My dog, Roxy, joins me in all kinds of adventures. When I went paddle boarding for the first time, I noticed several dog paddlers of the canine kind. Big dogs and little dogs.

I haven't camped for a long time, so when the opportunity arose and my husband and I had a free weekend, we pulled out the camping gear, shook off the spider webs and headed for Turquoise Lake near Leadville, Colorado.

How to Travel with Dogs
I only considered traveling with one dog. A yappy dog. A dog who on occasion tears around the house in a tirade of twists and turns, kicking up dust and scattering rugs in her wake.

Random Acts of Chat – He was kidding, Roxy
With several California trips on the horizon and a vacation in Vancouver and Whistler planned for the end of July, I had to scramble to book a kennel for our Bichon, Roxy.
