From Marie Potter, Lakewood, Wash.
Here are my two “pests” that travel with me. I’m a full-timer on my own except for these two.
I have a small dog, Booker, and a big cat, Molly. The cat had four owners in two years, so I call her my “used cat.” I’ve had her for three years. The dog’s a rescue mutt with a double dose of ears and a triple dose of terrier ‘tude. He’s been with me for six years.
When I’m driving they fight over the pet seat on the passenger side. After a bit of a “hissy fit” and wrangle they wind up sleeping together. I took this picture while on a ferry crossing in Quebec. “Are we there yet?”

From Norma Dewbre, Georgia
I travel in a Coachmen Class B campervan with my five dogs: four Yorkies and a schnoodle (schnauzer/poodle). In the picture above, they are, left to right, Kujo (schnoodle), Yahtzee, Tucker, Trouble and Bella (the only little girl).
In the picture on the right they’re checking out the campground. The smallest one, Trouble, must have been tucked away somewhere, but he’s in the picture below with the schnoodle, Kujo, which was taken at Fort Pickens Campground in Pensacola, Fla. Yes, that’s sand, not snow — beautiful white sand.
My dogs LOVE to camp but the schnoodle does not like to ride in the vehicle. He is scared of that and of lightning and thunder. If anyone has a remedy for that I would sure like to hear it. Have tried the thunder vest but that doesn’t work. For now he gets Valium but that doesn’t really do much good.
