This week we had to say goodbye to my brother, Porter, when he went to doggie heaven. I knew he hadn’t been feeling well and those last couple of days I could tell he was really sick. Mom already wrote about that bad, bad day. What I want is to remember all the good times we had. I am feeling very sad and out of sorts myself so I decided to just do a pictorial of all of the fun times we had together.

Yesterday I spent the day cuddling Porter. The wind is blowing so hard it’s no fun at the beach, well that is at least what mom says, and it even rained!!! Now, when I say it rained I mean actual rain. Last time it “rained” on us in Baja it was something like seven raindrops. Yesterday and this morning it actually RAINED.. almost like at home but just for a lot shorter time. But nonetheless, mom and dad declared it a lazy day in the camper with them working on their computer stuff that they seem to spend so much time on and Porter and I napping at their feet.
While we are spending lazy days running the beaches of Baja, we are still in touch with all of our fellow doggie travelers. Next up in our Dogs on the Road series is Maya of A Gypsy Tail.
Please offer up a short blurb about who you are? Age? Who else is in your family?
HI! My name is Maya. I am an almost 7 year old Border Collie Mix from San Diego, California. Right now it is just my mom and I travelling. I don’t have any brothers or sisters but we make lots of friends on the road.

We’ve now been on the road with mom and dad for two months and it is FANTASTIC. Our road life is endless togetherness, lots of time outdoors and, most importantly for me, many hours a day spent running the beach and swimming in the sea.
Next up in our Dogs on the Road interview series; Helen who is traveling with her mom and dad through Latin America, just like we are! They were in Baja at the same time but we didn’t get to meet her as they have already gone to the mainland. Hopefully our paths will cross on the other side!
Hello everyone, thanks for this great opportunity to tell all my fellow dogs about my adventure. I am a Beagle, my parents say I am still a puppy because I am 20 months old, but I am not a puppy! I am a teenager, oh well they do say I act like it sometimes because they say I am stubborn and have an attitude, I really don´t know what they are talking about, I am an angel! My dad and my mom decided to take a year to travel from Houston, TX all the way to Ushuaia, Argentina. I don´t know how far that is, but they have taken me on some small trips and they say I have done well on the road, so they decided to take me. Plus why would they leave me behind!?

Ever since mom and dad first took me to the beach, I have suspected I was a beach dog. Oh, I am a lab, which means I love doing pretty much ANYTHING, but the beach is my favorite. I tend to get so excited I hop around and mom calls me her bouncy puppy. I must admit I feel young and free when running the beach!

This week was Aspen’s 3rd birthday as a Delameter, and I have to say, I can’t imagine a happier dog.

Today marks two weeks since mom & dad packed us up in the truck/camper and headed out on the road and I couldn’t be happier. Well, I could be if that CAT at the campsite next door didn’t keep giving me the eye and, perhaps, if I liked the looks of one particular german shepherd loitering around more… but other than that Aspen and I are in heaven.
