One of the major challenges after retirement to a flexible travel schedule is what to do with your beloved pet. Several options are available for in-country travel but overseas travel involves more planning. Finding good friends with their own dogs and room is the best solution. Usually a several week absence is involved. If you are able, this is safe and the kindest approach. Dogs tend to live in the moment and joyfully embrace loving caretakers and fellow for legged friends. Sadie, our Snoodle, is off to visit with Barb and Bob, along with Jack and Katie, for spring camp experience.
