Traveling Dogs

In other news, two golden girls, both originally from the South but rescued in NYC, are having the adventure of a lifetime! We had planned to fly to Florida for work, however at 43 and 49 lbs our pups are too large to fit in a bag to fly, and so we rented a mini-van and drove all the way to South Florida! We put the seats down, and laid their beds on the floor so that they could stretch out and relax, and of course they had plenty of toys and treats to entertain them. Buuuut they pretty much slept the whole way there, because, well, at the end of the day they’re dogs, and dogs sleep a lot. They spent their first night in a cheap motel, somewhere in South Carolina where it was still chilly enough for them to put on their comfy bathrobes and settle in for the night. 

 Once we arrived in West Palm Beach, the first thing we did was look up a dog beach! The closest one to us is in Jupiter, and is located on Ocean Blvd, where it intersects with Marcinski rd. It was their first time, and they loved it! There were so many dogs at the beach just hanging out, digging, chasing balls and going for the occasional swim.

We tried to get our girls in the water, but I think the waves were still a bit too intimidating for them. Cleopatra tried to drink the water, and Audrey made friends with some nice old ladies who were sitting calmly in beach chairs. Over all it was a massive success, and we can’t wait to take them again!
