waterfall at Chutes Provincial Park, Ontario

Chasing Waterfalls at Chutes Provincial Park (with the dog) … plus free park day!

Sometimes you have to go chasing waterfalls… especially if it’s easy.

At Chutes Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada, it’s easy – and dog-friendly.

Located one kilometre off Highway #17 in Massey, Ontario, it’s the best provincial park between Sudbury and Sault Ste Marie, and the best stop if you’re travelling to either city from Toronto.

Dogtrotting goes to the cats… wait what? meowfest 2019 here we come!

Dogtrotting.net interview with meowfest 2019 organizer Sarita Fichtner.    I don’t talk about this enough, but I was first a cat-lady before my dog Victor dropped in my lap.

Specifically, I’m in the ‘Hillsboro’ neighbourhood. ‘Fetch’ is the next sign, about half a block away from Fido. “Awesome,” I think. There’s an independent pet store here a block long.

Dog on Huntsville Ghost Walk

Travel Huntsville, AL: Doggin’ the Paranormal on the Huntsville Ghost Walk

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.

Travel Myrtle Beach, SC: Taking the dog? Here’s what you need to know (and more)

“This is the best layover ever,” says the Spirit Airlines flight attendant petting my dog at The Sheraton Hotel in Myrtle Beach during BlogPaws, [formally] an annual pet bloggers conference.
