We are empty nesters and keep thinking the sadness will come. Until it does we will continue to travel with the newest member of the family. She is a certified service dog who lost her mommy and daddy in the tornadoes in Alabama 2 years ago. Because of the trauma she can not be left alone and we travel ALOT. She loves the plane but finding pet friendly locations that are not dumps are hard. We have learned to stick to Residence Inns unfortunately they are not everywhere. Any other suggestions would be welcomed!
