I have mixed emotions about traveling the country with a dog, unless maybe a chick magnet teacup dog!
I know how you feel, but these days...every mutherfucker holding up a sign on the roadside is a homeless vet w/ dog attached to their leg for the added pull on christian heart strings. Most panhandlers are there because they want to be...I hate being a hardass...but you're in a rough spot, and it sucks...I've been there myself and will likely be there again. But I ain't begging and I ain't holding up a sign asking honest folks for a handout. That's me...not everyone else, just me.
