Guest blogger with a special announcement!

Hello, everybody!  Bridget here.  Guess what . . .

I got a new car!!!

P1100693Is this a sweet ride or what? 

I’m so excited about my car that RVSue said I could tell you all about it in a guest post!

First, the surprise.

One day RVSue, Reggie and I leave our camp near Roosevelt Lake, Arizona, and ride over the mountain to Globe.  RVSue says she has some “packages” to pick up at the UPS Customer Center.

O-kaaaay . . . .

She backs the Perfect Tow Vehicle up to the loading dock.

P1100595Reg and I are sitting up front.  With all the paraphernalia in the PTV, we can’t see what is being loaded in the back.

I don’t know anything about the car until we’re home again and RVSue lifts a big box out of the back of the PTV.   She sets it on the blue mat by our door and says . . .

“Look what I got for you, Bridgie Baby!”

She assembles the car and puts me in it.  With Reggie’s tether in hand and her ever-present camera, we take off down the road from our camp.

That’s when it hits me . . . .

This is MY car! 

P1100692Oh, the ride is so smooth!  I glide along, even over bumps!  I know I’m lookin’ good, too!

P1100681RVSue pushes my car over the washboard part of the road.

“Just to test it out,” she says.

P1100678My car goes over the ridges like they aren’t even there.

It feels like I’m in a small rowboat, gently rocking on waves.  At least that’s what RVSue says.  I’ve never been in a small rowboat rocking on waves.  I think I’d like it!

P1100686Let me tell you about my car’s features.

Well, first off, the color is called Midnight River, which I love!  It reminds me of the time we camped next to a river and when we went out for a potty break, there was a full moon and . . . .

Oh, never mind that.  Excuse me.  I get carried away sometimes.

My car has all terrain tires, like the PTV!

They’re made out of rubber, not plastic, and they’re big which provides a high-lift axle for rough roads.  It has rear shocks, too.   I can go anywhere, as long as RVSue keeps pushing, that is!

This next photo shows the kind of terrain my car can handle. 

Reggie is worried.  He doesn’t know that RVSue put the emergency brake on!

P1100683I like riding with the top down best of all.

There’s something about a convertible that makes a gal feel young!

When the sun is harsh, the shade screen keeps me comfortable.

P1100703The top goes all the way down and locks.  It hides me for stealth mode.  There’s no need to be stealthy when boondocking!

See the handy basket below me? 

Since this picture (below) was taken, we’ve assembled some supplies that stay in the basket for our rides.  Things like a comb and needle-nose pliers for taking cholla out of Reggie, my black suit with lead, even field guides for RVSue, her monocular, lots of stuff!

P1100694We could pack a picnic lunch along with some drinks and my car can carry it all.  Isn’t that wonderful?

It’s fun to roll along on a nice day, watching the scenery go by.

RVSue laughs because my head pivots from side to side.  I’m just taking in the panoramic view!

We park the car to admire cactus blooms.

P1100696I’m happy to wait in my car.  RVSue says I still have to walk.  I can’t ride in my car all the time.  I need to keep my muscles strong, she says.

It looks like one of the prickly pear “pads” was knocked over in the recent storm.  The flowers still are pretty.

P1100697My car is roomy!

I could lie down and stretch out, if I wanted to.  I prefer to sit up.  Riding in my car is too much fun to lie down!

P1100679I’ve talked a lot about how much I like my car.

I left out something important — freedom!

Walking together has been a problem for us.  I’ve tried not to complain when RVSue and Reggie leave me behind at camp when they go walking, but I hate it. They hate it, too.

After all, we like to be together all the time.

When I go on walks, I try my best to keep up, but I usually lag behind.  Reggie goes so fast, it wears me out!  RVSue cuts our walks short for me and that’s not fair for her and Reggie.

Now with my new car . . .

No more do I have to stay at camp when I’m feeling achy!

P1100700Folks, there comes a time when we need to accept our age, right?

Besides, I’d rather ride in comfort than traipse in the dirt!

P1100674RVSue says I’m the prettiest flower in the desert.

I hope you enjoyed my guest post.  You’ll see more of me and my car in future posts!

    Love your car Bridget but do you have a license to drive it ???

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Bridget? Drive a car? Why drive when she has ME for a chauffeur? 🙂

      Congratulations on 2nd place, Janis!

  2. Colleen from Alabama says:

    Wow. That is a sweet ride. You look like your having the time of your life. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Renee Galligher - Idaho says:

    Woo Hoo! Top Ten!

  4. Deb D says:

    Love it ! Bridget looks so happy! Very cool ride. She has such a great smile.
    You to Reggie ! Enjoy the ride !

  5. Dave Stewart (in missouri for now) says:

    Bridget
    Love the new car. you look so cool riding in it with the top down. what a good road to try it out on. Drive careful!
    Dave

  6. Me again Sue….well I just read the post…you know I have that exact stroller for my dogs, only it is Baby Blue the color of my car…we look really cute together and it is roomy enough to hold both my babies…really, really good choice. I bought it so I can take the dogs in every terrain…it goes up in the montains with us just fine. The tires fill nicely, but one time I had my neighbor use his compressor to fill the tires and he blew one up!…too much air…we all laughed and I have to take it to a bicycle shop to get a new tire…it is really sturdy and is perfect for HRH.

    You Bridgee Baby will love it and you look so classy in it. And oh Bridget, I know how you feel about have the convertible top down and the wind in your hair, nothing like it. Enjoy your new classy ride.

    Oh one more thing…………….

    #1. ha!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Shirlene,

      I remember you mentioning the stroller you had for your pups and wondered if this is the same one. It really is nice. I can’t believe how much easier it is to push her in it. And yes, she looks very classy!

      Oh, dear, you blew up one of the tires! That must have caught your attention. Haha! I think I’ll stick to the hand pump. Seriously, I’m glad no one was hurt.

      #1… I think you’re gloating… 🙂

  7. Renee Galligher - Idaho says:

    Oh! I love Bridgies new car! She looks so happy. In every photo she has this happy “look at me” type of look. I giggled at each one. Yes, she needed the larger stroller with the all terrain tires. The shade and screen bonnet is an added bonus too. What a nifty ride. I’ll have to remember that when my little Rat Terrier gets to the point of needing a little help now and then.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I hemmed and hawed about spending that amount of money. When I thought about how I’d feel after Bridget is no longer with us, if I didn’t get the stroller for her when she could enjoy it … well, that pushed me to place the order. She’s worth it!

      And so is your rat terrier, right?

  8. Dave r says:

    Nice ride!

  9. Steve says:

    That is a very very nice vehicle. I’ll take a look at your link to see if they make one big enough for a bloodhound. They are both healthy now but we know that you never know when a back might go out. Of course even if they did make a vehicle that big, I would not be able to lift the 100+ pound hound into the seat … LOL

    Glad to see the look on Bridget’s face as she rode along … that’s a happy dog.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Steve,

      You’ll find a way to give the best care you can when the time comes.

    • Ronda western WA says:

      Maybe a loading ramp? Similar to the way they load live stock into trucks. It may need some creative custom engineering.

  10. eliza says:

    bridget looks so happy!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      She is happy with her car, eliza. This morning I took Reggie outside, intending to go back inside to lift Bridget off the bed. (I try to lift her, rather than letting her jump, on account of her back leg.) Before I had a chance to go back inside, she was whining. I know why! She didn’t want to miss out on another ride!

  11. Suzette (TN) says:

    Oh, Bridgie! I love your car! I can tell you do, too! I hope you put many, many miles on it.

  12. Alice (So. Fla) says:

    Very nice car !!! So happy for the baby. It says can hold up to 75 pounds, so you could put Reggie in there too. I have taken both of my dogs in rest stops, banks, some stores in the stroller. I zip it closed and it works.

    Congrats!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I may put them both in the stroller for when we “go stealth” like you do with your dogs. For now, it’s a Bridget-only car.

  13. Annie in Oregon says:

    So excited for you Bridget!!!!? Now you can be out and about like everybody else. Very nice ride and you look pretty sharp sitting in it.

  14. Lee J in Northern California says:

    That is the most wonderful post. Congratulations Miss Briget on your new convertible. I do think you need a pair of Doggles to protect your eyes when Sue gets going fast down hills!
    Beautiful photos of that precious faces, she looks so happy..talk about stylin!

  15. Barb from Hoquiam! says:

    Stylin’ there Miss B! How pretty you look (and out of that nasty sun! No extra wrinkles on YOU Miss B!)! What a treat! Gosh that is a great new V-hickle. 😛

    Have a wonderful walk! Hugs from Hoquiam!
    Barb

  16. Phiesty in Utah says:

    Bridget, I love this and so appreciate your sharing. I am hitting the road soon myself along with my mom and two sisters-in-fur. It would be nice to not have to go for short walks on the leash with mom and then sit shut-up in the RV while each of the others have their turn. Mom has tried walking us all at the same time, but Olive is a scaredy cat and always tries to hide or run away and Gabby just sits and hisses or growls and we all get in a tangled mess. This looks like all three of us could ride securely at the same time and get a really nice dose of fresh air while mom enjoys nature. Please update me as you use your new car more and share good/bad things that you notice after it has more miles on it.
    Loving the pictures of you and how happy you look with your new freedom. I’ll bet Reggie will appreciate the extra time to explore.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Great comment! We will keep you posted on the car as time goes by. Thank you, Phiesty in Utah!

  17. Linda - from Central Illinois says:

    Yay, Bridgett!
    You look like such a happy girl… lots of pictures with you looking at the camera with a big smile.
    You are such a lucky girl!
    Linda

  18. Lynn Brooks says:

    Great Post, Bridget!!!
    You car is gorgeous !!!
    I know you will all 3 be happier being together!!!
    Lynn B. (Baltimore, MD)

  19. Debra (CO) says:

    Hi Bridget – I can tell you REALLY love your new car. Look how many photos you let Sue take and you smiled for all of them ? I’m so glad you won’t have to stay behind any more.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Debra,

      It is great having a way for Bridget to come with us on walks again. Now we can go farther and it’s more fun!

  20. Tara from Pac NW says:

    Oh man, that gave me a lump in my throat and shiny eyes to see Bridget’s happiness. Sue, you are such a good pet mom!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Tara,

      I should have purchased a car sooner. Shipping is difficult. One of the reasons we returned to Roosevelt Lake was to take advantage of the UPS hub in Globe. I bought some nifty items for myself, too, which I will show in a post. Of course. 🙂

  21. Barbara (Nashville) says:

    Love your guest post Bridget. You look so happy and comfy in your new car, even grown ups can be jealous.

  22. I have a question. A few posts back yu mentioned a camping area that is closed. On fox news today they had a report of Saudi Arabia buying up land in Ca. and Az. to grow wheat and ship back to their country. Water shortages there. There are also rumors our BLM is being sold off to foreign entities. My ? Is have yu run into anyone with knowledge of what’s happening?

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      No, I haven’t heard anything, Sandra. Here’s a link to an article about it for those who don’t know.

      This is an example of what “globalization” costs us. The presidential election this fall is extremely important. I wish people would ignore the propaganda of the media and do their own research instead of accepting what they are spoon-fed. There’s only one candidate who addresses this issue and he is vilified by the media.

      If we continue down this same path, I fear our nation is lost. And that’s all I’m going to say about that!

      • Dawn says:

        Amen sister!

      • Scary times we are in. Thanks for posting the info.

      • Nancy from South Georgia says:

        And a big old THANK YOU for stating the truth, Sue. I like the way you think.

      • Joyce Sutton says:

        Interesting article. I didn’t know that

      • Pamela K. says:

        Sue,
        Remember my post comments about the campground closings? Well, I had a friend, a university professor in AZ, tell me what was heard in the wind about this. I had to bite my tongue to not say anything in my post comment — it being so political and all. But, yes, there seems to be a lot going down regarding the BLM Lands, especially the campgrounds. It makes me both mad and sad. It seems anything and everything is can be bought for a dollar!
        Makes ya wonder when “they” are going to hold a Global Lotto of all our stuff U.S. holdings…

      • Geri in the beautiful Florida panhandle says:

        I agree with you 100% Sue!

  23. Bill & Ann C, Oregon says:

    Great post Bridget. Samantha and Julie love their stroller.

  24. Jan Johnson says:

    Great car, Bridget! You look so much more comfortable than in the old one and now you can go more places! Have fun!

  25. Oh Bridget you are one happy stylin’ gal!!! You are the prettiest flower in the desert :). !!!!!!

  26. KC says:

    Nice dog car. Since it is inner tubes be prepared for a few flats now and again out there in the wild. A bicycle shop can set you up for emergency repairs with a basic tool kit, patches, glue and spare tubes. It is not all that hard to patch or change an inner tube. I managed to do it when I was 8 years old!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks for the reminder to purchase a patch kit, KC. I had one for our inflatable canoe and gave it to the thrift store along with the canoe.

      • Corkerinna620 (Mobile AL) says:

        I’ve wondered about your inflatable. As I was reading archives I didn’t read all comments so didn’t know you no longer had it. Guess I need to go back now & read the comments. 🙂

  27. Elaine Mari says:

    Bridget, you are beyond adorable and your new ride suits you to a T. So great of RVSue to ensure your style and comfort.

  28. Karen LeMoine says:

    Bridget honey that is some awesome wheels! You have a wonderful Mom who loves you so much! Glad you will have more time outside with the family! Yes the color is beautiful. Happy motoring!

  29. Judy in Horn Lake, Ms says:

    Oh good, even Miss Bridgett likes her picture taken in such a cool ride. I love this one and have to look to see if they have one for my Patti girl. She would love it when she is feeling poorly

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      It’s worth the money for your Patti … and that means a lot coming from a frugal person like myself!

  30. Love your posts Sue and crew. This one had me laughing so hard my face and ribs hurt. Bridge is a talented writer too. Please keep them coming.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Marilyn. I’ll be sure to invite Bridget back to guest blog again!

      • Geri in the beautiful Florida panhandle says:

        I’d like to hear from Reggie too! Hear his view of being a boondocker for over a year now!

  31. Shawna (Far Northern Cali) says:

    Oh, I am so glad Miss Bridget has you RVSue. She’s a lucky old gal; you treat your furbabies so well.

  32. Gail from Buckeye AZ says:

    Bridget, my Teddy and Willy have the same one in Green and we all love being able to go anywhere with it. Teddy and Willy are Yorkies and have vey short legs so get tired easily so we walk some and then they ride some. The big wheels make the ride easy and smooth. I know how much you are going to enjoy your new RIDE! You are a lucky lady to have such a Wonderful Car!

  33. peggy says:

    What a nice car Bridget!!! I also love convertibles. Looks like you enjoy having your photo taken now that you look so “stylish” in your new ride. I so enjoy it when you have your “fur kids” as your guest bloggers…..you all rock.. Thanks again I really enjoyed it.

  34. Gingerita in NE Indiana ( for now) says:

    That is one sweet ride Miss B ! You look so happy! How clever of RVSue to think of this nifty mode of transport.

  35. Linda-NC says:

    Bridget you made me laugh! You are definitely upper crust now in your new wheels. You certainly are pretty in it and that smile says it is so. Why you can go anywhere! Go Bridget!!!!!!!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Ha! That’s right, Linda. Bridget can go anywhere in her all-terrain vehicle. 🙂

  36. bess in oregon says:

    Renee from Idaho and Julie, Molly & gizmo (Idaho),
    thanks soooo much for the good Idaho scenic places to visit and to camp. i appreciate you taking the time to write. i have copied it to my folder on camping places in the West and will include your ideas in our trip in June and July.

    there was someone else looking for this information, i can’t remember who, (about 3 posts ago) so i hope they see the message you wrote in the last post. maybe i will go back and try to find the person’s name.

    thanks to you Sue for helping us Blogorinos connect and share. much love sent your way. bess

    • Renee Galligher - Idaho says:

      You are most welcome! There is so much to do in Eastern Idaho, Montana, Wyoming. One of our favorite locations and it’s not too far from our home!

      • Julie, Molly & gizmo (Idaho) says:

        That blog from the big wheel rvers was great but now can’t find or too lazy to search. I did see those boys don’t have a way to subscribe or am I missing something? Renee where are you located?

        • Renee Galligher says:

          We live in Meridian, just west of Boise. I’m not sure how to subscribe to their blog, but their entry titles are descriptive of the location.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Same to you, bess!

  37. Nice New Car n’ Post, Bridget,,,, we were getting bit by the Mo-skeet-toes bad at that camp so we went north and south and now we are camped off Black Rock road, just south of Utah and St, George on BLM land, we’ve seen snow and cold and dad doesn’t want to move for awhile,, me too, it’s been hard for us to find a camp to where we don’t have to move every other day,, my dad asked a man just 15 minutes ago if there is camping here and the man said yes, so here we are,,,, you 3 have a great week and I love your new car,,, say hi to Sue and Reggie for me, er us,,,, Miss Piper

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Aww, too bad about the mosquitoes. It seems early for them to be a problem. Darn, it’s such a pretty camp. Well, it sounds like you’ve found another camp and you’re happy with it. Great! Have a good evening, Piper and Rusty…

  38. bess in oregon says:

    it was Audrey that wanted Idaho information.

  39. Pam and Maya, Still in NY says:

    Hi Bridget, we love when you are the guest blogger, you do such a great job! Your car is awesome and I know you must love it because you are smiling in all of the photos Sue took of you! This is such great news, now you can all walk together again! Congratulations!

  40. bess in oregon says:

    i am soooo happy for all three of you on the purchase of the new car for Bridget. this is the perfect car for her and it satisfies all your needs. congratulations!!

  41. eliza says:

    Hey – I notice that this is a “jogger” pet stroller. Does this mean….Bridget got a race car?

  42. Betty says:

    Hi, Sue and Crew,
    I have been following your blog for some time now and really enjoy all your adventures. This is my first time in the comment section but I had to comment on Bridget’s new wheels. She looks so happy that I have a feeling she will be in a lot more photos. I know she seems to be a little camera shy but I can almost see a smile on her face in her new car. Thanks for sharing with us all the great places you travel. I am on a temporary stop in my travels and this helps me when the hitch itch strikes. Hope to be on the road again in the near future. Betty

    • Dawn in NC says:

      Welcome Betty! You are officially a blogorino!

      • Betty says:

        Thanks, Dawn. We seem to be on opposite coasts (I’m in California) but isn’t it wonderful how this blogging brings us together? Thanks to Sue and Crew.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Welcome, Betty! I’m delighted to see you here. There’s always room for another blogorino! 🙂

      Thank you for following my blog. I hope you are on the road soon.

    • Denise - Richmond VA says:

      Welcome, Betty! 🙂

  43. Pam Ridgely says:

    Congratulations Bridget. You sure look mighty fine riding in you new wheels. I think you had a smile in every photo. It’s nice to have something to fall back on when you get tired. Plus, look how much room there is to carry rotisserie chicken for you picnics……

    Pam

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Haha! You make me laugh, Pam, with the rotisserie chicken. I guess because it’s something we would do! Swing by WalMart, grab a chicken, and roll Bridge to the park in her car for a picnic with Reggie and me. 🙂

  44. Nancy from South Georgia says:

    I had tears in my eyes reading this post and seeing those photos of Bridget. The love is shining from her eyes; she is so expressive. You guys are going to have a ball with it.

    That is one very nice ride for arthritically challenged pups, or just for taking either of them off the road when the occasion arises. You could put them both in if the situation were overheated, or in a dangerous or challenging scenario, or, as another reader said, just for stealth. It would be fun to be able to put them in there and go inside someplace.

    Now I’m thinking I might get one just like it for my senior girl (I call her “Miss Priss”) and she knows who I’m talking about .

    • Renee Galligher - Idaho says:

      Oh, now I know what you mean by stealth mode. I have one of those Sherpa pet carriers and when we traveled, our little Maltese would ride in it, strapped in. When we got out to site see, I would take her in the bag. One time after hiking the Angel’s rim trail at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, I sat down with her and the bag and unzipped the top a little. She poked her head out and a guy on the bench jumped. He thought it was a camera bag! Now, I have no idea how anyone could think it was a camera bag because it’s pretty big, but he did.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You’re so sweet, Nancy, to be touched by Bridget’s happiness and love. You and Miss Priss have a good evening.

  45. Dawn in MI says:

    Oh Bridget! This looks excellent, love the photo of you looking back at Sue from your car. You look so happy! I’ll have to check this out, as my Katie-girl is slowing down. But she loves to go on walks…she just decides she’s done and sits down when we’re as far away as we can be from the car or our house. Silly girls…do you do that on purpose?

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      That’s what Bridget does, Dawn. She will walk a short distance and then she sits down. I can’t leave her sitting in an area where coyotes roam. Before the car it meant Reggie and I had to turn around and head for home. Of course, Bridget would trot home with the energy of a teenager, having got her way. You never know with dogs… what is real and what is a power play. Oh well, the car fixes that. We’re rollin’ now!

      Maybe it is time for your Katie to ride in style… 🙂

      • Dawn in MI says:

        Today it was a beautiful 58 degrees out and we were 1/2 a mile away from the car…at the furthest away part of her park. And she sat down. I’ve often thought she was just hot…but really it wasn’t hot today. And there was a good breeze. I think it’s a power play myself. I stood with my back to her and waited. No discussion. Eventually she decided she’d walk again. For a bit. Then she sat down again. Sigh. It took us forever to get back to the car. I refused to carry her though, which is what she wanted.

  46. Sharon in MO says:

    What a wonderful ride for you, Bridgie Baby! It looks you really enjoy it. And much easier for Sue to push!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Yes, it is, Sharon. Oh gosh, a wow bird is going “Wow!” right outside the window. I wish I could see him!

  47. Ann from Texas says:

    Bridgie has such a sparkle in her eye! She loves her car!!

  48. Applegirl NY says:

    Nice Ride, Bridgie Baby. I’m so happy that now you will be on all the walks. Nothing like big fat wheels and a high axle! So much better to see all of those fabulous desert blooms. Yeah for you!

  49. Utah Bonnie says:

    Oh Bridget, what a stylin’ cool ride you’re rocking around in the desert. I can tell by the big grin that you approve. Reggie is probably jealous but he’ll get over it.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Bonnie,

      Reggie couldn’t care less. He loves running around, sniffing here and there, lifting his leg, doing the backhoe, kicking up dirt…. Totally different personality and, well, being a boy . . . . 🙂

  50. Pam N. says:

    Wow! Love your new car! Very special wheels for a very special little lady.

  51. kris says:

    Awwwwww, enjoy yourself, Bridget, sweetie! XOXOX

  52. DesertGinger says:

    Well I love Bridget’s car! I don’t know, just guessing, but I bet you could zip both guys in there, empty the tray underneath, and go grocery shopping. That way you don’t have to leave them outside when it gets hot.
    I think I’m getting discharged tomorrow, ready or not. Whoopee!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Yay, freedom!!!

      It’s easier just to go shopping very early in the day. You know how cool the desert can be before 9 a.m. Remember I’m a morning person. 🙂

      Sleep well tonight and have a successful escape tomorrow!

        Well it didn’t turn out as I expected. The doctor has scheduled me for a procedure Friday where they will electro-shock my heart to try to get me out of afib. After that, the rehab hospital said I could stay till Saturday. So I’m getting Chloe and heading home this weekend! Yay! I’ll still have a month of nice weather to get my AC repaired and get ready for summer. And maybe I’ll be feeling good because I won’t be in afib!

        • Barbara (Nashville) says:

          DG, Hope all continues to go well for you. Fixing the afib will make you feel much better. Take care.

  53. Pauline in Mississippi says:

    Oh Bridget, I am so happy for you and you look so happy riding in your new car. You even look happy with Susan snapping all those pictures. We are so glad you didn’t mind because we love seeing you in your new ride looking so content. You deserve the pampering ! Sending love to you….Reggie and of course, My Sister Susan!

  54. Penny in AR says:

    Oh, Bridget, I love your new wheels! I’m so glad you can feel the wind in your hair or have shade so your nose won’t burn. And I love the look of gratitude you show your Mom in your over-the-shoulder glances! It looks SO much more comfy for you and also for your Mom to push…..happy trails to yoooouuuuu!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Penny. I’m so glad I went ahead and ordered the car for Bridget. She does appreciate it.

  55. Norman in San Diego says:

    Hi Sue,

    That is one sweet ride for sure. Bridget even looks happy riding in it. Nice cover for shade or rain.

    Have a good week.

    Norman

  56. heidi says:

    Oh Miss Bridget you’re so fancy! I have this same stroller in red for my seniors. Some of them can no longer walk long distances so they love to ride in it. Here in Los Angeles we can take our pups shopping and to certain restaurants so the stroller comes in handy. I know you will love it! You look so happy!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, heidi… It would be great if I could take the crew to restaurants, maybe those with outdoor seating. Sounds like you have fun with yours in their stroller. I think Reggie needs to grow up a bit more before I dare try to take him anywhere zipped up in the stroller with Bridget.

  57. Val R. Lakefield On. says:

    Bridget, you lucky girl. You look so happy in you new coach. Glad you can enjoy more walks with your family.

  58. Pookie in Todd Mission Tx says:

    I love it……I never know what Im gonna get from you young lady
    or your 2 beautiful babies….
    chuck

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, chuck,

      I try to change things up … keep you guessing, wondering what’s next. 🙂

  59. Bridget, you sure look happy! Girl, you’re riding in style, and a convertible to boot! It’s great to see you smiling at the camera 🙂

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Linda… I hope she keeps that positive, happy attitude about the camera! At least, when she’s in her stroller, she’s captive. No running to hide under the BLT.

  60. Pamelab in Houston says:

    Well, Bridget – What a lovely new car you have! And such a bonus for all three of you.

  61. Kat says:

    Wow Bridget, that is some fancy new blue car you got. I hope you remembered to thank RVSue for it. Love the stealth driving feature!

  62. MollyLuvsRoadtrippin (Seattle) says:

    “After all, we like to be together all the time.” That just pulls my heart strings Miss B – I know that feeling so well. This is just the perfect upgrade so that your entire vagabond pack can keep enjoying every wonderful sight, smell and sound together. Have fun in the new spiffy ride as your outdoor adventures continue, and thanks for sharing them with us too!

  63. Joyce Sutton says:

    I’m getting the idea that I can put the dog in the carrier and be able to shop in Walmart or aldis and not have to leave the dog in hot car. How do you push a cart? Does anyone challenge you?

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I’m not sure to whom you are directing your question, Joyce.

      I’ve never tried pushing a dog in a stroller while shopping, because there’s very little room for groceries and it would be difficult to push a stroller and a cart, too.

      I think it would be wise to keep the stroller closed up if going inside a store, not open like in these photos.

      • Joyce Sutton says:

        I actually saw a little yorkie in a cart last week. Like you I usually leave dog with a 2-3 in crack in window or not go if too too hot. With DH along one of us can stay with air on

  64. Paula in Indiana says:

    That’s a million dollar smile, Bridgie! You look so pretty in your new car! What a great post, Sue. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Bridget lift up her paw and do the royal wave ; )

  65. Cinandjules (NY) says:

    Love your new car Bridgee babee! You did a terrific job as the guest blogger! I did laugh when RVSue parked you on the hump! Your smile is precious! Enjoy your strolls and it’s so nice that you all can be together!

  66. Corkerinna620 (Mobile AL) says:

    Awww, Bridgie Babe. Love yoyr new wheels. You’re quite stunning in it. I know you’ll enjoy. Eager for more pics. I know you will enjoy your strolls with Sue & Reggie.

  67. Rhodium, RI says:

    I bet Bridget has noticed that bottom basket is just the right size to hold a rotisserie chicken.

  68. Don in Okla. says:

    Wonderful!!! What a neat rig for Bridgett!! And you are so kind for including her when she is achy but would still like to go.

  69. Nicki says:

    I am so happy for you! The family is now always together! And you sure look so beautiful in that beautiful blue. Life just got bigger for you! Congratulations!
    May the fun begin!

  70. Larry in AR says:

    I’ve mentioned before that I usually don’t post just to repeat what so many others have already said, but this time I have to say that my heart is glad to see the sheer joy in Bridget’s eyes. Makes me want to take her in my lap and show her some love. Perhaps you could do that for me. ((((Bridget))))

  71. ValGal (westernWA) says:

    Bridge, you look soooo happy! That is a truly awesome ride. Very, very luxe. Is Reggie jealous?

    Glad to hear there’s room on board for the cholla spine removal tools! Most important! At least you’re safe from them in your car.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, ValGal…. No, Reggie isn’t jealous. He loves to walk and run, rather than ride.

  72. Barbara from Camano Island says:

    Bridget, a Rolls Royce it is!! You look positively regal.

  73. JazzLoverWMa says:

    Wow Bridget, what a great guest post you have written. Your new car is very spiffy, no wonder you look so happy in these pictures. Look like you are driving it in the second and third ones. Good color for you too. May you enjoy it for many years to come but don’t forget about getting some exercise so you don’t wear RVSue out. Sue you could not have done anything more meaningful than getting Bridget a new car. I see many adventures coming from this purchase and many laughs as well. You are a wonderful, loving Mom and what proves this more than this special present for your girl. The last picture says it all.
    Stay Well,
    JazzLover

  74. Mel from North Texas says:

    Love the “car”! Kori has a doggie stroller…she is my 4th cavalier to use it..bought it 15 yrs ago and still in great shape..it stays folded up in the car all the time.
    The stroller is wonderful when out in public other than food stores…retail stores and outdoor restaurants don’t seem to mind dogs when they aren’t on the floor…no risk of accidents or perceived risk to other customers. Reggie may have to learn to ride sooner than later so you & the crew can fully enjoy the advantages of having a doggie car! Keep us posted please…

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Mel. . . We will keep you posted on how the car works for us. 15 years — a product that lasts! I’m letting the car be Bridget’s territory for now. Reggie isn’t interested in it and we don’t hang out in public places much anyway.

  75. AZ Jim says:

    Bridget you are a lucky lady indeed. You have a human who loves you as no one else could and you lead a charmed life as a result. I bet you are really happy with the new ride. There’s almost enough room in it for little Reggie too. Maybe one day you’ll give him a ride in it. Missy, you do good work. *Hug*

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Jim. I’ll train Reggie to ride in it. Not right away. I think Bridget feels special having it all to herself. She has to share a lot with Reggie.

  76. Elaine in Colorado says:

    O.M.G. so adorable that Bridget! I just love that Bridget is so photogenic!

  77. Elizabeth in WA says:

    Lovely, lovely…Bridget does look very pleased too!!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      She is pleased, Elizabeth. She liked her old thrift store stroller and this one is much better.

  78. Virginia Henkaline says:

    Very very nice ,Sue. Many dogs each day are walked past our home and I have never seen one in its own car. But that is a great idea and your special Bridget earned it.:)

  79. Ronda western WA says:

    WooHoo Bridget! Love the new wheels! Enjoy your off-road adventures!

  80. Susan in south central WA says:

    Dearest Bridget (and family),
    I’ve been reading since the start and I must say this posting is the most Bridgie smiles per mile I have ever seen! Your new car in wonderful!

  81. Cindi - Newport News VA says:

    Such a sweet story!! What a loved and pampered pooch!!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Cindi . . . Bridget receives boneless, skinless chicken breast each morning, she sleeps in the same bed as I do, and now she has her own wheels!

  82. casitagirl says:

    Wow Bridget! Classy, but functional too. I can see that it fits you to a tee! Have fun!

  83. Eileen Dykeman says:

    Congratulations on your new car, Bridget. You sure do look happy on your rolling throne, and I’m happy for you too!

  84. weather says:

    What a great way to harmonize the journey you three are on, with each other and with the earth. The new car works perfectly with the nature and condition of you, Bridget, Reggie, whatever surrounds you… In a recent reply you wrote I may ask myself…”Am I living with nature…?” , you’ve chosen just the right thing to do that while enriching your lives with even more happiness. Wonderful idea and an elating post!

    Thank you for that, Sue,and for the nice wishes for my time with family. I saw your replies the evening you wrote them at bedtime and fell asleep smiling. It has been grand, today will be a travel day for them, I’ll rejoin them tomorrow for the rest of our visit. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this one with your family 🙂

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thank you, weather . . . . I’m happy your day was “grand.” Enjoy the rest of their visit!

  85. Pamela K. says:

    Bridgie Baby!

    YOU ARE LQQKIN’ SO FINE!!!
    I am simply Over-The-Moon-Happy for you!
    Your new *ride* is so Mod! Eco-friendly with all that netting too. Love the basket — that can hold the *stuff* a lady has to have with her 🙂 You can even share some of that basket space with Reggie for his toys he takes on his walks so RV Sue doesn’t have to carry them for him. I especially love the color and design of your new car! It is big — almost like having your own RV. Next we will see you having your own personalizes licence plate, decorating with house plants and installing surround sound to play smooth Jazz — HA! Tell RV Sue to get you a matching bed throw, for when those morning walks turn cooler. Oh My! Just run with it GIRL — you earned it — ENJOY!

    Sue, I’m sooo happy you did this for Bridgie. So extra, extra special a gift for such a deserving Princess!!! May all of you have many delightful walks and Delicious pick-nicks together — many fun times ahead together again. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thank you, Pamela . . . “almost like having your own RV” … especially when loaded with necessities like rotisserie chicken! I like the matching bed throw suggestion. 🙂

  86. MB from VA says:

    Hi Bridget! I love your new car! It is soooo pretty. Sometimes when MB, Wyndy and I go walking I have a hard time keeping up because I…..have……SHORT LEGS! 🙂 MB carries me sometimes just so I can rest up a bit and Wyndy (Retriever/Hound) can stretch out. I’m thinking Santa needs to know about this car. Thanks for the link. 😉 MB says that she can tell that you love your new car because of the way you are smiling in all the pictures. Enjoy! Love from VA. Bella (Chihuahua)

  87. Susan in Dallas says:

    Bridget is smiling in every picture! New ride makes a girl happy.

  88. Diane, Blue Ridge Mts, VA says:

    Way to Go Bridget! Love your new Rig! I can tell you love it too, Great shot of you looking over your shoulder to smile at Sue with love and approval! Take Care Sue and Crew.

  89. rvsueandcrew says:

    Hi, Blogorinos!

    I hope you are having a wonderful day! The crew and I are breaking camp this morning. We planned to leave yesterday and couldn’t. This camp is a tough one to leave!

    However, today is our 14th day in the Roosevelt Lake area so we must. Thank you for the affection shown toward Bridget in your responses to her blog about the new car.

    As always, I remind you that we may not have internet at our next camp, although I’m pretty sure we will. Be kind, be well, be happy and we will . . .

    See ya’ later!
    Sue

  90. So many smiles from you! Great to see you enjoying your new wheels, and getting out and about with the other two 🙂 Hope you all enjoy being together again – and lots of picnics too!

  91. cateW says:

    Hi Sue,

    I “zoomed” right by your request to hold comments on the previous post showing all the beautiful desert blooms. Oops…if you want to know what I said…I’m second from the bottom of the comments.

    Mostly about appreciation and support for your journal/personal needs met while you share the journey with us.

    wishing all of you another beautiful camp,
    CateW

  92. Brandy says:

    Bridget aint you cute in your new car. Just precious.

  93. Wendy in Thailand says:

    Safe travels, I loved your story Bridget, made my heart smile. Stay safe you three.

  94. Chris B sunny Southern California says:

    This has to be my favorite post. If I didn’t know better, I would think that you have a screw loose! Bridget’s face is hysterical! I’m sitting her giggling away. By that way, that is a very nice ride for the Bridge. She is stylin’ now!

    Great post, Sue!

    The flowers where we went were nowhere as good as your Arizona flowers.

    Chris and Diego

  95. Kay from KC! says:

    To The Divine Miss B! You look stunning in your new wheels and I love the way you describe everything! Soon your lips will be flapping and your ears waving in the wind when Miss Sue pushes you around. Reggie will have to run to keep up with you! Please enjoy and keep blogging!

    Kay from KC!

  96. Nancy s says:

    Love this dog stroller. I wanted one for Chloe but the only ones I’ve seen is for little dogs. I’ve seen several yorkies riding in them, but nothing that would fit a 46 pound lab mix. I think this will. Bridgett sure looks happy.

  97. Pamela K. says:

    Hello Miss Bridget,
    My name is Sadie (Pretty Lady, after the movie). Well, I’ve gotta tell you — that new car of yours is pure Diva Material! I have such Car Envy now! Do you think a cat, like myself, would enjoy such a fine ride? I think so, since I walk on a lead already it would only make sense. Yes, I do think so. 🙂
    Sadie, “Mom, Where’s your purse? RV Sue put up a link for Bridget’s car — may I have your credit card?”
    Mom, “You’ll have to ask your father! Klemper, Did YOU teach her that?!”

    Later I find Sadie on my computer’s keyboard, surfing Amazon!
    Sue, I think you started *sum-thun*…

  98. KelleyinSoCal says:

    I love your new car Bridget! You look so happy! And Sue is right…you are the prettiest flower in the desert!!

  99. Phyllis in Phoenix says:

    Bridget – your own car and your own personal chauffeur! You are living the good life. I just love it when RV Sue lets you guest host. You have cheered me up immensely.

  100. Robin Leigh Linden says:

    Oh Bridget is so happy she doesn’t mind being photographed! She’s even posing! Wonderful!

  101. Denise - Richmond VA says:

    Hi, Bridget,

    Such exciting news! Your shiny new chariot is a perfect fit! I love the blue color – it suits you – very regal and royal. Knowing that you will be able to enjoy walks with your Mom and Reggie makes me very happy! Thank you for sharing your wonderful news! I really like the basket and adjustable shade. Your Mom is THE BEST! Please thank Sue for taking all the pictures….you and Reggie are adorable.

    Sending you, Sue, and Reggie hugs from me and Gracie pup! Sweet dreams, little love! 🙂

    P. S. – The Globe mystery has been solved! An Amazon package! 🙂 🙂

  102. Denise - Richmond VA says:

    Hi, Sue,

    Bridget’s new car is one of your best investments! Well done! 🙂

  103. Linda (Wisconsin) says:

    It’s obvious Bridget loves her car. Such a happy face! Dogs are smarter than we give them credit for sometimes. Great decision on upgrading from her old stroller. Totally worth it. Your post — and Bridget’s smile — made my day.

  104. Glenda in OZ! says:

    Oh Wow Bridget. How wonderful is your new car. Now you never need miss out on a walk with Reggie and RVSue. I am soooooooooooo happy for you! Its brilliant!

  105. Stan Watkins says:

    Is it my imagination or does she actually like being photographed in the cart ?

  106. Nivrapa in AZ says:

    HRH Bridget

    You certainly performed an illustrious achievement with this post. It is quite apparent that you are just ecstatic with your new, glamorous car. It suits you very well. Such a sophisticated carriage is fitting for your royal lineage. And it is equipped with its own footman and a chauffeur! May you enjoy many noble rides and gaze upon many a splendid vista from your grand car . Do keep your public informed of its serviceability to you. There are others who may consider a similar mode of transport, with more modest features, of course. A good day to you, my dear, and please convey my greetings to the efficient staff in your charge.—Audrey

    • bess in oregon says:

      hi audrey, did you see the responses to your inquiry about places to visit in Idaho in the last post? or the one before that? if not, reply and i will let you know what 2 people said.

      also i found a FREE site called Ultimate Public Campgrounds Project. com that has a wonderful (!) map that you use by zooming in on the areas you want to camp in. it lists lots of NFS, state parks, and even county parks. it isn’t about boondocking but using sue’s method of finding a boondock near an existing campground and this map, one could find their way. i am excited to visit Idaho this summer too.

      • Nivrapa in AZ says:

        Bess, I did see the responses on boondocking from the Idaho contingent of Sue’s blog. I made note of the comments for future reference. Thank you for thinking of me–I sure do appreciate that!!

        I’m familiar with The Ultimate Public Campgrounds. It’s very similar to freecampsites.net in that it provides you with camp possibilities in a region and serves as a launch point for further research. Both these sites lack the reviews of sites which is really useful to me. For that reason I go to Campendium. The reviews are submitted by those that have experienced the campsite. Many times photos are included. Parkcamp.com is good if you’re exploring Western national parks and their surrounding forests. Sadly, I don’t think that site is being maintained (since2014) but the info there remains helpful.

        There really is a ton of general info on forest camping on the ‘net but most just provide listings with basic info and lack the reviews of campgrounds. Still, it has a purpose. Combine the ‘net info, recommendations and my maps I can come up with a rough plan of where to boondock. Planning is such great fun!

        I doubt that I will get to Idaho this year. I will be exploring Colorado this summer and fall. I may get to the upper two thirds of eastern Utah, if time permits. Should something happen to cut short my travels in CO (wildfires come to mind) I will go to Utah and then move to Idaho. Next summer my jello plans are for Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana with Glacier NP being my ultimate destination.

        I’ll be anxious to hear about your experiences in Idaho this summer.—Audrey.

        • bess in oregon says:

          thanks Audrey for the further information. i know it will help me and perhaps other blogerinos as well!

  107. Bodhi says:

    Sue, you’ve outdone yourself! Best post ever! Bridget looks so happy!

  108. Kathy (NC) says:

    A smiling, happy Bridget – absolutely priceless. Wishing you all many wonderful miles of travel, but remember to walk sometimes!

  109. Andrea in Glendale says:

    So wonderful – absolutely perfect for her!!! My dachsie got a peek…she wants one for Christmas.

  110. rvsueandcrew says:

    Hello again, Blogorinos!

    We are settled into another boondock, not as pretty as the last one but great in other ways. I’d love to write about it right now. Instead I need to work on my taxes. Can you believe I waited until April 13th? And that’s assuming I do them today. Ha!

    Please forgive me for not replying to the comments that came in while we were moving camp and after that. If I start gabbing on here, I’m sure to procrastinate another day on the taxes. Know that every comment is read and appreciated.

    Thank you for sharing Bridget’s enthusiasm for her new car. We’ve used it twice so far at the new camp — even did a little bit of cross-country OHVing this morning! — and it was great! I think Bridget would let me push her around in it for hours . . . . Reggie is enjoying longer walks, too!

    Bye for now!

    Sue

  111. darci says:

    I have the exact same buggy for my furkids. I live alone and when we travel I can’t leave them in the car when it is hot, so in they both go. Every store has always been welcoming because of the closed front. They love it, and me too. The airlines have been excellent too. They allow me to check it at the gate when I put them into their carriers. Anyway, happy to see that you have one now too, and know you will get good use out of it. 🙂

  112. Sam in the Ozarks says:

    That new car is a great idea

  113. Chuck Hajek says:

    Hey Bridgie baby!!!! You be stylin’ now with way cool new ride! You are actually POSING for some of those pictures with that great big beautiful smile! Enjoy your new rolling throne your Highness. Your loyal subjects, Doogie and Radar

  114. Brenda says:

    Hi everyone, Bridgett I love your new ride. You look so happy in it and you looked like you really enjoyed have your picture taken. Are gonna give Reggie a ride sometime?
    Anyway just wanted to pop in and say hello to y’all. Sue, your pictures are always beautiful, still really enjoy your blog. All the best, Brenda (in Texas)

  119. Barbara (Nashville) says:

    It is April 14th. Sue have you gotten those taxes done yet? Just kidding! Bridget is so happy with her car, she would probably help you. Ha Ha!

  120. rvsueandcrew says:

    Hello! It’s me again!

    I filed my taxes electronically! I’m not done until I go to the library or some other place that will print out enclosures to go with my check to the IRS.

    I used TurboTax. No matter how reassuring the program attempts to be, I always feel like it’s only a matter of time before I go to jail.

    Bye for now,
    Sue

    • Debra (CO) says:

      Congratulations on getting that annual chore completed! I filed mine electronically also. I was going to mail in a check this week but then I noticed on the form it says that payment can be made on the irs website for no charge if payment is from checking account. I did that so saved me the bother of mailing a check. You might check that out.

      I was wondering what people do about printing and if it is worth carrying a printer. I don’t really print that often and most libraryies have printers that one can use. Since I will have limited cargo capacity I was thinking that’s what I will plan to do.

      • rvsueandcrew says:

        Thanks, Debra! I will go to irs.gov and look for a way to pay via my checking account without having to mail a check.

        Unless you have unusual circumstances, a printer isn’t necessary. You can access your files at a library and print for pennies a page. Or you can put what you want to print on a thumb drive and take it to a print shop or a place like mailboxes.com. You may be able to access your file while at these businesses and then print.

        As time goes by there are fewer and fewer reasons to print anything. 🙂

      • rvsueandcrew says:

        Done! You saved me a lot of hassle, Debra! 🙂

        • Debra (CO) says:

          Wonderful! Glad it worked out for you. I was thinking about you being out in the middle of Timbuktu and having to drive around looking for a place to print. Didn’t sound like much fun. ?

    • AlanOutandAbout - Pahrump, Pahrunp, Pahrump says:

      You don’t make enough for the IRS to care.
      As to a printer. I get my taxes done by H&R Block and they would not take a thumb drive this year, fear of viruses. So I had to print out all my stuff. I have stocks and IRA disbursements so it is a lot easier to have someone do it. There are small portable printers you can get that don’t take up much space, about the size of a carton of cigarettes.

    Lover the new ride, Bridget!
    Sue, you are so right, it was worth the purchase to see that happy smile and have her with you on your jaunts!

  124. Betsy & Mark in PA says:

    Bridgey deserves the Best! We miss our Ginger dog (standard Doxie) , she was 15 when she left us . . . .and her little friend Nutmeg ( mini Doxie , Maggie May) 13 years when she left us a year or so later, now we have Brennah, the Border collie to accompany us on our adventures! The countdown is at 3 more days . . . we are so excited! We are leaving our home and business and heading to Ft Hood, Texas to see our son and family then making our way to Chicago to see our daughter and finally back home to thank our oldest son for watching our two cats and 30 some odd acres!
    Your new “ride” is a bonus for all of you!! So happy for you all! Take care and have fun!

      Hi,Betsy and Mark,

      No wonder you miss Ginger and Maggie May. They were a part of your family for a long time. Have a safe, enjoyable trip around the country!
