My friend Moxie the Maltese is little and sometimes I’m jealous of how easy it is for her to go everywhere with Penelope, her owner. They go everywhere together! I’m a yellow lab so I’m a pretty big dog, though not one of the biggest. Still, you can’t put me in a purse and cart me around. But big dogs like to travel and be with their owners too! Here are some ways to make travel with your large dog…
I do NOT like to travel in cars. I’m one of those dogs who cannot settle down. I stand in the backseat the whole time, queasy and uncomfortable, asking my family “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?”

You might say Asta is one lucky dog. His owners, Cindy and Mark, recently took him on a 500-mile bicycle tour from the Seattle area into Canada, across to Vancouver Island, to the San Juan Islands and back to Seattle. The 11-year-old Parson Russell Terrier saw the sights from the comfort of his Dog Rider Bicycle Seat Lookout. Cindy and Mark would ride 500 miles and climb 27,000 feet in 15 days, all while carrying the weight of camping equipment….
