Trio Mark Williams, Kate O'Malley and little Sprocket have just spent two weeks on an epic road trip.
Together, they have conquered Romania and Bulgaria - a 2000 kilometre adventure!
But this little woolly dog doesn't belong to Mark and Kate... Sprocket is a resident of Little Angels Rescue Bulgaria.
Can you believe he used to look like this?
Candy of Little Angels Rescue Bulgaria took Sprocket in...
And cleaned him up!
He now lives happily with 14 other lovely rescue dogs - and Candy.
Mark and Kate are animal lovers and interpret travellers, which they combine by using the website TrustedHousesitters. This global community allows them to stay in properties around the world that have animals and look after people's pets when they are away. And that's how they met Sprocket.
Sprocket used to be a doorbell dog - chained to a box, his only purpose was to alert his owner to visitors. Housesitting for Candy opened the couple's eyes to the plight of dogs in Eastern Europe, and the wonderful individuals working to help them.
So Kate and Mark formulated a plan - the Rescue Dog Road Trip!
They borrowed Sprocket for an adventure and blogged about his travels on their site, Vagrants of World Travel, to raise awareness of mistreated dogs.
And Sprocket loved every minute of it...
Even when it rained!
Sprocket is a wonderful ambassador for Little Angels Rescue Bulgaria, which not only rehomes over 100 dogs a year, but also neuters between 150-200, helping to reduce the unwanted dog population in the first instance.
