We finally have two options of potential Cavvie family members to visit that come from tested parents. It has taken a lot of work, alot of time and alot of contacts to get to this point. Some folks here provided a few tips along the way. We are going to visit a male and female on Thursday-Friday.

For those who feed fresh or frozen food, I would love your guidance in transporting raw dog food for the trip. They are frozen commercial patties. I plan to put them in small cooler with lots of ice for 6-hour drive, but it is VERY hot here so car will get hot during stops. Do others have better ideas for keeping raw dog food cold for long drives? Would dry ice or frozen gel packs work better than regular ice?
