What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Nice – Côte d’Azur – France – Part I

Our pied-à-terre while on the French Riviera … pied-à-terre … “foot on the ground,” a small living unit some distance away from an individual’s primary residence … pied-à-terre on the French Riveria … Doesn’t that sound just so fine?  And, oh, it was! Our pied-à-terre was in Nice, not too far from the lovely old [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Menton – Côte D’azur – France

What Dog Owners Ought to Know about Menton – Côte D’azur – France

The colours, the ceramic doves… lovely! Since our trip to Florence, we’ve not found many spots that we felt we could call home – as in, “We could live here!” home. We always enjoy our visits to different locations, but few make us dream of staying and putting down roots. That was until Menton – [...]

What Dog Owners Need to Know About Èze Village – Côte D’Azur – France

What Dog Owners Need to Know About Èze Village – Côte D’Azur – France

Perched high up on an impressive cliff on the French Riviera is a jewel of a medieval town. It’s a wonderful place, one of the best medieval towns you could visit. Even with a fair amount of crowding, Èze is a must see. My tip? Get there early … as in before 9:00 a.m. early! [...]

What Dog Owners Should Know About Smiths Falls – Ontario – Canada

Promising right? One morning in August, Dad woke up and, just like that, announced, “Let’s go discover Smiths Falls.” Since Mom and I are always up for a little adventure, we quickly got ourselves ready and off we went: me with a dried sausage treat in my mouth, Mom and Dad with their morning vegan [...]

My First Travel Massive – Thank You, Philadelphia!

My First Travel Massive – Thank You, Philadelphia!

Have you ever noticed how you’ll do things when away from home that you haven’t, but could, do at home? It’s strange, right? Why is it travel invites us to explore and meet others in a way we don’t on home turf? Well, that happened to us in July when I attended my very first [...]

What Every Dog Owner Ought to Know About Philadelphia – Pennsylvania – USA

What Every Dog Owner Ought to Know About Philadelphia – Pennsylvania – USA

As with all big city reviews, I am daunted by the task of sharing enough information to do justice to what we experienced in Philadelphia without being too long winded or bogged down with details. I am feeling even more trepidation because, unlike other big cities such as Paris and Rome which have shining posts [...]

Walking the Wissahickon Valley Park Trail (Forbidden Drive) with Your Dog

Walking the Wissahickon Valley Park Trail (Forbidden Drive) with Your Dog

Something I love about living in our Nation’s Capital is that we have the advantages of the city with quick access to the country. A quick hop in our car and 20 minutes from home, we are in the deep woods over the Canadian shield, on a trail in the Gatineau Park. We have the [...]

Enjoy the Wonder of Philadelphia’s Magic Garden With Your Dog!

Enjoy the Wonder of Philadelphia’s Magic Garden With Your Dog!

One of the oddest pet-friendly places we discovered in Philadelphia was the colourful, eccentric, and mind boggling Philadelphia Magic Garden. We stumbled upon this mosaicked folk art and sculpture garden when we did a Google search for the top 20 things to see or do in Philly. The Magic Garden kept showing up in our [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know About Atlantic City, New Jersey

When the bipeds said we were going to Atlantic City and would walk the Boardwalk, I was eager to go! I imagined bygone days when men wore hats and ties and women wore pearls as they strolled the Boardwalk, and was looking forward to seeing a modern version of that. But I was sadly disappointed.

What Every Dog Owner Ought to Know About Brigantine – New Jersey – USA

Four days at the beach is a perfect way to start a holiday and an even better way to recover from a terrible cold. Ask Mom. Suzanne of The Boomeresque, her husband Steve, and sweet pup Dino invited us to come “to the shore” with them before we visited Philadelphia. As luck would have it, Mom [...]
