DogTrekker, Emily S., wrote to us about her recent experience taking her 11-year old German shorthaired pointer rescue, Boomer, on his first real camping trip.

“We met up with our friends at Veteran’s Memorial Campground in Monterey. Monterey seemed like the most logical choice since most places in the area are very dog friendly. We set up the tents and went down to Cannery Row where Boomer got to explore lots of new sights and sounds and smells–if it were warmer we might have stopped and had lunch or coffee on one of the restaurant patios since many of them are dog friendly including Ghirardelli! Most places simply request that your dog be leashed and well behaved. He really enjoyed the birds and all of the friendly people that stopped to say hello,” wrote Emily. more »
