Recent studies have confirmed what many of us already knew: Having a dog in the family is good for your health . Let's expand that -- dogs can make car trips better, too.
This has been clear to me since after college, when I made regular cross-country drives. Without a simple care arrangement for Gus, a German shepherd, I found myself with a co-driver. At first, each time a trip loomed I agonized over what a burden Gus might be, what with the extra stops, the need to carry his food, the challenge of finding dog-friendly motels.
