The Worst Thing About Working at Pet Camp

This is a guest blog by Michelle Barrera. I almost never editorialize on blogs written by the Counselors, but this blog is amazing. It is both uplifting and sad, and, if I may, very much worth the few minutes it will take you to read it. Mark. This week I had the pleasure of meeting […]

Road Tripping This Summer?

For obvious reasons, road tripping is all the rage this summer. Whether it’s renting an RV or just packing up the car and getting out of San Francisco (or wherever you are) without getting on a plane or, dare we mention it, a cruise ship, road trips are the vacation du jour (du week, du […]

No Trade War – Just Protect Pets

Reasonable people might have differing views on the effectiveness of protectionist policies when it comes to protecting the country’s economic health; no one should differ when it comes to installing protectionist policies to protect the health of the country’s dogs! Currently there is no unified policy ensuring the health of dogs imported into the United […]
