Valentin does come with me. I have found a pet friendly hotel that welcomes us :-) I put the Home Shopping channel on the TV for him (no commericals with dogs or cats for him to bark at) while I am at work during the day and come back to the hotel at lunch to walk him.
I have nicknamed my van "Noah's Ark" (although I don't have two of everyone). Valentin travels in his crate and I have the space to crate three more smaller beasties and one big one.
We brought Cali the cat with us as well as Zeus the Dane and the two dogs from Quinte HS.
So if anyone needs a transport, we are avail
(Sorry about your doxie - I have been thinking of adopting one of the special needs paralized doxies) It is so hard to lose our furbabies
Love me, love my dogs
