I have so many friends that have small dogs that are like children to them. Amy has Spike, Janice has GoGo, Mike has Beckham and Karen has Lulu. These are the best cared for (spoiled) dogs I have ever met. They even take them on vacation. (well why not?) They are like children to them and its very important that they can take their dogs along where ever they go. I think they even take the dogs on vacation with them. Like the last time I was in Orlando vacationing with my friends, we had a few dogs with us too. Its hard to find pet friendly Florida vacation rentals homes and pet friendly hotels. One good place to look is petvacationhomes.com. They list only vacation rentals and hotels where your pet can travel and stay with you. They also have the neede ammenities that people with pets need. Check them out the next time you want to go to Orlando and bring your pet along too.
