  • Ever taken a road trip in a Tahoe with 11 dogs???

    I HAVE!! 18 HOUR TRIP, TO BE EXACT! I was just going thru my pictures and found these shots of my pack on our move from Texas to Wisconsin this summer and thought you all might enjoy seeing what it's like having 11 dogs in a Tahoe for 18 hrs. Let me tell you....potty breaks were a PITA!
    (Some of my itty bittys were behind my seat so I couldn't get them)...

    PS: Please don't judge me...I know they should have all been in crates!! There was no way to get all those crates in one vehicle!!

      Wow! I couldn't imagine having 11 dogs in one vehicle for 18 hours. Just goes to show what we'll do for our furkids. BTW you have some beautiful babies.

        Your Gang Looks...

        really happy and well behaved in the car. I would never judge you about not having your dogs in a crate. in the late 70's, I can remember being small enough to be standing up in the front seat between Mom and Dad with Dad driving 60 MPH with a Coor's beer can in one hand and the steering wheel in another. LOL!

            Oh I remember those trips, not the 70's the 80's, but my Dad was sharing the beer with our Dobie.

            We drove from San Fransisco to Las Vegas with 4 dogs, 3 cats, a cage of Finches, a bunny, oh and a large goldfish in a tupperware bowl covered with foil that had holes.
            The cats had crates that's it.
            We also had my mom, dad, me, my little sister, and my aunt. We had a Ford Aerostar. We took the middle seat out so the animals had that room. Me my sister, and my aunt (12 yrs older than my mom) had the third seat, mom and dad up front. Thank god we were following the moving van.
            That was 20 yrs ago, so I hate to say we were a little lacks in the seatbelt area (it just wasn't enforced like it is now)

            This is why I can't understand people that give up thier dogs because "We are moving out of state" They are a part of the family, figure it out.
            If you sweat the small stuff, all you have is small soggy stuff.....

              How about 9 (I think) dogs, 3 people and all of their stuff (crates, food, etc) and our stuff and grooming gear in a standard Chrysler minivan?! Went 14 hours if I remember correctly going to South Carolina for Groomfest. It was a miserable trip, lol. Funny to look back on. It was really fun trying to get out of the vehicle and not lose dogs when going to get gas...made it back safely with all of them amazingly enough.

                During hurricane Katrina we had to evacuate with 15 schnauzers in a pathfinder!! The only problem was we were going 150 miles at about 10 miles per hour!! It took us 18 hours to go 150 miles. It was hot and the dogs were in bad shape when we got to our destination.

                  How about this one?? 2 Terriers and a Pom in a Corvette on a road trip to Myrtle Beach,SC for 3 hours. That was a L-O-N-G trip!!

                  A few years ago my friend and her DH took their 2 Rotties to West Virginia (again - a 3 hour tour) in a Toyota Corolla! They bought the dogs some smoked pig ears to enjoy on the trip and it gave the dogs such bad gas they had to ride home with the windows 1/2 way down in the middle of the Winter!

                    It's ok... I don't crate my dogs in the car either. Never have, and even if I wanted to, it would be hard to do in a Silverado. Unless I threw the crates in the bed of the truck, and since I live in freezing WI that's really not an option.

                    I remember the 70's when my dad would let me sit in his lap and help drive. lol I'm sure he had a few beers in him also. I also remember taking my newborn home from the hospital in '87 in one of those baby carriers. I sat in the back seat with the baby carrier in my lap. Nowadays a nurse comes out to the car with you to make sure the carseat is strapped in correctly. Boy how times have changed.

                    Love the picture of the big boy and "dad". Priceless

                      This is a great thread! And those are wonderful pics!!! Your dogs look really content and it is actually kind of cozy looking in there! Your one Westie looks like a goat up there purveying his lands! And that Mastiff just melted my heart. So did the face on that Husky! So many big dogs!
                      We had only 3 dogs when we moved from Colorado to WI a few years ago,,they were all good and the trip was without incident, but I wouldn't want to do it again!
                      These stories others are sharing are great!

                        Boy, did those pixs bring a smile to my face.......especially the "hang over the driver's neck" one !! I can appreciate the PITA potty breaks, six dogs drives me crazy, especially when I've got to go too !

                          LOL, this thread makes me feel better. We moved our whole house from PA to KY in a straight truck (My husband borrowed from work) with the cat in a carrier in the middle and my standard poodle pretty much in my lap. For 12 hours! If you don't know, the front part of the truck was basically like the front seat of a pickup truck, standard shift in the middle. The stupid cat meowed the entire way. I can't wait to do it again soon...

                            How about 18 GSDs, and 4, 3, and 1 year old children from Sydney, Nova Scotia to Tampa, Florida with an 8 hour delay in Toronto and a trip through customs and immigration? I think you're gonna have more fun than I did! I still wake up screaming!! (J/K about the screaming) ;-)

                              Yea, I remember getting stopped by a cop when I was standing up in the middle of the front seat when I was about 3 years old (1968)! "Ma'am...you need to have your SON sit while you're driving!" First off, I was/am a GIRL and secondly, shouldn't I have been buckled too?? lol
