Costa Rica to Panama to Serbia to Hungary

It’s cramped inside the car. I keep standing up, turning around, panting, and settling heavily only to realize my legs are falling asleep again. Kayla, Aaron (Andrew’s younger brother), and I are squeezed into the back seat of a taxi. Andrew’s head lolls nauseatingly up front as he attempts to sleep. The road is impossibly bumpy. We left our AirBnb …

Water, Fire, Salt, Foam, and Joy – Tamarindo, Costa Rica

After the odyssey of driving through five countries in ten days, it was a relief to arrive in the beachside town of Tamarindo. Bad news – the internet deleted our blog post that recounted the tale of our 10-day drive from Mexico to Costa Rica. But trust me, it was epic. The humans unpacked while I sniffed around the yard …

Jet Lag and Shopping: Day 1 of Delhi

Kayla here – Barley is going to take some time off while I write about my trip to India. To be honest, he’s probably a bit sick of writing about our adventures while we leave him at home. We’ll need to make sure our next few weeks are more dog-friendly! I headed to Delhi for about a week to celebrate …

A Dog’s Eye View of Wisconsin

Holy biscuits of bacon! I love Wisconsin! I’ve been swimming. Every. Single. Day. Kayla’s dad lives on 40 acres of property and I can run around with sticks and basketballs all day. He’s got little baby chickens that I can herd (oh-so-gently) and a cat that really seems to want to sleep instead of play. Memphis was so gosh-darn hot, …

A Dog’s Eye View of Las Vegas

We all slept on the pull-out couch on our last night in Salt Lake City. The next morning, we got up early and they packed the car again. We drove for a long time, then stopped for a hike. I ran all over the hills and stained my paws dark red with Utah dirt. It was awesome! Andrew and Kayla …

This Is Not A Drill – Concussions, Ripped Nails, and Lost Houses

Cleaning & Packing & Concussions, Oh My! They packed and cleaned nonstop, all day. Kayla kept making me move while she swept, and Andrew shoed me away from sleeping on his warm laundry. The whole apartment reeked of chemicals. I stayed as close to them  as I could as the apartment emptied. It echoed each time they closed the door behind …
