Travelling With Dogs

When you're out and about this summer, and have your dog with you, remember to put this one thing in your car:

A small plastic container to be used as your dog's water bowl.

No matter where we go in the summerif it's a short trip or a long onewe always remember to bring water for everyone. We also bring a bottle of water for the dog, and it took about six car trips before it was finally embedded in my brain to bring a container for the dog to drink out of. 

Have you ever tried to give your dog a drink from a water bottle? I have, and believe me when I tell you, it's not easy. What it is, is messy and a major waste of water.

Finding water for your dog isn't hard, but finding something for him to drink out of is.
