Who is this Roger Wellington
Roger Wellington a.k.a. The Doob is an ultra-bossy Yorkshire Terrier hailing from San Francisco, California. Although many veterinarians have made various hypotheses, his exact age is unknown but could range from 12 to 14 years old. After being crated for OVER 16-18 hours on average daily with his sweet pit bull lady friend Cleo and surrendered TWICE as if he were some toy (first time cruelly due to the arrival of a newborn and second time due to lack of transitioning time), he was finally rescued in 2015 by his globe-trotting millennial humans who gave him his happily ever after.
Shortly after his humans resigned from the conventional office to become world nomads the following year, Roger W. joined them on their international escapades and instantaneously became the fabulous star of the blog. From a miserable life in a crate, he has now transformed into an international foodie, 7 lb. pack leader, dog (and cat :)) advocate, and arguably, the most masculine travel blogger.
To prepare for his first international flight, Roger W. went on numerous road trips and domestic flights. After immense research on international dog travel, his humans flew him on a one-way 10+ hour flight to Paris, marking his journey from crate to crepe. Since 2016, Roger W. has set his tiny furry paws on over 60 flights, 20 ferries, and hundreds of trains across 3 continents, 24 countries and counting (with a pause due to the pandemic, in which he survived a strict lockdown in Catalonia for nearly a year).
To date, his humans have been to over 50 countries across 5 continents (and lived on 4 continents) in addition to 30+ states. However, as real nomads, this dynamic trio doesn’t travel for short vacations or for the sake of collecting countries. By typically spending at least several months in each destination, they’ve mastered the art of slow travel!
After leaving San Francisco, Roger has made his home in many other cities, including Los Angeles, Barcelona, Paris, Florence, Playa del Carmen, Dubrovnik, Amsterdam, New York City, and Rio de Janeiro.
Here are just a “few” places that Roger W. the furry nomad has set his paws in:
A true alpha dog, Roger W. has a really bad case of FOMO so you’ll see him licking his chops to the yummiest food and marking up the coolest dog-friendly spots in the world. Besides barking out his unique experiences as a world traveling Yorkie, he’s here to teach you how to travel with your dog (your precious four-legged best friend) and keep him or her healthy (and happy) on the road! If you sniff out his little Yorkie buttocks longer, you’ll find some healthy travel tips and paw-lickin’ recommendations for humans. As the pack leader, he likes to take care of his entire pack!
As his humans would attest, he’s also the self-proclaimed #1 Human Trainer. He knows what he wants and HOW to get it. 🙂 His favorite thing to do in the world is to sniff out and eat the BEST food, making him the cutest (or is it MANLIEST?) international foodie. On the other hand, his least favorite thing to do in the world is to brush his decay-prone teeth, which he needs to do after all his chops-lickin’ meals!
In 2021, he added a new member to his pack – Penny Rose a.k.a. Penny Gurl, a sweet 8 lb. Papillon-Dachshund mix who he found lost and scared on the streets of San Francisco. After many domestic wet nose escapades, Roger W. and Penny R. finally hopped on their first international flight together! From Mexico, they flew to Panama and then Brazil. Stay tuned to see where they’re off to next!
