Though it is subject to change, as of now we are planning to drive to my parents' for Thanksgiving with the pupper. I think he would do best in a non puppy proofed home if he had some sort of ex pen. The one we have at home is pretty inexpensive so we could just have one shipped there but it seems wasteful as it won't be used once we leave. We could also get of those pop us tent style ones that we could travel with and use other places. Don't know where we will end going these days but we would have it and also be able to use it for pup number 2 eventually. They look very flimsy though. Recommendations?
