I have been procrastinating on writing this post for several months now. While on our Oregon trip, I spent the whole ride taking photos of Tuxley’s different faces, positions, and activities while we were driving. They turned out rather interesting and what I ended up with is a rather accurate portrayal of what traveling with a Dachshund can entail.
Tuxley is a really good traveler for the most part. He usually curls up in his car seat and sleeps. However, on the Oregon trip he was a pain! Instead of curling up and sleeping for several hours, Tuxley fidgeted, whined, wiggled, and refused to relax for a good chunk of 6 hours. It was NOT fun. When Tuxley did eventually curl up to sleep south of Portland, it was only because he had worn himself out fidgeting and was an overly tired, grumpy dog. On the return trip, Tuxley was so worn out from the excitement and stress of the Oregon coast, that he slept most of the 10+ hour ride home. It was so TOTALLY awesome!
