Dog Gone Traveling

Do you travel with your dog? If so, you're not alone. Many of our readers take their dogs on vacation, whether it's an easy drive from home or a flight across the Atlantic.
Each week, we introduce you to some of these furry friends and invite you to tell us about your dog. We've made it really simple. You can upload a photo and provide details (like those below)
here. We'll be in touch with you if we need any additional details and to let you know when your dog will be included. We welcome all dogs who travel including big dogs, little dogs; pure breds and mixed breeds; puppies and dogs of a certain age; dogs that have passports and some who just travel within their own state.
Don't travel with a dog but love taking pictures of those you spot along the way? We also welcome photographs of dogs you see or meet while vacationing. Take a look at these cuties (in the sidebar) one of our contributors saw at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia. Some dogs really have it made!

A Travel "Tail": "Henry jumps into the trunk of the car when he sees we are getting ready to go anywhere--even grocery shopping. He's an expert traveler...completely chilled out and loves having his photograph taken wherever he goes."

A Travel "Tail": "Nellie acts like a puppy even though she's over two years old. It is all we can do to keep her out of the water and snow when we travel. She will dog paddle for hours on end, knows how to surf and got up her courage to sprint down a boat dock and jump in the Colorado River. She gives us the 'poor puppy' look when we're packing, until she learns she's going with us. Then it's all smiles and tail thumping."
