Traveling With Alex, Our Canine Companion


Alex, "Are we going on a trip?  Yay!"

Alex, “Are we going on a trip? Yay!”

Alex loves to go on trips.  Being that Summer is right around the corner, you are probably ready to travel with your canine companion just like us.  There are a lot of things you’d need to do to prepare for a trip with your furry kid such as: treats, food, poop bags, wipes, water, bed, etc.  To be honest, Alex’s bag is usually better packed than ours. Also, if your dog is young, make sure that you take her for a nice long walk or run prior to your trip in order for her to be tired and sleep most of the way.

Alex, "Mom, what are you doing?  Stop it."

Alex, “Mom, what are you doing? Stop it.  I think I just saw a real cute GSD.  Put that camera away.  You are going to scare him.”

There have been times when we had to stay in a hotel, and the first thing Alex likes to do is smell the entire room and check out what is going on by going to the windows.  At this point, I take her for a short walk which gives her an opportunity to do her “business” and stretch her legs.

Alex, "Mom, stop taking pictures.  We want to go to sleep."

Alex, “Mom, stop taking pictures. We want to go to sleep.”

After Alex made her usual inspection of the room, we were all ready to go to bed.  Well, I guess Cynthia was not ready since she kept taking pictures.

Well, my girls and I will soon be on another one of our many trips.  For those that are traveling, please drive safely and under no circumstance leave your dog inside your car.  Have a great weekend.
