‘Rowen’, Our Nearly 6-Month Newfoundland Puppy, Takes ‘Fort Williams’ (Maine) By Storm, May 28, 2021.

Her 2nd visit to ‘Fort Williams’. Her 1st visit was on Teischan’s 15th birthday, in March. It is close to a 2-hour drive but I custom fitted the cargo area of our new Volvo VC60 for her comfort & safety. Worked out. Did NOT hear a word from her in complain. She did bark a few times at people & dogs she spotted through the back window. So, it worked out.

‘Rowen’, Our Nearly 6-Month Newfoundland Puppy Checking Out Her Customized Cargo Area In The Volvo VC60.

We got the Volvo VC60 for her! I was going to get a ‘Genesis G70’ when Teischan (15), Rowen’s official owner, notified me that she needed me to get a Rowen-carrier & if I did not my chances of her (meaning Teischan) travelling with me would be greatly diminished. It was she who ended up picking the VC60 after I had settled on a ‘Volvo V60’ wagon. Now, she is saying we might need to upgrade to a VC90!

Anywho, I had got a bunch of stuff, from Amazon, to customize the cargo area for Rowen. These included a metal grill to keep her from trying to climb over the back seat plus TWO (2) padded, full-length cargo area covers. So there are two layers of padding for her in the back.

We, i.e., all three of us (viz. Rowen, her owner & I), are going on another day trip to Maine. Rowen’s 2nd trip to Maine. Same place as the last time — which was on March 22, 2021 (i.e., Teischan’s birthday). ‘Fort Williams’, by Portland. It is Teischan’s favorite ‘local’ spot (i.e., within 90-minutes) of home. I am very partial to the place too. So, it works out. Will be a good test for all of us.
