Pets That Are More Adventurous Than You

Many people postpone taking a trip because they can't find an adventurous companion. It turns out that you don't need him or her to be from the same species – take a dog, a cat, or even a chicken on your wild trip. You won't regret it. As the following list proves, some four-legged friends can easily put your current travel experience to shame. They can do much more than sleep, eat, cuddle and run around the yard occasionally.
