Went to Toronto, about 1000 miles, last weekend for Thanksgiving. Daisy was a treat and a half to travel with. We took two days to go up and stopped every couple of hours for a break. Stopped at a motel for overnight where she charmed everyone she met and was a perfect guest. My daughter's family hosted us the rest of the time and other than a snapping when someone grabbed her collar from the back she was ideal with people. The only issue is her thing with other dogs but even that was tolerable. The first day that we spent with her doggie cousin she went after him but the second time that she was there, they came to a truce and ignored each other.
We drove home in one shot, 14 hours, with quick stops during gas fills. She was exhausted and slept most of the way. I figured that she would want to run when we got home but she crawled up into the duvet and hasn't moved much since.
Our bonding is strong but I didn't expect her to be quite the lady that she was. I'll do it again but whether she thinks that it was fun remains to be seen. I guess next time I ask her to get into the car I'll see.

Great o hear that Daisy did so well. Cici does very well in the car as long as she's got her crate to relax in and she gets some breaks. The tough part is dealing with strangers and other dogs. She is not so trusting.
