Degen (Celhaus Xcellent Hope) at 24 weeks

“This year we opted to do a several-day vacation in Asheville, joined by friends from PA (Asheville photo). We were not yet comfortable leaving Degen in a boarding kennel as we did with Chipper and Kooper, so into the car he went. Road trip!  Of course, between his inaugural haul back East and the handful of trips to Virginia, he could not have been easier on the road. I was less sure about staying in an apartment in downtown Asheville, adding a bit of suspense over potty trips. He was (or we were) perfect on that front, proving “responsive” when walked to available bits of grass and frozen dirt.  Degen was also quite calm while in his crate in the apartment. That was handy as it got quite cold while we were there. I didn’t want to leave him in a cold car for very long.”
