Boarding your Chihuahua

Boarding your Chihuahua Every year at the end of August our family goes away to a festival in the Laurentian mountains in Quebec. My husband teaches, my daughter runs around with her friends and I relax and listen to music all day long by the lake. This year was the first year we've had to consider what to do with Farfl.

What Do You Do With Your Dog When You Go On Vacation? My husband and I had planned a trip to England for a few days. Michael is a writer and was invited to appear at Jewish Book Week in London.  A fantastic opportunity for him to promote his work to the British market and a perfect excuse for me to get back home, eat fish and chips and drink real beer.
