    Dog Mountain: St.Johnsbury, Vermont

    $0.00

    Dog Mountain came to our attention when Susie and I were at Camp Gone to the Dogs.  The proceeds from an auction at the end of our week at camp were dedicated to the support of Dog Mountain in northeastern Vermont near St.Johnsbury. Unfortunately our schedule did not allow for a visit on this trip, since we were traveling up the western side of the state into Canada on our way to Montreal.

  4. Cookbook

    Cookbook: Echo Park,California

    $0.00

    I love to report to you places that are special, in an unusual way! I like to use the word a little mysterious to describe this market. I love the boutique feeling of this small 500 square foot space. Everything is the bestest and the freshest ( Blondee wording). They sell out early so make sure you can go early. Their staff always makes you feel so much at home here too!

  6. Firebird Cafe

    Firebird Café: Essex Junction, VT

    $0.00

    After leaving Montpelier we decided to start looking for a place to have lunch as we approached Burlington. We exited just before Burlington, but couldn’t find any restaurants close to I-89. Since we had our Garmin GPS to get back on track, we continued about five miles down the road until we came to Essex Junction and saw the Firebird Café on the left-hand side. Since this was obviously a local place and not a fast-food chain, we decided to stop and check it out.

    Vermont Information Center and Montpelier

    $0.00

    After visiting and making our purchases at the King Arthur Flour complex, Susie and I headed back south on I-91 to I-89 to head north toward Canada. Only a short way up the road we saw the signs that a Vermont Information Center was just ahead. We pulled into the rest stop so Susie and I could both answer the call of nature. We were amazed at what we found there.

  11. Maine Coast

    Off to the Maine Coast

    $0.00

    At dinner in the camp dining hall on Tuesday evening our new friends Tom and Carole Persia (Rascal’s humans) told us that based on the weather forecast that they were going to take a midweek break and go to Manchester, NH on Wednesday, June 5.  Wednesday appeared to be the nicest day for a side road trip since a front was moving in Thursday evening and Friday looked to be a dreary day. Thus Susie and I decided to head into New Hampshire ourselves, since we had never been there before.

  13. Chelsea Royal Diner

    Chelsea Royal Diner: West Brattleboro, Vermont

    $0.00

    On our arrival at camp on Sunday, June 2, it was a warm to hot summer day. Our room was on the second floor of Marlboro North and fortunately we brought a fan to help cool things down. Of course a front moved through and the rest of the week was cool, but for a couple of Southerners cool water and iced drinks were imperative.

    On the Road to Marlboro

    $0.00

    After a night of rest in Albany, NY, Susie was ready to roll to dog camp registration at the camp located at Marlboro College in Marlboro, VT. Fortunately the patrol team was only 70 miles away, so could make a leisurely drive to Marlboro taking in the interesting sites and places along the way. Registration was from 12:30 to 2:30 pm so we had time to have a good breakfast, load up and enjoy the drive down NY 7 and VT 9.

    One of Susie’s many good friends, in this case a human one, told her about a marvelous camp for dogs and their significant others in the beautiful setting of Vermont. Susie’s ears perked up immediately with the familiar “let’s go” look on her face. She made it clear to her daddy that he should check in to this.
