The dog-friendly Distillery District tour is a mix of entertaining facts and recounts of ghost sightings carefully researched. The company claims it verifies all stories by listening to first-hand accounts from ghost witnesses and confirming historical facts surrounding the sighting.
Victor, my terrier cross, is frantically turning circles while digging the grass. We’re standing in front of the Howard Weeden House built in 1819, allegedly the most haunted building in Huntsville, Alabama. Victor’s intense and determined, pawing on the ground like there’s mice beneath the soil surface.
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.
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. […]
Trying to get Victor to drink while we travel, heading out for day trips, festivals and even dog parks in the summer is a challenge. He’ll drink a bit from a bowl, if I fill it to the top. But he only drinks a bit. Then I dump water over the pavement because we have to move on.

The hotel is crawling with furry friends; the Spirit employees staying here don’t seem to mind. One tells me he used to be a dog groomer. […]
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made an appearance at Muddy Paws winery festival for dogs. Ok, no he didn’t. But his dog cookie likeness did, June 8 and 9, 2017. Trudeau’s image in the shape of an all-natural wheat-free treat is the latest from Spoil the Dog Bakery based in St. Jacobs, Ontario. It looks […]
Lake kayaking is a lot like taking a light shower in sewage … and equally enjoyable. For the second time in my life, I tried kayaking – this time at Parc de la Riviere-des-Mille-Iles in Laval, Quebec, about 20 minutes outside of Montreal. The good news is sitting in a small plastic boat almost level […]
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 […]
