Great Dog-friendly Travel Value Today Only on dogtrotting.net

Great dog-travel opportunity … Today only! “If I can’t take my dog, I’m not going,” someone said to me recently, and I thought, “Me, too,” which is the reason my dog Victor and I recently went on a dog-friendly Michigan Cider Mill tour. (More about that soon). Clearly, we were talking about travelling, but the […]

Close to Home: Caledonia K9 Fun Zone and Local Dog Show

What dog travel awaits us this weekend? Turns out, we didn’t need to stray far from home.

Tonight we’re pawing around Spencer Smith Park in Burlington, Ontario along Lake Ontario amid the Festival of Lights show.

After driving to Michigan curled up in our new Solvit Dog Car Cuddler (my dog Victor, not me), then attending The Rochester […]

PawsWay, in Toronto, Ontario, will have you tearing up reading the tributes to brave and intuitive hero animals whose photos hang in its Purina Animal Hall of Fame, one of several things to see here. Or it did me, the first time I visited Purina PawsWay – a unique amalgamation:  part hall of fame, part […]

Two Dogs, One Quest to Albion Falls, Hamilton, Ontario

As cars whiz by we’re walking for almost 10 minutes along a busy road. We’re separated from traffic by a metal guardrail extending along side a worn dirt path. Victor, my 10-year-old schnoodle, is in front pulling on the leash like he’s in charge of Santa’s sleigh. Sasha and her fur daddy are behind us. […]
