RV Travel Reader Pets Issue 25


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 25; Posted May 21, 2016

From Tim Slack, Karen Gunderman and Zöe, full-timers from Bloomington, Indiana


Meet Zöe! She chose us when we visited a cat-only shelter in Greenfield, Indiana.

Pets-Slack-4-30-16-encl.Three years old when she got us, Zöe’s four now and loves her full-time life in our 32-foot Tiffin Allegro Open Road. She travels in her own apartment under the sofa, but pops out to investigate her new surroundings as soon as we stop.

Pets-Slack-4-30-16-snakeFor her enjoyment (as well as safety) we use an outdoor enclosure occasionally, which prompted a visit from a curious rattlesnake recently when we were in Arizona. But all was well and the snake left after a while.

Mice beware! Zöe is both a deterrent as well as an effective hunter of any rodents foolish enough to enter, and we avoid smelly repellents and traps. She keeps her skills and her claws sharp on one of her toys.

Huge selection. Great prices. Click here.

From Silvia and Garry Steinhilber, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Pets-Steinhilber-5-7-16-drivingOur Buddy was found abandoned during winter on the outskirts of a small town. We adopted him six years ago and he’s enjoyed traveling with us in our motorhome ever since.

Pets-Steinhilber-5-7-16-faceBuddy sleeps while we’re driving on the highway, watches intently while we’re driving through towns to make sure we don’t take a wrong turn, and lays on the dash watching campground activities when we’re parked.

Other campers have told us they thought he was a toy dog because they never saw him move or heard him make a sound. He is smart, funny and loves all other animals (including cats ) and every person he’s ever met. He’s also thoroughly spoiled now!
