Yes, these little furry members of our family are tuned in to our emotions. I sometimes think they know even before we do. At least two dogs and/or cats have been a part of my 76 years. I can't imagine ever being without them.

Lupe, our border collie, has never been left behind on a trailer trip, and I'm sure it would never occur to her that she ever would be left behind when we go somewhere with the trailer. So she's always pretty calm (for a border collie) while we're loading the trailer.

It's different when I head out the door to go somewhere in the truck. This time of year, it's too hot to leave her in the truck while I shop, etc., and she seems to understand if I tell her that it's just too hot and I'll be back pretty soon. She knows, though, that if I'm packing a bag and the trailer isn't involved, that I'm not going to be back "pretty soon," and that's when she won't make eye contact and looks away at the wall. Always making eye contact is a really big deal for a border collie, and when she won't make eye contact, it's a really big deal in the wrong direction.

The cats we have traveled with have been house cats. No sense of adventure or roaming. They travel similar to dogs- looking out the window- curious- nosy-
They spend some time in the Pet Taxi and some time on the center console and some time in my wife's lap and some time lying on the floor under the back seat.
One silly cat rode on the dashboard.
When we get to camp, we take them in the trailer and they lie around like they own the joint (I reckon they do own the joint).
One liked to get under the covers. The other curled up in the drawer under the couch.
Both like to sit on the back of the couch and look out the window. Both like to sit on the hump in the bedroom wall that basically covers the end of the water heater.
Both like to hang out under the dinette.

Everyone Loves Chocolate

You are absolutely right about them knowing! Our chocolate lab loves a road trip. Any time he sees the AS in the drive being loaded he knows we are off for another adventure. I couldn't imagine going without him. I just wish the National Parks weren't so restrictive - he is very active and loves to go for a hike. He's been to the top of Columbia River Gorge at Multnomah Falls (a lot easier than we made it up the trail).

Trips, illness, anger, sadness you name it they've got us pegged to a T.

Enjoy them, dogs are the best.
Yup, our standard poodle reacts the same.
