    Default Vacation???

    Just a random question... Hubby and I would like to go in vacation... Somewhere not in driving distance. Before we moved to SoCal, my mama loved to sit for us, now were so untrusting, due to many bullies being stolen... Who watches your baby when you go? Family? Friends? Boarding? Who do you trust with your bully?

    We are fortunate enough to have a very good dog sitter that will come to our home and feed and let them out fir us when we are gone.

    We had to board Geno when we went to Vegas. Make sure you do research and find a good reputable place.

    We are very fortunate and have family that watches Koozer most of the times. However, there have been a couple of occasions, of an emergent nature due to our jobs, that we have boarded Koozer. We use his daycare facility, which is fabulous and VERY knowledgeable about bullies. They even have a person stay overnight in the facility with the dogs in case something happens. Anyhoo, the place we use is (get ready to laugh) The Bone Adventure, in Costa Mesa. Bottom line though, no matter who is watching my baby, I still stress

    While I have some close friends that would watch Harlea for us we just choose to not go anywhere where we can't take her with us.

    If they can not go with us, we have family stay at the house with them. I know that does not help, but maybe a friend in the area that would come stay at your place?

    I have yet to take an extended vacation b/c I don't know what to do with my two babies. Next year I'm planning to go out of the country for a couple weeks so I'm rather frantic myself right now trying to figure out what to do. @Gfitz911, I'm going to have to check out The Bone Adventure as I'm also from So Cal.

    We've left Charley at two different kennels. He came back from the really nice one that prescreened dogs with infected folds on his face. It was warm weather, he'd played outside, drank a bunch of water and they didn't dry off his face. After about 4 days they took him to the vet. The other kennel was no frills, but the owner gave him awesome care. Still we hated leaving him. Next vacation, we took him with us, but could never really relax. We couldn't both get out of the car and leave him alone nor could we leave him alone in hotel rooms, so we ate way too much fast food. I think next time I'll get a house sitter who is used to caring for dogs. There are a few in our neighborhood. Not easy!

    Vacation these days means me getting time off work to be home with the boys. We'll do a local day trip here and there, go on lots of hikes, check out parks, etc…but, I haven't been on an airplane since…geez, I can't even remember!!?! But, seriously, I'm totally OKAY with that b/c any time not at the office where I get to cuddle with those two rascals equals paradise for me.
