Dogs on the Road ~ Kaylee of the Flightless Kiwis

Happy New Year! First of all, I apologize for my long absence. My time at Lake Atitlan was wonderful, but aside from daily freaking out over the never ending bombas being blown off, the day to day was mostly a bit of a non-event. Oh, life was good with lots of hiking the footpaths, swimming for coconuts, and going to San Juan and San Pedro with mom & dad for lunch or shopping, but our day to day routine was pretty set.

Now we’re back on the road an IN MEXICO. I know, believe me I know. We are supposed to be heading south right? Well, mom and dad seem to have some navigational issues, but I can’t complain because I love it here!

I am super excited to share this interview with you. Although I have never met Kaylee, I spent several days with her mom and dad, Ben & Emma, when they stayed with us a couple of years ago. At that point they were just heading out on their long roadtrip and didn’t have a dog. Poor souls. I was glad to see that by the time they got to Guatemala they rescued a sweet pup and now are a complete family. Hope you all enjoy her interview as much as I did.

Dogs on the Road ~ Jaeger of The Traveling Together Journal

Please offer up a short blurb about who you are? Age? Who else is in your family?

I’m Jaeger. I have a few nick names Brown Bear, Old Man, and Super Senior. I’m a pretty mellow guy these days. I generally do what I want, and pretend I can’t hear unless it’s food time or when my family is packing up the car because I don’t want to get left behind. Amie adopted me when I was 10 weeks old, and Matt joined our family when I was 9 years old. Today I’m 13 1/2 years old. Lately I have been called Super Senior a lot, because Amie was really worried that I was getting too tired to go on all the hikes they where hoping to do this winter in the Mountains of Mexico.  I was moving pretty slow, and I would not last long during walks on the beach, but that was because it was way too hot. Now we have been trying to summit big volcano peaks and I’m doing better then they are. This makes them really happy.
