Crazy Dog Ladies (Please Post)

My name is Linda, and today I found out that I am a real Hav Mommy who doesn't like to leave their Havs!

Decided to take a short vacation with dh, so I had to leave Dexter in a kennel for 2 1/2 days. I hated leaving Dexter! I hated it! I hated it! I see a time coming real soon when Dexter either goes with me, or I do not go on vacation.

Am I being unreasonable or am I over the edge?

When we do our annual vacation to the beach, we always try to find pet friendly homes to rent so we can take our little beasties with us. If we can't, we have an awesome pet sitter who comes over, but we still miss them!

Since first bringing Riley & Monte home we have only left them once for 2 nights, I felt just like you Linda I hated leaving them. We now usually book our vacation's to places they can go with us, we have even flown them with us to Indiana.

I hate hate vacations without them :0(. when we have to go without them they stay at my mom's home so I know they will be spoiled and loved. We go on at least two "family trips" in the summer with them. :0) that my favorite vactaions.

Hugs and have a Hava day!

I wouldn't be comfortable with leaving Roscoe with anyone other that my mom, who lives 3500 miles away! So yeah, I don't think I'll be going anywhere without him anytime soon. I'm SO overprotective. I just met a lady at the dog park yesterday who went out of town and left her dog with her parents - they left the door open by accident, dog escaped, they didn't notice for TWO HOURS, and he was lost for over two days in the woods. After that story, HELL NO am I leaving Roscoe with anyone!! eeeek! I am one overprotective mommy!

I camp...A lot..lol It's the easiest way that I've found to make sure that Todd is included. I hate to leave him at home..it feels like part of me is missing if he's not there

I have a slightly different bent on this. Yes, we can't stand to leave them, both because we miss them and also because, we don't really trust anyone to take them. But at the same time, I really miss traveling further than we can take them... so at times, only for a moment, I am resentful that my CDL-ness (my DH's too) has made me resent them. It would be much healthier for all of us if we could come to terms with leaving them.

We're taking Kipling with us over March break to a pet friendly hotel. We're excited about it but I must say I also enjoy a week away with no pet responsibilities. In those times we have several really good alternatives for his care. We never kennel. And we do miss him. I think it's good to miss each other sometimes.

Since we got the pups (4 yrs ago) we have made all vacation plans with them in mind. If't is just a short overnighter or maybe a long weekend where we have concert tickets, etc., I'm lucky to have my Mom or DD take care of them.
