Alright, guys here’s the deal. I haven’t been traveling around the world for the last seven months. I am, at the moment, grounded in the Pacific Northwest for the time being, and I’m currently working on a tech contract to replenish my funds that have been depleted from the constant travel.
Don’t get me wrong, travel is cheap, and could have continued traveling for years on end. I needed to take a little break and have some time to work on this blog and explore America(I do have many stories and content to share!).
I know I don’t write a lot about my private life often and prefer instead to share with you my adventures. A lot had happened when I got back to the States. One big thing that has happened is that I got married. I met my now wife during my travels in Eastern Europe. Someday I will write about that and share it with you, but that’s not the subject of this story.

I Got a Pup Sable Corgi for my Birthday!
Yes, my wife got me a Sable Corgi Pup for my Birthday :)
We named him Lucky. Lucky the Corgi.
|STAY LIKE A LOCAL!|
Do you want to know how to make travel (especially long-term) interesting? Stay like a local! To experience a place like a local rather than a tourist gives a whole new dimension to any adventure. I use Airbnb to rent anything from a room to an entire house. If that's not attractive enough, how about $55 off your first stay via Airbnb?
Lucky is not your common everyday red corgi. He’s the last pup of the litter that wasn’t sold (yet) from a breeder in Centralia, Washington. He’s lucky because it was destiny that he would be ours. My wife and I had a long search for a breeder in Washington State, and almost always most of them had a waiting list for their upcoming pups.
We were working to get Pembroke Welsh Corgi with a breeder in Omak, but she gave us the run around that eventually led us to Lucky’s breeder.
We got lucky with lucky. Get it?
Alright, so who’s lucky? Lucky is a Welsh Corgi. A dog breed that’s closely related to the Siberian Husky but has very short (but cute) little stubby legs. Lucky in particular is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The other breed amongst the Corgi line is the Cardigan Welsh Corgi.
Corgi means “Dwarf Dog” coming from the Welsh words Cor (meaning dwarf) and Gi (meaning dog). Corgis are an ancient breed probably brought over by the invading Vikings when they started to settle as farmers on the British Isles.
The farmers used Corgis to herd cattle and so lucky for us, is Lucky’s tendency to exhibit this trait. He would constantly chase us around the park barking and nibble at our ankle, heels, and toes. Yes, the little punk gets away with so much stuff, it’s a crime. My wife and I on some occasions get several scratches from his play herding. He gets away with it because he’s lucky to be loved by us.
Lucky is turning out to be a Sable Corgi. We first thought he was going to be the common red & white Corgi. For about a week, it appeared like he wasn’t going to be sable, but then he matured a little and started to exhibit some characteristics of a Sable Corgi with black lines and accents throughout his face. We did some further research, and we found out that Sable Corgis are the rare shade of the breed.
Lucky belongs to a traveling family and in the few weeks that we’ve had him. He’s been us to nearly all the corners of Washington State. He loves to play bite and chase us around the house so, for now, we have him gated in our kitchen. When we go out camping he sleeps fine inside the tent, but he would occasionally wake us up by licking the bejeesus out our faces.
He loves people and just about every dog he comes to contact with. We once took him out for a walk in the Seattle Pier’s Boardwalk on a busy day and boy was that a mistake. Every human, child, mother, daughters, and dudes would stop us on our tracks and ask if they could say “Hi” to Lucky. The poor guy gets constant Cat Calls from everyone he passes with whistles of “Oh how cute!” and “OMG is that a Corgi pup?”
We had one lady running towards us and practically mauled little Lucky with kisses and hugs. We had to keep a close eye on him for fear that he might get kidnapped!
Lucky is an effin’ chick magnet. If I weren’t married, I’d be one single happy dude. Chicks come running up to me to say hi to Lucky. He’s the perfect icebreaker. I don’t even have to approach first or come up with a cheesy opening line. Hell, I don’t even need to showcase my Ninja skills. No, Lucky is all the luck I need and guess what? I’d be getting lucky every night!
Okay, so let me get off my fantasy before my wife kills me. All jokes aside, I’m very lucky to have such a beautiful wife who would give me Lucky as a present. I couldn’t be more happy to have this little guy as a part of my family. He’s lucky because he sure is going to be one of the most well-traveled dogs in the world.
Here are the best travel accessories for dogs that I personally use for travel with Lucky!
