As you can imagine a 12- hour winter road trip (the weather forecast calls for snowy, rainy, and windy conditions for our drive – yes!) with a dog, for a week-long stay in Maine, might entail some serious packing. Here are some essentials we WILL NOT and CANNOT leave our condo without.

Car trips are not one of her favorite things to say the least. She gets anxious and cannot get comfortable. She’s consistently panting and moving around. We think it’s a combination of motion sickness (apparently it’s common in Pit Bulls) and perhaps because she associates the car with part of her past.
