Has anyone done the trip from Michigan to Florida with their dog? What should we bring for him, and any suggestions on a nice motel/hotel to stay at that is clean on our way down and home?

I have moved from Phoenix to Ohio with two cats. I know you're supposed to keep them in carriers for safety but though 8 hours a day for 5 days was inhumane. We layed 1/2 of the back seat down and put a litter pan, collapsable water bowl and small bowl of food back there and let them enjoy the trip too. The old guy mostly layed on the floor behind the drivers seat but the 5 year old thought is was an excellent adventure! Most Best Westerns, Super 8, Red Roof Inn and Holiday Inn Express will accomodate pets for a $10 charge. Have a GREAT time!

In August, my husband and I will be driving to Missouri from California to take my mom a car.
I'd like comments and/or suggestions on taking a 6 hour car trip with my 8 month old dachshund. I've never done this before and since he's still young I don't want to leave him at a kennel for the 3 or 4 days I'll be gone.
