5 thoughts on “On the Road with your Dog

  1. OMG! I LITERALLY just got off the phone with my daughter trying to figure out what to do with our new yorkie as we plan to leave for our family vacation…..we want to take her but don’t have a clue of what to do…and this post is the answer to all our problems! lol Thank you so much! You Rock!!

  2. We learned by doing, but we did our homework first. We drove from North Texas to Las Vegas with our Lab and our diabetic cat. We paid $75.00 to $100.00 non-refundable hotel deposits to have our pets stay with us in transit. My worst nightmare occurred when we placed our Lab in a pet hotel upon arrival (our daughter and son-in-law were allowed to have a cat at their condo, but no dogs over a certain weight). We stayed one Christmas and were unable to visit our dog on Christmas Day, because the facility (large pet store/hotel), was not open to customers (they did have staffing personnel at the hotel section). The day after Christmas we arrived to find a very frightened doggie. BTW, other animals seemed happy and content, but our girl was overwhelmed! We checked her out and violated the condo rules for two days.

    As I write this, I’m suffering homesickness. My niece is eight months pregnant, has two young children, and is a week away from moving from one state to another. Her hubby is a basketball coach and is relocated to their new assignment. I have never felt so torn. I’m needed, and I want to be here to assist, but my doggie and I are lost without each other. (She’s in good hands, dad and sis are with her.)

    Why am I telling you my tale of woe on this kind and uplifting blog? Because I feel guilty that I can’t be in two places at one time. Neither can you. Take this gentleman’s advice. Think ‘outside’ that box and place your trust in Him.

    Thank you for reading my jibber-jabber. Safe and happy travels to all!
