This thread is pretty interesting. What do you do if you are traveling into areas that require AC? That has been the reason we have held back on taking our current pups with us.

We have generators but feel kind of concerned about leaving the pups in the trailer with the generators supplying AC if we want to go for a hike in areas that don't allow pups on trail etc...

What do y'all do?

Thanks for this thread - although it may result in us getting another gentle giant.
I am now unsure if we will ever be without a gentle giant. They are just the sweetest love bugs around!! There is always a Dane in need of a home, and they just give so much love, not to encourage you.....

We travel with five cats (four boys and one girl). I pay attention to them when we get into a new place. They like grass better than graveled rough surfaces. So I realized they ARE barefooted and not as tough as a dogs pads are. So I would interject here to also pay attention to what the danes are walking on...(hee hee now I can sneak some pictures in here! ha!) Pets are the very BEST remedy for longevity.

First thing is to avoid places that require A/C, that is why we moved north. It's much easier to just put on a sweater. Second is to get your priorities straight. If someplace doesn't want my dog then they probably don't want me either. There are too many places that are happy to have us then worry about those that place restrictions.

This was lunch at the golf coarse at Port Alice, British Columbia, Canada and the ferry ride leaving Victoria.

Cheers, Dan

My 6 year old daughter loved your kitty's pictures this morning! They are so cute!

I think more to the point would be if they don't want my dog there, then I don't want to be there anyway! Heading north during the summer months is a good idea, most years I would love to escape the heat!

Thanks for the encouragement - it doesn't take much with us to hit the tipping piont as you can see from the attached pics. Thought I'd share some photos of Bongo, the dane, Miss Gracie, the mastiff, and their compadre and leader of the pack, Guinness, the std dachshund. Since we lost Bongo and Gracie, we've added Henley, the clumber spaniel to our "pack"...

We miss the big guys though. For the Texans in the crowd, the Gracie "hook 'em horns" photo was taken when UT/USC were in the Rose Bowl - sent to my brother and sister-in-law who are big SC fans. [Just had to have some fun with them..]

Enjoy.

I don't know much about mastiffs or the fuzzy little guy but Bongo was truly a handsome gentle giant.

Cheers, Dan

OH MY!! That is cute, adorable, lovable over load!! All those sweet faces! Almost makes me want to add to my pack... almost. My husband and kids will like the "hook'em horns" photo!

Glad you like the photos! We think they are cute but then we are biased.

Carter just wants to be a lap dog!!

Yes we just took Carter on his first AS camping trip. He loved ever minute of it. We had him sleep on the living room floor and he did just fine. All though we did not leave him alone in AS because he is only 6mo. and very into chewing.

I have a 85# lab puppy, and he goes everywhere. I wouldn't go anywhere without him. I know people who say if you have 1 good woman and 1 good dog in your life you have had a great life. I'm hoping for 2 good dogs! LOL The pup isn't allowed to stay in the cab of the truck any more as he chewed up $420.00 of seat belts, but that is just puppy. My advice, take the dog.
