Name: Jeff Clark and his dog, Haley
Age: Jeff appeared to be around 40, Haley’s but a pup
Breed: Jeff’s a white guy; Haley’s a collie mix
Headed from: Their home in Pagosa Springs, Colorado
Headed to: Carlsbad, California — a ride of more than 900 miles
Miles to go: About 600
Mode of transportation: A bicycle built for two, on which Clark installed a shopping cart over the back seat. Haley rides, leashed, in the cart, her favorite toy, a blue stuffed cat, dangling from its side. At night, they sleep in RV parks, or alongside the road.
Quote: “Everybody says I’m crazy, and I’m going to prove them right.”
(Roadside Encounters is a regular feature of “Dog’s Country,” the continuing tale of one man and one dog spending six months criss-crossing America (but with sense enough to do it in a car).
