So sorry for your loss. There are many other "furrever" friends out there to help you heal. So sad saying goodbye to our companions. Hugs!

When we went back and forth with our dogs, we never had to drug them. They enjoyed the ride. Would sleep most of the time on the seat between us. Just stop and let them do their business ever so often and stretch their legs. When we stopped to eat, we would leave the car running...doors locked...and made sure we had the other set of keys with us (not locked in the car). I would run out ever so often to make sure the car was still running. I was overly concerned. Never had any problem, though. They loved to travel.

Oh, that is sad. I am so sorry. It will be a long trip for you, but maybe the excitement of moving to a new home will help distract you a bit. Take care.

I am so sorry to hear that Your Emma is gone. It takes a chunk out of your heart for sure.
I hope that once you are happily settled in your new home, you will consider adopting a rescue.
Not as a replacement, nothing will ever replace the love you have for Emma.
But I've found myself that a rescue makes a wonderful addition to the family and helps with the healing process.
There are many wonderful rescue organizations here in TV.
Deepest sympathy for your loss.

We travel with small dogs, about 11 lbs. I don't feed them before we drive, except a half of a Wal-Dram2 found at Walgreens. Is a form of non-sedating dramamine. The other trick is to place suit cases in the back and a foam rectangular bed with their normal dog begs on the foam bed. They are level with the windows and they don't get sick and throw up. I make sure they get water with the stops. They sleep the whole time. They used to throw up before we did these things. They are great passengers.

Wow. Your moniker sure is a head turner.

So sorry for your loss. I've no doubt Emma had a wonderful life with you. May the memories bring you comfort!

"Terror" is a really interesting TOTV moniker.

I agree. We have some wonderful rescues in Florida. When my dachshund died, I put my name in with both Pug abd Boston rescues. The Pug came through first, so, now we have both a Boston And a Pug.
