Park Quest #7: Dog Friendly Fort Wellington National Historic Site Prescott, Ontario
That’s why Victor loved Fort Wellington National Historic Site in Prescott, Ontario, Canada.
I’m not saying Fort Wellington stinks, just the opposite: it’s an ideal stretch and learn stop along the Toronto to Ottawa journey, about 10 minutes from the TransCanada highway.
Travel Rockton ON: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Fair (with my dog).
Now Pavlo Pottery is selling limited-edition pottery mugs for $30 each … and Saturday, October 10, 2017, I gleefully selected from the first round of NSD mugs fresh out of the kiln – mine’s number 11.
Park Quest #6: Victor does the Rideau Canal, Ottawa during Canada 150
Canal locks and dogs, who knew? Victor, my adventurous terrier, is running along the cement walkway above Ottawa’s historic Rideau Canal as if he has somewhere to be. Victor’s looking particularly dapper in his handmade cowboy-themed collar and bowtie. Keeping him cute gets us off-leash forgiveness and today even positive attention can’t deter his focus. […]
One dog, one drive-in and one night of kick ass Wonder Woman.
I’ll go almost anywhere if I can bring my dog, and sometimes try my luck at a place I can’t. But when a reader emails me with a dog-friendly suggestion, I have to follow up. Plus, I really wanted to see the film Wonder Woman before spoilers, well, spoiled it. That’s how I ended up […]
Park Quest #5: Southwold Earthworks Historic Site (and dog run?)
Southwold Earthworks near St. Thomas, Ontario, is a strange serene off-the-beaten path locale you’ll likely have all to yourself if you can find it. Completely enclosed by a fence, it’s also an ideal dog park. But don’t tell Parks Canada I said that. Southwold Earthworks is a free Parks Canada National Historic Site located along […]
Travel Collingwood, ON: Dog-friendly Apple Pie Trail combines culinary tourism and canine love
“Can I bring my dog here and have lunch on your patio?” I ask Bob Giffen of Giffen’s Country Market in Glen Huron, a five-generation family operation in along Ontario’s Apple Pie Trail near Georgian Bay in Canada. “Of course,” he says. “And you can walk the trails long the pond and through the orchard […]

Dog-friendly Elora, Ontario: Easy Dog Trails, Arty Vibe, and Fur Friendly B&B
For me, the Elora Gorge will always be about picnicking and hiking – walking actually – with dogs. From May to October, it’s an easy scenic three-kilometre walk along clearly groomed paths, and stairs with railings that overlook a 22-metre drop in places with a clear view of waterfalls. Bring a camera.
Travel Pennslyvania: Day 8 Pet-Friendly Amusement Park on The Red Roof Road Trip with the Dog
The Pioneer Train at Knoebels Amusement Resort is one of three rides you can do with your dog. I found this out from a couple also traveling here with their dog, just before the three of them climbed on the boat ride. The Grand Carousel is apparently the third.
Day 7: On The Red Roof Road Trip with the Dog we find a Pup Cup in Virginia
My dog Victor got a ‘pup cup’ – one scoop of vanilla ice cream with a dog biscuit on top. He didn’t eat the cookie (he’s been very fussy on this trip). But he did finish the ice cream in the seating area outside the building – the only seating area. Fortunately, there’s a drinking fountain.
