Puppy in a Motorhome(or not)

 At what age do you take a puppy out in a motorhome?

Even though I have had 3 puppies previously 
I cannot remember when I first took them out in the motorhome

Last year my wonderful dog Pearl had a
third litter.
They were born on 1st November
She had 6 puppies
All boys.

I kept one of the puppies even though I would have prefered a bitch.

I have called him Pippin
because that goes well with Pearl.
Pearl is so patient, allowing
him to sleep "on top" of her
even now he is bigger.

Pippin is very good at just 6 months.
We have been away in the motorhome 
but only for day trips.
I am not sure if Pearl aproves.
I intended to then go away just 
for one night as a trial.

This did not happen as I got Covid.
Now I am not sure what to do.

He is still not consistently clean all through the night.
I think this is partly my fault.
Would he behave differently in the motorhome?

Should I try going away over night with him?
If so when?

Any suggestions welcome.

Read Of the Month (April 2022)

It has been over a year since I last posted a #ReadoftheMonth.
This had not been because I have not been reading but because
I have been too busy to post regularly

Read of the Month is back

Although it is May I will start with a suggestion for April.

I selected this book originally because I heard the author
Geoffrey Parker discussing it on a podcast. 
It sounded intriguing.

As we were in the middle of a "global crisis" I thought it was a
appropriate to read even though it was about problems
during the 17th century.

Global Crisis 
    Climate Change and
    in 17th Century
Geoffrey Parker

Though all the events described took place many
years ago, it was a depressing book as there seemed to
be so many parallels with today even though the
climate change problems were with a mini ice-age
rather than global warming. 

I persisted with the book. At least in this day and age
science provides many more answers to unusual events
and faster communications allow these to be shared
more quickly.

Despite everything I found it an interesting read.
