I've taken my dog, she's a mini poodle/bichon type thing. She always liked a hike in the woods, but for me, I like to explore and sight see and that's difficult with a pooch. She HATED me when I rented a double inner tube and we floated down a river together in it. She finally curled up for a nap when the trip was almost over. She very old now, on meds, doesn't see very well and sleeps most of the time. I was in a tent back then; not sure how I feel about leaving her in the PUP while I'm gone. What does everyone else do when they leave?
