Yes, and the pup will enjoy the long breaks for walks. I have to admit, I just read the title and thought you were going from Ft Worth to Houston.
Your actual route is much more manageable, but still at least one leg too long for a first trip with family. I like your enthusiasm, though.
Too bad there's not a quick charger in Waco, that would make a huge difference.
