RV Travel Reader Pets, August 20, 2016


The pets of RVtravel.com readers

dog and photographer - leftDo you travel with a pet? We’d love to introduce your pet(s) to fellow readers. Here’s what we need: a photo or two of Fido or Boots (or you with your pet) and a 150-200 word description of your furry friend(s) — name, breed, age, how long you have traveled together, what makes them special? Go ahead and brag about them if you wish! Do you have any tips for other RVing pet lovers about traveling with pets that you’ve learned along the way? Don’t forget to give us your name(s) and hometown. Send to Diane(at)RVtravel.com .

Issue 29; Posted August 20, 2016

From Mary Masters and Robert Brewster, Mount Laurel, New Jersey

Pets-Masters-7-23-2016-dogs Pets-Masters-7-23-2016-catWe have two German shepherds and one cat who go camping with us. Heidi is a 13-year-old white German shepherd whom I adopted when she was a year old. Ali is my dark girl who was adopted at 5 months. They both are used to traveling since they used to compete in agility trials, and barn hunt. Simba, the orange cat, is 8 years old.

Pets-Masters-7-23-15-allThey all love to travel, and we put up a fence so they can be outside safely. We put chicken wire under the trailer to prevent them from escaping that way.

The girls love to take walks around the campground and check out all the new smells. Simba is so laid back he gets in the trailer and just acts like he’s home! He also likes to be in the yard seeing the sights. We camp in the pines and at the shore.

Pets-Masters-8-19-16Update from Mary, Aug. 18: Sadly we had to let Ali go to the rainbow bridge two weeks ago. She had cancer. At least she got to camp a couple times this year. We even made it to the dog beach! [Photo at left.] She had a good life and we miss her so much.

Editor: We’re so sorry, Mary and Robert.

Pets-Schneider-8-11-2016From Karen and Joe Schneider, Asheville, North Carolina

Rudy is a wonderful travel companion. He’s 2 years old, and is a Lab-Bassett mix. We rescued him from a local shelter. He had a badly deformed leg, which we were able to help somewhat with surgery. He provides us with so much joy!
Rudy travels with us on three or four week-long trips and a month-long cross-country trip each year. 
When not traveling, Rudy is VP of Customer Relations and goes to work in our flooring store every day. Customers and staff love him, and he works for treats.
