Just got back from a business trip to Huntsville. We took Rosie and that is the first time in two years that she has gone with us to a hotel or been on a leash for that matter. Course I had to sedate her for the riding in the car, but she was perfect in the hotel. We had two bedrooms and living area, so were able to invite my daughter Sherron and her family over to watch the finale of the closer. But the point of my ramblings is that Rosie walked perfectly on the lease like she wore a harness and leash every day. She did not have any accidents in the hotel and did not whine or cry when we left the room. She seemed to know that as long as the suitcases were there, we would be back. Because when we started packing she went and sat by the door and we couldn't have left her if we wanted to. Course the downside of traveling with a dog is no stopping at the antique shops or eating anything but to go food. Last night she was following DH and he said that I just might as well get my own dog because she had become his. Knowing he didn't mean it, I said quickly that Becky had puppies and we could go get one this weekend. He backtracked immediately and said that he had been delirious if that came out of his mouth. Sure wish that he had meant it though. Enough bragging.

Suzi I could if I wanted to. Larry has never denied me anything. But we are both tired and worn out. He has to take care of me more than any man should. And he takes Rosie out at night so I don't have to climb the stairs more than necessaryl. He has taken over feeding and watering the chickens, mowing the yard (all used to be my job and I loved doing them). Therefore, there is no way in the world that I would put another burden on him.

Lucile, What fun!!! Back when Misty was my very shy girl, I took her as many places as possible...You can still take Rosie to the Antique malls, I do it (all they can do is ask you to leave) I affect the manner that the rules do not apply to me--you know are you adressing me--basic I do it and I have never been ask to leave...they want my money. I always hold her like a purse puppy (usually no purse, too heavy) same with Khloe. They do not sell food, I think they are worried about the big dog people and ill mannered dogs. Next time just go in and yes if there's a sign, I ignore it.

I agree with Robbie! Actually, there have been a number of places where we have ASKED if Kodi can come in, and when they see that he is small, friendly and well mannered, they invite him right in. As far as eating is concerned, there are lots of places with outdoor seating that allow well mannered dogs. Those are the ones we choose!

There was one scare. I took her in Petsmart and was looking at shampoos, etc. Rosie was sitting at my feet. I had heard a big dog bark but paid no attention. It wasn't in my aisle. Then this rude young woman said behind me in a loud voice,"lady are you watching your dog?" Well my first instinct was to look down at Rosie to make sure she was where I thought she was and then this massive white head came around my feet and sniffed. I first thought bear--then pyrenees. Rosie just looked at him, didn't cower or anything. He sniffed her then walked off. All this happened in the blink of an eye. Before I could say anything to the rude woman, they were around the corner of the aisle. Made me know I am losing it. In my younger days, I would have ran after her and the giant dog and given her a piece of my mind. That dog could have eaten Rosie. Aand why was she asking if I was watching my dog when her dog should not have been near Rosie? Well pyrenees are gentle giants as a rule and Rosie just doesn't have a mean bone in her body. Now either one of my schnauzers would have snarled at the pyrenees and could have gotten hurt. Anyway, everywhere we went people stopped me and asked about Rosie and wanted to touch her, especially little kids.

So happy all went well. It's always a bit nerve-wracking when you are somewhere new and not sure how they'll react. Well, at least for me it is - I worry about these things.

Yay Rosie. What a trooper!

I know you were very proud of Rosie and I would be too. Perhaps if you are able to take her more ofter the car sickness would go away. My first, SOX, was like Rosie. I'd have to clean her up for every dog show. After a bunch of long trips she finally quit getting car sick. As far as your "own" dog?????

Lucile may I ask what you use to sedate rosie for car trips? Panda loves to go, and while she doesn't get sick, she is a maniac for the 1st 30 min. or so. Even in her car seat she whines, talks, barks and generally makes a nusiance of herself. It takes her forever to calm down, usually about the time we get home.... While I don't want to totally put her to sleep it might be nice to have something to help her calm down a little...
