Vacation Dilemma

Owning pets is a true joy — but what to do when traveling? Like finding a good hair stylist, discovering a good kennel — with openings! — can be tricky. I was delighted on Saturday to visit a relatively new facility, It’s a Dog’s Life. I opened the door braced for the worst and was pleasantly surprised. No yucky odor, stench, or hint of wet dog! Not only did the facility smell fine, but the owner was sweet and friendly, showing us around the kennels and exercise areas with enthusiasm. And I loved the decor! The painted paws and puppy, shown above, are a sign of how much the owners care about quality. They also displayed pictures of their own pets and day care clients. I will vacation in a couple of weekends without a bit of worry for the care of my dogs. 🙂


  1. All dog lovers understand exactly where you’re coming from. Our Golden Retriever is so much part of the family that she just can’t be dumped somewhere…she has to be in a place where TLC is the primary priority.

    So glad you found a that kind of place!

  2. Don’t forget you have friends who are willing to help you too.

  3. This looks good. Wish it were here. I want to get to London to a funeral this weekend but it looks to be impossible with the two new adopted dogs as I don’t feel I can put them into a kennel situation.
