Happy National Dog Day

this video is so beautiful and sums up how great dogs are… So God Made a Dog

Appreciate your best friend today and every day. They deserve so much love and care from us for all they do and who they are.

Took Cici into a supermarket because there is a bank branch there and it was too too hot outside in the car. 107 degrees today supposed to be. Well, everyone loved her and she had to kiss everyone. She also was slipping and sliding on the floor next to me in the scooter cart. Funny to watch her as always.  Love that dog so much.  My polka dot princess is so silly.

Appreciate your dog !  (Lots of treats and belly rubs)!

Recent travels in California

well, Cici and I are traveling at the moment. And it has been difficult, folks due to numerous circumstances which I guess is best explained below in the link.

As we drove from Carson City, Nevada, (where I very much enjoyed going to the Hot Springs and Cici enjoyed being part of a pack of Jack Russells (three) and conquered using a doggie door), we made the “mistake” of going via Highway 299, which I thought was not too twisty and windy but WAS not only that but also HOT HOT HOT (weather), SMOKY from all of the fires, and lots of road work going on. Then when I decided to not go back that way to make our way south, the 101 was not at all as twisty and windy as I recalled. So either I have faulty memory or what?

We stopped in Williams, CA and stayed at a very nice not pet friendly Ramada Inn. Since Cici is my service dog, we were able to stay there anyhow.

We also stopped in Santa Rosa, and at the Solar Institute in Hopland. It was good to see improvements there and we got to see a tiny home (89 square feet) up close and personal. They rent it out for $79-89 a night and it is TINIER than TINY !!!!

We did manage to meet some really kind folks in Arcata, CA (Welcoming Center), treats galore and this photo of Cici…  thanks Leah !

we wanted to see the trees (and did but for much too short a time)…

in our nifty new used Jeep and popup camper (don’t even get me started about how challenging it is to drive and park one of these)… suffice it to say that I have massacred a few bushes and thought that I was blocked and unable to get going on quite a few occasions but thanks to kind strangers and prayers been able to get out of REALLY tight spots !!!!

Booking a pet friendly hotel

https://www.yahoo.com/travel/8-ways-to-spot-a-lousy-hotel-when-booking-online-125266375997.html

another way to avoid a lousy hotel is to see if it is listed in our dog travel guide. We will tell you what we liked about the place, whether the place is dog tolerant or super dog friendly, and how much fun (or not) that we had there.

Plus, we will tell you all about the dog friendly activities in the neighborhood including pet friendly wineries, campgrounds, beaches, hiking trails and where you can dine with Fido, and much more.
