Earlier this month I traveled to Orlando, Florida for the Global Pet Expo for five days. It was my first real business travel since I adopted Luna, so it took some adjusting during the trip. Here are a few things that got me through:

Start by being in a business where you are surrounded by pet lovers.

Go where dog toys are bigger than you.

Just look at this face.

Smooshed puppy face

Find some “replacement” dogs, who you can take with you!

Spend some time with dogs that could make the business trip! I got to see Pepper from Pepper’s Paws and Lulu from Life with Beagle!

Be relieved you don’t have to pick up this for a little while.

Earth Rated Poop Business Card Holder

Find something that reminds you of your pets back home.

Sit back and watch a show (by Olate Dogs!)

Or enjoy a bit of the Puppy Bowl.

Or just find a pile of puppies. BONUS if they look like your dog!

Wag more, Bark less?

Bring them home something beautiful and delicious!

Three Dog Bakery make custom treats!

What? You can’t do all these things on your business trips? Then I suggest heading to the Global Pet Expo next year!
