RV Travel Reader Pets Issue 24

The pets of 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) .

Issue 24; Posted May 7, 2016

From Shirley and Dave Mendonca, Modesto, California


My husband, Dave, and I would like to introduce you to Sparky, the third member of our family, who is 3 1/2 years old. He’s a Chorky (Chihuahua and Yorkie) that we rescued Pets-Mendonca-4-9-2016-toyafter his being on the streets. It took three months to get him back to health, but now he travels with us and loves every moment. He knows when we’re leaving for a trip when I take out the bed pillows. He begins to bark and dance on his back feet.

His favorite place while we’re out of the RV is to sit in the front window and talk with the people passing by.

He has his favorite toy, a stuffed bunny, that he must know where it is at all times.

He’s the joy of our lives.

Huge selection. Great prices. Click here.

From Dwyer and Vicki Stringer, Saint Hedwig, Texas

Pets-Stringer-4-30-16-DisneyThese are TinkerBelle (Belle) and Disney, our two English Springer Spaniels. They travel with us in our 2010 Fleetwood Bounder motorhome. These pictures were taken in Burkburnett, Texas, a few years ago when the bluebonnets were in bloom.

Pets-Stringer-4-30-16-BelleBelle and Disney know when we start loading up the motorhome that we are going on a trip, but they don’t know what day we are leaving until we put on their “traveling collars” (choke chains with their tags, rabies info, and tag containing their micro-chip information).

They are getting older (13 and 11), so we have a metal ramp so they can access the entrance stairs of the RV. We also fashioned a wooden ramp inside the RV for easy access to the dashboard (where they love to stay and look outside when we are parked).

Their (and our) favorite place to camp is Fort Wilderness Campground at Walt Disney World.
