The first time I laid eyes on Sofie, I knew she was a pretty dog. The first time she nuzzled me, I sensed she was a sweet dog. Now, a few days into our roadtrip, I’ve learned that she was built to be a world traveler.
With all our necessities on board our VW Jetta, you can surmise that space is limited, to say the least. Sofie has thus been confined to a cramped corner atop her beloved denim LL Bean dog bed, folded in half and crammed above pillows, towels, camping supplies, and various other somewhat soft items.
Unlike the Princess and the Pea situation, however, Sofie doesn’t seem to mind her lumpy mattress or her inability to sit up without hitting the ceiling. In fact, she spends most of her time gazing out the window at FedEx trucks and cornfields while experimenting with new sleeping positions. Sofie’s trusted pal Squirrely always hangs out nearby to keep her company as she dreams about upcoming destinations.
