ROCKY DONATES his CLOTHES to charity!

ROCKY DONATES his CLOTHES to charity!

The journey of more than 2,000 miles across England and Scotland has come to its final destination: Bournemouth! (not pronounced as born mouth, rather born-muth)! Bournemouth was the first British town I’ve ever lived in. I remember having many memories of running on the beach, rolling around on the sand and staring in wonder at all the shirtless British people who acted like they’d never seen the sun before. But I’m getting a little distracted. We came here to cap…

ROCKY’S BIG BRITISH ROAD TRIP: A PEEK at WINDSOR CASTLE!

ROCKY’S BIG BRITISH ROAD TRIP: A PEEK at WINDSOR CASTLE!

I’m making my way to see the Queen! I’ve heard she’s at Windsor Castle! I’ve also heard she loves dogs so she will be delighted to see me! After all, no British road trip would be complete without a visit to this world famous castle, which is one of the Queen’s many homes! It’s also the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world…at least until they build the Rocky castle in the future, which will be based in England…

A Bull Terrier goes to Cambridge

A Bull Terrier goes to Cambridge

Have you ever come back to your home country and found yourself speaking another language after spending time in another country? Well, it happened to us after spending a week or so in the French Alps and in Paris. We came back to the UK speaking (and barking) in French. But it looks like once you enter the port city Dover, UK, it’s not unheard of to hear a bit of the French language. Another detail we noticed when we…

Rocky’s tour de Chamonix, Mont Blanc II

Rocky’s tour de Chamonix, Mont Blanc II

Bonjour again my friends! My first few days in Chamonix, Mont Blanc in the Haute-Savoie region of France were quite the awesome adventure because I went cycling throughout the town while surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the entire planet. My next few days in Chamonix were equally as awesome because I got to meet an Instagram legend bull terrier named Ringo. I also did some more exploring around the town and tried to make my way up…

Rocky’s tour du Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France I

Rocky’s tour du Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France I

Bonjour mes amies ! After travelling throughout much of England, I made my way back down to France for a cool (literally) adventure in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France during the late autumn season. Danny and our friend Sophie and I hopped in an early morning train from Brighton to Newhaven and stepped aboard the ferry from Newhaven port to the port of Dieppe. I stayed in a kennel with a pillow for the 3-hour journey. The ferries should really make a section…

Rocky visits the famous Isle of Wight Steam Railway

Rocky visits the famous Isle of Wight Steam Railway

The fun thing about trains is that I can go in them all over England! Most of them are quite nice inside and I’m even allowed up on some of the seats. In my journey to the dog-friendly Isle of Wight I found out a bit of history when it comes to taking dogs on trains. Turns out dogs have been allowed on these trains for quite a long time, even way before me or my human were born! I had…

A Bull Terrier travels to the dog friendly Isle of Wight

A Bull Terrier travels to the dog friendly Isle of Wight

After many years of longingly looking beyond the southern English coast at the tiny island known as Isle of Wight and wishing I could visit it, I finally set my paws on the island this year. Me, my human Danny and his friend Sophie hopped on a car and set off toward the city of Portsmouth and then sat on a ferry for about 30 minutes until we reached the Isle of Wight. I had heard many great things about…

Bike rides and horses in the New Forest: Hampshire

Bike rides and horses in the New Forest: Hampshire

The New Forest is huge! So huge that it takes up a big chunk of the southern region of England. It would take even me, one of the fastest dogs in the world, a long time to run through it all. Even with a bicycle it would still take forever to see it all! Me and my human’s first visit ever to the New Forest took us through the small village of Brockenhurst with a bicycle buggy and now this time…

Traveling between France and England with a dog: the Ferry

So you want to travel from England to France with your dog? Or from France to England you say? Or maybe even from England to the Netherlands. Well, I got you covered! I just wrapped up a trip from France and I’m now returning to the United Kingdom and on my way I’m visiting the port city of Dunkirk. But before I embark on the ferry ride, I’d like to share what it’s like to go on this ferry ride…

Rocky checks into the marvelous medieval island of Mont Saint-Michel

Lads and lasses we are on the tail-end of our first journey across the lovely and dog-friendly country known as France. We began the journey with a bit of exploring in Calais then off and did some sightseeing at the castles in Alsace and then up to the Normandie region for the D-Day experience. We are now going to finish this trip in style with an adventure on the tide island of the legendary Mont Saint-Michel. Mont Saint-Michel is called…
