Petey and Belle's First Trip Together :)

I'm back from vacation! We didn't go anywhere too exciting this year, but drove around Michigan, spending some time on Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, visiting relatives, and visiting Mackinaw Island. I took over 400 pics, most of the dogs of course! :) I couldn't decide which ones to post, so I'll have to post in two parts. :) So here are a few pics from the first half of the trip. The first two days were spent driving 18 hours. I met my parents and sister in Duluth, about two hours from my house and we all rode together in my parent's old van. Very comfortable! The dogs got the back bench. :) My Mom covered it with an old sheet to try to keep the fur contained, but we kind of gave up at the end. ;)

We just got back tonight, so I wanted to post them while I'm still sort of awake. I'll get caught on everyone else's threads tomorrow! It's good to be back! :)

First off, bored doggies find themselves in all sorts of amusing positions to sleep in during a long, lazy drive. :)

Those pics are gorgeous! Petey and Belle look like they had a blast. I especially like the 2nd last one of them posing in the cut outs. Cheesy but hilarious! :laughing:

:laughing: My sister gets credit for that one. :) The cutouts were too high for them, so I'm holding up Belle and my Dad is holding up Petey. :) We saw it driving by one of those cheesy tourist traps and couldn't resist. :laughing:

They are so cute together in the car! :cloud9: I love Petey draped over the seat! And along the beach! Love the wave action behind Belle--and Petey looking so serenely over his beach! :D

Did Belle get any...er...intestinal distress from the apple? :o I'll bet it was fun for her to bite! Is she teething, yet? One thing is certain--she's cute as the dickens! :lovestruck: he he However cute that may be...what the heck is a dickens, anyway?! :laughing:

Petey is obsessed about leaning on things for some reason. Silly dog! :rolleyes: He loves to lean on chairs, lean over the car seat, like in that pic, and lean on people. :laughing:

I didn't let Belle eat the whole apple, so she was just fine. :) I gave most of it to Petey after letting her play with it for a while and taste it and eat a few yummy bites. I was afraid of what it might do to her too otherwise. But boy did she love that thing! Great way to keep her occupied for a long while because she doesn't have the jaw strength quite yet to bite into it like Petey does. She's teething for sure! Ice cubes, frozen washclothes all twisted up, and nylabones have been working great. :thumbs up

LOL! We actually bought that the day it was cold and rainy as I had nothing for either dog and couldn't get them outside in the pouring rain. At IGA, we found those glamorous ponchos for ourselves and the pink thing for Belle at the only pet store in town. They had nothing for big dogs though, so we tied a plastic poncho around Petey as well. LOL! No pics of that one though as it was outside in the rain and couldn't bring out the camera. It was pretty pathetic looking though. :) So anyway, because of that, Belle now has a pink raincoat to add to her collection. :)

It's so much fun to get to come along on vacation with all these great dogs! Sometimes the pictures are just like being there. Petey and Belle are so sweet. That's quite the luxury van for them! :D
Any troubles with traveling with the pack? Hotels, etc?
