    @Angievelvet seriously, please don't feel bad! I certainly wasn't trying to do that. I just wanted to let you know that it CAN work and offer some possible solutions. You know...if you try only driving at night, everyone can sleep, including Violet. She would be a lot less active then. Everyone can sleep except for the driver and you can stop at a hotel (there are LOTS that allow pets with little or no fee, pm me when the time comes and I can help you with that) during the day and the non-driver can take the kids to the park, etc and walk Violet a lot while the driver sleeps and everyone can nap too. At any rate, you do still have some time. A solution WILL be found even if it is finding a foster for a bit...but then you would still have to drive back to pick her up .

    Oh, and I wanted to add that you could try driving on your own without the other adult and he can fly. I have done 2 and 3 day trips on my own with six kids and pets. It SUCKS, but it might be a solution....

    Ok, I have sent you my phone number. I do have concerns and perhaps the forum members have ideas. My Bully is a full grown female that is not fixed, she is at about 47 lbs. I am concerned how she would react to another baby in the house as she truly thinks she is the center of the world. I am not concerned about things being chewed we deal with that well. Our Couches are going to be replaced and we can wait on that, when Bubbles was a pup she chewed on them. Four months is a long time and I am concerned about how much time you will be missing with your Baby and how much we will be bonding. I am scheduled to have major surgery in either January or February depending on pre-op prep. Yes we have lots of help @ home Myself, my Hubby and a Twenty year old son. I just want to lay it all out on the table so you know our situation. I have already discussed this with my husband and we are willing to help, the concern is the length of time.

    @Angievelvet..I have a pop up kennel that folds totally flat..like those windshield shades you see. It held my daughters huge golden..if you decide to take her I will send it to you. She could sleep in it when not in car and won't be in your way..come to think of it..having raised 2 daughters..you might want to use it for your ten year old!! we traveled 2200 miles in a blazer..with 2 dobermans..2 kids..one 8 months old..and a screaming cocktateil! It left a lasting impression on us..but we did it!! While you explore all your options..keep at the top the one that keeps your family together..4 legged and 2!!! We will keep our thinking caps on!

    I think you have plenty of time to figure this out, and yes your bully will or should have some better manners while you continue to train.

    I do agree with @Terry that 4 months is quite a long time, I know it would take me just a day or less to bond and want to keep the bully forever! Especially if their current girl bonds with her it will make her sad to see her go. Both you and @Terry need to put in writing whatever you choose, to protect each other.

    But if it were me, the bully would be side saddle and snoring on my lap the whole way, no matter how uncomfortable it would make me, or how hot I would get, I would just have to sacrifice and deal with it. We have driven 10,000 miles in the last 10 years and bullies were with us the whole time. Once my lap even got peed on!

    You could talk to your vet about getting a mild sedative for Violet to help calm her while you are traveling. Riding on Hubby's lap sounds like a good option, after all, Bulldogs are born to be lap dogs!
