Traveling with a dog in my hack, so bonus points for shady spots to play and rest in, and running water to cool off.

If you stay on 34 to the NE/IA border, you can cross at Plattsmouth and head west on NE 66. I would take NE66 or NE92 west to St. Paul, NE. Continue from there on NE92 until it meets NE2. Take NE2 all the way to Thedford. From Thedford, go north on US83.

The Nebraska Sandhills are quite an interesting experience. I'd suggest you include them, which is why I'm advocating for the NE2/US83 routing.

If, when in the Sandhills, you find you are enjoying yourself, you'd get some bonus points for detouring off US83 and onto the Brownlee Road.
