at the end of Feb we are goin on a mini vacashion from Fir - sun we will be home Monday morning.

Georgia has never been away from us sence we got her last march,
we found this wonderful kennell but I am worried about what she will think when we drop her off & do not return for her for 3 days I don't want her to think that we are getting rid of her I also do not want her to do something silly like not eat not that she couldn't stand to loose about 5 LBS LOL so I guess this is more of a reasuring post for me than my dog but for thoes of you who do use boarding kennels how do your dogs take to them

We've only had to do it once and it was with Roscoe. I worried like crazy, it was a long weekend, like yours. He was just fine! Of course we got howled at like mad and peed on when we picked him up (he was soo excited to see us) but they said he was ok aside from some barking which is to be expected.

We moved and found one near us that I like just in case. I know it is hard but she will be just fine! :)

A lot depends on the kennel.

We have an excellent kennel not far from us that we trust. They're clean and take great care of the dogs-it's almost a vacation for them. While we've never taken Murphy and Mandy, we've boarded our dogs in the past without issue.

Make certain that they allow you to tour the facility first, and make certain that Georgia is up to date on her shots. She'll do just fine.

We had Molly one time in the kennel for a good week. I freaked, and called the kennel on our stop in Chicago, since their website was down, and I couldn't watch her. Thanks to the time different, I woke up at 2am (we were in Hawaii) and watched Molly until their naptime, and later over my phone. I worried sick most of the time, and broke out in tears when we picked her up on the way home from the airport.

But overall I know she was fine, had lots of fun with the other dogs, and seemed to enjoy it.

We had to board ours once, not long after we got him, unfortunately. We dropped him off on a Friday morning as we were leaving town, and although we got back Sunday afternoon, they didn't do Sunday pickups, so we couldn't pick him up until Monday. So he was there four days. We boarded at an vet clinic, and they were very nice. He was fine, but but he was super hangdog when we came to pick him up. After a few seconds, though, he forgave us.

That trip was for a college class reunion, and there was really no way to take him with. Most of our travels are to visit our families, and we always take him on those road trips. No need to board him since that one trip.
