After Moxie passed, it was nearly impossible to imagine sharing this adventure with another dog or copilot. But it was also impossible to imagine not sharing this adventure with another dog.

After all, we’re dog-loving people who have a dog-products business and set ourselves a mission to ride around the world with a dog.

So, after months of grieving, we had both joy and sadness in our hearts when we welcomed Whimsy into our pack. She has a hunger for life – actually a hunger for everything – which means she bites down into everything we do – and everything around.

Soon we discovered the scene of the crime and we took the appropriate measures.

That night she vomited cement on the cream-colored living room rug and she continued to poop cement for the next three days.
