Who knew winter would be so popular in Ontario’s cottage country? The people at Arrowhead Provincial Park near Huntsville, Ontario did. In fact, opened in 2018 is the new Visitor’s Centre, with floor-to-ceiling fireplace and inside the ‘warm up’ area, designed to efficiently rent skates, cross-country skis (skate or classic style) and snowshoes to thousands […]
Wine, books and pets … these are a few of my favourite things. Basically, they are my favourite things and all three come together at Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar in Asheville, North Carolina. Books and champagne, in glasses with dog silhouettes on them. And dogs (on leashes, of course) wandering through four […]
Weekend with the dogs. Best idea ever. Only thing is, I don’t have a cottage. So, I’m renting at Woodhaven Country Lodge in Ontario, Canada. The minute I arrive, owner Michael walks me through the door and says, “Don’t worry about them jumping on the couch and bed,” pointing to my dogs. “I don’t care […]

(More about that soon). Clearly, we were talking about travelling, but the […]
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.
Then I do what I’ve done before looking for a place in a strange city to let my crazy terrier Victor run free after a long drive: I pull up beside someone walking a dog. Actually, the only person I can find walking a dog. I guess everyone is at the dog park.
I found the Stouffville leash-free park at the end of a dead-end street behind the Walmart plaza, just where he said it would be – only today the road to the dog park is lined with cars. Many cars.
