Next month a little dog named Petunia, and her human, will be leaving their hometown in New Jersey, by bicycle, and heading to Virginia to start cycling Adventure Cycling Association’s TransAmerica route all the way to Astoria, Oregon! A journey of over 4,000 miles, the duo will be documenting their travels and turning them into a documentary. According to this adventurous dog’s human, “Petunia is seat belted into her dog pod via a chest harness that has a seatbelt low in the front, and another one on the back that prevents her from getting too far out when she’s enjoying the fresh air. She likes to ride and hasn’t tried to jump out. She has a special signal for when she needs a potty break (and she’s pretty regular so I can anticipate break times mostly).” It’s clear that this pup was born to ride!
The duo will be doing this ride no matter what, but they would love your help for a GoPro Hero+ camera to capture their adventures in HD, a small and lightweight solar charging device, and a few bike parts and trip supplies. They are only asking for $500 on GoFundMe and any proceeds beyond that will go to The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. Follow their adventures on Petunia’s WonderDog blog.
