These Dogs Took A Trip Around The World Without Even Leaving Their Front Yard

By: Lisa Lee | Published: Dec 19, 2022

These past few years have made traveling difficult, expensive, and more restrictive than ever. Hence, it is no surprise that some people got creative to find their way around regulations. 

Melissa, a photographer and dog lover from the United States, used the magic of Photoshop to create some masterpieces with a beautiful cause behind them: to break stereotypes about Pitbulls and promote their gentle nature. 

Bella Goes To Australia 

Bella Blue was seen in the Land Down Under, in front of one of its most recognizable and amazing views. Uluru, or Site Ayers Rock, is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is a sandstone rock formation that is taller than the Eiffel Tower!

In reality, Pitbulls aren’t very resistant to the cold, and if anyone wants to take their pup to a colder environment, they should make sure to pack a good jacket for them. 

Pesto Explores The North Pole

Pesto made it where no Pitbull has made it before! The north pole, the tip of the earth! Luckily for him, he seems to have brought his favorite blanket with him.

Pitbulls get a bad reputation for their past in dog fighting, so there has been a big movement trying to revoke the controversy around them. It’s been successful in some places, and the awareness campaigns have proved very beneficial. Look at little Pesto. He wouldn’t hurt a fly!

The Pups Go To Mount Rushmore

It seems like the puppies decided to travel around their own country and headed to South Dakota. They clearly wanted to reproduce the sculpture, showing off their funny tongue-sticking skills.

Mount Rushmore is a sculpture carved into The Black Hills. It portrays 4 U.S. Presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. The site is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the United States, and for a good reason; look at how majestic the sculptures are! 

Bella With The Roos

Those kangaroos, that orange-red hue, and Bella’s silhouette are the definition of our happy place. This romantic sunset picture would look fantastic printed in large format, and we’re sure Bella would approve.

Australia is known for being home to many wonderful animals, from kangaroos to wombats to dingos and, of course, koalas. The diverse wildlife is one of the main tourist attractions of the country because wherever animals thrive, a beautiful landscape is to follow.

The Louvre is the biggest museum in the world and home of some of the most famous paintings in history. This museum is in the heart of Paris, and it attracts over 2 million visitors a year, and of course, one of them was Hershey the Pitbull.

Hershey seems to be an art lover himself, probably because he has perfected the art of posing for portraits. Just look at that poise. He’s definitely a natural!

After his serious modeling in the hustle and bustle of Paris, Hershey decided to take it easy and enjoy the natural scenarios of an African safari.

Pesto Sunbathes In Joshua Tree

Around the other side of the globe, Pesto seemed to be having some fun in the sun! In the beautiful desert region of Joshua Tree, there are some fantastic sights to take in. The only downside is the high temperatures.

Luckily for Pesto, he made sure to keep hydrated by bringing his own portable shower, very handy when you’re in the middle of the desert. While Pesto camped overnight, he surely met his distant cousins, the coyotes!

Hershey In Paris

Hershey just can’t get enough in the city of love and went back to find more of its architectural masterpieces. No trip to Paris is complete without a picture in front of the Eiffel Tower, and this puppy knows it.

The Eiffel Tower is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites and attracts millions of people from around the globe annually. There are two ways of ascending the tower, by stairs or taking a lift. We hope Hershey chose the latter!

Pesto Swims In The Dead Sea

Pitbulls aren’t naturally good swimmers, but they sure love water! For Pesto here, he might be in luck because the Dead Sea’s salt levels are so high most things float in it, making it easy for him to swim through the clear waters. 

Source: bellareedphotography/Instagram

The Dead Sea isn’t actually a sea but rather a lake, but it’s called a sea because of its high salinity. It is on the border between Jordan and Israel, making it a wonderful place to visit.

Hershey Gets Photobombed

Hershey was so in awe of the architectural delight of the Eiffel Tower that he decided to visit again for a sunset stroll. Unfortunately, his picture didn’t go as planned, he was interrupted by some rude pigeons. 

Source: bellareedphotography/Instagram

Not only that but he was so startled by the flying beasts that he ended up closing his eyes when the snap was taken. This might be just a small misstep in his modeling career, which we’re sure will be fruitful again soon.

Nova Explores More Of Italy

You know what they say, “When in Rome” and Nova knew exactly what to do, take a picture in front of the Colosseum, of course! The magnificent structure was home to the bravest warriors and spectacles of its time.

Nowadays, the Colosseum is a museum and attraction that lures thousands of visitors every year. It was named one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, and we’re sure Nova can tell us why.

Bella In Pisa 

Although the beautiful city of Pisa is known for its iconic tower there is much more to explore than the tower. Located in Tuscany, Pisa is home to a beautiful cathedral, Piazza del Duomo, and many other architectural wonders.

Bella is more interested in exploring the culinary delights the city has to offer. She seems to have only eyes for a slice of pizza that is dangling before her. We would honestly do the same!

Hershey Takes A Trek To Fuji

After so much traveling, Hershey decided to take a relaxed hike to the Japanese volcano Mount Fuji. What a view! The scenery looks straight from a painting, and Hershey looks like he’s blending right in.

Shallow water is most Pitbull’s favorite playground. These dogs love splashing around, even though they’re not great swimmers because of the muscular nature of their bodies. We can see that Bella loves the splashing waves.

Nova Explores Athens

Nova wasn’t feeling as adventurous as her siblings in their mountain quests and beach escapades. Instead, she was interested in delving into the historical importance of Classical Greece.

So she took a flight to Athens and explored the wonderful ruins of the Acropolis.

The citadel is situated on a hill in the city of Athens and is home to the Parthenon and other beautiful sites. Known as the “cradle of western civilization,” this place is full of history.

Nova Continues Her Historical Tour

As a fan of historical sites, Nova couldn’t miss out on visiting the Brandenburg Gate in Germany. This site has been witness to many important moments in world history, so naturally, it would be on this history-geek-puppy’s list.

The gates were built in the 18th century by king Fredrick William II. The gate became a symbol of the division between east and west during the Cold War and, eventually, the country’s reunification.

The needle also has a high-end restaurant which Pesto would certainly enjoy, but he might be too afraid of heights because he opted for admiring the monument from below, which is very understandable!

Located on the northwestern coast of New Zealand, this beach features a rock formation that resembles a cathedral entrance. Its original name is Te Whanganui-A-Hei, which means in Maori “The Great Bay of Hei.”

Also in the southern hemisphere of the world is Bella, taking a deep look at Table Mountain. Located in the heart of South Africa, Table Mountain overlooks Cape Town, one of the most important cities in the country.

At 1,086 meters high, it’s quite the hike, but it’s possible taking a cableway for only 17 dollars and zero physical effort. With that lovely flower headpiece, we hope Bella considers the ride instead of the hike.

Bella Reflects In India

After so many adventures, Bella needed some time to slow down and reflect on her travels, but she decided to do so in a beautiful monument: The Gateway of India. She sure looks pensive in this photo after a rainy day in the Indian city of Bombay.

However, the rich history of this building is also a reason she was attracted to this place; it was built in 1913 to commemorate King George V and Queen Mary.

Nova Sails In Lake Braies

It is no secret that Nova loves boat rides. After the gondolas in Venice, she simply had to go back to Italy to experience the beauty of the “Pearl of the Alps.” And she was not disappointed!

Nova Eats In Italy

Nova couldn’t be happier to end her journey by eating the most instantly recognizable dish in the world: Pizza! There’s nothing like Italian pizza, the food is a staple of the country’s cuisine, and its good reputation is recognized by old and young everywhere.
