My work doesn't allow me dogs but I can't wait to have a travelling companion, and all the troubles that go along with them!

It takes a special person to handle four legged companions. I am not one of them. :/

My Siberian Husky used sit in the driver's seat when I went in to pick up supplies - it made for some funny pictures. You get used to it and don't even notice the nose prints after a while. Really, it's no different than all the hand prints, slobbery finger marks, stickers, crayons, etc. that kids apply to windows of your average soccer-mom-mobile...

I wouldn't trade my fur babies for anything. They have helped tremendously with "empty nest" syndrome. We have two shihtzu's and they go most places we go. Even work but we own our own business which makes that possible. They don't shed and are very well mannered. They are spoiled little dogs and we love them!

Our Fred has done it again this trip...he's fallen in love...but this time it's TWO cute little white girl poodles. He whimpers like a little puppy every time I take him for a walk by their campsites.

One of these days I'll manage to get a good pic of him to post the meantime imagine a standard sized doxy with an Irish Setter coat.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

F250 Super Duty 2013 Tuxedo Black "Biff"

We travel with our 5# Yorkie (Presley) and our 65# Boxer (Kelsey). Presley does not shed and gets groomed once a month. Kelsey does shed some and gets a bath twice a month. Presley rules the roost doing what he wants when he wants. Kelsey knows her place and sleeps on her dog bed. DW vacuums furniture and floors every other day when we are in the RV. We started RVing seven years ago to be able to take our pets with us. Now we RV because we love it and our able to enjoy our pets along with the RV

Never mind the dogs on the dashboard. What about the heat inthere? The owner should be closed inthere and left without water for half a day. We had few morons here do that to dogs. Last year a two year old boy died from heat while waiting for his "mommy". Dumb Mother&uckers

I have a lab who is 11 yrs old. My daughters talked me into fostering. The last foster turned out to be pregnant and delivered a litter of 5. So I had 7 dogs in my house for several months. Dear youngest daughter talked me into keeping one of the puppies. Now I'm what you call a foster failure. Thankfully both are excellent running partners which helps to keep me sane with 15 yr old and 20 yr old daughters.

We have travelled many miles with our boxer. He's 11 1/2 today and won't make it to Canadian spring for another trip but I'd take his shedding and nose prints over whining crying kids any day. He's never talked back, borrowed the car or asked for a loan.
