I love my trips away from my dogs. I even have reserved clothing to wear! However, I found that two weeks away is too long. I went to Germany and missed my dogs terribly.
Best trip ever was to New York. We flew into Newark, rented a car and drove upstate to visit our breeder, stayed in Saratoga Springs then went to Mohonk Mountain House and ended in Manhattan with my niece.
I always have someone stay in my house with the dogs. I'm fortunate enough to have a retired friend for days and my son for overnights.
