The ROKstraps stretchable dog leash has a traffic leader loop that you can run a seat belt through to secure your dog. It's also a great leash too!

You can still enjoy traveling….without having to worry about your little dog. In-home pet and house sitting is just starting to gain momentum in the U.S. Retirees, like us, take care of pets and homes at no cost to the homeowner, in exchange for free accommodations. Best of all, pet owners avoid boarding, kennels and expensive pet care. There are literally 1,000’s of free in-home pet and home sitters like us. Sure there’s risk involved in having a “stranger” in your home, but many of the folks offering their services are retired professionals who simply love pets and love to travel. We’re currently caring for a dog for three months while her owners are in Europe….and then going to London for two months to care for a rescue dog while the homeowners are on vacation/holiday. We've done in-home sits in San Diego, Palm Springs, New Mexico, Spain, Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand. Anyway, just to let folks know about ways to find caring, responsible, pet-loving retirees who will do in-home pet sitting at no cost....so you can do the traveling you want. We put together some stories about our experiences in the past two years of pet sitting around the world at: www.retireespetsitforfree.com

Margaret,

I've never had a dog who was afraid of thunder. My terriers have always run out into the yard and barked at the booming noise. I have heard of something called a Thundershirt that helps to calm anxious dogs. This is a simple idea and works off the principle that a tight fitting shirt gives the dog the same pressure as a "hug" from a human. You might wish to try this as a lot of dog owners swear by it.

We are having a bad thunderstorm right now. Where is my son's big black lab? In the bathtub Moms 136.JPGhiding.

I feel so sorry for her, she even goes into the bathroom to hide when it even looks like rain. I don't know why she is so afraid. Any suggestion?

Oh what a precious pair. I don't think we ever forget the memories of our pets. They just hold a special place in our hearts.

One of my favorite pictures of Rufus & Charlie is this one. We were in Alligator Point, Florida when they noticed this crab. I think they were trying to figure out exactly what he was. The crab eventually fled into the ocean and left the two puzzled dogs on the beach.

Charlie and Rufus lived to be eighteen and seventeen and I still miss them. They were wonderful traveling companions.
