Dogs on the Road Interview ~ Fiji of Fijipaw

I know, I know. Another extended absence with no word from me. I PROMISE I’m going to get mom to let me on the laptop more often to update you on life on the road. But first up I wanted to share this inspiring interview with Fiji, of Fijipaw.com and her mom Jasmine who are BIKING all over the place. I know, crazy right? First a few words from mom Jasmine and then we’ll jump right in with Fiji’s interview.

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

My name is Jasmine Reese. My travel companion and furry daughter is Fiji Reese. I am a long distance cycling, violin playing vagabond who embarked on a round the world bicycling journey one year ago. In 2013, Fiji and I also crossed the U.S. together, starting with only $50. Now, I we have traveled over 14,000 miles together through a combination of boats, hitchhiking and cycling around most of North America. My theme for my adventure is majorly about facing fears and pursuing dreams. My bucketlist is to learn and play violin all over the world, so I’ve been meeting with musicians and sharing music along the way, while also using street performance as one way to fund my travels. I am 28 years old, and my mom and little brother live in Indianapolis, IN.

I Kissed a Pig ~ and I Liked It!

Okay, in the interest of full disclosure, I didn’t really KISS the pig.  I know, I know, two different species acting in such a way? Well, you need to hear the whole story.

Most of our days here at the lake are really great. Mom and dad make sure I get a lot of exercise, cuddle time, multiple naps, and most days I even get to go and fetch my coconut in the lake. Really, what could be better?

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.

Lake Living

Well I have to say,  we are now in a place that is nearly doggie perfection. Mom and dad keep talking about how beautiful it is. Well, I don’t really know, or care, about that… but I can attest to the fact that the weather is perfect! Sunny and comfortable during the day, a little bit of rain most afternoons, and sleeping weather at night. What more could a dog ask for? Well, a lot more.. but first, let me tell you about the trip here!

A Visit to the Vet

By Aspen ~

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.

On the Road

By Porter ~

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.

Dogs on the Road ~ Malta of From Here Until There

Porter and I are super excited to be hitting the road ourselves in just ONE WEEK! But we will keep sharing interviews from our fellow, traveling dogs. Next up is Malta of From Here until There. Malta and her family are currently in Mexico and we hope to be meeting her in person shortly.

 

Hello!!
My name is Malta. I’m four years old and live with my mom and dad and brother, Fitz. My brother didn’t get to come on this trip because he is way less friendly than me, but he seems to be incredibly happy on the farm with my grandparents and his other sister. We Skype sometimes. Also, every time I see an open car door I feel an overwhelming compulsion to get inside. Even if mom and dad aren’t going anywhere. That’s how I let them know they had to take me along.

Changes Apaw

By Porter ~

Lately, I’m feeling a little bit nervous. It has been a year of upheaval for our little pack, and I have a feeling another BIG change is coming soon. Mom and dad just keep getting RID OF STUFF! Now, all the important stuff remains. Aspen and I still have our bowls and pads and rain jackets, much needed during these last few days. But it seems like we now live in a mostly empty house. It’s already a much smaller house than we left a few months ago and nearly all the rooms are empty…. as in totally empty!
