    I've taken my dog, she's a mini poodle/bichon type thing. She always liked a hike in the woods, but for me, I like to explore and sight see and that's difficult with a pooch. She HATED me when I rented a double inner tube and we floated down a river together in it. She finally curled up for a nap when the trip was almost over. She very old now, on meds, doesn't see very well and sleeps most of the time.

    I was in a tent back then; not sure how I feel about leaving her in the PUP while I'm gone.
    What does everyone else do when they leave?

    Take ours with us... If there is only two of us then one stays in the truck with the dogs while the other does the shopping, washing, sight seeing (if the dogs aren't allowed) or what ever..

    It's a yes and no with me. Mines a 10yr old she mix. When she was younger she always came. But now she's slowing down, and gets car sick easily. So if I'm going someplace fairly close with more of a plan to relax and not do much hiking and sight seeing she comes. That being said I know of 2 trips already this year where she will be staying behind. Those she's going to be staying with my parents. Whom spoil her more than they spoil my kids;) even knowing that I feel guilty for leaving her behind.
