We are a typical American family - scattered all over the country. My husband and I recently relocated to North Country, New York Our daughter is in graduate school studying to be a physical therapist and our son is in college pursuing his passions for language, entrepreneurship, and snowboarding.
We travel with our dog, Tai, a 12 yo 1/2 std poodle 1/2 cocker spaniel, as we have recently moved and have not found someone to watch him. He went blind about 6 months ago and ignores all dogs and cats. He might run into them (as he runs into furniture, walls, people etc) though but does not do it on purpose. Dogs that have met him seem to understand he has something wrong with him and leave him alone. He is crate trained. Tai has done very well in hotels, our new home and other home in the last few months as we have done lots of traveling. We never leave him along.
We all are experienced travelers and have really enjoyed staying with Airbnb hosts in their homes. Whenever we stay in others' homes, we are always respectful of the hosts space, privacy and routine. We also treat their homes with the utmost care. You know - like the golden rule!
