We downsized to zero dogs when the last one passed away. It was a German Shepherd, and we miss having one, but don't want the restrictions of traveling with a dog. When we wintered in the south last year it seems most people have the little yippy dogs that bark constantly, can't figure why. One couple had 4 greyhounds, another couple had 2, nice calm quiet dogs. A few German Shepherds in the park, so we still got to pet them without the commitment of owning one.

Norm and Ginny - we were planning to downsize to zero dogs (it's a pain finding hotels that take even a little very quiet dog) but then we got the shitzu six years ago as a "housewarming gift" from family.

Donna and Carl - It's only because we'll be living in the same town as our three grandkids that we would consider taking them for a few days to a nearby Provincial Park and give their parents a break. The main reason we're going as big as a 19 footer is for the extra space when we hope to spend a good part of the winter south in it and need some separate space for when it's raining! And I hate to tell you Donna but our dream too is an Escape 5.0 and we hope to have one before the year is out.

I want you to know we have nothing against dogs. We just feel in some measure it's unfair to the dog and often to other campers, particularly if you're not just out for a weekend.

Most travelers, at least part of the time end up leaving their dog in their camper though I have met campers that would not leave their dog alone, meaning they did not ever leave the campground. As my sister in law says, usually applying it to descriptions of people's personality, "some dogs bark".

We have taken our grandkids with us on occasion. It was fun for all. They are now working adults so that time is over, however in our 13 years it amounted to the order of a month.
