Travel Tips for a Smooth Sailing Trip

Maxy and I just finished our daylong trek from sunny California to the frigid Midwest. We left home at about 4am and Max slept through the long lines at the airport. During our layover he mad a little buddy Abby the Schnauzer, who was also headed to Kansas City.

Max just just loves stealing the attention when he prances off the airplane! After we landed he finally got to play with his sisters on the farm. Maxy is definitely ready for Christmas... atleast the turkey!

A fellow blogger, Amy Quinn, just shared a faboulous article with me that I thought I would pass on to all of you traveling with your furry little companion this holiday! The article is entitled, "Traveling With Man’s Best Friend: 20 Tips for a Dog-Friendly Vacation" and includes some really great information, such as:

Make sure your dog’s collar and tags are secure: Before leaving on your trip, make sure your dog’s collar fits properly and its tags are up to date with your current phone number and rabies information. Adding your cell phone number to the dog’s tag is also a good idea if Rover runs away during the trip, since you won’t be at home to receive any calls.

Don’t forget to pack food: Even if you’re going to a place with supermarkets that carry your dog’s brand of food, fill a large Ziploc bag with a day’s worth of food in case travel delays or an exhausting trip mean you can’t get to the store on time.

See all 20 great trips at the TravelHacker article!

Don't tell Max, but he is getting a new tote for shopping trips this Christmas :)
Hope you all have a very Merry Chistmas and a fabulous New Year!
