This is my girl, Jinji. Â She’s aÂ Bouvier des FlandresÂ andÂ a real show stopper.Â She is the daughter I never had and she became my best friend when my nest became empty 7 going on 8 years ago.Â This past weekend I did an overnight and I could not take Jinji with me (she went to the kennel).
Long days out of the house and local trips cause me much stress. Â Because Jinji, although flexible, does not want to be left aloneÂ 8 – 10 hours.
This post may seem unrelated to issues of aging young and/or traveling light. Â However nothing could be farther from the truth. Â Owning a pet addresses many concerns that can arise for some Boomers, like loneliness and self-esteem. Yet pet ownership raises others issues.
My dog is great company. She has helped me remain fit and healthy. All I have to say is “walk” and she starts running in circles. No one is ever quite as happy as Jinji to take a walk with ME. And my heart loves her for this.
But it is a pain when you travel Â and cannot take your dog along with you on short trips. as you can see, Jinji is too large to hide. So I am wondering, do you travel wiith your pet. And if so do you search for hotels that accept pets?
