Summer Vacation for Pets
by Kate Spencer
As summer brings vacations for people, so it also brings vacations for pets.
While I hopped on a plane and jetted off on a summer getaway to Alaska, 9-month-old Reux jumped into my dad's truck and headed down to enjoy a weeklong romp across my parents' 11 acres.
I went hiking and camping in Alaska's Denali National Park, and Reux went racing and yipping across the family homestead. As the photo below shows, he had a pretty good time playing with the hose outside.
Share your pet's summer vacation stories! Did your pet travel with you? Did you have a petsitter come over to your house? Or did your pet get a vacation of its own at a kennel or with a family member or friend?
