I've had my little Norman Alexander for 5 months now and he is a very good traveler. This summer Norman's biggest adventure was going to Las Vegas. Luckily his grandparents and aunt watched him while I went out on the town. Recently I stumbled upon California Dog Friendly Events and was happily surprised by the list. The Dog Days of Summer event at Cardiff by the Sea sounds like the perfect outing for a beach and animal lover like myself. In my "research" I was also happy to learn that Best Western , La Quinta hotels, and the Red Roof Inn are pet and budget friendly.

Side Note: I am always working on my goal of moving to the islands so I was happy to see that if we moved to the USVI , Norman would not have to be quarantined and could easily adjust to his new diggs. But for now we will continue our California life and keep dreaming about entering Norm into Wagapalooza the island version of the Westminster Dog Show on St. John.
