Susan and I rented a car, and took a road trip to Nanaimo yesterday. We've just found out that no airline will fly dogs during December, and Barkley's way too anxious to be kept in a regular kennel's jail-like accommodations. The only alternative we could find--called Camp Happy Dogs--is in Nanaimo. Although the city isn't anything impressive, and despite the weather, the drive was gorgeous.
It had been a while since I'd travelled a highway that made my ears pop -- but unlike Mexico, the Trans Canada has guardrails.
