  1. Rainbow Bridge and American Falls by night

    Heading Home from Canada: Where are the sheep?

    $0.00

    After our two night stay in Niagara Falls, Canada, it was finally time to head home.  The other adventures in the Niagara Falls area will appear later in the Guest Patrol, since they are not primarily related to pet travel. These will include the fireworks show on Sunday night, a visit to a large Buddhist temple and exploring the river down from the Falls, and the ride up to the Falls on the Maid of the Mist. Obviously Susie would not have enjoyed the fireworks display, nor would she appreciate the soaking we received near the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.  The pet friendliness of the Fallsview Hotel made it possible to make these short local side trips knowing that Susie was well cared for when I was gone whether for a meal or to see a site unsuited for pets.

  4. Canadian Rockies by Horseback

    Canadian Rockies by Horseback

    $0.00

    Each summer some of my friends and I try to do an equestrian vacation.  In early 2016, one friend, who lives in Canada, discovered the web page for the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies (www.trailridevacations.com). After looking at this myself, we decided this would be our trip for 2016 and sent in our deposits. We were soon joined by 2 of my friends from Georgia and another friend from Ohio. Our trip would be in Waterton Lakes National Park in the Province of Alberta, Canada, the sister park to Glacier National Park in Montana. None of us had been to this park before.

    ZIKA – The Latest Emerging Virus

    $0.00

    Just when you have gotten over the Ebola scare (though you will hear about it again), here comes another viral infection though spread by mosquitoes.  Zika virus was first identified in Uganda in 1947 in monkeys and the first verified human infection occurred in 1968.  Since then it has smoldered in countries near the equator where 2 strains have evolved, one in Africa and one in Asia.  The first infections outside of Africa and Asia occurred in Micronesia in 2007.  Since then, the virus has spread throughout the southern Pacific islands and arrived in South America a few years ago.  Dense populations of both humans and the vector mosquito has caused Zika to explode in Central and South America.  At the time of this article, about 20 cases have been reported in the US, all from people who traveled to areas where the disease is present (such as Brazil).

    Comfort Inn & Suites: Grenada, Mississippi

    The Fourth of July is a day full of celebration, but not every member of the family enjoys the activities that come with this festive holiday. Our four-legged pets are ones that aren't necessarily fond of all the fireworks bursting in the sky. According to the pet experts at Ask.Vet [https://ask.vet/]—a service that lets you text licensed vets for quick advice—July 4th is one of the most dangerous pet holidays, and pet owners shouldn't take it lightly.
