My husband and I recently took a few days off for an anniversary trip, after much debate we decided that the puppies would be happier staying home and having their grandma come and take care of them. As the day we were to leave got closer and closer the more anxious I became about leaving them at home. Sure, Ive left them before and the same thing happened to me each time.. and it never gets easier. I start really dreading having to leave them and say goodbye, even if only for a short period of time.

We were only gone a total of about 3 days. By the end of the first day I missed my puppies so much, that I had to call and "talk" to them on the phone. During our trip every time I saw a dog, a pet store, anything about dogs I found myself talking about them and missing them. By the end of the 3rd day I was so ready to come home and see my puppies, I had missed them more than anything else, even missed them more than my own bed!

We have taken trips both with and without the dogs, each way has its own benefits and drawbacks. The whole thing got me thinking.. what do other dog owners do when they travel? Pet sitter, boarding, or do you plan pet friendly trips? Share your solutions with us.. what works best for you?
