He thought looking backward would help get him there faster, maybe he just wanted to see what he missed being in the back seat. but we were sure to give him a traveling companion. That's Dug from the movie UP, if you haven't seen it GO see it!
From south Texas to northern Wisconsin is a bit of a haul, we went through Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, and Oklahoma. We had some weather to deal with so we didn't get all the state signs but we got a few :) Jethro was a rock star with the crazy traffic noise while he stood on the side of the road for pictures, they will go in his album of the road trip!
We spent A LOT of time in the car, 2900 miles to be exact, and he was good as gold, most of the time. After all he is a 5 month old puppy. He decided to shred the box that holds all the travel poo bags! not much i could do while driving, except clean up the mess at the next gas fill up.
he slept and slept and slept in the car which was GREAT, but by the time we were done driving for the night all he wanted to do was play!! UGGG!! Feeling bad for him being cooped up all day (but so was I)
We did lots of whistle recall and he was FANTASTIC! this is the exact reason we work so hard on recall, so that he can go out and be a dog and come back when needed!
After hours and hours of running and chasing and playing with all the other dogs, exploring the weird lizards that popped up, a random frog and countless flying things he was completly exhausted!
After all was said and done we still had another 2 days in the car to get home. All the playing from the last day really tired him out and it was a peaceful ride the first day.
Now Jethro is home safe and sound and was happy to reunite with his puppy roomates. He wasnt tired for long and was raring to go. He is getting ready for an even bigger adventure this week...
