We didnt but I wish we could have! We went to Jamaica so it wasnt really a possibility. Also, we have 2 cats and a dog and the cats hate being in the car so we had to leave them at home. Luckily we have family that is always able to stay with our pets so we never board.

We went on a cruise, so we didn’t take our pup with us. But we have taken him on vacation to a B&B for our first anniversary. It was a lot of fun! There was a pet rescue event that weekend and we went to the dog beach. Are you making all your meals or going out? We didn’t trust leaving our dog alone in the room b/c he has major seperation anxiety and would reck the place, so we had to take him everywhere we went. If you have that issue too, I’d just make sure that you won’t want to go anywhere that he’s not allowed.

You should definitely take your pup. I think it will be nice to be together as a little family! We’re going on a cruise so obviously our kitty will not be joining us. He’ll be staying home and my FBIL/FSIL will stop by periodically to check on him.

My mom watched our cats (we went on a cruise so they weren’t allowed) but just wanted to say how cute it is that you are bringing your dog with you! love it and it shows what a good parent you are! 🙂

We are also headed to our cabin for a minimoon, and we will be taking both of our little girls with us.

No, we are flying to Spain for our honeymoon and it isn’t really feasible with 2 cats. My brother is staying at our place to take care of them. I am going to miss them so much for 2 weeks!

Take him! We are planning a getaway after we get married in September – a week at the beach. We’re planning to bring our two dogs, as I dislike boarding, and no one wants to watch them (Our Marley will be a year and 2 months at that point).

Now, when we do our ‘real’ honeymoon in the spring, I’m hoping to convince someone to watch them, as they can’t go on a cruise or travel out of the country. I wish I could bring both of the dogs though – I love having them around, even when they eat the house and make me want to scream..

We didn’t and honestly, I like having a break away with just me and my Darling Husband. We can sleep in without the dog waking us up to go out and play, we can relax without her bouncing off the walls, we can go do things in places where she isn’t allowed to come, etc.

Don’t get me wrong, we love our dog. But sometimes it is good to get a break away.

Plus, she LOVES going to the kennel (aka “Doggie Camp”). She is only in a pen at night to sleep and for meals. The rest of the day, she gets to run around outside in their play area and play with all of the other dogs. She comes home exhasted!

Since we are planning a bahamas trip it is a no go for the dogs. One will be staying with my parents and the other possibly with a friend or at the kennel. Not going to lie i am looking forward to not having to feed them, walk them and pick up their poop for a week.

I am so worried, we are going to New Zealand, and are going to be away from our horses for almost 2 weeks! I know that our cats will survive, they might be a little sad because they like to cuddle with us at night. My dad is going to take care of them.

But the horses are going to take it a lot worse.

I got Pinky, our Arabian, when he was very young and have had him for around 11 years. Pinky gets so sad when I don’t see him for like a day or two, so I don’t know how he is going to handle 2 weeks. My friend is going to take care of him, and I know that he really likes her, so hopefully he will be ok.

Smarty, our thoroughbred, is very very hard to handle, and has photo-sensitivity (kind of allergic to sunlight). He flips out sometimes and just looses it, if you try to punish him (a lot of people would try this) he just gets worse and may end up hurting his handler (not on purpose, just a very large animal jumping around is not a good thing). A lot of people are afraid of handling him. Another friend of mine is going to try to take care of him (I think she will do well with him). We are going to do a couple of practice days with my friend and Smarty to make sure she can handle. If she cannot handle him I will have to trailer him to my Vet’s breeding facility to let the Stallion handlers take care of him.
