So maybe if I get books that show nice places we can go and take the dogs he'll be so happy I'm will to go somewhere he'll be ok with taking the dogs.
You *have* to check out this place: www.crystalwoodlodge.com
It's near Crater Lake & Klamath Falls in Oregon. It's a dog-friendly B&B with tons of fun dog-friendly activities nearby. It was so much fun when we went. (It's also the place where Roscoe got "lost" for an hour 'cause we were stupid. "Lost" is in quotation marks 'cause he would beg to differ. He knew exactly where he was the whole time. We just didn't know where he was. )
