Travelin' Dog

Mom has decided she wants to take me to Paris with her. I don't know... that's quite a change from living with a hoarder in a house with 80 other dogs. Of course, Paris is a very dog-friendly town... I'd be able to go with her almost everywhere. But getting there is a challenge. I'd have to be in a CRATE under a seat for 9 hours. I may have mentioned that I'm no lightweight, so that's a pretty tight squeeze for me, not to mention my claustrophobia. I can't decide whether it's worse to travel or if it's worse to be separated from her for three months. I know it would break her heart to be without me for that long.

Mom thinks that I'll gradually get used to being in the crate if we work at it little by little every day. She uses treats to encourage me, which I LOVE, but it's kind of counter-productive since I can just barely fit into the crate as it is. I have a feeling that once I agree to this, it's going to be major diet and exercise for me until we leave.
