Ex wife says it all HAHA joking, but don't she have more options of someone else caring for the dog? If you're new at driving, the last thing you need is distractions on the road, from an old dogs well being.

Don't be a cuck, first its the dog, then something else with the ex to get in your way while trying to get this new career going. Im with Steve, leave the dog out of it as a new driver, and not just any dog, your ex's dog?? Nope, just asking for distraction and pain man....my blunt .02 cents.

What does your son want you to do?

Just to answer your question about the dog dying while you are on the road. Veterinarians dispose of dead pets all the time. You can take the dog to a vet and they will dispose of the body for a fee. Whether it is wise to take the dog with you, that’s your decision. Good luck.

When my mom was alive, she always said " I don't know what I'll do if my baby dies before me" she loved this dog, had it 17+ years. Well, mom went first (7/2012) So after the dog went blind and deaf, she was bumping into everything, couldn't find her food and water. So, me and my brother decided, after a couple more years, it was her time, this wasn't a good life for her. So he had moms dog cremated, a wall plaque made with paw prints, a lock of hair, was nice wooden carved box with her ashes inside. So, I told bro we were going to put the dogs ashes/box inside mom's urn, so they'd be together forever.

I took "them" back to Calif, from Arizona, after I finally could walk again, and had sold my '69 VW Bus. I picked out headstone with mom's name added to dads stone. They are all at the Riverside Veteran's Cemetary. Luckily, the place didn't know, or find, we had the dogs ash box inside with mom's, so they will be eternally together.....
