This morning me, my wife, our youngest child, and his cousin (both 12) Rosko just over a year old. and Athena 12ish weeks old. headed off for vacation. I was a bit nervous taking the dogs on a 9 hour plus car ride but honestly I think they were better than the 12 yr old boys. They mostly slept, some play. We stopped every couple hours at random church parking lots so the dogs could use the bathroom. The vet said he doesn't recommend rest stops yet with such a young pup. now to relax in the mountains for a week.
