…dog lovers, travelers, and kids of all ages! I´m Chaucer, a real-life wire-hair fox terrier. I´m so pleased you´ve wandered on over to my redesigned and expanded website.
KIDS… Check out my travelogues (that´s a fancy word for travel diary) by clicking the "On the Road Again" link above. Here you can read all about my adventures – from the four months I spent larkin´ and barkin´ across the U.S.A. in a big house on wheels to my latest exciting excursions exploring this great country of ours. I have plenty of silly pictures and entertaining stories to share with you (plus a few science experiments that involve fun ingredients like mud and ice cream).
ANYONE TRAVELING WITH A DOG… Whether you prefer the RV lifestyle or historic B&Bs when taking a road trip, I invite you to "Paws Awhile" at my travel resource section. I´ve been searching the land for dog-friendly hotels and inns, dog-friendly restaurants – even dog-friendly tourist attractions, historical sites and museums, and national parks. I´ve also included my delightfully insightful reviews of the kennels and dog resorts I´ve boarded at around the country.
Don´t see any entries for the city you´re planning to visit?! Check back soon as this section will receive regular updates. Or use the "Talk to Me!" link on most pages to send me your own recommendations of dog-friendly lodgings, restaurants, and activities!
TEACHERS AND PARENTS… My travelogues contain plenty of educational sidebars for my younger readers. And as we launch my new books, the Chaucer in the Classroom Series, I will be expanding that section of my site. We plan to offer comprehensive listings of kid-safe online resources to supplement classroom study of the places I visit and the topics in my books.
A word about my less fortunate friends… Click on the “Chaucer Friends” box at right to read more about our efforts to assist homeless dogs and cats through the animal-rescue group SPARE – and how you can help.
Now, pack your bags and let´s start exploring America!
