Barney’s dreaming of camping in the Cali. I’ve pitched an awning, like a tent, in the front/side garden, for use as a quiet retreat and chillout zone . This is the sleeping annexe - no groundsheet and we remove the sleeping compartment after we've slept in it at the weekends. Apart from being in the van, he’s never been so happy.

Looking on youtube I found this video (created from photos in free software at animoto.com). Turn your sound on, it has a cool backing track.

Jack passed away before we got the Cali but the younger Barney is now nearly 12 and has loved the Cali from day one. Jack did though choose our last campervan (Toyota Hiace). When we went to look at it he wouldn't get out (he was very wise). Then when I said to the salesman, "Yes, I think this will do us just fine" he jumped out and sat by my feet. How about that for a good omen.

Jack and Barney had many happy travels together and when we first went camping without Jack Barney hated going for a walk from the van (as if we were leaving Jack behind). Here's a little snapshot of them together.

Greyhound or whippet? It's difficult to get a sense of his/her size from the photos. Gorgeous anyway!

Ready for 40 winks after a long paw patrol

Barney with Marshall from Paw Patrol at the PDSA festival in a day, Cheltenham racecourse A couple of years ago. We stayed at the caravan club site at the racecourse. Great day and Kaiser Cheifs concert in the evening. Don’t think they have plans for another though.

Passenger seat facing forward. This is Barney’s sleep and chill out zone (when he’s not trying to muscle in on the bench seat). Two cot quilts: one to protect the door and dash and keep the draughts out, the other to snuggle in to.
