I had a conference to attend in San Diego in June and since my DH's son is in NAVY and stationed in San Diego, we've decided to make this a family vacation. So instead of me flying to the conference by myself, we drove from Denver to San Diego with Monty. This was Monty's first long trip and I have to admit, I was not sure what to expect. To my great relief, he did just great. In fact, I believe he was born to travel. He slept most of the time while the car was moving.
And when we stopped for a potty break, we made sure there was a park for him to chase a ball.
Or at least pose with Mom for a scenic picture in the middle of nowhere in Utah.
Monty was not too impressed with the "original pet friendly Motel 6" where we stayed our first night. You kind of get suspicious if your dog sniffs every single inch of a hotel room as soon as he enters. He was restless the first night and worried about every single strange sound he heard. So we've decided to upgrade the next night and spent twice the money for a Hampton hotel in Las Vegas. Monty felt right at home. It must be the fancy poodle part, I'm guessing. No suspicious sniffing involved. I tried to barter with the hotel management and offered Monty to pose for their hotel advertising in exchange for a free room.
We made it to San Diego a day earlier than originally planned, mainly thanks to our wonderful co-pilot Monty.
He was THRILLED about the fresh ocean air.
He also loved the view from our hotel room that gave him a chance to keep track of all the ducks living in the hotel pond right outside.
And since I'm out of characters for this blog and can't post another picture, just imagine worn out Monty sleeping peacefully on the hotel bed. :-)
Here is a video of Monty's first time on a beach:
