What to do with the Dog?

Assume we are 1,000 miles from home and the DW and I both get this. What do we do with our dog?

Take care of it. Its a virus, not a death sentence.

My son had it and recovered at home with his family. They didn't contract it.

My daughter in laws 95 year old grandfather contracted it with out knowing it. It was discovered during an antibody test.

Much like if a child or family member is with you, find a way to care for everyone.

I guess exactly what you had planned for "if you 1000 miles away from home and got in an accident/injured/maimed/???? and were hospitalized or worse".

You did have a plan for "if" contingencies anyway before didn't you?

There's more than just this (and believe me I do take this very serious) virus that can affect us out on the road. In the meantime, sanitize, social distance, wear a mask in potentially close public proximities and most of all, Live Life and Enjoy the Journey.

Depends - if you're quarantining in place (in your RV), do nothing. If you both end up in the hospital... see about finding a breed-affinity or rescue group who can foster your pup, or seek help in finding a boarding kennel until circumstances change.

If you are members of FMCA, their FMCAssist plan included with your membership will arrange to have your dog transported to your domicile, covering up to $1,000 of the cost. I wonder if they would transport the dog to a family member instead of your domicile?

We have FMCA and it never occurred to us that it might be the dog that needed to be transported. Sobering thought.


So far so good for us. No problems just had this question just in case.

What breed is the dog. I have Bernese Mtn Dogs and there is breed clubs all over the country that would help with my boys in an emergency. Get phone #'s before you go. Have shot records with you.

Billy is a 12 year old Maltese. Here he is last year with his mommie somewhere near Roswell. We have all his records with us...and we are fine. In the Charleston area now headed North.

Realistically, if the virus hit you both hard enough where neither one of you couldn’t let the dog out, you probably wouldn’t be able to drive either. I wonder what an RV Park would do in that situation? I’m guessing many parks wouldn’t want you around once your reservation expired.
Are you both able to drive your RV? In my case with the virus, I went about 2 months before I felt I could safely drive again. This was mainly due to the extreme exhaustion, though I was very light-headed at times as well. Something to consider when making travel plans.

You both should be able to drive the RV. Then you could head home where it's close to your doctors while one of you is still able to function. It would be unlikely that you would both get it at the same time.

This subject is exactly why I canceled my Oregon/Idaho trip. I travel alone with 2 show Bernese Mtn dogs 125 pounds+ each. If I ended up in the hospital, what would happen to my boys, not to mention my truck and TT.

competent authority...likely local police, maybe park mgmt, would have them towed and dogs to a kennel. but even without the current virus threat you could fall ill from any number of things or be involved in a wreck. i'm in a similar boat. wife does not drive the MH...she barely drives at all.
