Bandito and Luigi

A pug named Bandito and a cat named Luigi have taken social media by storm. These companions,with over 25,000 followers across Facebook and Instragram, have walked 1500km across Spain with their humans, who purchased them a doggy stroller specifically for their travels.

Partners Finn and Sebastian let the pair become accustomed to the stroller at home for weeks before venturing out.  Eventually they walked the 497 mile Camino de Santiago trail together, a trip that took six weeks.

The stroller is a safe haven for Bandito and Luigi who use it as a resting place or a place to go when they are scared.

According to co-owner, Sebastian, Bandito and Luigi are the best of friends but he cautions that this style of travel would not suit all pets.

“It is easy if you act like it is their holiday but not if you overestimate your pet’s abilities.  We have had to be vigilant at all times. Inner cities are not ideal places, but fortunately we are in the countryside the vast majority [of time]. Because of this we can really enjoy our time together like climbing trees with the cat and running around with the pug.”   

I particularly like the style of stroller chosen for Bandito and Luigi.  It reminds me of the Pope Mobile used by Handsome Dan, the Vicktory dog featured in the documentary film The Champions.
