One year of Milo

Read the original post and follow Van en van's overland adventures on their website: Van en van.


Dear San Francisco Animal Care and Control,

One year ago today, we adopted Milo. Nine days later, we headed south with him, driving in our Volkswagen camper down through Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, until today, here in Colombia.

Here is some of our first year with our new best friend.

Watching the world go by…

We could not be happier with the MVP of our journey. He guards our campsites, keeps us warm on chilly nights, and helps us with all of the dishes. He came to us fully potty-trained, gets along great with all of the dogs he meets, and allows all the children to manhandle him without getting ruffled. And he’s only gotten carsick once. Most importantly, when things get stressful on the road, he is always ready with his smile and the offer of a walk. He has adjusted to life so well on the road. We only hope he’ll be able to settle back into San Francisco when we make it back next year.

Thanks so much for the work that you do, and for making us a family!

love,

Stephanie, Juan and Milo

ps: yes, we updated his shots this week!
