Dog is my co-pilot
That's right! And her name is Stumpy. We've been traveling together since March of 2007. She's pretty easy to get along with. As long as our schedule includes food and some walks, she's amenable.
Stumpy is a seasoned traveler. Besides many smaller trips she has journeyed from the East coast to the West Coast and back five times.
Her duties are extensive and her job description is very detailed. Among other duties, she's also my service dog.
(you can help feed shelter dogs by making a postcard, such as this. More details can be found at the Pet Postcard Project
And in times of trouble and stress (or any time at all) she is happy to provide comedic relief to a situation.
Stumpy also has her own blog: Stumpy's Daily Dose 'o" Dirtville, that documents her daily doggie doings, while we're domiciled in dirtville.
