Road Trip

11 days.

2200 miles.

32 hours in the car.

2 different hotels.

2 different houses.

A little crazy.

A lot of family time.

Oh, and a couple of cats, too!

Dante came on his second big trip with my family.  We went up North to visit family.  We spent four total days driving, two of which were twelve-hours each.  I have said it before, and I will say it again: this dog is an awesome traveler!  It was a great trip for Dante because he had a ton of new experiences: new places to stay, new people, new stores, new animals to live with.  It could have been very overwhelming, but Dante did great.

On the way up, we stopped at Cabella's (outdoors store).  In the past, Dante has had trouble with taxidermy (barking at them in a museum, oops!), but this place was taxidermy heaven, and not a peep was heard!  Yay!

While we were there, there was lots of time with family and friends, lots of outings to new places, and lots of exploring my grandparent's farm and long walks.

Just a fraction of the damage that Sandy caused.

"Please let me go swimming!"

On the way home, we stopped in Nashville where we explored the replicated Parthenon.  I will admit that I was worried about Dante's behavior in a museum as we had been in the car for thirteen hours the day before, but he was very good, and no tantrums were had.  I do have to give him credit for saving his worst moments for the privacy of home.  ;-)

Totally oblivious - at least Dante is aware of these things :-)
