We're so sorry Dale. I'm so glad you got back to Indiana to be with her before her passing and that it was comfortable. Our thoughts are with you in the coming days.

Good Morning FOOFs!

We are getting ready for our longest trip away from home in the motorhome. Since my wife and I both work full time, we can only venture so far away from the home or we would just be driving the whole trip. We are taking a week off and are heading to the Memphis area from Fl. We are going to leave around lunchtime on a Friday and stop in Macon Georgia for the night. Then Saturday morning, we are going to drive the rest of the way to Memphis. We are staying in West Memphis on a place right on the Mississippi River. We will be there until the following Thursday and then will head to Navarre Beach in the FL Panhandle for 2 days before we drive all day on a Sunday to get home. Trip is in two weeks and the wife and I are both excited about the trip.

I just feel bad for my dog Monty. He dislikes riding in the car and he really hates riding in the motorhome. We have tried about everything to calm him down. He just pants and shakes the whole trip. It breaks my heart to see him so stressed during the trip. Once we get designated, he is happy and loves checking out new places and new smells. The only thing that kind of takes the edge off him is Benadryl. I think is makes him sleepy and he doesn't seem to pant as much. My other two dogs fall asleep as soon as the motorhome starts moving.

Dale, I am sorry to hear about your mom's passing. Losing a parent is awful no matter their age. I lost my dad right after he turned 50 and my mom is getting up there in age now and starting to have some health problems.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Burch, it sounds like a great trip! I remember a long time ago we would think nothing of driving 500 or more miles a day. Not anymore however.[emoticon]

A long time ago we had a Shepherd named Missy. She was also a basket case while riding in the car. Like Monty, she was very happy once we arrived at our destination.

Have you tried anti-anxiety meds for Monty? I recall way back when, while in college, when I worked for a vet, the vet prescribed similar meds for their dog for traveling, if I recollect correctly. Maybe that might help?

So sorry to hear about your Mom! Losing a loved one is never easy! Hugs and take care! Sending sincerest condolences to you and your family!

Mom died this morning. She had been in rehab and doing well, but things started to go downhill last week. After choking she refused food. They thought she had a bleed somewhere and wanted to take her to the hospital for a transfusion. She refused saying she did not want to prolong the inevitable. I don't blame her but it's still a hard thing to lose your Mom. She lasted a bit less than a week, but still appeared to be staying the same. She was filling with fluid and was on hospice for comfort. Her passing was very comfortable. She just quit breathing.

I will be here for a bit. I'm the executrix of the estate so have some things to get done before I leave. Can't wait to get back to Florida and "my new normal."

Dale
