Between a famly vacaton, an out-of-town brthday party and trps to the lake, we have had to recently rely on relatves to help wth Lucy. When famly sn't avalable, we ask a lovely neghbour who s happy to have Lucy come to her house. As Lucy gets older, I can tell she would rather be n the comfort of someone's home, rather than us board her. Packng Lucy up for a few days, especally when she s gong to a house that s dog free, s a lttle d•erent than packng her up to go to a kennel. Here's my "go to" lst: FOOD – I always pack an extra porton n case we end up pckng her up later than planned (and saves my extended famly a trp and havng to figure out what food to buy!). BED – We make sure to wash Lucy's bed before we pack t. People are knd enough to help us, last thng we want to do s brng extra dog har nto ther house. Read all about how to pck the rght bed for your dog on page 17. BOWLS – Don't count on pet free houses to have extra dog dshes! A food mat s also thoughtful, we recently got one and we love t. TREATS – Somethng that I know Lucy loves and takes some tme to eat. Last tme we packed her some Greenes, a treat that gves her fresh breath too – a wn-wn for everyone! TOY – Lucy stll loves her Chuckt! and whoever s watchng her always gves her lots of exercse, so ths guarantees park tme s fun and trng. Ths fall & wnter, f you are takng your dog wth you to vst famly or leavng your pet wth frends, please travel safe (pets ncluded!). Happy readng, Product availability will vary by store location.
