If you find yourself under-challenged when planning a month-long, 7,000-mile trip to the west coast and want to test your organizational skills, add a dog to the trip and stop at many pet-uncongenial national parks.  You will have to do much research on dog-friendly hotels, dog parks near interstates to punctuate eight-hour drives, and doggy daycares near park entrances.  You will also have to drive with the windows open so the dog can check out the scenery, even though it’s 33 degrees and you’re going 80.
