Doggy Dilemma

We are having a doggy dilemma. We are traveling to Maine in August for vacation and last year we only had one dog. Now we have two. The issue is should we take both dogs or board one. 

I am not so sure about taking Itsy Bitsy because she is only 8 months old, doesn't listen as well as Zoey since she is still learning and the house we stay in is near the road. I would rather board her, than have her hit by a car. So....does this make me a bad owner for boarding my pup and taking the other?



It doesn't cost must to board her..it is about $20 a day and it is at our local vet so they know her and they are very nice to her. Of course I will call every day and bug them about her. I will cry when I drop her off..DO NOT JUDGE ME..this happens..I can not help it..she is my child. 

So...I do not know what to do..I want to take her but I feel it is best to board her. Dang it. I need answers people!

  1. Sounds like your mind is made up... don't feel bad, you're doing what's best for her safety!

    Also, where do you guys stay when you're here?

  2. There's no shame in boarding the younger one! I've been debating doing this when we head out on our vacay since Texas is a big ball of energy. Way easier to control an 8 pound dog verses a 55 pound one!

  3. Nope, in fact, I say do it! My cousin's are coming down here for a couple weeks from Texas and they choose to board theirs, except they're boarding him down here so at least he's a little closer. Do what works and just call in daily if needed. You're a great mommy!!

  5. Aw, this is hard! If you're worried about safety, definitely board her! It will be hard to be without her, but she will be so happy to see you when you get back!

  6. If you feel it's best to board her, then you do what you need to do! It certainly doesn't sound like cruel and unusual punishment to me, hahaha. The other thing is, I dunno what you'll be doing on your vacation, but when Nate and I go camping, we bring these long cord things, that hook around a tree and then hook to the dogs' collars. So since the cords are really long they can walk around and hang out, but you wouldn't have to worry about her running into the road.

  8. I think you should board her. It's for her safety. And yes I cry about my dogs too. No judgment here!

  9. ahhh! This is a hard decision. It's sad to leave one behind but it sounds like she'll be happy there and maybe even less stressed than if on vacay with you?! Good luck, I know it's hard to choose. We have to leave our dog with grandparents for the month of July while we're somewhat homeless, I've already cried about it, no lie!!
