Traveling With Furkids, Part Two

Jake prefers Arby's or McDonald's while on the road.


If you are on the road, fixing a meal for your dog may be difficult.

Unless your furkid likes dry food alone, you may have a problem.

If your dog has a sensitive stomach, you may need to pack some boiled hamburger or chicken in a cooler. Jars of baby food chicken, turkey, lamb or beef might work for you. Do not buy the baby food with meat and vegetables. You will waste your money.

Some dogs are sensitive to water changes, so you may have to fill some containers with your tap water.

Recently it was dinnertime, and Jake and I needed to eat after being several hours on the road. I have learned Jake will eat chicken nuggets or roast beef while traveling. (I hope my vet is not reading this.)

I pulled into an Arby’s.

“I’ll have one plain roast beef …”

“Would you like a combo with that?”

“No. My dog doesn’t like combos.”


“Would your dog like extra meat on that?”

“No he wouldn’t, but I’ll have the deli turkey sandwich.”

Jake and I had dinner in the parking lot. I didn’t get a combo either.



About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
