lake, one of our favorites. The reason, mom & dad were celebrating something they call a wedding anniversary. Now, I have no idea what a wedding is, and less what an anniversary means, but apparently they have  now been married for 25 years. It seemed like a big deal, even in human years, but can you imagine….. thats like 175 dog years, no wonder they say they’re old!

The Black dogs hit the Road!

By Aspen ~

We were thrilled to FINALLY be back on the road for more camping adventures! Mom and dad sent us to doggie camp at Critter Nanny recently while they ran off to some place called Mexico. Apparently they’ve been there before and really love it. It sounds like a place Porter and I would like and mom & dad promise that the next time they go there we get to go with them! I can’t wait.

Back to the Beach!

By Porter~

I am not sure what is wrong with the humans in my life, but it has been MORE THAN A MONTH since mom and dad took us to the beach, or even camping anywhere! They say they’re busy, they’re fixing up the house, etc etc. I say whatever! They have taught us how to be traveling dogs and we want to travel.

Dogs on the Road Interview with Frankie of Follow the Hound

Next up in our Dogs on the Road interview series is Frankie of Follow the Hound. Frankie is our first interview with a European hound so enjoy his perspective on traveling the world.

Hi Frankie! Tell us a little about yourself.

Tell us a little bit about where you have traveled with your family. Have you traveled internationally?

Hi, I’m Frankie, I travel the world with my wonderful owners Ross and Dinia in our old VW Syncro. I’m a Posavac Hound who had a tough life before they found me, but its all great now, and Ross says I will hopefully be the first dog to visit all 7 continents!

It started, a few years ago, I grew up in an area where there are hundreds of dogs roaming the streets, looking for food and trying to stay out of trouble. Unfortunately, one day I was sniffing around the forest and I got my paw stuck in an animal trap. I don’t know how long I was there for, but by the depth of the cuts and how skinny I was, Ross thinks it was for nearly a week!

Luckily, just before it was too late, Ross and Dinia found me while they were camping in their old Land Rover and they decided to share food with me and show me some TLC. They stayed with me for 2 days feeding me and playing with me, but when they thought I was getting better, they had to move on. They started to drive away and I got very upset as these were the nicest people I had ever met. As they pulled away, I started running and luckily, after 2 miles, Ross spotted me in his wing mirror and decided that he was going to keep me!

3 years on now and although I like to escape and run around chasing deer (I am a hound after all) I still live and travel with Ross and Dee. They have even decided to name their website after me. Id love if you would take a look at our adventures at: http://www.followthehound.com

Hi Aspen & Porter!

My name is Penny Rose or “Penster” as my humans Corey and Emily sometimes call me. I think I am 1 or 2 years old but it’s just a number. I think I’m still a puppy! I am a true lover of the outdoors. Going on bike rides, running on the beach, and catching frisbees is what I live for.

Happy Birthday Aspen!

By Porter ~

Monday was Aspens second year as a Delameter! I am so happy mom and dad brought her home to play with me because I was SO lonely and unhappy when I was home by myself all day. We like to go camping for our birthdays but this year mom and dad raced right home from work to watch some football game. It was nice to have us all there, together, but I would have rather been camping.
