A Friend for the Road

As I prepare to leave the San Diego area for the deserts of California and Arizona, I decided to find a travel mate with the same passion for travel as I have.  It hasn't been easy.

After an extensive search and countless introductions, I have chosen Maci, a 1-1/2 year old reddish-gold spaniel mix to fill the seat next to mine.  She has a keen interest in everything, tempered with a wide streak of caution.  I found Maci residing at the San Diego County Animal Control facility after she was picked up as a stray.  She is smaller than what I was looking for, only weighing in at 20 lbs, but what she lacks in physical size she more than makes up for in heart.  She loves truck rides, cuddling, and treats, not necessarily in that order.

If you have room in your house and your heart, consider giving one of Maci's friends at the shelters a home.  You will get back far more than you put into your new relationship.

Please have your pet spayed or neutered and micro tagged.


  1. Very cool Greg. She looks like a very nice dog. Only 20 lbs? That's about the same size as the female fishing cat at the Zoo.

  2. Hi, Greg
    Beautiful dog. I'm glad you found a buddy for traveling. You've got some beautiful photos. I'll keep checking in.
