Road Trip With Dog

A couple of weeks ago we took Riley on his first road trip. We went down to Austin. The plan was to spend the night.

He was really good in the car, and overall he did great on the trip. He did not care for the hotel. I guess he could hear everything in the building. It kept him very agitated. While my wife went to an event he and I spent time out by the pool and took an evening walk at St. Edwards University, where everyone wanted to meet him. This dog is a people magnet, and he loves everyone.

We end up coming home late Thursday night, as it was clear the hotel wasn’t going to work for him (or us). The drunken party by the pool didn’t help things.  Lesson learned.

But overall I had a good time. It’s always fun to be on the road with my wife.  We talk and laugh and it’s always so fun. I love being on the road with her, and while traveling with Riley was a new challenge, it went well. Just needs a little fine tuning.

    Travels with Riley. Kinda has a Steinbeck vibe to it.
    How is the King Of The Universe aka Lefty doing?

      Lefty is still in charge. He’s taken over my chair in the evenings, which I have given over to him in order to have the whole family together in peace.
