Yes, it’s official, the former Canine Ambassador of Mendocino County has been named Director of Barketing! DogTrekker’s Research Lab, Kayla, recently traveled to the town of Philo in the Anderson Valley for a meet and greet with Hairy and to extend DogTrekker’s Paw of Approval.
As profiled in DogTrekker’s May 4, 2011 newsletter, Wine, Waves, Wilderness, Hairy Putter, a Cairn terrier (the same breed as Toto in the Wizard of Oz) travels the county with uprights in tow, sniffing out the most pet-friendly lodging, dining, shopping, attractions and activities. It’s all reported in first-person on Hairy’s Blog. “It is with plenty of tail-wagging excitement that, as Director of Barketing for Visit Mendocino County, I will be able to extend the paws of hospitality on behalf of the county to the world,” barks Hairy.
Just a couple hours north of San Francisco, Mendocino County is rich with experiences that you and your four-legged friend can share year-round. Whether you and your pooch are headed up Highway 101 north through Hopland, or choose to wind through the Anderson Valley to the coast on Highway 128, you’ll find the county to truly be pet-passionate.
