FEATURE — SUMMER TRAVELS
SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS
Because Bowie doesn ’ t drop hair , this allows him to sleep in the bed with us inside our 4WD . Being a small dog , we feel it ’ s much safer for him to be in the car than be tied up outside all night . Our double size mattress easily fits the three of us . Plus , we also carry a fold out dog mat which we can setup on our front bench seat . This is super handy during the warmer months or if he ’ s had a late afternoon swim and is too wet to sleep in our bed .
FOOD & WATER
Our setup has been designed to cater for Bowie ’ s needs as well as our own . With 2 x 45L Tanks installed underneath the car as well as a connection with a tap & hose , this ensures we ’ re able to store enough water for drinking , rinsing & showering .
When it comes to Bowie ’ s diet , we will carry his usual dry dog food . We also enjoy catching a lot of fish on the road by fishing and spearfishing regularly . Luckily this is actually Bowie ’ s favourite food so he loves it when we ’ re cooking up extra fillets for him . When catching fish isn ’ t an option , we usually just buy fresh meat or bones from the supermarket and store it in our Dometic CFX3 46L fridge or freezer .
