The Dulebohns

Exploring Life With Two Labs
Story By rica LewiS

Sniff, eat, sleep and repeat. This is a dog's life. And if you
are a travel-loving Labrador, you have it made in the Dulebohn household.
Meet Kenichi and Sakai, a pair of charming retrievers.
Always ready for adventure, the carefree canines love road
trips in the family RV. Their human parents - Jim and Monique Dulebohn, of the Village of Lake Deaton - are happy
to tag along, too. But clearing their calendar for travel was
not always easy.
"When we moved to The Villages five years ago, I was
still working," Jim said. "It was torture."
Jim's career in the financial industry allowed him to telecommute during West Coast business hours.
"I'd play a round of golf in the morning and then start
my work day," Jim said.
But it became increasingly harder for Jim to buckle down
behind a desk when the active community was whirling
about in the sunshine.
"From my window, I could see Villagers go by in golf
carts and on bicycles," he said. "I planned to work another
few years, but I was ready to let it go. So we figured out a
way to make it work financially and I retired early."
Welcome to life off the leash, Kenichi and Sakai seemed
to prod.
"We're free to travel now without a schedule," Monique

said. "When you lose track of the days, you know you're officially in retirement mode."
The outdoor enthusiasts enjoy camping and exploring
wildlife and the wonders of nature.
"We just returned from Acadia National Park," Jim said.
"We lived our entire lives in the West and so we want to tour
around the East Coast and the Midwest now. We're just getting started."
Of course, their canine companions have no qualms.
Kenichi and Sakai are eager to sniff new ground.
"They absolutely adore traveling," Monique said. "They
discover new places with us."
But traveling requires some packing, and Sakai has his
own list of must-haves.
"He insists on carrying a stuffed baby with him wherever
we go," Monique said.
His collection of toys includes sheep, bears, bunnies and
all manner of plush playthings.
"People stop us and ask to take his picture," Monique
said. "We have met our whole neighborhood this way. He's
made us quite popular in The Villages."
With stuffed babies in tow, Sakai and the clan will head
to South Carolina soon.
"We plan to stay for a week ... but who knows?" Monique
said.
