I can't imagine vacationing without Mia. She loves riding in the car and just being with us. So many hotels now accommodate pets so it's gotten easier to take them with you.
We recently visited Bryce Canyon and stayed at Americas Best Hotel. It really wasn't the best but the only hotel near the Canyon that allowed pets. That's ok....it was clean.
We had to carry her on some of the trails because dogs weren't allowed but she's a lightweight.
She was a perfect little travel companion.
