I sit here writing this with happy tears, because it is such a joy to watch you and your amazing wonder doggie. You’re showing parts of the world we dream of visiting, that life on 3 legs can be GREAT even for ginormous doggies like Eurydice. What a way to fly the Tripawds flag and spread the word to people who never would have imagined that a dog could be so happy. Thank you soooo much for sharing here!! We all want more more more pics and videos when you get a chance OK?

Ohhhh it is SO beautiful there! I want to tag along!

Love the photos and especially how you carry her bed wherever you go!

The whole place really looks like a dream. We’ve only been to Spain once and had a ball. I can’t even imagine how fun it would be to travel there with Wyatt Ray !

Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain.

Love, love, love!!! That’s so funny with her looking up at the sign, like ‘Hmm, now here shall we go next?’ She’ll be driving the car for you soon. Seriously, I love these pics, love seeing Eurydice loving life in such a range of beautiful environments. That one in the cloisters is fabulous too. I love that you are sharing these experiences with each other. So precious, such a great thing to do.

Lots of love to you both!

Hey there❤️

I went through the link of your travels, wow, you sure know how to have fun 👏🏽👍🏼

I wish I could have a doghouse like yours, it is a dream to be able to be that free 🚐💨💨💨💨 but you definitely need the right cool family for that 😎 In my case me and my dogs are the only ones that enjoy the road noboby else would do it at all 😐 

Europe is great I love the fact we can move countries and be exposed to other cultures and languages within such a small area compared to the States. 

I was lucky enough to have a chance to visit some parts of your beautiful country a few times.

Did a Blues trip 10 years ago, starting in stunning New Orleans, up through Cajun country for Zideco and Cajun music, (Breaux Bridge, Baton Rouge, Lafayette) then did a portion of the Croocked Road (Appalachian trail) and on the way went to the Carter Family Fold  and watched the spectacular music played in their barn, Memphis, Tennesse was, of course, a must for Blues, Nashville for Country (recorded Heartbreak Hotel at the Ryman Auditorium and still am very proud of myself even if Elvis would think otherwise😳😐) Ground Zero Club in Clarksdale, Mississippi was something else, Blues straight from the heart 💖 I can’t remember all the places anymore but we went through 6/7 States and flew out from Charlotte, North Carolina if my memory is not failing, a trip which is engraved in my heart ❤️

Went to New York twice and travelled a bit around there and also did Miami and Key West which was adorable 💙

I LOVE your country and wish I could see more of it but I reckon I will definitely need a big van to do it properly 🚚💨💨💨💨 and have to be between dogs as it is impossible to take them with me (I refuse to put them in the luggage area in the plane)

I definitely think nothing compares to traveling, it opens our hearts and souls to the essence of life like nothing else can and meeting so many interesting, lovely people on the way is just precious! 

Sorry about the looooong post, your link just triggered all these happy memories ☺️☺️☺️

Sending you all my love and cuddles to Wyatt 😘😘😘🐶🐾🐾🐾❤️

Hi Alison and Jasper ❤️🐶🐾

I SO wish you could bring Jasper to Europe so we could show her some seriously good time (and to you too!) 🎉🍧🍸🍾⛱💃🏽

I bet she would be delighted to be pampered right, left and centre and with that cute little face of hers would get non stop cuddles and attention every day of the week 👑 like the princess she is 👑

Sending you lots of love and tummy rubs to your sweetie 😘😘🐾❤️

Ooooh those music trips you’ve taken sound so fun! We’ve been to a few of those places, including the Crooked Road. Did you go to the Floyd Country Store? Ohhh so much fun! If you ever come back to the states you have to let us know when, we would love to meet you. Sounds like we have a lot of musical tastes in common.

I also refuse to put Wyatt in the cargo hold, so any overseas travels are out for us. He’s also not boarding material, so no chance of us going on our own. Plus what fun would that be right?!

I hope that in our lifetimes someone will create an airline company that allows pets of ALL sizes in the cabin. Until then, you’ll find us on this side of the pond.
