Adrian & Blu:

Adrian and Blu are a dynamic duo. They travel throughout the United States for Adrian’s job as a wind-energy technician. Traveling in a camper for convenience and comfort. Blu, a three-year-old Malinois and Shepherd mix, serves as Adrian’s trained guard dog. Their bond is unbreakable, and Adrian has shared several instances where Blu has kept him safe. Having Blu with him also helps to reduce Adrian’s stress and anxiety while on the road.

Luke and Maggie:

Say hello to Maggie, a 12-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback belonging to Luke. Maggie is a farm watchdog who adores receiving belly and chest rubs. Unfortunately, she has been experiencing weight problems and has been prescribed hypothyroidism medication. Even though Luke finds it challenging to encourage her to exercise due to her joint pain, he’s devoted to helping her become healthy, as taking good care of her brings them both joy. It’s a pity that Maggie is struggling with her health.
