RV, Cottage or Tent with the dog… What’s your preference for dog-friendly travel?

Admittedly, I’ve got this romantic idea of jumping in an RV, packing up the dog and two cats, and hitting the open road across North America – yes, Canada and parts of the U.S. I’ve never been to mid-west America. Only thing is, I have no idea how to do that and know nothing about […]

Happy New Year: Testing Our Dog Leg Brace at the Festival of Lights, Burlington, ON

Welcome to the Burlington, Ontario annual Festival of Lights Show in Spencer Smith Park along Burlington Bay. It’s been one year since my cocker-cross dog, Victor, was fitted for a back-leg brace.

Enjoy a Spicy Fall: 5 New Pumpkin Pet Products for Dogs

Fall might be pumpkin magic for some, but for me pumpkin season doesn’t start until I see bins of pumpkins in the grocery stores and jack-o-lanterns in the windows. Dog-themed carvings, even better. Clearly pumpkin lattes are off limits for our furry friends, but pumpkin pleasures are still on the menu for Fido – especially […]

Sometimes, that’s easier said than done especially if, like me, you don’t plan six weeks ahead: “No appointment available tomorrow? The next day? Not until next week?” […]
