Quebec City Frescos – A Wonderfully Pet Friendly Activity!

Quebec City Frescos – A Wonderfully Pet Friendly Activity!

We don’t often like to go to the same place twice, so what do you do when family obligations take you back to somewhere you’ve already been more than once?  To avoid boredom, you have to think a little outside the box! We love Quebec City. To say it is beautiful would truly be an [...]

Legalizing Guardianship and Making Sure your Pet Gets Home when Traveling!

My Mom had major surgery a month ago (she is doing awesome – no worries!) and that got us thinking: we need to legalize a few things and ensure that everything is clear in case of an emergency. The bipeds want to get powers of attorney drawn up and … (gulp) wills. Oh, how we [...]

Flying Lufthansa with an In Cabin Pet!

Flying into Greece – Our first Glimpse! Ah Lufthansa … I just don’t know what to think.  On the one hand you provided us with some of the best customer service ever and on the other hand … *shakes head*… what a disaster. Deutsche Lufthansa, known simply as Lufthansa is Germany’s major airline and the [...]

Are You Flying to Munich (MUC)? A Dogs Airport Review

Are You Flying to Munich (MUC)? A Dogs Airport Review

It has been a long … long… time since the bipeds have been so utterly impressed with an airport. I know, an airport sounds boring right? But bear with me as I tell you why Munich Airport (MUC) is a completely different beast. As the second busiest airport in Germany in terms of passenger traffic (behind [...]

What Dog Owners Ought to Know About Knowlton – Eastern Townships – Quebec

The Knowlton Falls Located along the shores of Lake Brome in the Eastern Township area of Quebec, you’ll find the village of Knowlton.  It was once part of the Most Beautiful Villages of Quebec Association  but sadly has fallen a little out of favor in the last few years.

Local Treasure – Pet Friendly Boat Ride On The Rideau Canal – Ontario

Local Treasure – Pet Friendly Boat Ride On The Rideau Canal – Ontario

Getting some Sugar from Marlene! There is nothing better than out of town guests to make you try some touristy “stuff” in your own city and see your home turf with fresh eyes.  I discovered this when Brad visited, when Suzanne visited and again more recently when Marlene, Stewart, Cocopuff and Dusty came for a [...]

Flying Olympic with an In-Cabin Pet

Flying Olympic with an In-Cabin Pet

When our wonderful travel agent Danielle informed Mom that the only way to get from Athens to Sofia was to fly with Olympic Air… Mom’s eyebrows rose very high. In fact I recall her asking: “Are you certain?” and there was a pause and then a head nod. Mom sat in her chair and I [...]

Staying With a Dog at The Sofitel Athens Airport Hotel – Greece

Staying With a Dog at The Sofitel Athens Airport Hotel – Greece

Art at the Sofitel Athens Airport! I have wanted to try out a Sofitel Hotel for some time now. I almost did when we went to Paris, but a change of plans landed us in a charming little “real Parisian hotel” instead. No regrets there at all.  And because we tend to stay in apartments [...]
