Nah, if I had a dog I'd probably name it Bob or Ralph or something like that.

And having a ferret can be like having a toddler--all energy and into everything... Rats do make wonderful pets as would a small dog. I bet it would be great to have something for company on those long trips.

Correct me if I'm wrong. wasn't the show BJ McCain & his best friend Bear...
I don't remember what his name was.( the actor). but.. He was dark haired, and sexy looking. The monkey was so cute. He was always dressed in little boy clothing.
A friend of my daughter has rats.. she said the females are really friendly, but the males are mean..lol

I vote for something like a chihuahua. I had one that we trained to potty on command. We'd take her outside put her down and tell her Misty pot. She'd squat and go and we'd pick her up and bring her back inside.
Adult dogs really don't need anymore pit stops than you do. My dogs if necessary can go just twice a day 6 am and 4 pm in the winter.(That's an emergency schedule if no one is home.) If you watch feeding and watering schedule and have some sort of routine a dog will adapt and as others said there is always the litter box if the dog has to go NOW.
Best of luck finding a traveling companion.

just so you know, you dont have to actually litter-box train the pup with a litter box...that could be messy in your truck! they make abosrbant sheets that you lay down, and they learn to go on that spot...once its soiled you toss it. like this: http://www.amazon.com/DISPOSABLE-PUP.../dp/B000FOH6NU

they also make ones that are like fake grass that are reusable...look into all the different options if you do go with a dog, you arent stuck with just a litter box!
