I drove from Florida Keys to Michigan a couple years ago with Raina. I rented a van so she had lots of room for a pad to sleep on and I could take her crate and coolers and everything I needed. It is going to be a bit more crowded for you but I would suggest piling up stuff on the floor to make it even with the back seat and have more room for her to stretch out. I traveled three 9 hour days on the way up and she slept most of the time but we were on a short schedule and had to be there on a certain day. On the way back we traveled only 6 hours a day and took out time to explore every place we stopped. I always take water from home when traveling and when that runs out use bottled water to avoid upset stomachs. I also always take canned pumpkin when I travel, along with Pepto Bismol, and Benedryl. Be sure to take your dogs records and make sure the microchip info includes your cell phone so just in case anything happens they can reach you. If you don't have her chipped take along some really good pictures of her so if she gets lost you can post pictures in the area. Always fasten the leash before opening the door and give her a potty break at least every two hours or so. It also gets you out and gives you a chance to stretch and stay alert. I take antlers for chewing in the car as they never make a mess. Mostly, have fun and enjoy all the new places and smells with her.
