    At least he's got the others to help burn off some of that puppy energy.

    For some reason I thought you were only taking Duke.

    No, I took duke and moe,and my husband took sadie . We can't fit all 3 dogs in one truck with all the stuff we brought, and my husband and sadie came down a week before I did. He had to put up a temporary fence for the dogs.

    It was just the way you said it, like because Duke was still so young no way could he be left home with the others without constant supervision.

    He did the 8 hour trip good too . I was very surprised. It was his first long car ride. This was moe's 2nd 8 hr trip.

    Give them a bed and they can do pretty well. Most of the time.

    That is a surprise. Did they end up sitting more at window level during the travel?

    Although that made no difference with one of mine. He always barfed but that didn't stop him from enjoying the ride.

    If they sat up they were window level,laying down they could see out the window. I had the windows down the whole ride lol and froze with the heat blasting on me. When I shut the windows they got antsy, but open they relaxed more. Normally duke gets sick and pukes if he is by himself. With moe or sadie with him he reacts better.
    We are leaving Saturday to come home and I'm hoping they both do good.i also won't feed them that morning and the night before they will get a very light dinner. On the potty stops I give them both a few drops of Rescue Remedy and it helps to take the edge off a bit too

    I usually had a window lowered part way but mine still barfed. My others were not so great about riding and didn't want to look out of the windows because something was going to get them.

    He's growing up. I wonder how he's going to be going for a ride without one of the others now.
