Our lil' travelling clan consists of three cats, two dogs, a goat, and a rabbit.
Here's Rosie and Dan having a heart to heart in the desert near Moab, Utah. She's 2.5 years old.
Juno (4.5 years old) is the little dummy on the left. She couldn't find her way out of a breadbox. When I adopted her and walked her around my apartment building, my neighbor stopped me and asked if I had gotten that dog from the pound. I sad yes, and he said him and his buddy had just dropped it off here for eating his buddy's chickens. I can confirm that she is still a chicken murderer.
Piper, on the right, (5.5 years old) was thrown over a tall fence into my cousin's yard as a puppy. She's an excellent dog, and loves to get hugs.
On the left here is Frankenstein. She was a stray in my yard and I decided to keep her and bring her with us the day before our 4-month boondocking pop-up camper trip last fall. She's so dumb that she's forgotten how to get back out of the litterbox before. Dan's two cats are on the other side. The black one is Bartleby Herman Meowville and the tabby is Oscar Wildecat.
We lived in this antique 1968 Cox Campsquire popup for four months and went 25,000 miles around the country in the time. WITH all the animals. And no electricity but one deep cycle battery that we charged about once a month. Using 10 gallons of water a week. It's safe to say that the bus will be a big step up in comfort!
Oscar is a really smart cat and he uses his mind power to escape things. He managed to escape the big dog crate and the camper it was in, and since then we were unable to contain him in the camper at all without binding all edges and latches of the cage shut, and we couldn't just keep him in a cage all the time with the canvas camper. So we got a bus! Bartleby has a "darting" habit which is extraordinarily frustrating at 5am in the middle of a deserted reservoir with coyotes howling all around after just arriving from a 12-hour miserable car ride. Now we have a door and wall behind the driver's seat to form an "animal airlock" before the bus door. It works amazingly well!
I don't have any pics of George, the rabbit, accessible. He'll be joining us in our travels when we head out this month. He's a white lop with grey ears, nose, and toes.
