Even I thought this was somewhat crazy. I had to bring something to a friend who lived in North Carolina, so we decided to meet in Northern Virginia on Sunday – a perfect middle point. It was about four hours each way for both of us.
Maddux, and especially Toby, absolutely love car rides, so I decided to bring them with me for the mini-road trip. And, I say mini, because we did it all in one day. Usually road trips should be more than one day.
They had a blast!
We left New Jersey around 8 am, and Toby was beyond excited to get in the car. We met our friend in Woodbridge, Virginia and our first stop was a pet-friendly patio in an outdoor shopping area.
Maddux goes all the time to restaurants, but since Toby’s been sick, he has gone as much because of his weakened immune system. I was a little worried how he would do. He did great, and was one super happy pup to be out, walking around and meeting people.
We went to a second place, which also allowed pets on their patio, too. Toby loves beer, (but he doesn’t get it) so I thought it would be cute to get a photo of him in front of the brewery, which was set back from any main roads and in an office complex.
Usually very well behaved for a photo, when he can smell beer, any training goes out the window. It took what felt like forever to get him to stay for a photo. He just kept wanting to run inside. Everyone has that problem with their dogs, right?
