    Default Rook's First Road Trip!

    We took a long weekend, and headed to Toronto to spend time with family. Everyone was excited to meet Rook, so of course he came too!
    Rook had only taken about five or six short car rides prior to our trip, but as soon as we pulled up with the rental car he couldn't get in fast enough.

    Hitting the road (lucky me to be stuck in the car with these two nuts.)

    Stretching our legs at a rest stop.


    We arrived in Toronto 7 hours later, and Rook quickly befriended Adam's cousin Nicholas. Who knew that an 11 year old boy and an 11 month old puppy have the exact same energy level?!? Needless to say, they were inseparable and got each other into lots of trouble. It was great to see how gentle Rook is with kids since we didn't have many opportunities to socialize him with children when he was a puppy. He did great with Nicholas and all of the other kids he met in the neighborhood, sitting patiently so that he could get lots of attention from his new friends. It didn't take long before everyone on the street knew who Rook was, and ran out to greet him when we took him for walks.

    We made the trek back home yesterday, and Rook is completely tuckered out.
    He slept almost the entire way home, and then had to rest some more.

    I think he definitely enjoyed his vacation!

    I totally agree!. Especially the Margherita part Dublin has been a "travelling bully" from day one. Next trip in a few weeks from FL to NY to take my youngest to college. I know she will do so much better than I will with that trek

    You guys sound like you had a wonderful time while visiting your family for the weekend. Rook looks like a great traveling companion and seems to have had a blast! Great photos!

    We're taking Kaida on her first extended road trip to visit my family in CT this weekend. Wish us luck! The longest car ride she's been on was 1.5 hours. She slept most of the way in her seatbelt harness in the back seat all cuddled up with her blanket and toys.

    Gotta love our bully's. Rook is a handsome fella!

    Good luck! Hopefully she'll sleep for you up to CT. Rook was a crazy man on our way to Toronto. He was harnessed in, but he was so pumped that I don't think he sat still, always had to know what was going on.
    My in-laws looked at me like I was crazy when we arrived - I had packed more stuff for Rook than for ourselves... Food, toys, blankets, baby wipes, all the lotions and potions for keeping that face and skin so handsome, and canned pumpkin just in case. They were like, He's just a dog... But I'm pretty sure they realized he's more than that by the end of our stay.
    Hope you have a great trip too!
