I know each situation is different - and it's hard to leave them - but when I had Lhasas' I did kennel them from time to time. Sena may not be possible at all... just curious.
Sena and I are attached at the hip. Being a Type 2 diabetic she requires 2 daily insulin injections and won't let anyone but me give them to her.

While I was in the hospital for 3.5 days Sena wouldn't let Arlene give her the shots, even tho we had Arlene give the morning shots for 3 months prior to surgery. So, she got nothing but protein to eat.

I don't want to leave her unless absolutely necessary. When people meet her they say, "I want a monkey.", my reply is always, "No you don't, they take over your life."

Aren't you the guy with the ultimate knee problem? So many of us have bum knees. Hmm, perhaps an RVM subgroup -- we could call ourselves the "wannabe butt kickers"

Steve and Annie -- your sleep number will change once start to cross over mountains. Higher altitudes cause the beds to feel rock hard, so you let some air out. Then as you descend they become mushy.

Have read the manual on letting the air down at altitude. And we actually like the Sleep Number bed better than our bed at home. Ours is one of the top of the line models so that may make a difference - but so far never had a mush problem. At home we fight with pillows and toss and turn for neck and back - on the S N - we just make an occasional adjustment and it's all good. A much better nights sleep for us. Could also be the motorhome effect... lol... every thing is better in a motorhome 😎

The consideration is the size of the mounds of bacon being mentioned.

LoL... what a great time we had. And Ole John T Hall was a great guy and guide too! Would do that again in a heartbeat!!
Steve - - you're right. It was a great experience. Mary Ann is still getting mileage out of "the biggest fish" designation.

We are settlin' down a little bit for a while. Our adventures with the grandkids are done for now. It was sooooooooooo much fun to see their reactions to various gorgeous areas of this fine country of ours.

In late October we are going to finish off our bucket list of running the MH thru 49 of the 50 states. We'll check off Conn. (46), New Jersey (47), Maryland (48), and Deleware (49). Being just "part timers", we will have hit them ALL since September of 2010 while covering some 40,000 plus miles in the process. THAT IS WHAT WE BOUGHT THE MOTOR HOME FOR.

Stay safe, stay well, stay happy, and say "hi" to Annie (your better half).
