We decided to take a cottage that allowed dogs and see how it was taking our boy with us....well it was a BLAST! The kids enjoyed every moment with their buddy. Petey was incredible on the car rides, 10 hours each way, and wonderful in the house and on the property,we didn't use our crate once, we never even put it together. The cottage was on a tidal cove on 7 acres of land, no neighbors and just complete freedom for a active puppy. Sorry for so many photos, it was puppy heaven for my boy. Next weekend I have another cottage on a lake, so expect more photos!!!
